Comic Book Review: Deadpool #1 - Marvel Comics (2016)

Written by Gerry Duggan

Will the real Deadpool please stand up?  Deadpool can't be everywhere at once but a hot commodity like himself needs to be to keep the brand alive so some obscure yet familiar faces in the Marvel universe dress as the Merc' with a Mouth.

This was a fun first issue to get this story going.  Who is the real Deadpool and what are his motives?  Being a Marvel fan, I like seeing these lesser known characters dressing up as Deadpool.

If you're a fan of Deadpool, grab this book.  If you are still trying to figure out who Deadpool is, then seeing #1 on the comic book can be a bit deceiving.  This doesn't start anything over so if that's what you're looking for, well that's just what Marvel does.  Seeing issue #1 only signifies a new story line.  It does not catch you up on what has been happening.  For this reason, I will tell anyone that you should read what you think may be interesting regardless of issue number.  Pick up a series and go from there.  If you want to catch up, Marvel has the Unlimited app which collects much of their works for a low monthly cost.  DC and other companies will still require you to buy graphic novels or back issues from your local comic shop or digital download.

Okay, now that I'm done with that rant, we can talk about the cover.  This came from the Marvel Collector Corps subscription box.  I typed up a review of the entire box of exclusive items and you can read that here.  I really like the Funko POP! look to this cover with Deadpool atop a mound of chimichangas and tacos.
