Deadpool + Hercules sounds like a fun combo but 3 Deadpool ongoings? Damn, is he that popular?

Deadpool Team Up #899
So this was just bad.
end of review.

No?


Fine.

I like Deadpool fine, Hercules is becoming one of my favorite characters so this should have been a no brainer but it was a chore to read and the art was kinda eh. The cover had me thinking this was gonna be Herc and Deadpool getting drunk, banging broads, and kicking ass but no I was mistaken. Van Lente who is a co-writer on one of the best Marvel books (Incredible Hercules) tries to tie this into the God Squad story with Nightmare but it just didn't work for me. He had Hercs voice fine but I think he went overboard Deadpool's voices in his head, it was just confusing and most of the jokes fell flat. I did like how Deadpool broke his sword on Herc's chest hair and the last page made me chuckle but after that this was truly forgettable. The art side of things was ehhh aight? I didn't really care for Dalibor Talajic's Hercules... he looked like a buff Jesus to me, everything else wasn't bad but didn't fly off the pages either, I will not be reading any more of this series after this one.

STORY - 3

ART - 5

OVERALL - 4.5

So...Deadpool's costume has a healing factor too? :?

Also, his hand is on backwards when he stabs himself in the head. :?

I only pre-ordered this issue because of Van Lente, but my expectations aren't very high. I'll be posting my review within the next two days.
