I think that this comic was one of the best that's come from Priest
Good Points: The best thing about this comic is that Preist
shows that he can do more with Deadpool than just flat chat action
and slapstick humour. The laid back feeling to this issue that makes
it feel kind of like a Seinfeld episode that explores what happens
when super villains share an apartment. This is a great idea and
Priest pulls it off well.
Another great thing is that Priest shows Deadpool to be the skillful
mercernary he is in the couple of fight scenes there is. In previous
issues Preist has tended to display Deadpool as incompetant for
the sake of humour, which was starting to grind on me.
As far as character development goes, Preist may be doing something
here. Deadpool seems to be getting compfrotable with his Tom Cruise
looks and seems fairly quiet (comparitively) during this issue.
Is Deadpool starting to like being handsome?
The art is good. And finally I hope this issue is an indication
that Priest is going to start building up a supporting cast. And
I hope Titania and Constrictor stay around as part of it. I think
the current room mate situation has heaps of potential.
Points: Problems? Well, the new costume. It's not really that
bad. It's not really that different. It's just got extra things
added to it, which don't really make a difference and aren't really
needed. I think Paco Diaz (series penciller) is probably complaining
though, because of the extra detail.
I still don't feel that Priest has lifted Deadpool
past the point of being just a humourous book yet. Eventhough this
issue shows more promise for that than previous issues.
