Wolverine-Week-42-in-Review: Belated Deadpool

Wolverine appeared in only THREE TITLES last week (October 14, 2009), though we do play catch up on an appearance I missed from the previous week.

So first up, the full-blown recap and reviews by our very own jrpbsp

As usual, I share my curmudgeonly impressions for the rest of the Wolverine docket, in this case the lone appearance I missed from last week…

Writer: Daniel Way
Pencils: Paco Medina
Inker: Juan Vlasco

Wolverine appears as more than a mere cameo, but less than a genuine guest-starring role.

I must admit that I haven’t read ‘Deadpool’ previous to this issue, but I did thoroughly enjoy Daniel Way’s Deadpool run in ‘Wolverine: Origins’.

That said, it seems the humor is no where near as funny here, reminiscent of an achingly unfunny episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’

I will let others weigh in on the merits of this series since Deadpool has been gaining a lot of fans, but as for this issue, while mildly amusing, it had little of the inane fun that I was hoping for…

One more bit of catch up to do. Deadpool #900. One panel appearance of Wolverine cutting off Deadpool’s head. Marvel’s continuing desire to do Wolverine appearances like this disgusts me.
