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.

I confess I really did not know much about Deadpool before previews for the Ryan Reynolds movie. That movie… That movie! That movie had me completely hooked on the character of Deadpool. I had to have more. I had heard that Ryan Reynolds was born to play that role, but far too often Hollywood changes everything about the beloved characters of novels, graphic or otherwise. I needed to know where Deadpool came from. To know if there was more of this character out there that I was missing. And was there ever!

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 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.

In the second installment of Joe Kelly's wonderful Deadpool run, the mouthy merc faces off against the expert fighter Taskmaster and loses a finger in the process! In an effort to get his regenerative properties back to full function, he has to take a blood sample from the incredible Hulk and that's not something that can be done easily! Wade also runs into a man from his dark past and only Siryn of the X-Force (and love interest of Deadpool) can stop him from mutilating the man responsible for making Wade the horrendous nightmare he is today! Deadpool also has a tangle with Vamp and then runs into Typhoid Mary and tries to help her mental state! Coinciding with the Deadpool/Daredevil '97 Annual, Deadpool brings Mary and Daredevil together to reconcile past incidents. However, Mary's maniacal ways prove to be too much for even Deadpool to handle and he must stop the monster he unleashed! Also, in the #-1 issue, Deadpool's origins and his first love interest are revealed!
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!
