Users who pulled this comic:


  1. tempted to buy it just because the cover amuses me.

  2. The preview for this issue was amazing!! I’m still in.

  3. My name ain’t Conner I’m still down.

  4. Really enjoying this! The Marvel “Then” title makes me laugh haha, really happy that the editors are letting them do this story which I thought I heard was going to be kinda controversial, can’t wait!

  5. Scott Koblish is an interesting choice for an artist. Seeing the preview I kinda wish I didn’t because it spoils what this is going to be in regards to a flashback. So if anyone hasn’t seen the preview I suggest you don’t and not spoil the mystery.

    This looks like we’re gonna have something special here.

  6. Koblish will be a nice change of pace for this issue, but I thought Mike Hawthrone was taking over Moore’s duties on the pencils, which I was rather excited about, as it is sad to see Moore (in his typical fashion) leave this book so early, it was nice to know Hawthrone would be taking his place being that he did such a great job working with Moore on Fear Agent. They share very similar styles that will work well to keep this book popular (for me anyways), as Moores art is what originally pulled me towards this title.

    • Hawthrone is taking over after this issue for the forseeable future. Just a good ol one shot by Koblish 🙂 Hawthorne was hand picked by Tony Moore to take over this book when he left so I`m really excited

    • Here is some of what Gerry Duggan said about this issue and Mike Hawthorne on a Deadpool forum.

      `As most of you know, issue 7 is a one-off issue drawn by Scott Koblish – and I’m delighted with what we got away with murder in the issue. It’s a straight-up period comedy. It’s the first issue without Tony, but it’s also going to sell out because Iron Man/Stark is only one of many 616 guest stars.

      I want to thank you all for giving us the benefit of the doubt – and making #MarvelNow Deadpool a hit. Whatever “your” Deadpool is, I think you’re going to see him in our first year — but I implore you to give Hawthorne a chance because he’s Tony’s hand-picked artist to follow him on this arc, and this book is going to make him a star.`

  7. Wow, that was really fun to read! The artwork was simply amazing and loved the whole 80`s vibe. Really makes me wonder what else Koblish has done before and really would love to see more of his work, a really talented artist right there. This hands down is my pick of the week!

    • Koblish is drawing a Wyatt Earp comic written by Joe Caramanga ( prob didn’t spell that right).

      They had a successful kickstarter campaign about 6 months ago to which pledged, still waiting for my comic, can’t wait!!

  8. Great issue.

    Great vibes.

    I’m your dingleberry.

  9. This was a blast to read. Kinda reminded me of the Joe Kelly issue of Deadpool where he traveled back to an old issue of Spider-Man. The gratuitous 70s/80s references, the horrible costume for Deadpool, and how Tony acts while drunk were just hilarious. Not all of the jokes worked but there were more hits than misses. The art was pretty great too with Koblish going for that retro style. Although some of the layouts didn’t evoke the era that he worked so hard to convey early on. But the coloring was consistent and it must have been hard for Staples to go outside the lines like he did.

    If you compare it to that classic Joe Kelly issue I like that much more. But this was still a fun issue and a nice one-off story before going into the next arc.


  10. This was awesome. The first arc of Deadpool was great, in this was a brilliant bridge issue before the next one. The jokes were great, I laughed out loud several times. Great work. Looking forward to next issue.
    Pick of the Week for Me 5/5

  11. I’m not a Deadpool guy but this series keeps giving me reasons to keep picking it up. I thought I might be able to sneak out the back door once the first arc finished but this Bronze Age self aware special was a treat…. I’m in… Still

  12. This was by far the best issue yet!
