  1. I have never looked more forward to a Deadpool issue than I do for this one.

  2. The last “lost” issue was real fun, so I’m really looking forward to this one.

  3. This isn’t just filler either- like #7, it’s going to set up the next arc.

  4. I have a feeling this is going to be amazing. If it’s anything like the last “lost” issue it’s going to be fun. But the setting and having 70s Luke Cage is an amazing combo.

  5. I want to drop this title but I can’t! Dammit!

    • And after this is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly- not only will it involve Captain America and Wolverine, but it’ll also go deeper into the pasts of Deadpool and possibly the Weapon program itself.

  6. Wonderful issue.

    What great designs and layouts by Koblish to make this feel like something from the 70s. Everything about this felt authentic including the hilarious ‘terrible’ coloring by Val Staples. But I like how Koblish was able to experiment within these pages but not make it feel out of place. But let’s not forget Duggan and Posehn’s script which had a lot of great jokes and 70s callbacks. Although Deadpool continually doing contemporary references made me laugh as well. This series hasn’t been POTW since the 2nd issue so I’m glad to have say this was the best thing I read this week.

    5/5 (POTW)

  7. I wasn’t sure I was going to buy this. I’m not a Deadpool fan but I like Posehn, so I was on board for the first arc. That ran out of steam for me so I hopped off before the second arc. But I love Iron Fist and Luke Cage and that era of comics so I scanned this at my LCS. Just opening it up, I knew I had to buy it.

    Pick of the week doesn’t cover it. This was absolutely my favorite single issue of the year. Every single panel is packed with in-jokes, both in the dialogue and the art. Awesome references to the 70s, but even better 4th wall breaking references to modern day stuff (both the Iron Man 3 and the Aunt May bit made me laugh out loud, which is incredibly rare for any comic book I read). It read and looked exactly like a comic book from the 70s, but with some modern sensibilities thrown in. I was astounded. Read it twice, back to back.

    And they NAILED Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Deadpool. All three, characterized perfectly. Man. And the villain! I cannot get enough.

    I know the rest of this arc won’t be like this, but I’ll hop on board for now. Outstanding effort by all.

  8. The chick throwng up in her mouth when deadpool pulled up his mask was awesome!!! Aunt May with pepper spray!!! What was she doing in the red light district anyways??? This book had so many moments. Love it all.

  9. After the recent poor covers in this great series, this issue was an absolute treat!
