    So this wasn t bad, but it was missing that something that makes for a great DP comic Kinda like Deadpool wasn t Deadpool y enough, if that makes sense He s rich, beloved my the unwashed masses, and unbelievably also an Avenger.What The Actual Fuck.To me, that sort of ruined it Part of Deadpool s shtick is that he wants to be an Avenger, or he mistakenly thinks he s an Avengerbut he s never an Avenger Imho, it s a special kind of blasphemy that he s on the team Ok, beyond that, it s So this wasn t bad, but it was missing that something that makes for a great DP comic Kinda like Deadpool wasn t Deadpool y enough, if that makes sense He s rich, beloved my the unwashed masses, and unbelievably also an Avenger.What The Actual Fuck.To me, that sort of ruined it Part of Deadpool s shtick is that he wants to be an Avenger, or he mistakenly thinks he s an Avengerbut he s never an Avenger Imho, it s a special kind of blasphemy that he s on the team Ok, beyond that, it s almost like Wade is semi lucid I mean, yeah, he s still nutty, but not the normal DP level of nutty He s doing nice stuff, being somewhat helpful, and in general trying to do the right thing.Nooooo Justgross.But this wasn t some sort of train wreck to read, either Even if I m not a huge fan of this new and improved Deadpool, I can t complain that the storyline was incoherent.Wilson has formed a team of C list also rans, and is calling them the Heroes For Hire Luke Cage is thrilled But someone is trying to undo all of Wade s good deeds, and expose a painful forgotten memory from his past Honestly, it s not hard to figure out whodunnit, so don t expect much of a mystery It helps if you ve read the Deadpool Annual with the Madcap storyThen again, this is a DP comic, so you re probably not picking it up for the intricate plot details This is funny and charming in different way than usual, so if you ve been looking for a kinder, gentler,PG 13 Mr Pool, check this one out

    Two and one half stars rounded as far as it can go.At what point did reading superhero comics take a back seat to watching a superhero movie or TV show I couldn t tell you it seems to have been something that s snuck up on me The creative comic book powers have been tapped to send the flow of good times energy current from the printed word to the cinematic world I get it the films generate tens of millions in profit Collectively the book sales don t come close It s a business decision and Two and one half stars rounded as far as it can go.At what point did reading superhero comics take a back seat to watching a superhero movie or TV show I couldn t tell you it seems to have been something that s snuck up on me The creative comic book powers have been tapped to send the flow of good times energy current from the printed word to the cinematic world I get it the films generate tens of millions in profit Collectively the book sales don t come close It s a business decision and businesses are around to make money The tail is now wagging the dog It seems the movies borrow every decent idea from the comics and dress it up like a cheap and shiny five dollar hooker dwells too long on that image Comic books have been an important part of life since I was four Growing up the only super hero moving pictures available were crappily animated cartoons Back then, I d have sold my pet cat, Freddie, for a chance to see my comic book heroes cavort on the big screen for reals And forget about the merchandise available then I had to use a trash can lid if I wanted to play Captain America or my sister s jump rope if I wanted to replicate Daredevil s billy club cord thingy Action figures feh Crayon some Spidery stuff on a naked GI Joe and viola you have Spider Man Webs That doily that it took Mom a three weeks to sew or crochet or whatever Why is it green and charred, Ma I was using my chemistry set to do experiments on Spidey GI Joe Post Secret Wars I can name a handful of Marvel books that I actually looked forward to reading and, of those, two have been cancelled Reading most super hero comic books lately reminds me of watching SpongeBob with my kid It was rollicking good times for a while until Spongebob and Patrick just decided to just show up and draw a paycheck SpongeBob had that new, creepy, higher pitched voice and Patrick s dumb jokes just gotsimpleminded And what the hell s with Mr Krabs having a whale daughter A spark is missing, comic books serve some sort of higher end instead of just being an amusing diversion I understand that things like art forms, change, grow, evolve, but does that mean the capacity to engage, entertain and have fun has to be discarded Comic books have always had a bottom line, but that bottom line, like a Limbo poll has been lowered to a painful, back breaking height.Okay, Stan Lee First, no one asked you to make a cameo in my review Second, sigh I ll never stop reading Marvel comics Never.Dear God Okay, Bats I ll never stop reading DC comics published before the New 52 Review the freaking book already On it, imaginary Goodreader.The Deadpool books are emblematic of the new Marvel comix line Give the reader just enough to reel him or her in nothing special, but nothing you can thumb your nose at either Reading most of Marvel s output feels like product , reading them feels like settling characters and stories are the comic book equivalent of baseball s minor leagues if you can throw a curve ball come up with something semi memorable , we ll see you in the big time silver screen, kid imaginary Goodreader cocks pistol What s happening in this book The plot of a Deadpool book is usually secondary to how many off kilter jokes a writer can deliver Well, not any Deadpool is multitasking He s now a member of the Avengers and he also runs his own mercenary group, all of whom dress up as Deadpool, because you can never have enough Deadpools Am I right The mercs for hire are a collection of also rans who manage to squeeze Deadpool, and as a consequence, most of the funny, out of this book Meta humor and you get lots of that now when you read Deadpool is an additive, a sort of bonus, like MSG, that gets written into these books, because Marvel wants to appear hip and trendy.Stan Lee isn t writing this one I imagine the cologne smells like Tigra slept in the dumpster behind the local Waffle House so the story doesn t follow the conventional straight and narrow It s another let s throw plot lines at the wall and see what the kid s will dig volume.Excelsior Bottom Line Duggan s written some good Deadpool in the past Deadpool Dracula s Gauntlet , but at this point it doesn t matter who writes these books, they just have to connect the dots for Marvel This volume did just enough a smile here, a gee, that s sort of clever there, a sort of fun Deadpool ism skulking in the corner.I need a nap, but first, another long digression

