    The new series finds its stride early in Deadpool #2, taking the wildly fun concept established in its opening to new depths with the help of a couple of well known Marvel characters, proving this isn’t just another irreverent Deadpool series!

    It’s an interesting premise to begin with” Deadpool as king of, well, anything. King of Monsters perhaps seems about right. The issues raised in this comic and the direction it’s heading look to do what I really like about Deadpool comics” they can play the humour card left right and center, but at the same time cover some pretty serious issues.

    Everyone who knows Deadpool — like, actually knows the character — is well aware he’s more than just a comedic merc. There’s some depth to Wade Wilson. Especially emotionally.

    Every once in a while, lets that side of him show. Usually a kid, particularly his, brings that out in him. But in Deadpool #2, Kelly Thompson offers a slightly different slant on “emotional Wade Wilson.” One we don’t often see.

    Deadpool is simply a delight through and through, though it truly excels because of the supporting cast. Writer Kelly Thompson knows how to get the best out of Wade Wilson, pairing him with a cast of hilarious and oddball creatures that he can riff against, and yes, that includes his little shark friend Jeff. Thompson knows when to carve out a poignant moment though, with an excellent exchange between Cap and Wade that reveals a quick but effective peek at the real person underneath the mere with a mouth exterior. Artist Chris Bachalo and colorist David Curiel are on their A Game as well, though at times it can be a tad bit confusing following the storytelling form panel to panel. Kraven the Hunter as a villain is an interesting choice here, and so far I’m still waiting on the big hook to really draw me into this conceit. That said, everything else is just so delightful, and I still can’t get enough of it.

    There’s another really important part of any good Deadpool story: it’s got to be flexible. Without that ability to bound between ideas, emotions, and levels of reality, it can never flourish. In this regard, the latest Deadpool series is success thus far. But if the king wants to enjoy a dynasty lasting more than a few issues, it needs adjust its crown pronto.

    Overall issue two was a decent read. The artwork during action scenes and busier panels needs improvement. Hopefully it will become better as the series goes on since I enjoy Bachalo’s cartoonish, blocky character designs. The story is still very interesting. Thompson has legitimately got me curious about where she’s going to take these characters and the monster island situation. The fact that she’s managed that in just two issues is impressive and might be enough to keep my interest even if the humour seems aimed at a younger audience. Despite its flaws I still recommend picking this issue up. The interactions between Captain America and Deadpool alone are worth the price of the issue.
