I’m a big Deadpool fan, but I almost didn’t buy this issue. See, I read the first Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe series and honestly thought it was kind of meh. It just felt pretty pointless to me. But there was something I couldn’t resist. Maybe I just have a weakness for #1’s. Maybe it’s that great cover art. Maybe it’s the fact that Bunn’s been on a roll with X-Men: Blue lately. So I grabbed this.
And I’m actually glad I did. It was lots of fun, and at least the story of WHY he’s killing (again) is a lot more interesting than in the first series.
I loved the artwork here. Specifically that when Deadpool would go on a killing spree you’d see things through his eyes and the art style would change drastically. When he was killing the Uncanny Avengers it got all kids-comic looking. When he took out Thor, Loki, Hercules and their crew it looked like an older comic and referenced those old Marvel swimsuit issues. It’s actually quite fun.
So yeah, maybe I’ll stick with this mini-series after all. I’m always glad to read some good Deadpool comics.
