    Pulling this for tony moore. Never read a deadpool book before and I’m trying a lot of marvel now books.

    • kingjoeg kingjoeg says:

      Also I wonder how long Tony Moore will stay for? He was only on The Walking Dead and Venom for about 6 issues each before leaving.

  2. walterwhite walterwhite says:

    This is my most anticipated book coming from MARVEL cash NOW. I haven’t read a Deadpool book since the 90′s, but with Brian Posehn/Duggan & Tony F’n Moore this should be EPIC,

  3. I never had any interest in Deadpool but this looks too good to miss

  4. tomistommy tomistommy says:

    Brian Posehn is a funny, funny man and Tony Moore is a god. Good enough reasons to give this a chance.

  5. Neeks Neeks says:

    I Want to like a Deadpool Book!! With this team im hoping to really enjoy this

  6. Yeah, I think this is going to be awesome!

  7. okc says:

    My love of Tony Moore trumps my hatred of Deadpool. I’ll try it.

  8. All of the interviews leading up to this really got me pumped to read this. Unfortunately Daniel Way’s run tapered off for me so I haven’t had any Deadpool fix in a long time. I hope this is really good but if anything the Geof Darrow covers are almost worth the price alone.

  9. keithfury keithfury says:

    I was thinking about picking this up for the Tony Moore art alone but after listening to the writers on Word Balloon I’m a lot more interested. It’s a $2.99 book so why not.

    Y’all should check out the variant cover http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs179/1101224909386/img/1044.jpg

  11. dpedal1 dpedal1 says:

    I have never read a Deadpool comic either, but after reading the preview and the fact that I want to try something new, I am going to give this a try.

  12. sitara119 sitara119 says:

    Deadpool has always been one of my favorite characters and his on-going that spun outa Secret Invasion started out strong, but with the Wolverine Origins movie and the 4 or 5 additional on-goings that started, i really got burned out on him. i mean, most of that stuff was really mishandled. terrible even. i’m ready for Deadpool to be cool again.

  13. Urthona Urthona says:

    Count me as another Deadpool virgin giving this a shot…for me it was the dead presidents, but glad to see Moore is another reason.

  14. DoctorDP DoctorDP says:

    I’m pretty sure this is the most pulls a Deadpool book has ever got.

  15. DoctorDP DoctorDP says:

    IGN gives this a 8.1- the vibe I get is that if you like UXF Deadpool, you’ll like this Deadpool.

  16. I’ve really enjoyed Deadpool in UXF and his cameo in Wolverine & the x-men last week. But I’ve never liked any other Deadpool titles, I’m hoping this is just what I’ve been waiting for.

  17. tripleneck tripleneck (@tripleneck) says:

    The art from Tony Moore is wonderful. The writing is pretty good, too. I recommend this if you like unlikely plots and DP’s snappy patter. Wait a minute, the villains have some good one liners, too. I’ve never bought one of Deadpool’s own comics before, so I consider this a successful Marvel Now launch since I will probably keep buying it as long as Tony Moore is drawing it.

  18. Alexferrer Alexferrer says:

    This was pretty ok!

    I’m reading Uncanny X-Force and there Deadpool has no healing factor… How did he get it back? Or is it just Deadpool shenanigans and I shouldn’t worry about that?

  19. DikBallistik DikBallistik says:

    As a Deadpool fan I want this more than anything else from Now! to be good…it’s been too long, Wade.

  20. tomistommy tomistommy says:

    This was pretty good overall. Good enough for me to pick up the second issue at least. Some jokes were super corny, but it’s Deadpool, so it’s expected. Passed out zombie Reagan with pinko written on his forehead is comedy gold though.

  21. Hilarious

  22. ButchCassidy ButchCassidy says:

    I think this is the first Deadpool comic I’ve ever read without Deapool’s inner monologue captions. It’s an interesting decision. It definitely make for a much faster paced read without them.

  23. I am kind of surprised this was not rated higher. When I heard about it at NYCC, I wasn’t too thrilled – kind of thought: “meh, sounds hokey.” I read it yesterday and was laughing in spite of myself, really entertaining so far. I got a little wrapped up in: comics is serious business! But this book is just plain fun.

  24. CaseyJustice CaseyJustice says:

    It took a few reads for this issue to grow on me, but I liked it. It’s not the self-aware Deadpool that I know (the one who’s actually a character), but this book is a straight comedy book, and it that way it works very well.

    I can’t believe I laughed at the “Wheelie hate me” joke.

  25. 400yrs 400yrs says:

    I liked the beginning of the last Deadpool run and I picked this up for the Tony Moore art to check it out before he gets his 4 or 5 issues in and moves on to his next thing.

    The art was underwhelming for Moore and I didn’t laugh at all. Won’t be coming back.

  26. Neeks Neeks says:

    This book was a solid 4 for me, not amazing like i was hoping but good enough to pick up the next issue and hope for it to continue to get better.

  27. oosuna oosuna says:

    Gave it a try but it wasn’t for me.

  28. consafo80 consafo80 (@consafo80) says:

    Good I liked it. A solid 4 I think. Will pick up #2 for sure.

  29. Ehh. Just thought it was okay. I was really hoping this would be great, but just turned out to be decent. Some jokes fell flat and overall the story just moved on at a pretty fast pace. I’ll try out the second issue but if that doesn’t wow me then I’m jumping off.

    I’ve never read a Deadpool book before, I kinda liked it.
