I like Medina, and the Team-Up guy was ok.

Bong Dazo, besides a cool name, his art sucks to me

I've watched up to the end of season 3 and I can't pick it, but to be fair it is early in the morning here. :(

Deadpool Team-Up #899

I know Deadpool is either a character you love, or you hate. But with three on-ongoings, any love I had for the character is taking a toll. Daniel Way’s Deadpool is fun, witty and stupid, in short everything a good Deadpool book should be. Merc with a Mouth just bored me. This week’s review group book is Deadpool Team-Up #899 written by Fred Van Lente who honestly looks like he only got the gig because he writes incredible Hercules. All the Incredible Hercules plot points and dialogue felt spot on, where as anything deadpool just felt forced and over the top. It’s disappointing because I know how good Van Lente’s writing can be.

I felt like so many of the jokes felt flat, and as if he was trying too hard. I know this book was parental advisory, but for anyone out there with kids reading this would you really want them coming up to you and asking what “two girls one cup” is.
I will say one thing upon opening the first page of this book I wanted to put it straight down again, the artwork and the colouring left a lot to be desired. I think that’s another thing that at least makes me interested in a Deadpool book, nice, fluid almost cartoon-like art-work that suits the tone of the book.

The plot was rather light and felt recycled X-men plot, as Van Lente grabs at straws to have Herc and Deadpool team-up. With a rotating line-up of writers on this book I chose not to follow it monthly and am fully pleased with this decision. This was a fun comic but nowhere to the standards that I hold for Van Lente or a good Deadpool book.

Story – 5.5
Art – 3.5

Overall – 4.5

"Oh, look at me, I'm so fat and it's funny because fat always equals funny. Yo ho ho, where's the food, I'm hungry, but I'm always hungry all the time. Oooh, I think I just farted. Aren't farts funny? Especially when fat people fart!"

That's what I see whenever I read Volstagg dialogue.

Does Locke & Key have decent artwork?

It seems like I haven't been able to say anything good about the compositions and finished art on the books we've reviewed for over a month now.

I hope to review this later tonight or tomorrow. I've had some severe pain issues this week, and I didn't want to review because I might take it out on the book.

This would be the book to take it out on. Even Punchy thought it was lame.

As I've never watched the show, I'm guessing here.
