Deadpool 1 cover

Deadpool is back in the Marvel Comics Release – Read on for my buying opinions:

The Merc with a Mouth is back and ready to kick butt in his brand new on-going series! Join the Crimson Nutcase, DEADPOOL, for action and wisecracks in Deadpool #1! As the Skrulls continue their attack on Earth, the world is being torn upside down and only one person can save us in this new ongoing series, spinning out of Secret Invasion! He’s Deadpool and he’s crazier and deadlier than ever before! Don’t miss the explosive debut of this new series by writer Daniel Way (Wolverine Origins, Ghost Rider, Bullseye: Greatest Hits) and fan-favorite artist Paco Medina (New Warriors, New X-Men)! Plus, an eye popping, variant cover, featuring artwork from the legendary Rob Liefeld!

After Daniel Way’s Deadpool arc in Wolverine: Origins, the fans and critics agree that he was born to write this series!

“Deadpool’s characterization is really fascinating. Daniel Way explores our favorite Merc-with-a-Mouth’s delusions of grandeur and self-image… This is wonderful character exploration.” – Steven M. Bari of

“I generally like what Daniel Way is doing with this book….It’s good stuff, and it makes me crave the ongoing Deadpool book all the more.” – Jesse Schedeen of

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Secret Invasion and all tie-in issues, as they continue to sell out quickly at Diamond!

Deadpool gets swept up the chaos of Secret Invasion! Will he step up to the plate and save the human race? His madness is his method and you’re not going to want to miss it in Deadpool #1!

What Does This Mean to You?

Marvel keeps bringing this character back. I don’t recommend this particular book for any increased value in the future, but it could spark some interest in back issues. Deadpool has also appeared on many future movie lists, so who knows what’s in store for him. Right now the back issues are reasonably priced so it could be worth some speculative buying. You have to make your own decision based on your tolerance. The issue I would be looking at is Deadpool’s first appearance in New Mutants 98, focusing on high grade copies of course. Add it to your watchlist.

  5. It’s a relief to find someone who can explain things so well

  6. 17 avril 2012Bravo, je trouve cette nouvelle très cinématographique, on se voit à l’aube du 20ème siècle sur les poutres en acier au milieu des immigrés qui construisent l’empire state building.Elle est originale, touchante et avec un style propre.Peux-être que la fin aurait pu passer sans dialogue mais juste un geste, à voir ?En tout cas, vivement la prochaine en attendant je me jette sur les deux précédentes.

  8. Slam dunkin like Shaquille O’Neal, if he wrote informative articles.

  9. Hey, killer job on that one you guys!

  10. That kind of thinking shows you’re on top of your game

  11. I don’t think you know “exactly” how I am based on my simple post. And yes I read your past posts about this guy. While he did sound like an ass, it is your side of the story. I don’t know his to make judgments on him nor do I care. Based on your previous posts and the tone of your reply, you sound like you are flirting with me . I like that you act like a hard ass because you are afraid of being hurt. Anyway I enjoy reading your posts.VA:F [1.9.20_1166]
