This was a very good ending and a great read. The overall story was excellent, with lot's of nice 'touches'. This wasn't just an issue full of action and wasn't rushed (like a lot of 'end of story arc' issues seem to be). Instead this issue delved into the characters and from them came the action and the story. The art was very good too (though a bit rushed in places) telling the story as much as the words did.

What can I say? I liked just about everything about this comic and I could generate a list, but I won't. I think this was a great conclusion to the storyline, with thrills, spills and surprises. Out of all the comics I read Deadpool continues to be the best in every way!

Five out five 'pools for this great concluding comic! Well worth your hard earned cash.
