I have been rather disappointed with the Marvel Noir series. I was stunned after reading this book that Deadpool's Noir story would be the one I enjoyed the best. A great Noir action book set after World War II. If you are a Deadpool fan or if you enjoyed the Bendis or Brubaker run on Daredevil then you will probably enjoy this book. I hope they do a sequel to it because they certainly could and I would be at the shop on Wednesday for it for sure.

Simply put, DEADPOOL PULP is one of the best Deadpool stories you'll ever read. Likewise, its the best "noir-style" comic that Marvel produced, even though it wasn't officially part of "Marvel Noir."

The artwork is dark, gritty, and pulpy... like most Ed Brubaker pulp comics; Daredevil, Criminal, Incognito, etc. A thoroughly enjoyable story that leaves you wondering, "Why aren't more comics this good?"

This was a great read. If you're into gritty, twisted noir themes, then this is for you. Although short, I loved the character redesign, the Cold War setting, the references to other popular media, history, etc. The art and presentation is well done, with heavy emphasis on light, shadow, and mood. I hope they make a sequel.

I bought the second part in a store.

I love the nostalgic feel to the illustrations. The story is epic, much better than the Marvel Noir series.
My only problem with the comic is that not too much deadpool humor is used. This is great anyway

By Sam Quixote TOP 1000 REVIEWER on August 24, 2011
Format: Paperback
Marvel takes some of its most beloved characters and transplants them to the early 20th century in this series of books, Noir. Deadpool gets the same treatment in "Pulp" placed as he is between WW2 and Vietnam. The plot is that America and Russia are deep in the Cold War and Outlaw is stealing a briefcase of nuclear secrets from the Americans for her Communist masters - what she didn't count on was her former lover, Deadpool, out to stop her.

The story is pulpy enough for the series, lots of men in hats and trenchcoats with guns in alleys, big band night clubs and plenty of smoking, shadows in every panel. Deadpool's uniform is redone to make it look more basic and he even looks better than he normally does.

There are some regular Deadpool fight scenes where the blades come out and the bizarre quips come as thick and fast as the blood, but mostly it feels more Raymond Chandler than your regular Marvel comic.

The artwork is really excellent, kind of like Sean Phillips' stuff, a shade Steve Epting, and the covers are exquisite. While the writing is never bad, it's not stellar either but keeps the story ticking over nicely until the explosive end.

The idea of putting Marvel heroes back in the 20th century and taking back their powers so that they're less invincible and slightly more realistic is an interesting one. Readers of the literature of the time (50s/60s novels) will recognise some of the more famous storylines' tropes present here so it captures the zeitgeist more effectively. I found it an interesting read with some great art, very enjoyable.

Format: Hardcover
In this wonderful four-issue noir-style series set in the early days of the Cold War, ex-soldier Wade Wilson is tasked to find a rogue agent who stole a briefcase with a nuke inside of it. However, the powers that be have reservations about sending Wade, the crazy psychotic gun-for-hire to find someone who is hell-bent on destroying all of Manhattan. Wade must travel the world, and the world of his own multiple personalities, in order to catch the agent, the Outlaw, before she blows the city sky-high. This is a job only the Deadpool can accomplish.

So, we have espionage, betrayal, and enough twists to make your head spin. All within a noir-like, dark setting. It's done very, very well and would have fit right into the Noir series Marvel had going there for a while. However, be it that it may, this is a good book with some really nice, eye-catching art and some great dialogue that fits with the feel of the time but also plays on the classic Deadpool silliness with fantastic lines like "I knew I didn't like this fat ****! Let's kill him and stick an apple in his mouth." Deadpool's past becomes an interesting story in itself and the notion of him being hard to kill is definitely within this story. Cable also plays a pretty big role in this as well! If you liked the Noir series at all, this is definitely one to pick up even though it doesn't share the title. It's a good thing too, considering this would have been one of the best Noir titles they would have released.

One of my favorite Deadpool mini-series that I ever purchased. It's got the good Deadpool humor all the fans like. The story is great, especially if you like spy/World War II story lines. They female antagonist is pretty good looking and a very interesting character. I'd say if you're really into the Deadpool mini series, this one is a must have. The ending is a nice clean finish too, doesn't leave you confused or on a cliffhanger. A solid story from beginning to end.

After playing the video game Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, I got very interested in the Marvel Noir series. The Spider-Man stories are masterpieces. This Deadpool book, not so much. The artwork and kitsch factor are nice and unique but the story is dull and really turns a unique and crazy character into a more generic and two dimensional throw away guy that you just can't really get into. I'd only get it if you're looking to complete a collection of the Noir books.
