I did not see a general thread for this, so here you go.
So, I hear that Chris Hastings (of Dr. McNinja) is going to be writing for Deadpool.
I haven't read more than an issue of Deadpool, but from what I know of the character from pop cultural osmosis, this sounds like it could kick ass.
I am hesitant.
Hmm, I always thought Sohmer (or whatever the name of the artist/writer for LFG is) should be given a Deadpool comic to write.
This might be interesting. Then again, I barely read Marvel anymore.
I haven't bought a comic in over a year, and I haven't bought a Marvel comic since Civil War, but I'm gonna be first in line for this.
YES! OH MY GOD, YES!!!!
Deadpool hasn't been nearly as interesting a character since his Joe Kelly-written days IMO. If you want a Deadpool who is both hilarious and a really interesting three dimensional character, as opposed to the lolrandum walking meme he is today, you should check out the Deadpool Classic TP Bs and the stories therein.
I've been reading scant issues since Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn took over back in 2012 with the Dead Presidents story arc, and, let me say, it's bloody awesome. It's everything you'd expect from the best of Deadpool, and more. Just be warned, it seems that the series, as of 2015, is heading towards some major Continuity Lockout, referring to events that happened in the Original Sin tie-in in 2014 (that run's #34), while still being somewhat approachable.
i must ask, who is the artist who draws deadpool in the good the bad and the ugly?

you saved me hours of web searching, thank you
That was like the best arc ever.
The Way years started out pretty well but by the end were random event plots with unfunny jokes crammed in seemingly on a whim. But since the Duggan/Poehsen team took over he's back on track and for my money it's actually more enjoyable than the Joe Kelly run. Deadpool wanting to be a genuine hero but being pretty much incapable of it was interesting... the T-Ray and the who is actually Wade Wilson stuff was just a drag and the fate of the universe bits lost my interest. But the 2012-current stuff has him interacting more with the Marvel universe and keeps him at a more interesting level... for me at least.
Bless Joe Kelly. Wade and Peter gave us a great Mysterio beatdown and the OMD acknowledgement we deserved.
Haha interesting issue of Deadpool this. I'm disappointed its gonna be a while before we get another 2099 issue.
I've been meaning to ask, how IS the Spider-Man/Deadpool series? Kelly's run on Deadpool is one of my favorite comic runs of all time, and Spidey is my favorite Marvel character, so it's something I'm really interested in.
All I've seen of it so far are the variant covers and first page of the first issue, which seemed to be pandering to shippers, which was kind of off-putting to me.
I've been loving it. I also loved Kelly's Deadpool run - he is the Deadpool writer, to me - and he does some really fun stuff with both characters. The book is hilarious, while still having some real heart and emotion to it. So yeah, I think it's definitely worth checking out.
The last issue of Deadpool was a 4 in 1 crossover and it had Deadpool going after Typhoid Mary because he's upset she raped him
She did? Oh my God if so then when? Was it in one of his previous series like the Joe Kelly run or something?
It was the Joe Kelly run. Deadpool was on a particularly bad downward spiral, feeling incredibly depressed, and had even gotten drunk. Typhoid came to him disguised as Siryn, who Deadpool was in love with, and who he'd just had a pretty bad argument with. So it was a rape-by-deception situation, which is, you know, still rape.
What's interesting is that fiction has a really bad history with situations like this, but Kelly did treat it as a violation. Deadpool did feel violated, and angry, and depressed, and it made him sink even lower.
Holy shit I remember reading about that.
Fuck yeah that is so a dick move.
yeah the flashback in the recent issue skipped over the aftermath but just said that he was raped, and angry at Mary for what she did and then laughing at him about it.
Ok so finally read & I pretty much enjoyed it as always. Pretty hilarious & Wade & co. get a ton of awesome moments.
I like how he confronted Mary & how he kicked her ass in the end. Though I kinda got a little disappointed when his good side finally shown through & instead of giving her a very justified brutal beat down he instead gives her compassion & help for her mental illness. Though I like how she's stuck in the funny farm in a straight jacket meaning she's stuck in a fate worse than death for a while cause these mental treatments never work for villains. I now notice this but I think the whole point for this arc was nothing more than to resolve Wade's conflict with Mary with Daredevil, Power-Man & Iron-Fist along for the ride. I like that bout Duggan, how he makes all these stories that greatly uses Wade's past & bring up any problems he previously has.
Though this arc also reminds me why I sorta don't like Deadpool team-ups, cause while I know Wade brings it on himself it always depresses me that everyone treats him like he's absolute shit. I know he can be a jerk but God does have everyone have to treat him zero-respect all the time? Especially Daredevil's comment that he is "vile". I thought that was like really harsh of him, Wade may not be a saint but he's not that bad to be called vile.
Have they ever given Deadpool an in-universe explanation reason why he can break the fourth wall? Because I don't buy the idea "he's just that crazy"; there are crazier people out there and god-like entities who know how the multiverse work, and they don't realize they're fiction. I'll add my own headcanon
Wade Wilson is a mutant. His mutant power is the ultimate super-awareness; he's so aware of himself and his surroundings that he knows he and the Marvel Multiverse are a work of fiction. Naturally, his brain has locks preventing this power from showing. Only when he went under Weapon X was this gene unlocked. Dreadpool is the result of losing whatever parts of his brain that are trying to suppress this; he lost the cognitive dissonance that allowed him to both realize he's fictional yet treat things as real.
It depends very much on the author. Joe Kelly and others often didn't actually have him directly addressing the audience, simply genre/medium aware to a ridiculous degree and he tends to more lean on the fourth wall rather than break it per se. Some others suggest he's not actually aware of the real audience, he just thinks in-universe that he's in a comic book - and happens to be right.
And sometimes, yeah, he really is just that crazy, though I agree that's not a particularly satisfying explanation.
