    Overall, I think this deserves a 10 out of 10. The writing, the art, the characters, everything was excellent. I truly can’t wait to see what’s next for Deadpool and Princess. I have so many theories running around in my head as to what could be next. If you’re a Deadpool fan like me, I can guarantee you’ll find this comic exciting and compelling!

    Deadpool #1 is a nice change of pace as the sad sack that is Wade Wilson is trying to mend things with his trusty Symbiote doggo and a desire to make things right in his life. Fans of the previous run will love Ziglar picking up where that left off, with a promise for more development with Deadpool’s daughter. With plenty of action, this will appear to fans, both new and old. This will be a strong contender for best #1 issue of the year due to pace and emotionality.

    Deadpool #1 is a solid first issue for what to expect from Ziglar and Antônio. Filled with humor and action, it will satisfy fans of the character. I cannot wait to see where the pair takes the regenerating degenerate in the future.

    Deadpool #1 is not likely to win over those who haven’t already embraced Wade Wilson as their unlikely anti-hero savior. For those who only know him from the movies, however, this is the perfect entry into the world of the comics. For those who are already fans, this is a solid reminder of everything Wade Wilson is, opening what promises to be an eventful and fun run.

    The old-school fan in me wishes that the tenth Deadpool #1 were actually just #336, but new readers should be able to climb on here without too much of a knowledge gap, and the clean, expressive art does good things for ol’ Wade, especially as he tries to work out his feelings with a whole lot of “keelings,”. I do want to know what happened to The Atelier, Valentine, and the Deathstrikes, though, and hope that there is a satisfying answer.

    The narrative is somewhat confusing and difficult to follow, possibly they explain everything in the next installment.

    Cody Ziglar (Miles Morales: Spider-Man) and Roge Antonio take over covering the Merc with a Mouth’s new adventures (The timing of this title coming out is more surprising given us how “Deadpool & Wolverine” will be out in theatres this summer) but as much as I want to find any excitement for this new series, it feels like the creative team played it safe by having Wade Wilson go back to his mercenary roots instead of continuing the direction from Alyssa Wong’s run, the status quo was reverted which I feel hurts this title because while Wade’s tenure as a merc was always fun to read while taking on the gory elements of it, it would have been nice to see something new and exciting; Wade’s humor, however, also feels flat and not-so-comical that doesn’t do him any favors because while Ziglar is not copying Fabian Nicieza, Joe Kelly (He set the bar high with his beloved run) or Daniel Way he could have turned the one-liners and jokes up a notch. There are a few laughs here and there, but for now, it’s the only good thing about this issue.

    Deadpool #1 didn’t grab me. But the comics world is better off with an ongoing series centered around the Merc with a Mouth. This may not have broken any new ground, but it delivers on what it’s aiming for and readers will certainly receive a few laughs. Sometimes that’s enough.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Deadpool #1 gives readers plenty of action, but Ziglar misses the boat by delivering a Deadpool who is more sarcastic sadsack than the Merc with a Mouth. Deadpool’s personality sets him apart, so missing out on what makes Deadpool special, building the story on Alyssa Wong’s fatally flawed run, makes this issue feel like a non-starter.