    The post Secret Wars Deadpool is a busy man Mirroring his popularity in our universe, he has become a mega star He s on billboards, is making a mint selling Deadpool merchandise and has even become an Avenger I know I guess Steve Rogers is big on second chances On top of all this, he s decided to start up his own team of Heroes For Hire Danny and Luke are not going to be happy about the name His HFH team consist of some pretty obscure Marvel characters Foolkiller, Madcap, Slapstick, The post Secret Wars Deadpool is a busy man Mirroring his popularity in our universe, he has become a mega star He s on billboards, is making a mint selling Deadpool merchandise and has even become an Avenger I know I guess Steve Rogers is big on second chances On top of all this, he s decided to start up his own team of Heroes For Hire Danny and Luke are not going to be happy about the name His HFH team consist of some pretty obscure Marvel characters Foolkiller, Madcap, Slapstick, Solo, Stingray and Terror some of whom have worked almost exclusively on the wrong side of the law I know I guess Wade Wilson is big on second chances Wade has also made them all dress in duplicates of his Deadpool costume.Everything s hunky dory until somebody dressed in a Deadpool outfit starts murderising peopleI was unsure on the new status quo for the first couple of issues but, by the time I reached issue three, I was sold and really, really enjoying it I m looking forward to seeing where this creative team takes this book next

    Ever since Deadpool was made an Avenger do they turn away anyone his real world popularity has translated to the Marvel U s as well and he s been making a buck on his image selling all kindsa crap with his face on he s become the Merch with a Mouth He s so in demand he s even hired a group of Marvel s least loved characters to put on his outfit and pretend to be him on merc missions and public appearances Deadpool s Heroes for Hire And then Deadpool starts murdering government officia Ever since Deadpool was made an Avenger do they turn away anyone his real world popularity has translated to the Marvel U s as well and he s been making a buck on his image selling all kindsa crap with his face on he s become the Merch with a Mouth He s so in demand he s even hired a group of Marvel s least loved characters to put on his outfit and pretend to be him on merc missions and public appearances Deadpool s Heroes for Hire And then Deadpool starts murdering government officials What s bad about that Deadpool s doing it for free This wannabe s crossed the line Longtime Deadpool writer Gerry Duggan and artist Mike Hawthorne try out a new situation for everyone s favourite regeneratin degenerate by making him rich and famous and it s just sorta ok Out of Deadpool s Heroes for Hire, I only recognised a couple characters Madcap and Foolkiller he kills fools With a walking stick For realsies but they re meant to be super obscure picks Completing the lineup is Solo, Terror, Slapstick, and Stingray I can t believe no one remembered these cats with names like that Unfortunately they re mostly as uninteresting as they ve always been and pootle around while Wade figures out which one of them done the murders I did laugh though when they showed Luke Cage s face after he saw Deadpool s ad for his own Heroes for Hire Hawthorne s art is pretty good with some very swish action scenes scattered throughout the story but there wasn t anything that amazing or original here Same with Duggan s story which just wasn t that exciting or engaging The reveal is a callback to earlier in the Duggan Posehn run and is kinda meh, and a lot of the cliffhangers are red herrings I thought Deadpool would get up to some nuttier shenanigans with his cash but he doesn t do anything you haven t seen him do before Millionaire with a Mouth is a decent Deadpool book but nothing special and is ultimately pretty forgettable Looking forward to the next one though Deadpool 2099

