CAGE MATCH OF THE CENTURY: LIVE IN VEGAS

These Deadpool covers have been a consistent delight, ranging wildly in genre, but keeping a consistently hilarious tone. This one is no exception, I mean...... it's Deapool in a boxing ring punching out Abraham Lincoln. What more could you want?

Deadpool is getting back into the swing of braking the fourth wall, but not in an overbearing sense. At first it appears he's just going for a subtle sense of providing entertainment to those who he secretly knows are reading his exploits, but then he truly breaks it when he tells us how many presidents he's going to kill in the next few pages, and even suggests proper background music for the readers. I gotta say, I listened to it through the entire rest of the issue, and Deadpool was spot on, especially when we get to the boxing ring.

This issue we get a nice variety of scenarios for Deadpool to kill of a variety of presidents in various locations. It's a wold romp around the country with hilarious quips and an excessive abuse of Deadpool's healing factor.

The whole final battle with Lincoln in an arena is just perfect. It's almost exactly what the cover suggests, except even better. Lincoln brushes up agains the fourth wall in a way that bothers me a bit, a bit too much of an in-joke for Lincoln to be making, but otherwise..... it's Deadpool vs. Lincoln, no weapons, live in Vegas. And then William Taft swoops in riding in a flying bathtub and Reagan hijacks a russian space shuttle. It's that awesome, yes.

In Conclusion: 5/5

DEADPOOL. VS. LINCOLN. LIVE IN VEGAS. SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY. Need I say more? Oh and the artwork is perfectly lively and grotesque in all the right ways, and anybody reading it already knows that.

    I have been really enjoying this series, and have loved each issue that has been out so far, and this series is looking to be the best Deadpool series ever. Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan have done an excellent job of writitng this series, along with Tony Moore's fabulous artwork, and I hope it's as good as this for a long time.PlotThis issue sees Deaddpool face many of the remaining undead presidents, including John F. Kennedy., Herbert Hoover, and more. It also sees Deadpool finally square off ...

    Deadpool #4 Review 0

    ***SPOILER FREE REVIEW***I flat out loved the first 3 issues of the current run of Deadpool, as the story has been wacky and filled with humor that I quite enjoy. Unfortunately, this issue suffers as writers Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan have to push the metaphorical fast forward button to finish this plot arc by the next issue.We get alot of fun dialogue, similar to every issue of the current run and Deadpool. No doubt about it, Posehn and Duggan have a fun and zanny grasp on how to write Deadp...
