There were a lot of questions (most notably: where was the Nihilist Deadpool during all the prior fisticuffs), but all of them have been answered satisfactorily in what was a very satisfying end to a very weird idea. Between the battle with Deadpool the Duck and company, the loss of his entire party (yes, even Pandapool, the species that endangers you), Deadpool finally confronts his most twisted doppelganger for some answers.
This issue manages to keep the sense of humor that elevated the previous ones while also commenting on some very salient observations about the nature of not only fiction, but of the mentality of creators (and not just in comics). As always, when big, philosophical ideas come up in a Deadpool comic, it’s best to tread lightly, lest the reader feel they’re being lectured to and Bunn definitely accomplishes this, weaving the central themes of this book, as well as the two prior, into a fascinating look at metatextual commentary.
This series in all was really good and really good written. In all I would rate this issue a 8.5/10 and the series a 8.5/10 that’s all for this series and as always keep on marveling!
