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!

Released: September 4, 2013

Two warring armies of Deadpools have been assembled to ensure either the destruction or salvation of all existence and last issue left us with the reveal of the ever ravenous Galactipool. Bunn’s impressive tale of meta-awareness and multiverses has allowed a lot of Deadpool’s trademark humor to return to what has actually been a fairly dour series (though an extremely well-written one) and the absurdity has been brought to epic levels as we see a veritable legion of different Deadpools clash. 

Lady Deadpool leads the charge as a Watcher that watches ONLY Deadpools breaks his vow of non-interference (cause seriously, what ELSE do Watchers do but break their vows?). Bunn has done a great job actually giving all these seemingly carbon-copy characters their own voices and personalities and even done an admirable job creating some legitimately dramatic and emotional moments. We see LadyPool give up her life to save the rest of the Deadpools which was sad. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling!
