    Since there is now officially a Deadpool movie in the making, this is going to be my contribution to our Hooray To Hollywood buddy read.All Good Thingsmust come to an end.Sadly, this is Deadpool s final volume.Ever They will never bring him back Never ever..Yeppers This is it for the Merc with a Mouth, so you better run out and buy up all the copies of this sucker Right now Before others discover that the Marvel universe is going to collide withwhatever it s colliding withand there are no comics to be had Gosh, I really thought Marvel was doing ok, what with all those blockbuster movies merchandise sighI guess they just couldn t afford to keep the lights on any, and just decided to go out with a bang Man, I m sure gonna miss these guys.Wait What Marvel isn t going out of business They re just rebooting their comics Oh Yeah I guess that makes sense Anyway Was this any good I thought so, and if you re a fan of Posehn s Deapool, then this one will probably be a winner for you, too I ve had a love less than love relationship with this title, but overall I liked it Deadpool goes on a journey of self discovery in volume 8, leaving behind his wife, daughter, and friends to find out who he really is, and what he really wants out of life.And how does that turn out for him, you ask Well, mostly, he just ends up shooting lots of people But that s ok, because in the end, he figures out what he wants the most.People might complain that Deadpool gets a sorta lame send off But, if you think about it, that s exactly the kind of send off he d expect.After all, Wade puts the Aim in Lame Get it Get it Whatever It was funny.Alrighty I m ready for em to blow this shit up Really, Tony Do you need to worm your way into everything

    That was FANTASTIC This was hands down my favourite run of Deadpool ever Absolutely hilarious with some genuinely touching moments Whoever s going to take the reins of the new Deadpool book after Secret Wars has some big shoes to fill It saddens me that the great supporting cast from this run will probably disappear when the new writer starts.What You thought he was dead and that he wasn t coming back in a couple of months Don t be so flarking ridiculous Have you never read a comicbook before, you cretin If you ve actually never read a comicbook before, I apologise for being so mean.

    3.5 Stars I m the man that can regrow anything, including, evidently, a conscience Ultimately I m giving this rating to the first 3 4ths of this compilation because the last sections felt a bit like disjointed filler Up until then the storyline and the dialogue plugged along well enough albeit anticlimactic in Deadpool s final sendoff before the comic reboots There was still that winning blend of snide, off the wall humor and big hearted poignancy that this reader consistently finds so appealing about Posehn s grasp on the Deadpool psyche This collection opens with Deadpool having a bit of an identity crisis And not the fun cosplay kind No, Wade is stuck in a melancholy funk that even his gorgeous and accommodating wife can t snap him out of And so he leaves his family and devoted friends and takes on a job he hopes will get him back in the game buying him time to find himself But the job isn t what he thought it would be, and his eccentric moral compass forces his hand Once again Deadpool is made to reassert that, while he s not what could ever be termed a good guy, he s not a bad guy either And there s nothing he won t do to protect those he cares for Unfortunately we got no real closure on the threadline involving Deadpool s wife and her newly awakened army of uber purple dudes Yeah, I m not sure what all was going on there I should probably have read these comics in intended order, rather than the order in which the covers appealed to me Oh well I m here for Deadpool, not his queenly bride.Although, I ll be the first to admit I enjoy the dynamic of their relationship, and appreciate how well she treats him Between her lack of frailty, patience, and genuine concern, it continues to look like a solid match for our favorite mouthy merc Particularly when they have date nights that look like this Yeah She ll do.I wouldn t call this the most ideal closure for a beloved character s storyline, but it wasn t wholly disappointing More of a riding off into the sunset backlit by explosions, and set to the Goldengirls theme song Not so terribly far off from how Wade would probably want it.Favorite Quote I found where I belong Not with the people I love but out here, in Hell Protecting them Deadpool

    Aww man Like the title implies, all good things must come to an end, even this awesome run of Deadpool comics.This final volume sees Wade trying to get back on track with his life after his experiences as Zenpool during Axis changed how he looks at the world Once again he heads off on his own, leaving Shiklah to fend for herself it does make me wonder why he married her when she barely appears in most of the stories afterwards and ends up in a wartorn country helping some rebels fight Omega Red It s a nice straightforward plot that has a few twists and turns near the end which may or may not be fulfilled post Secret Wars , but the real draw is the emotional journey that Wade goes through and how he comes out of the other side a changed man The final issue, the enormous 250, sees Deadpool take on Ultimatum for the final time, and ends with Secret Wars exacting its toll on the poor guy It s a fitting end, and actually ends on a happy note despite all the death and destruction The back ups from 250 are all included too, and range from alright to downright hilarious, with nothing really letting the side down.The artwork is strong throughout, with Salva Espin pencilling the main story and his exaggerated facial expressions really working wonders with the characters involved, whilst series mainstay Mike Hawthorne draws the lead story in issue 250 and a cavalcade of new Marvel talent pick up the back up stories.It s a shame to see a run by two writers who really seem to get how to strike the balance between silly Wade and serious Wade end when they re really hitting their stride, but once again, as the title implies, all good things must come to an end, and hopefully what comes next if Deadpool survives will be just as good, if not better.

    This is the final volume of this run of Deadpool and sees the character die at the end That may sound like a spoiler but seeing as though every issue for a while was counting down to the death I don t feel too bad about it Essentially, this is a best of volume Initially it sees the depressed Deadpool take on a dodgy job for Roxxon but he soon decides he doesn t like doing immoral jobs and fights against them This leads to lots of fighting and a battle with Omega Red It s fairly standard Deadpool fare but it s interesting to see the changed character going about his business We then get a short supernatural story with Deadpool s wife Shiklah which rekindles their relationship and is a homage to that side of the series And finally Ultimatum go to kill Deadpool s friends and family and so Deadpool fights back against every single one of them, which is really rather good fun This all ends in Deadpool s death Now I ve seen a few people complain about this fact that it s a rubbish ending But I think the point it that it s an ending to the series and the storyline rather than the character Without giving too much away, it leads straight into the Secret Wars event and it s heavily hinted that Deadpool isn t going to stay dead What we do have however is an end to the plot lines and Deadpool finally finds his place in life There s some decent back up material here too Various Deadpool creators tell short stories of the series supporting cast which works really well Most are very enjoyable, lots of fun and feature all sorts of other characters from the Marvel universe And there s a final flashback story from the series writers which tells what Deadpool was doing during the Infinity Gauntlet saga Except really it is an excuse for almost the entire Marvel universe to pop up and talk about Deadpool and it s really fun There s lots of fun to be had here and I personally thought it gave a satisfying conclusion to the run Posehn and Duggan have been fantastic for Deadpool and I very much doubt this is the end of the character We just have to see what Secret Wars brings

    Deadpool is definitely a fave of mine and this run of comics has definitely tested me I m not all for deadpool guns blazing and being a crazy ass with no emotion, but i m not all for dadpool and getting married either, there need s to be a balance and this series just took a deep dive off a cliff Zenpool was the worst, the axis crossover was the worst, around volume 4, or 5 of this run the creators were bored and 100% done with deadpool They should have passed it onto someone else, anyone But no they ve just dragged deadpool to the most shitty conclusion It stopped being funny, or interesting Some will like it i guess if you re a sappy fucker, but it was just meh, and it s hard not to feel like it s been a bit of a kick in the teeth when one of your fave characters gets lumped with shitty stories.

    I finished the whole series within 2 days, I am really satisfied with the content and how Deadpool s marriage turn out with Shiklah I really like how they present the past and future by changing the art style This book is wierd, I mean, how did he found out his past by starting to kill the evil, dead president of America Nevermind, I really ejoyed this book.

    Well, that was conclusive I would recommend Posehn and Duggan s arc for any fan of Deadpool, or anyone looking to become a fan because if you read it, you will be a fan They really have a feel for his character and these books are regularly laugh out loud funny and quite touching.
