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.
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.Read more ›
This Collection includes a fascinating encounter with the Incredible Hulk and the introduction of Deadpool is the one on the side, typhoid Mary. Deadpool is just the perfect character to follow. Where have you been all my life, Deadpool?
This trade paperback contains issues #2-8 as well as Deadpool/Daredevil 1997 Annual and the #-1 issue placed between issues 5 and 6. The stories here are well done and seeing Tasky in a newly-colored costume was nice even if it was only for one issue. The issues all line up pretty well and make one big story although T-Ray threatens to kill Deadpool on several occasions and never really does anything (except light Wade's head on fire.) The Typhoid Mary arc that crossed with the annual issue was really well done and showed a "heroic" side to Deadpool in his quest to save someone he saw as savable. Of course Weasel and Blind Al appear frequently and, through almost every issue, we get to hear classic lines like "Uh-oh! Sentimental scene alert! Launch a preemptive wedgie!" and "Hairy Zeus on a Traffic Light!Read more ›
