Generally favorable ratings

Based on 9 critic ratings.


When the X-Men won’t return Deadpool’s calls for a Krakoa portal on Monster Island, Wade decides to drop by for a visit. Apparently, the new X-Men home isn’t taking visitors. RUDE. It’s an entire nation of biological weapons and mutant warriors versus a merc with a mouth. GAME ON!

    If you are not a Jeff fan, you certainly will be by the end of Deadpool #6. The issue is a fun detour into the land of the X-Men, and that provides writer Kelly Thompson plenty of material to break the fourth wall, and Wade doesn’t disapPoint. Having Wade interact with the X-Men and their newly created nation is as delightful as you expect, from his methods of actually getting into Krakoa to the chaos that ensues once he gets there and the ramifications of his overall visit. The true star of the show though is Jeff the Shark, who makes every scene he’s in a delightful joy, and though he doesn’t actually talk, Deadpool plays off of the adorable though lethal little guy amazingly well. Artist Kevin Libranda and colorist Chris Sotomayor make that central fight absolutely shine, while letterer Joe Sabino brings all of that hilarious dialogue to life even when the fists (or sharks) aren’t flying. Deadpool hasn’t been this entertaining in quite some time, and this is easily one of the books I look forward to most every month.

    This book is a whole lot of fun. It maximizes the hilarious nature of Deadpool and utilizes a ton of X-Men. Fans of Deadpool and the X-Men can’t miss this book. Thompson’s Deadpool is mischievous, manic, and cleverly uses its characters while never losing sight of Deadpool’s innocence.

    But Why Tho?

    Ultimately, the issue is a great addition to the library of Deadpool storylines. Thompson and the rest of the creative team brought their A-game. This is an undeniably brilliantly funny issue that is more than worthy of your hard-earned dollars! If Thompson can keep knocking out stories like this, then Deadpool fans can sit back and enjoy the hurricane of comedy.

    Deadpool #6 makes for a great jumping on point after wrapping up the last arc and demonstrates what’s made this series so much fun to read. Also, if you’re a fan of Jeff the land shark, or have yet to lay eyes on this magnificent creature, then this is a must read issue.

    Bleeding Cool

    Deadpool #6 sees Wade Wilson travel from the borough formerly known as Staten Island to Krakoa in Kelly Thompson’s latest issue, where Jeff the Land Shark shines.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Deadpool #6 is a fun road trip to Krakoa with great art and a bunch of laughs. Deadpool may not have gotten what he wanted out of it, but I did, and I hope that continues.

    Comic Watch

    Deadpool #6 is a remarkably fun and entertaining issue exploring just why Wade Wilson hasn’t been involved in the X-Men relaunch, but the narrative hurdles prove to just be a little too much for the issue to be as successful as it could’ve been.

    Kelly Thompson’s writing in this issue captures the hilarity of Deadpool’s personality in his poorly veiled desire to be a part of the X-Men.

    “Deadpool” #6 is a fun and satirical look at the X-Men status quo.
