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.

Review: Spider-Verse #3

Spider-Verse003Of all of the big crossovers to tie into the Secret Wars event for the summer, Spider-Verse is maybe the strangest of all of them.  The theme of Secret Wars has been to resurrect the old crossovers and to put them into the Secret Wars context, but Spider-Verse was in itself a very intricate and layered crossover as well, one which employed the use of every Spider-Man that had ever been written from across the multiverse.  It gave us a new version of the old Spider-Woman and two new Spider-Womans (all of whom are absent here) but it was also sometimes confusing and overly complicated.  It is also the most recent of crossovers, so the memories of it are still pretty fresh in the collective minds of the readers, which means it has a lot to compete with.

If this series has anything going for it, it is that it at least doesn’t dwell too much on all of that, neither of the ties to Spider-Verse nor of the ties to Secret Wars.  There is still a lot of Spider-people in this book, from regular Peter Parker all the way to Spider-Ham, but the focus remains on the threat posed by the Sinister Six.  As they came up against these villains, the heroes realize that they are ill-equipped to deal with them.  Although Spider-Man has handled them alone on several occasions, this proves that less might be more, as six Spider-Mans are ineffective in taking them down, and they are subsequently brought before Norman Osborne.  This segment ties in more closely to the Secret Wars crossover, yet still leaves it at a safe distance.  Instead the issue goes back to focusing on Gwen Stacey, one of the fan favorites of the past year and one of the characters pretty much guaranteed to return to the post-Secret WArs landscape at Marvel.

Secret Wars has been really effective at times in putting together fun takes on old stories, but it has also fallen a bit flat with others.  That Spider-Verse is so fresh hinders it, but the series doesn’t really dwell on it either, instead giving us what is essentially a fairly average comic, except for a few deeper moments with Gwen.  The first half of the issue might have easily been lifted from a comic from the 1980s, and it is only with Gwen towards the end that there is any redeeming material here.  It is fun at times, and a bit of a disappointment, but it at least provides some hope for an interesting resolution with the plot development at the end.
