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: Deadpool The Duck #1

deadpool_the_duck__1Sometimes I think that Marvel are milking Deadpool for everything he’s worth, plus a little bit more; case in point Deadpool The Duck. I can think of no reason for Marvel to mix Deadpool and Howard the Duck, but as a Howard fan who can take or leave Deadpool, I was curious to see the inevitable train wreck that would result from their combination as it happened.

Upon opening the comic, it seemed even Marvel were unsure as they “haphazardly present” the story to you, the reader. Needless to say, my expectations were pretty low, and I could hear the train starting to derail.

And yet the train never left the tracks.

Deadpool The Duck #1 wasn’t anywhere close to being the train wreck that I expected. The Deadpool bits will feel familiar to anybody who has read anything featuring him in the last year or so (and there’s been a lot of that, so I’m sure you have some familiarity), and the sections featuring Howard were as biting as I hoped they’d be. Artistically, the comic is solid, and here the depiction of Howard is another highlight.

The only issue I have is how long it takes from the initial set up of the joining of Howard and Deadpool to the act itself – we clearly know it’s going to happen, so why take your time doing it?

Story: 7.0 Art: 8.0 Overall: 7.5 Recommendation: Read
(But if you’re a fan of either character, buy it. I think this’ll be a solid series once it gets going)

Nancy A. Collins (Swamp Thing, Sunglasses After Dark) has called upon some of today’s finest creative talents — including Gail Simone, Steve Niles, Joe R. Lansdale, Devin Grayson, Stephen R. Bissette, and many more — to celebrate Vampirella’s 45th Anniversary by crafting an anthology of twisted tales, bizarre bedtime stories, and fearsome fables in the tradition of the original Warren magazines, each featuring everyone’s favorite sexy, kick-ass vampire-turned-monster hunter. While exploring the Transylvanian castle she’s recently inherited, Vampirella discovers a strange old book of “Feary Tales” that seems oddly familiar. Upon opening it, she is sucked inside its pages and lands in a weird alternate reality, where she is compelled by a disembodied voice calling itself ‘The Storyteller’ to live out each of the ‘feary tales’ if she ever hopes to return to reality.
