I'm sorry, but we've reached the maximum allowed number of British teens allowed at this time, please try again later.

Silly me, I almost forgot. Dum Dum fell off the members list last week, your re-entry into the group will be approved upon receipt of one Deadpool Team-Up #899 review.

I never actually reviewed TT, just scored it.

That is when I went through my latest weirdo depressed thingie. I sort of stopped writing altogether and then I went on my trip and instead of feeling refreshed when I came back, I felt like my life was spinning out of control. I am back to just dealing with it now.

I had also just read a whole bunch of awesome on the trip and was dreading getting back to less than awesome for the group and weekly.

Deadpool #899

As much as I bitch about the saturation of the market with Deadpool, I actually like the character. Most of my complaints have to do with the harm it does the industry (big picture) and the problems it will present the property (little picture).

The world and I need another Deadpool title like we need another hole in our head. However, this one is better than Merc With a Mouth and makes me want to catch up on the core book which I fell woefully behind on as the titles he appeared in seemingly multiplied geometrically overnight.

There were bits of this comic that I didn't like. There are some dialogue problems through out the book. Some of it is probably supposed to be Wade being crazy, but it also happens with Herc. Does anyone else feel that FVL doesn't spend as much time on his Marvel books as he does on others? I mean Comic Book Comics is pitch perfect, this one is a little well, convoluted is par for the course with a Deadpool comic, but inconsistency will always bug me and there are hiccups here and there with this one.

There are also problems with Wade's inner narration. I never got the sense that the two different colored boxes were both separate voices from his spoken words before, but that may be Way writing the character wrong for all I know. After I figured it out, I enjoyed the idea and its manifestation in the awakening split of Wade's mind is interesting.

The idea is fun. The incredibly anachronistic demi-god and the schizophrenic fourth wall aware mercenary versus Arcade and Nightmare. (Admittedly I am not as familiar with the villains as I probably should be).

I also like the art. I think the colorist should be shot in the head because the lines and the color do not mesh. It is sort of poor man's Perkins. It is consistent and conveys the script well. Stylistically it is a little off, Herc should only look like he is in Captain America or Daredevil if he is in those books.

It's not a perfect book by any means, but for those who want a fun comic, this gets the job done.

Story 6
Art 5
Overall 6.5

[spoiler]The book gets a bonus point for having the main character give himself a labotomy.[/spoiler]

Deadpool #899.

I've let my disliking for the character be known by now, and this issue does nothing to change my opinion.

It worked well for what it is, I normally don't like these stand alone stories, but I understand why this needs to be one. Hercules is a pretty fun character, and I like Arcade.

Unfortunately, Arcade is not used as well as I like here, and I don't think Nightmare would work with him. Deadpool continually makes jokes I don't like, and the plot is wrapped up a little to quick. Cute last page though.

Art is serviceable, nothing special.

4/10

so no one else has read it yet or wants to argue with Punchy and Mini-me Punchy?

Deadpool Team-Up #899

Not even bothering with credits for this issue. When there's a comic I like, I'll go whole hog on the review. Did you see the size of my Ares review? This was not a comic I liked.
FVL does what he can but I'm just not feeling it. No-one has got me to like Deadpool since Joe Kelly and I don't think anyone else will. I liked the bit about Deadpool fighting his inner monologue, it gets an extra point for that.
Bad art, dirty, messy, bad art.

Story - 4
Art - 3
Overall - 3, and I'm being generous.
