What do you get when you take one cynical anthropomorphic duck (named Howard) and cross it with the smelliest (and most annoying) mercenary in the Marvel Universe? DEADPOOL THE DUCK! When Deadpool is sent on a mission from S.H.I.E.L.D. to capture a high-profile E.T. that is rampaging across the high plains, the snatch-and-grab turns out to be much more complicated than the Merc with a Mouth anticipated. One unfortunate wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time accident later leaves Deadpool and Howard fighting for control of the cutest mercenary the Marvel Universe has ever seen! Brought to you with words by Stuart Moore (CLOAK & DAGGER, THANOS: DEATH SENTENCE Novel) and art by Jacopo Camagni (DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS).

Review: Gamora #2

gamora__2The Gamora origin story continues its amazing start Gamora #2. Picking up where the explosive first issue left off we find Gamora headed to the wasteland planet of Ubilex in Thanos’ stolen space ship and headed for a crash landing. Klaxon is headed to the planet as well and they are both on the hunt for the half Badoon heir. Things don’t go as planned for either of them and the Badoon princess is more damn hell in a sort of dress than damsel in distress.

In a surprise turn of events, Gamora finds herself face to face with the Vestigal “intern” princess who has no idea who she is and luckily Gamora doesn’t either because they form a quick alliance against the zealot filled Oculus Cult. Things are off to a crazy but, amazing start and the couple of spoilers I just gave you don’t even touch the surface of all the good stuff that goes down in this issue.

Nicole Pelman‘s writing style is quick, clever and purposeful giving a richness to Gamora’s back story. There is clear motivation behind her action and even though the setting for this issue is literally out of this world the story she weaves is realistic and brilliant at its core. Every word and emotion is intense when it needs to be and cavalier when it has to be providing the reader with moments that feel real and current. Marco Checchetto‘s art work adds an extra layer of brilliance and realism to an already rich story. Every line seems to have been placed with great attention to detail from the pained faces in battle to the thoughtful contemplation in more “peaceful” moments, it gives the reader a sense of being in the story.

Overall issue #2 of Gamora is a great read from cover to cover. Even without reading issue #2 you can jump right into the story and feel like you’re not only part of it but, have a sense that you know what’s going on without Pelman dumbing down the content or spoon feeding you the story.
