If you love your stories insane, twisted, and violent, pick this book up.

I really can't say enough about this series. David Lapham has created a world for Deadpool that is free from the baggage of Marvel Continuity and is instead free to craft stories where Baron Zemo is a minority-hunting neo-Nazi and the Taskmaster is a sexy (female) sadistic scout master who revels in the deaths of her scouts in their pursuit of her increasingly dangerous and *woah-damn* insane merit badges.

Kyle Baker, of course, knocks it out of the park on the art-end, too, with his cartoon caricature style that plays the comedy aspects as straight and zany as a Cary Grant flick, which only makes the disturbing bits all the more so.

Bottom line, if you like your screwball comedies on the dark side, have a thing for classing cartooning, and love your Deadpool minus the Marvel U restrictions, this one needs to become part of your collection.

Like the previous reviewer stated, hearing about a MAX take on Deadpool had me hoping for a similar MAX take on The Punisher that Garth Ennis delivered. While this first MAX storyarc starring our favorite "Merc with a Mouth" doesn't deliver the same kind of satisfaction that the MAX take on Frank Castle delivered, Deadpool MAX: Nutjob is plenty entertaining and enjoyable regardless. A majority of the story is told from that of Agent Bob; a hapless agent who is stuck acting as Deadpool's partner and winds up getting involved in all sorts of violent, bloody mishaps...and that's saying it lightly! Writer David Lapham (Stray Bullets, Daredevil VS Punisher) provides a looney enough script with even loonier situations, but it's the artwork of the great Kyle Baker that really gives this collected edition the fun and attitude that makes it so enjoyable. All in all, Deadpool MAX: Nutjob isn't perfect, but it is plenty enjoyable, fun, and rowdy; and I for one can't wait to see where the story goes from here.

After waiting for this collection to come out I was honestly hoping for quite a bit more payoff. Since the end leaves open the possibility of future installments, one can only hope the time spent on character building (the retcon-averse will have a nice spergfest over this book) will pay off there. I can understand the reasoning, though - people who pick this up on the stand at Barnes and Noble will pick it up because it's got the MAX stamp on it if they're not already Deadpool fans. So a bit of introduction is necessary. Unfortunately, unlike Ennis' "Born" and "In the Beginning" pieces for his MAX imprint of Frank Castle, the introduction for Deadpool is handled "haphazardly at length" and those unfamiliar are better suited to pulling his character page up on Wikipedia.

Ultimately I wish there was more of Deadpool and *much* less of Agent Bob in this book. Also, though the narrative grabs you (in some uncomfortable places at times), the artwork is all over the place, and short of the cursing and *very* neutrally-drawn nudity, didn't see much of a reason for this to be a "Max" title in and of itself. Unless it's the brief foray into homosexual BDSM at the beginning and *very* powerfully-worded white supremacist dogma is what earned it the badge.

Final verdict: I enjoyed reading it. I didn't love it, though, and if there are future installments I'll be waiting for the collections.

If you were hoping for a Deadpool GN in the style of Ennis' MAX treatment of The Punisher and Nick Fury, this ain't it. Definitely worth the read under twenty bucks, though.

Have to agree with previous reviewer that this is the best Deadpool ever (yes, I've read the Classics volumes). Lapham used the Max imprint to maximum effect. This is funny, twisted, perverse, crazy, and clever.

Ah Deadpool, you lovable loony toon. The story here is obviously a bit more edgier than the ones published for younger readers but it never really hits the hard R level. Comes close a few times so maybe not a good choice for your 12 year old nephew.

First of all I am a big fan of Deadpool, so it kills me to have to give this any less than a stellar review. I debated giving this 2 or even 1 star, but I love the character too much.

I read the other reviews saying that this was the best of Deadpool. I was expecting laugh out loud jokes, violence, wackiness, and crudeness. While the violence is there, it isn't that much more impressive than a regular Deadpool comic. Crudeness, yes, but there wasn't anything really funny here.

The good:

Deadpool is in it. Deadpool does one or two mildly humorous things.

Bob's relationship as the abused guy was kind of funny. (Don't want to give too much away)

The Bad:

Deadpool is in it. He is badly written, his back story is completely messed up (in more ways than one), but more specifically it doesn't follow cannon for most of it. His tragic background is so overblown that it just seems forced. He is a dog being led around on a leash by Bob, who is also a lame, badly written character.

Deadpool is supposed to be funny and sometimes poignant, but in this he just isn't either. I have trouble caring about the bigger, shadowy plot that is hinted at, and even find it difficult to connect with the characters on any level.

The artwork is atrocious. Some people might like it, I suppose, but I didn't like the style at all.

Many, many pages were dedicated to some white supremacist ranting. Okay, everyone knows what white supremacists believe in, you don't need to go on and on and on with some racist/ antisemitic BS for shock value. It wasn't funny, entertaining, or even shocking. Just obnoxious.

Overall I would have to say I am sorry that Deadpool didn't get the writer or artist he deserves. An uncensored DP comic could have been so, so much better. I am saddened and disappointed.
