CCL Review: Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe 1

And Death will have no dominion. Or class. Or Coothe…

I went to my local comic book shop a couple of weeks ago and lo and behold…it was a delightfully slow Wednesday. With little committment on my regular titles, I scanned the shelves to see which books I might branch out and give a shot.


The first thought that crept into my head was the fact that three things sell books:

1) Striking Covers. (And this series boasts EXCELLENT painted covers.)

2) Titles that start with “DEADPOOL”.

3) Titles that end with “KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE”.

So I never put the book back down and off I went to make my purchase. Even the owner of the shop said “Oh wow. You’re buying Deadpool.”

“Yeah, but not my choice,” I retorted. “I just know generally these books end up being sought after.”

My shop owner KNOWS I loathe this character. I think Deadpool is utilized in the most silly, juvenile and unredeeming in the Marvel Universe. Even his appearances in UNCANNY X-FORCE are still not where they could be. However, I’m obviously in the minority as fans and collectors alike did exactly what I thought they’d do and snag every single copy of this book that shops had to offer. Now going into second printings, this book could be Marvel’s sleeper summer hit.

Honestly, I thought the story was terrible…
