Review: Deadpool #27

Deadpool meets Steve Rogers!

No Caption Provided
Deadpool, who seemingly has way to many on-going and mini-series at the moment, gets into his 27th issue of this series, which features the awesomeness of a Daniel Way written Steve Rogers.

The Good

I'll admit it. I'm a little annoyed that Deadpool has numerous amounts of books right now, and most of them are pretty mediocre, and a few are just terrible. However, this book, since the beginning, continues to be a solid and fun read thanks mostly in part to Daniel Way's awesome and "laugh out loud" writing. The art is still awesome: a little bit of comic + a little bit of cartoon + a little bit of anime, the perfect mixture for a book this ridiculous. The whole issue is pretty much Deadpool blowing things up and firing guns, so if you're into that, you'll be in heaven. I love the dynamic between Deadpool and Steve Rogers. There isn't too much of it in this issue, but what's there is pretty funny. Next issue will have a lot more of it.

The Bad

Umm... Nothing really happens. Sure, it's a lot of fun, but the whole issue is a little throwaway, since it just leads up to Steve asking Deadpool to work with him. Other than that, there's nothing to complain about, it's Deadpooltastic!

The Verdict - 4/5

Even though I don't like the character as much as I used to, you can't deny that this book is solid and does what it's supposed to, make you laugh. It's essentially the 90s action film in comic book form. This is a good starting off point for new fans, so if you're interested in the character, pick this book up for sure. Recommended!
