He did Great and Secret Show (which is possibly prettier) and a few other things here and there.

I popped in my LCS today on the way home to pick up Locke and Key v2, figuring I could read it on my train journey tomorrow. Unfortunately, by the time I got there, I forgot why I was there, and I bought Demo instead.

Pass for me this week.

Deadpool Team-Up #899

I don't like Deadpool so naturally this wasn't something I was looking forward to, but surprisingly it wasn't really all that bad. I like Hercules so that softened the blow a bit and as far as this being a Team-Up issue goes it succeeded in capturing the feel of one of those old Marvel Team-Up comics. Sure it was a bit goofy, but what comic with Arcade isn't?

Deadpool still comes off as more annoying than funny and the breaking the fourth wall bits acknowledging that it's not funny doesn't actually make unfunny jokes funny. In that respect Van Lente seems to have a perfect feel for the character so while it might not be entertaining to me it is a well executed comic on his part.

The art was pretty average. Herc looked a bit fug, but it wasn't a distraction.

Story: 7
Art: 6
Overall: 6.5

Scarface was a stupid movie, and anything that references it is stupid by association.

This is my first, and likely last, Deadpool comic.

The only thing I found funny is this comic was the reference to Steve Reeves. Reeves is dead. He was an actor who hadn't made a movie in the last 40 years, and hadn't made a movie with an English title in 45 years. I'd wager that 2/3 of the readers of this comic would not get the reference.

I seldom look at other reviews before writing my own, but I did notice comments here that said the drawings of Hercules didn't look right. That may be true, but the drawings are consistent with the art in the rest of the book. The drawings of Hercules, Deadpool and other characters are of equal quality. It's just that the ink lines around a costume tend to hide line work.

A friend of mine absolutely loved Deadpool. He used to buy it, then sit down at the LCS and read it before he went home. He would often howl with laughter. I don't. Maybe I'm just one of those clueless people who don't get it. Maybe I am one of those clueless people who just don't get humor. Me? Not get humor? Probably. I never laugh at jokes. I never tell jokes. I'm incapable of making puns. I never mock my lessers, often to the delight of my peers. Not me.

So this is pretty mediocre comics. I didn't love or hate the art. I didn't love or hate the story. It gets bonus points for using Arcade, one of my favorite lame villains. It also gets points for the sadomasochism, bondage, and spanking scenes. It loses points for the 'many voices in my head' meme. And it loses points for trying too hard to be witty, yet coming off as banal.

5

(Btw, my friend quit reading comics because of Civil War.)

If it's not, I'm sure someone could probably talk me down a bit. I can't believe I gave this a 6.5 :oops:
