Deadpool #16


Comic series


Release date

September 11, 2013
Overall, other than a few minor things such as Agent Preston, DEADPOOL 16 was a great read and continues to be one of the titles I look forward to picking up from my bin. I liked the change of pace and the added element of another person of the Wilson lineage, messing with the very rarely stunned Deadpool. I’m hoping the quality of this book continues, and is able to change tones consistently in order to keep the awesome character of Deadpool surrounded by stories just as awesome.
3.5 out of 5 stars
Deadpool #16 is a very intriguing issue. Butler’s horrific schemes are outlined to the reader, whilst the true scope of his operations and motives are still not quite fully revealed. More importantly, it seems that Deadpool’s entire life looks set to be turned upside down. Or is it all just Butler’s manipulation? If all this uncertainty isn’t enough to get you excited for next issue, then I don’t know what is.
Grade: A-
The dark and much more psychological take on the character may not be for everyone, yet the quality of the script, the action and the art cannot be denied as The good, the bad and the ugly continues its excellent take on the Merc with a Mouth.
5 out of 5 stars
Oh, and if you're one of the people who dropped this book because you weren't a fan of the humor, I implore you to give this series a second chance and pick up issue #15.

This feels like the first real story arc by Duggan and Posehn that holds some true gravitas, as it delves into Deadpool’s dirty past and features enemies that possibly know him better than he knows himself. Looking forward to the next three installments.