    I love deadpool he was like my gateway drug into comics, now i m on that harder stuff with my pull lists man, i need a fix man So it s all his fault that you re subjected to these shitty reviews, blame him, something about that shiny ass red suit and my total lack of concentration made this a good match Deadpool gets a fresh start with this new volume after the secret wars which i didn t read because really marvel so i had no idea why there was so many deadpools or the belief thatdead I love deadpool he was like my gateway drug into comics, now i m on that harder stuff with my pull lists man, i need a fix man So it s all his fault that you re subjected to these shitty reviews, blame him, something about that shiny ass red suit and my total lack of concentration made this a good match Deadpool gets a fresh start with this new volume after the secret wars which i didn t read because really marvel so i had no idea why there was so many deadpools or the belief thatdeadpools make it better, cause it doesn t I thought we d get something new after the last run of deadpool volumes which has seen the quality drop the plots are all over the place and the humour of deadpool is kinda stale and i miss that deadpool, come back wade And yes i know deadpool isthan just a few funny quips here and there, but this volume lacks any sort of humour, we re still stuck with deadpool s wife and daughter like i still don t care i m sorry i know some people love them or feel it addsemotion to wade but i just think its another shitty plot device that is going nowhere I m giving it three, not because it s a good volume because it s really forgettable, looking over the issues now i totally forgot half of it, deadpool has set up a business you can hire a deadpool but then madcap starts killing people and yeah is that it I think that s it But because it s deadpool and i just love the guy i can t give this just two stars, but i just want something fresh for deadpool Marvel should beon the ball with this since the deadpool movie which was pretty average is gonna bring new fans to the comics and they re not gonna know what the shit is going on and if you are new to deadpool go back, go waaaaaay back and pick up those deadpool volumes, see deadpool dressed as a pirate pick that shit up, is he with a monkey yup pick that up too Maybe this plot is building somewhere, probably not, will volume two be any better i hope so If you re new to deadpool there s way better volumes out there and you may feel your time and money wasted here, those who feel stuck with deadpool like a loveless marriage we re just gonna have to struggle on, sort it out

    Boo.Duggan, what have you done to Deadpool Maybe it s because I ve been reading Way s run, but this SUCKED The story was all over the place, kinda hard to follow andor less interesting.So, Deadpool is now the most famous man in the world He even has a company called Deadpool s Heroes For Hire He has a team of some of the most insignificant characters in the MarvelverseAnd even has his own stores, where he sells exclusive Deadpool merchandise Sounds great, right WRONG.This was just Boo.Duggan, what have you done to Deadpool Maybe it s because I ve been reading Way s run, but this SUCKED The story was all over the place, kinda hard to follow andor less interesting.So, Deadpool is now the most famous man in the world He even has a company called Deadpool s Heroes For Hire He has a team of some of the most insignificant characters in the MarvelverseAnd even has his own stores, where he sells exclusive Deadpool merchandise Sounds great, right WRONG.This was just plain bad It lacked the Deadpool charm, a proper story, and good storytelling.Just a waste of time

    I m giving this volume 3 stars out of generosity and because I liked the art The story itself was very messy and confusing.

    As my first Deadpool, I liked this so muchthan I expected to I don t have any experience with Duggan writing anything else, but he sure can write the hell out of Deadpool This was funny I think I expected a tired slapstick in which my laughs would be obligatory it wasn t like that at all There were many times I found myself laughing out loud I expected Deadpool to be obnoxious and tiring and he is anything but.
