HOJ, Chip says that they are thinking about an omni, but it depends on sales. In other words, if we want to see an omnibus, we better bust our hump making sure the other versions sell.

It was an okay comic. It's hard to penalize Van Lente for writing an annoying as fuck Deadpool when in fact the character is annoying as fuck so it was perfectly in character.

Yeah, "new guy", that's Punchy shtick.

But seriously, what good is a review thread if not to start arguments?

Deadpool Team-Up #899

Unlike seemingly everyone else here, I have no real opinion on Deadpool. I am not a fan, although I have found the character to be amusing on the few occasions when I have read his books. Thus, I came into this review with far fewer preconceived notions than most others reading this book.

I liked it. The story was light, but still a lot of fun. I thought Deadpool's "multi-voice" was a fun gimmick, and it brought a few laughs. Hercules was used to good effect, and Deadpool's solution to the quandry facing him at the end of the book was pretty clever. Sure, it's not the greatest book ever written, but it met my expectations. Fred Van Lente turned in a solid effort.

As for the art, it was serviceable, but not great. Honestly, I really do not have any more to say than that.

Story: 7.5
Art: 7
Overall: 7.5

Haven't gotten to the shop yet this last week. I'm getting the book, but don't think I'll make it in time for the front page posting. :(

I usually (I say usually because I am occasionally stricken with bouts of extreme laziness) go back and edit in any late reviews so it will still end up there for later generations to bask in the full glory of the Review Group.

We have reviewed four Deadpool books? I remember the issue before with Deadpool tripping from the regular ongoing, what were the other two? :shock:

and seriously, like what book or character have we reviewed the most.

Four for Deadpool seems really out of proportion.
