Review: Deadpool #1

Deadpool #1

When it comes to  Deadpool, there has never been a character that everyone loves like him for so many different reasons. As he is relatable in a way that many readers find him both sensitive and mean simultaneously. Where he truly shines  is his comedic sensibility. This of course is an off shoot from his creator, Rob Liefeld, as he imbued the character with such great comic timing even in the early depictions, and that eventually morphed into other creators using the character to poke fun at the seriousness of comic books.

The character does something that Joker really has never done, actually be funny while doing horrendous things. This is exactly why we love the Merc with the Mouth, because it is all in good fun making this former villain a superhero. In Deadpool #1, he must kill a supervillain to join an elite group while trying to figure out what exactly is growing inside of him.

In the debut issue, we find Deadpool in a very compromising position under duress from the Harrower. Her reason for capturing Wade is to implant a symbiote of Carnage in him as an experiment. Meanwhile, 40 hours earlier, we find Wade looking through a file of Doc Ock. Deadpool is auditioning for an elite assassin group known as the Atelier. As he gets the terms of his audition, he knows it may impact his reputation as a hired gun. By the issue’s end, all the various plotlines come together slingshotting the series into the kinetic insanity we’d expect from this series and character.

Overall, Deadpool #1 is a hilarious issue that reminds fans why he is the funniest character in all of comic books. The story by Wong is outrageous. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a must buy for any longtime or casual Deadpool fan.

MARVEL’S TOP MERC IS BACK IN BUSINESS!
We all know Wade Wilson is one of the top mercenary/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he is simultaneously the most annoying one… but he’s pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as the Atelier. Now, he has 48 hours to kill one of the world’s most famous supervillains. Only problem? He’s been kidnapped, and something…strange…is GROWING INSIDE HIM. Things are going to get gross as writer Alyssa Wong (DOCTOR APHRA, IRON FIST) and artist Martin Coccolo (BANNER OF WAR) take out their pent up aggression on everyone’s pizza-faced, jabber-mouthed, misguided, hate-to-love, love-to-hate fave… Deadpool!
