I tried to let my hatred for Deadpool not cloud my judgement of this book. I could have easily given it a 2 or 1. I tried to ignore my preconceptions of the character, and if this was my first time exposed to him, I wouldn't mind him as much.

In doing so it has clouded your judgement.

It sounds as if to me, you think the book deserves a 2 or a 1 but gave it a four instead.

Eh, this wasn't that bad actually, I like Arcade, and it was fun seeing Nightmare show up to follow on from God Squad, and there were some very clever ideas here, as usual from FVL.

Deadpool himself wasn't too annoying, and I liked how FVL managed to make fun of the ridiculous ubiquity and general stupidity of the character, while not outright insulting the reader. The way they worked in the multiple voiceovers was very clever. But still... a lot of the jokes were terrible, and the idea of the book itself offends me... Review to come later.

IN other words, give the book the score you think it deserves. (But be ready to back it up)

A four.

I like Arcade, I liked the art enough. I thought the story was ok, accesible and not to over the top. I dislike it because I dislike the jokes (especially the *insert fourthwall breaking here*) and nothing really happened.

See how much easier that is for me to accept than "I scored it higher because I hate Deadpool" was?

I will keep it in for a week, arrange some kind of deal with you that you'll read the first three issues when you take it out, and then you'll say it, it'll go back in my quote, and then me and you are Internet BFFS?

That's the best solution. Now if we could just get somebody to team up with Punchy.

Did nobody notice me saying I didn't hate it?

Man, it sucks not being controversial.
