Format: Paperback
To begin with, I'm on the fence about the current Deadpool writer (Daniel Way) and I hated Fabian Neitzc-...the Cable & Deadpool guy. When I say Deadpool should be written in this way, it's from a human point of view as Joe Kelly has crafted. Deadpool enjoys his madness. The style of writing is dark and satirical filled with pop culture references (Mid 90s if I remember right) and actually has jokes that go beyond sight gags. Fabian's way of writing Deadpool was more along the lines of a Jackass tv show character. He was over the top, random, and served no purpose other than to lighten the mood.

In volume 1 of Deadpool Classic you get an intro to the character. Mark Waid touches upon some of the mental problems within Deadpool, mostly his hatred of how he looks. But in Volume 2, and in Kelly's first run with the character, Deadpool is shown conflicted between doing the right thing, doing what he's paid to do (in the -1 issue) and the reader is genuinely able to feel sorry for this man. He becomes a tad psychotic, taking Blind Al prisoner and all (and it would've been explained WHY he did if Kelly had been allowed to take the series down the path he wanted it to). The conflict between Typhoid and Deadpool is brilliantly written. It gets even more complicated, and the hero is put into his paces in issues 12 and up, and hopefully those will be collected soon.

This is highly recommend for ANY fans of Deadpool: The new ones, the ones that enjoy his slapstick pointless insanity in C&D, and of course, those who've been following the Merc with a Mouth since he forced his way onto the pages in X-Force.

Deadpool Classic volume 2 includes arguably some of the best issues of Deadpool. A great read and a nice place to start for new readers. Joe Kelly is considered by many fans as the best Deadpool writer. During his run (Issues 1-33) he gave the character greater depth pushing Deadpool to question his place in the world. Plus he nails the pop culture references and black comedy. This book collects Deadpool 2-8 (Issue 1 was collected in Deadpool Classic volume 1) , Deadpool -1, and the Deadpool/Daredevil 1997 Annual.

Simply put, Deadpool 2-8 is excellent. During these issues Wade Wilson faces his Weapon X burdens, rival T-Ray, and his failing healing factor. On the advice of Siryn, LL&L, and Blind Al he begins to question his actions and adopts a more heroic nature which he must truly confront when Typhoid Mary enters his life. Memorable fights with the Hulk and Taskmaster also occur in this collection.

Deadpool minus 1 gives us an insight into the life of Wade Wilson before he became Deadpool, despite the man himself not featuring much in the issue at all. Instead the story focus' around Vanessa Carlysle/Copycat and Zoe Culloden from LL&L (the latter feauturing prominently in later Deadpool issues.) An enjoyable story which allows you to sympathise with what Deadpool has endured.

Along with issue 4, the Deadpool/Daredevil Annual is the highlight of this collection. And in my opinion the book is worth buying for the annual alone. Exceptional writing, faultless art, and the unlikely team-up of Matt Murdock and Wade Wilson is hilarious.

The only fault is that Issue 2 is printed quite dark and the text is a little blurry in some places. It is still very readable but is noticeable compared to the rest of the book.

This review will be short and possibly useless. If you don't know anything about Deadpool I'm not going to explain him, instead I'm going to explain why this book is so great. Joe Kelly 'Gets' Deadpool. He understand him as a character and how to write him, and he writes him as a real character with some depth and intelligence. He's still crazy, and he's still funny as hell but he's now written as an actual guy. Joe Kelly knew the character and how to write him, it shows, and it's great to read.

Following the Wolverine Origin movie, Marvel has smartly been upgrading the visibility of Deadpool in preparation for his own solo movie. This book collects the comic issues that are the high-water mark for the character. The Joe Kelly Deadpool perfectly balances dementia & violence with his desire to rise above his madness and act heroically, usually only to spiral down to the gutter again. Kelly wrote some of the issues in Deadpool Classic, Vol. 1 but this volume is almost entirely his work and the quality writing sells the character as no one has managed since. Honestly disturbing psychological trauma is interspersed with edgy humor (stealing Daredevil's seeing eye dog is my personal favorite) along with DP's trademark fourth-wall breaking commentary.

The "origin" issue with Copycat slows everything down a bit and I think it could have been left out of this collection but everything else flows nicely. As the movie gets underway I hope they draw most of the inspriation from the Kelly years, treating Deadpool/Wade Wilson as a character who doesn't stay static but actually develops and changes his ways a bit over time.

Drama, pathos, and comedy - what else could you ask for in a comic book?
