Words cannot describe how surprised I am by Deadpool MAX. I hate the character of Deadpool and everything he stands for in the incessant ramble of 1990s stylised comic books; but, somehow, David Lapham is penning a Deadpool that is both fun to read and exciting to uncover piece-by-piece. So far this series has been comprised of one-and-done issues; this one focuses on racist cult leader, Baron Zemo, which was hilariously realised, satirising the very foundations of racism within society. The art by Kyle Baker is fairly decent, suiting the book stylistically rather than being overly good, in general. Check this out if you’ve ever been curious about Deadpool, but have been put on by regular continuity’s moronic, unfunny version; this series might surprise you.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 3 - Good


  1. how can you give bakers art a 3 id give it a 1

  2. Kyle Baker’s stuff is incredibly stylized, was what definitely attracted me to the book, including Deadpool sorta taking on a judge/jury/executioner role.

  3. I’ve stuck it right in the middle of both of you; sometimes it’s great, sometimes not, but it always fits with the tone of the book.
