    Pretty good issue. Definitely recommended for those who disliked Waypool.
    My personal favorite moment from this issue:
    Daily bugle headline:
    "decapitain america stars in truman show".

    I really liked Daniel Way version of Deadpool, so I'm gonna need some time to change onto this one. But Tony Moores art is fantastic.

    And wait, where is Nick Fury cameo?

    There wasn't. It's cool to hear that I'm not alone who enjoyed Waypool. While there was sometimes too much randumb, it had many cool moments.

    This version is closer to what Joe Kelly did with DP in 1997.

    On this forum, Deadpool fans are a minority. Seems to be gathering buzz elsewhere, though, and most reviews are very positive.

    Maybe becayse x-fans don't consider DP part of the x-universe? Can't say I blame them, but the sole fact that Deadpool got his own X-Men: Origins special speaks for itself.

    My local comic shop was sold out, but the guy there said he was going to order more. So hopefully next Wednesday I can get my hands on this.

    That's part of it, but it's mostly snobbery. Deadpool doesn't have that Soap Opera vibe X-Fans tend to favor.

    Another reason: Deadpool is like a slap in the face. He's a leading title character that defies nearly every expectation of what a leading character can be.

    This was a pretty mediocre comic. Should have not let a moderately entertaining Twitter feed convince me to buy it. I knew that after Deadpool MAX I would have a hard time ever liking the character again but I was at least hoping for more than one good joke.

    So true. Deadpool is very different from x-books. Despite being cursed with burnt body, and incapable of dying, Deadpool is not emo/angsty/brooding character. That's what I like about him.

    Exactly.

    Also, Personamanx, if you go into the book just looking at one aspect then you're going to be disappointed. Unless the book really is only about one thing, in which case it burns out real quick- Deadpool MAX being a good example. The last Deadpool series being a better one. Point is, I think you're missing the forest for the tree.

    I say, give the new series a chance. The writers are relatively new to comic book field and inexperienced. I think that they'll get better issue after issue.

    I expect a comedic character's book to be funny. This wasn't. Deadpool can be more than I bunch of dumb jokes, but only once in a blue moon. In the mean time I would want those jokes to at least be entertaining. I giggled once and honestly I don't even remember what made me do so, it was so weighed down by the number of failed jokes.

    At least the Skottie Young cover was nice.
