AXIS tie-in! Our wall-crawling hero is stalked by a classic Spider-Slayer! Wait. This isn’t a Spider-Man book. So what is a Spider-Slayer doing here? Deadpool had better find out before it mistakes one red-clad, wisecracking hero for another, and mashes DP into spider-paste! And if that isn’t enough, you know that totally secret thing that’s gonna happen in Axis? Yeah-that’s totally gonna affect Deadpool! Oh man, if only you guys knew. Get ready for a diff erent spin on the Merc with the Mouth!
COLLECTING: DEADPOOL 35-40
The plot for this comic is centered more on the inversion that takes place. That inversion is focused on a select few who happened on an island, fighting the good fight then got whammied. How’s that for a thank you?
Imagine Deadpool going completely zen, ‘violence is not the answer- no guns allowed’ kind of zen. When you really think about it, it’s extremely believable.
Deadpool got a change of character, clothes and he exchanged his katanas for a turkey- inside joke, I guess. Of course you can guess that the Misses isn’t too happy about this.
Characters: Deadpool was awesome as well he usually is. Whether he’s killing everyone in sight or fixing up a garden, Deadpool is still the same wise guy. I liked the makeover but I’m glad it’s not permanent.
The wife was amazing as always. (Can we say her name now? Is it still a secret?)
The X-Men: I loved seeing these guys…Deadpool kind of, almost, sort of got invited to join the X-Men. He declined. I’ve never read an X-Men comic but if this was just a gist of it, then sign me up.
The Faux-Men: The X-Men from North Korea. Yes, I said North. I’d say that was weird but it’s really really not. When reading a Deadpool comic…expect anything.
Overall Thoughts: Many times we’ll find awesome guest characters but so far I’m loving these the most. Brian Posehn did it again! Amazing story. I loved the artwork as well. It was the perfect amount of gory and extremely detailed. I can’t wait to get to Vol.8
