The Merc with a Mouth is back! After the end of Deadpool and Cable, both characters got there own solo series. This oversized, deluxe hardcover collects the first 3 arcs in Deadpool's ongoing series; Secret Invasion, Dark Reign, and Deadpool/Thunderbolts. The last arc is a four issue crossover with the Deadpool and Thunderbolts titles.
Deadpool is an incredibly fun series to read. It has the perfect blend of action, humor, story, and action. (Yes, I did that on purpose) Deadpool is a mutant mercenary for hire, who find himself hired by Nick Fury to steal classified Skrull information. Norman Osbourne attempts to hire Deadpool also, which leads to the astonishingly good third arc. The art is detailed and Deadpool's body language conveys more of what he's thinking than his words do sometimes, which is rare thing to see in a comic. There is a lot of content here; 14 issues, variant covers, sketches, and more.
I would recommend this to anybody, whether they be new to comics or long time fans. You will definitely enjoy this book.

Decided to dive headfirst into Deadpool after hearing so much about this unique character.
This is a Great book... in fact i bought all the volumes and have enjoyed every one of them.

However, Amazon reports that this book is usually bought with 'Deadpool, Vol. 2: Dark Reign'....

Do not buy 'Deadpool, Vol. 2: Dark Reign' with this version of 'Deadpool volume 1' , as it's already included as part of the story-line.
Why they would not in some way differentiate between the two versions of volume 1, I don't understand.
I'm also shocked that I'm the first to write anything about this, if others have been buying these recommended volumes together.

In conclusion:
Great book, great series, I recommend it.

Just don't buy 'Deadpool, Vol. 2: Dark Reign', with this version of Deadpool Volume 1.

I'll start this out by saying I had no love for Way's Ghost Rider run at all. I thought it was pretty darn bad really.

Getting that out of the way, this is a great start to a new Deadpool series. I think Way has a good understanding of what Deadpool fans want and delivers. Its funny, full of action, and has a good flow to it.

The art is also decent. It has the standard Marvel feel to it, but the it mixes well with the story telling.

Overall, I believe this volume to be a good start for this series and suggest it for anyone who likes the merc with a mouth to pick it up.

Format: Paperback
Meet Deadpool, AKA Wade Wilson. He's a disfigured and extremely mentally unstable mercenary who really loves money and general insanity. Don't let that disturb you; he's excellent at his job with proficiency in martial arts, markmanship, and swordsmanship.The first story arc in the graphic novel features the Skrulls, alien shapeshifters bent on taking over the Earth. Deadpool convinces the Skrulls that he is on their side after an impressive fight (won by Deadpool of course) and they decide to clone tons of him. Has Deadpool bitten off more than he can chew with the army of Skrull-Deadpools? Can he stop them before they take over the world or will he just get so caught up in his insanity that he won't care? The second story arc starts with a man hiring Deadpool to rescue his wife who was turned into a zombie by a plastic surgeon. Will he emerge from the job unscathed and with money in hand? Is a normal chair more or less awesome or comfortable than a chair made of plastic explosives?

Deadpool has just become my favorite Marvel character. I've never read any Deadpool comics before this one, but I was vaguely familiar with the character. (I also knew he was viciously butchered in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine.) His insanity and spontaneity make his stories memorable, engaging, and extremely funny. He constantly speaks to himself in his head (in about 3 different voices), breaks out into random song, and breaks the fourth wall. He laughs in the face of danger and never plans for anything. The people around him are always trying to figure out what his plans are, but he doesn't even know what his plans are. He switches sides and betrays enemies often. It's so funny how things come out in the end to his advantage through accident and coincidence.

Deadpool is quickly becoming my favorite Marvel series. His witty quips give Spider-man a run for his money and his terminal dementia is comedic gold. In "Deadpool Volume 1" we join Deadpool as he takes on the Skrull invasion fulfilling a secret mission for Nick Furry. Hilarity insures as Deadpool convinces the Skrulls that he wants to join their ranks and allows them to copy his genetic code. Vast armies of Skrull/Deadpool clones abound and really, what's better than one Deadpool? thousands! A thoroughly enjoyable story line that isn't just slapstick and wisecracks. You get some clues to what Herry Osborn's angle is after the war and why he's on Deadpool's hit list. I look forward to reading Deadpool to see where his creative team will take him, but after reading Volume 1 I'm sure it's going to be one helluva joyride!

Format: Hardcover
Since I couldn't find this anywhere in the product description for some reason: This book collects Deadpool issues #1-12 and Thunderbolts #130-131. So, as another reviewer stated, do not buy "Dark Reign" if you buy this book (the issues of Dark Reign are in this volume) but purchase Deadpool, Vol. 3: X Marks the Spot which collects Deadpool #13-17 or wait around for someone at Marvel to realize that they released one large book labeled "vol 1" and forgot to do a large vol 2 collection? Who knows...

Having said that, this is a great book. Very well written and illustrated. The coloring style drastically changes at one point, but both are quite fun to look at. If you used to like Deadpool and at some point got completely sick of the over saturation of this character (I mean, Deadpool has one book where a bunch of version of him run around together including a kid version, dog version, lady version, zombie head...) then this is a good book. It is well written, not gimmicky at all and in no way feels like a Marvel money grab.
