Every month I seem to do the impossible: I falling in love with Daniel Way’s writing more and more each month. After reading this, I thought that those horrid issues of Wolverine: Origins were just a slump in his writing career, but then I read his biker story in Wolverine #74 this week, and he seems to be writing him just a crappily as he did back then. It seems that in Way’s mind, drama shouldn’t have anything exciting and be boring as hell. Luckily, he’s a much better comedy writer, and seems to completely cut loose with Deadpool #11. Oh well, as long as he has one winning series under his belt.

This issue continues the fight between Deadpool and Bullseye, and things sure take a turn to the bizarre. Wade has Bullseye’s arrow cause him some bad brain damage, so he’s partially having thoughts like he’s in Grant Morrison’s Seaguy. It’s alot of bizarre humor that we’ve come to love Deadpool for throughout the years (depending on who’s writing him, that is), and some standout moments include his brain’s use of Haiku to get him out of a tough situation, and of course, the meat-suit. Paco Medina’s art is top-notch as always, as his cartooney & violent mix is always a great spectacle. I think of Itchy and Scratchy whenever I look at the scenes in this book.

With all the high caliber books that came out this week, it may be a bit suprising that I made this book my Pick Of The Week. To me, Deadpool #11 narrowly beat out X-Factor and Batman for this one reason: When I read this, I see glimpses of Nextwave. For those of you that aren’t familiar, Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. is the brainchild of Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen, and was hands-down the funniest book on the racks. It was deliciously bizarre, violent, and all around hysterical. As we all know, however, the best books on the racks aren’t immune to getting the axe, and this was cancelled after issue #12. I liked Deadpool #11 for nearly all the same reasons I loved Nextwave, and I can only hope that this book becomes its spiritual successor.
