Review: Deadpool: Too Soon? #1

deadpool-too-soon-1-cover

What do you get when you cross Deadpool, Forbush Man, Squirrel Girl, Spider-Ham, The Punisher, Ant-Man, Howard the Duck, Rocket and Groot? Murder, madness, mystery, and mayhem! Marvel’s biggest WHODUNIT yet!

Given the cast of characters involved in this superhero murder mystery, this Deadpool: Too Soon? #1 is both hilarious and sad at the same time. Despite the odd premise, it is an intriguing read. I’m curious to see how they manage to end this series given how the first issue wraps up.

The art by Reily Brown manages to flow well throughout the issue. Mystery and humor take turns being at the front and center of the plot and Brown’s art enhances it all. Brown shifts between those two atmospheres with ease.

Review: Deadpool: Too Soon? #1

deadpool-too-soon-1-coverDeadpool: Too Soon? #1 is insane in the best possible way from the first panel to the last. This issue showcases everything you love about the Merc with a Mouth. If this is your first foray into the world of Deadpool it’s a good start and you won’t be disappointed. Issue #1 of this arc treats us to more guest stars than you can shake a katana at and while Squirrel Girl, The Punisher, Spider-Ham, Howard the Duck, Ant-Man, Forbush Man, and Rocket & Groot seem like they wouldn’t be in the same comic book, in any part of the multiverse or on any timeline, it seems to work.

Deadpool, aka “the reason you’re reading this comic book” and Shiklah join together an elite (or as Deadpool puts it, the funniest) team of superheroes for a super secret mission. Someone has murdered the Forbush Man! Could someone be targeting some of the Marvel Universe’s funniest heroes for death? That’s certainly what Deadpool thinks – and he’s gathered a number of characters in a spooky old mansion (naturally) to help crack the case. Good thing Deadpool is known for his world-renowned investigative skills! But as more bodies start turning up, can these heroes solve the mystery before their goose is cooked?

Joshua Corin‘s writing is on point and is in line with the Deadpool brand. It’s quick and clever and I loved every word of it. Corin takes some of the most humorous , and one of the most deadly, characters in the Marvel universe and gives the readers something to laugh about. Even though the content is hella dark the delivery feels natural & unforced. The dialogue and interaction are exactly what you would want them to be in a mash up involving such a motley crew. No on acts out of character and it all seems extraordinarily natural and organic. Corin gives the readers a quick, page-turning read and the only problem I had with it is that it was over too soon.

Todd Nauck‘s artwork is on point, the detail is amazing and we get some pretty cool retro panels in The Avengers super secret underground lair. We are treated to art that looks like it’s moving and allows the reader to get caught up in the action. Not a frame is wasted and it feels more like a TV show or a movie than like a comic book and that’s not a bad thing. The visuals are on point with and, keep up with the sharp dialogue that Corin provides.

Overall this issue was everything I wanted and more than I expected. It was a nice call back to the comic books of my youth and reminded me of what I loved about comic books as a kid. It was cohesive, smart, well written., expertly drawn and a perfect start to a story arc. I look forward to seeing how this story plays out and if it keeps ending on such hard and enticing twists. I am totally in for the long haul and you should be too.
