This is the end for Deadpool.

The Good

Deadpool has been through a lot lately. There's been a fascinating balance throughout this series. We've seen moments of humor followed by some seriously dark times. Wade has also managed to get married, form new friends, and even discovered he had a daughter. It almost seemed as if everything was going great for Deadpool. Perhaps things were going a little too good for Deadpool.

For those wanting to see Deadpool cut loose, this is definitely the issue for you. When his friends and family are threatened, Deadpool unleashes his fury. We get some epic scenes. Brian Posehn, Gerry Duggan, Mike Hawthorne, Terry Pallot, and Jordie Bellaire do a phenomenal job telling this final story.

But isn't this the end for Deadpool?

We do indeed see the end of Deadpool. It did feel weird reaching the end of the story. This main story is followed by several others. We get to see different spotlight stories involving Deadpool and his supporting cast written and drawn by several creators. They do sort of feel like memorials in Deadpool's honor. If you're bummed about this being the final issue, you'll have plenty of content to make reading the end a little easier.

The Bad

This is a big book. There's a lot of really good content. That also means it has a big price tag. Regular readers, especially ones with a budget or set pull list will have to pay $9.99. It's fitting for Deadpool's final issue to be a grand celebration of sorts but it also, in a way, forces readers to have to pay more. The follow up stories are good but not all felt truly necessary for the ending of this volume.

The Verdict

Deadpool is dead. The immediate reaction likely contains doubt and suspicion. It's not really a spoiler since it's advertised on the very cover but we do see the death of Deadpool. Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan do a fantastic job along with the rest of the creative crew in closing out this volume. We've seen Deadpool gain many friends and family during the past 44 issues. You just might find yourself with some sad feelings. At least we get a pretty high caliber ending. The extra content by an army of talented creators helps make sadness go away but it also adds to the price. This is a massive final issue. Don't miss out on your chance to say goodbye to Deadpool and to raise a toast to a great volume.

A great send off really, no one has to grieve him no repercussions nothing!


all because the world dies with him!

Though if you wanna complain about the price pfft wait till you see the prices of the variants online.

Not a regular Deadpool series collector but i ended up jumping on a copy to see what all the fuss is about.... Let me tell you for $10 bucks i almost put it back on the shelf. haven't read it yet but im sure this would have been alot better at the $5 dollar price.

Oh well let's see what happens.

Would've gotten this, but it's way too expensive for my tastes.

I was expecting a nice collection of stories with deadpool like the wedding issue sadly I think only one of the extra stories was about deadpool the rest he kinda just guest starred in and was more about his supporting cast which for thw most part umm not really a fan of. I would have really liked a hydra bob or cable story.

The price tag sucks. Would have rather paid 4 or 5 bucks for just the regular story without all the filler side stories. Thought the ending was very fitting and it even caught me off guard at one point.

Incursion

I'm sad that he wasn't the only one that died including the person that Deadpool was hugging when it happened

Lets end the book by INCURSION AND KILLING DEADPOOL AND HIS DAUGHTER HUGGING

This Incursion crap better be good, otherwise smashing 2 universes together to ''end it'' is just a stupid m night shyamalan type crap.

Just curious, but what was the point of your spoiler censor, when you essentially spoiled it right after uncensored?

Really liked this issue. The real end surprised me, but the end-end confused the hell out of me.

I still don't know how I feel about this issue. I get all my books for 10% off so I don't care about the price, but that ending idk it was kinda funny (I think thats what they were going for) but then they hug and their faces get melted off in 1 panel and that's it like idk I feel like I'm still missing something.. does that makes any sense?
