6/10 overall is what I should've gone with.

I still get the feeling people are hating simply because its Deadpool though.

I have nothing against Deadpool. He's got a good gimmicky personality and a good costume design. I think, though, he is a very hard character to write, because he needs really sharp, funny dialogue.

I'm going to be brutally honest here, and a part of me hates doing this since I always tend to feel guilty afterwords... but... THIS SUCKED! Even as someone who isn't much of a fan of this character, this issue was even worse than the zomibe crap they were doing for a while. Talk about a forced story, forced dialogue, even the art felt forced, rushed, and boring.

This is probably in my top five least favorite books we've ever read. It's just lucky that I still have that horrible taste of Grant Morisson's Batman "prose" in my mouth.

Story: .5
Art:1
My Score: 1.5

not having read the book yet or your review, did Pearson not illustrate this issue? I find a 1 hard to believe.

also thanks for the well wishes.

I just got back from the rehab center. Glad to report she looks like my mom again. the rehab center looks like a cheap motel with random people in wheel chairs hanging out, but does not smell like old people, a hospital or urine, so I guess it could be worse and our friend at Duke says it is a quality place. So we will see.

also at Starlord. I think your score helped me with making a score in the future. Grade the art and writing on a five point scale and add together. It won't give me a weird .25 or anything, but it should make for more interesting and probably realistic scores (often times I have to raise or lower one of the others to give the book the score I feel it deserves)
I think I will try it out for a while.

I believe a new artist is coming aboard with #7. With that said this may be the best Rob's art has ever been.

I know we're supposed to review books no matter what they are unless there's an issue, but I couldn't justify $3.99 for a second issue in a miniseries about a character I'm tired of. I'm sorry.

But I'll never get tired of Batman :wink:

What else has Pearson done? Ver few artists do I really follow. And rarely is there an artist that I haven't disliked in at least one book. Except George Perez. George can never make a mistake.

Deadpool: Wade Wilson's War #2 (of 4)
This being the second issue of a book where I didn't read the first, about character I am pretty indifferent with was good way to have me start off not liking this. I won't lie, I did get a few laughs in but I never really came around on this one. The art was kinda blah and I just don't see the appeal of another Deadpool mini that is sort of an origin that is also out of continuity... I guess it was written in a somewhat clever way and the Michael Jackson mask was kinda funny but I was just not that into this one, sorry :smt102

STORY - 5

ART - 5

OVERALL - 5
