    I've never read Deadpool but gave #1 and #2 a shot because I found the character interesting enough to catch my attention in the past and obviously #1 is a good starting point.

    I won't be continuing with Deadpool though. The art is great, I really love it but the characterisation and the general story are shocking. It feels almost like Deadpool is a 10-year-old school boy who has just figured out what a one-liner is. It's all a bit much and I just don't care for the character one bit. He's not funny, he's not intriguing, he has no depths.

    The story of a bunch of presidents being reanimated is just straight up ridiculous, it seems like something that that same 10-year-old school boy could come up with in his sleep.

    I just wish Moore's art was on a book I enjoy. That's the only thing I'm disappointed that I'm going to be missing out on.

    I love Deadpool when he is written right and i feel like this is the best Deadpool issue since Cable and Deadpool ended? Ways run was mostly hit or miss for me.

    I didn't even read the last few issues cause the humor became more potty obsessed.

    From what I understand, it did well. 4th ranking, I think.
    The new team is awful? What don't you like?
    I don't know how much Classic Deadpool/Cable and Deadpool you've read, but most think this is an improvement over Way. It may not be as polished as Kelly's run, but it certainly is reminiscent of Priest, Tieri, and Nicieza. And you can probably throw Simone into the mix. Is there room for improvement? Yes, definitely. Is the President arc going to go on too long, maybe. But it's nice to see Deadpool wisecracking again.

    Yeah it did come in 4th in the November sales I think. Only beaten by All New X-men, Batman, and Captain America in that order. So it beat Thor, Hulk, FF, UA #2, and Ironman. If its sales continue to be good I can't see them really changing much. It would be a little strange if they do.

    I had a backlog of stuff to read and Deadpool #2 was in that pile. I'm not a fan of the character but with this new series I decided to give it a try. i felt in both issues the comedy fell flat and the S.H.E.I.L.D agent who has to recruit Deadpool seems like a swipe of Amanda Waller. The art is very well done but when I read a book that is supposed to be funny I expect to laugh and that really didn't happen for me. I probably won't be picking it up again.

    Honestly, I just didn't find this issue funny, few giggles aside.

    Read issue #7. If you don't giggle, then nothing in the world will make you giggle.

    The writers are new to writing comics, but to me every issue is better than the last.

    Well, they're certainly making good on their promise to go to darker places.

    I agree. Deadpool is both funny and disturbing. And the disturbing part is actually very scary to read.
