Review: Deadpool Killustrated


Deadpool, in his Deadpool glory.

Spoiler Warnings

So Bunn continues on with his work of Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe.  Yes, this is a continuation.  New art team, same writer Bunn.  For those of you who read my review on Bunn’s last Deadpool run (that I so kindly just linked for everyone), well you’ll know I wasn’t a big fan of it.  The last couple issues did pick up, but generally I wasn’t pleased with it.  The case is completely different here, which is kind of odd.

Basically we get the same general set up Bunn used for “Kills” (as I’m not going to keep writing it out).  Yet some reason I find it works a lot better with the classics.  Few pages set up what is going on.  Where Deadpool is, as well as ties it into “Kills”.  More so it goes into why the classics is suddenly under attack.  Same goal, same evil voice in his head.  Granted, maybe my memory is a bit blurry but I do believe we get more interaction between Deadpool and the evil voice in his head which helped me.  So far as well, things have not felt as rushed as they did in “Kills”.

A few interesting things do happen.  A rather shocking appearance in one scene happens that could be hinting at the general destruction of things, or maybe something else.  More so the ending sets up a possible opponent for Deadpool, one who is one of my favorite literature characters.  And by “possible opponent” I mean one who I at least believe will stand up against Deadpool longer than a couple pages.

About xxadverbxx

I'm a fan of comics. I use to love DC, but events pretty much starting with the New 52 had pushed me off of them for years. Lately though titles like Gotham Academy and We Are Robin have brought me back to them. I'm much more still a Marvel fan though at this moment who I moved to since New 52 slowly kept pushing me away from DC. Often a fan of X-Men titles while I've really been loving Spider-Gwen series. Film wise I'm upset at DC though I really really want them to do good. At least their TV series are mostly enjoyable (though Arrow has dipped in quality), while I'm a huge fan of the Marvel films. Also, I still really hate Dan Didio and still view him as at least most of what has been going wrong with DC comic wise lately.
