  1. Double dose of Spidey and Deadpool this week?  My quip-sensor has gone into the red!

  2. Last issue was a lot of fun and I’m so happy to see Weasel back.

  3. @TheNextChampion:  agreed.  I love seeing little nods to the past Cable & Deadpool series as it was one of my faves, just had that perfect meld of comedy and action.

  4. This was actually a weak issue if I’m being honest.

    I don’t know why Daniel Way has stopped the ‘Deadpool being a hero’ angle but he definitely did it here. Art was pretty iffy too. Not the first time this series hit a low note but hopefully it picks right back up for next issue. 

  5. i don’t even know if i can get my self to drive across town for this.. 

  6. To each his own I suppose, but I thought this issue was absolutely hilarious and really clever. His love/hate relationship with Weasel is a welcome return. And you knew he couldn’t be a purely good character for long.

  7. A few months ago, I read a column which discussed this book in context with the overall Marvel universe. Since the beginning of this particular book, it has often been tied into the central arcs … stories involving Deadpool were somewhat central to Secret Invasion and Dark Reign (although they certainly weren’t pivotal), then, as I recall, Deadpool went on this strange but funny foray into being a pirate before landing in San Francisco trying to join the X-Men, and exerting a peripheral influence on the Utopia story.

    I don’t see Way dropping the "Deadpool being a hero" angle here … Deadpool being a sidekick of Weasel in Vegas is a variant of that theme more or less–so it is just more subtle in this current arc.

    What I think is interesting, though, is that the arc for the moment seems independent of anything else going on in the rest of the Marvel Universe … which, however weak the story may feel to some, I think is good for the book in the long run. If this book is finally striking out its own for good, then I’m definitely sticking it out, because I think it has been fairly entertaining up until now.

    Finally, while I too enjoyed the reappearance of an old Deadpool regular, I disliked the disappearance of Deadpool’s ongoing three-way internal monologue.
