Firstly, let my start by saying it arrived in perfect condition.
Now, what can you say about Deadpool? Well, I'd forgotten just how good the character is. Unlike the Marvel Universe's major characters, he hasn't been 'done to death'. Restricted to mini series and guest appearances, Deadpool is unlike any Super-Hero in any comic you've ever read.
With Hilarious dialogue, wonderfully drawn and detail filled fight scenes (keep your eye out for the things in the background), the Deadpool world is one that is filled with genuinely disturbing characters and story arcs. So be warned - this is not Spiderman or Daredevil - people get hurt, people get killed and people get to listen to Deadpool (the latter is quite probably the worst fate). I have to admit that some times I look at the front of the books to see if they are Parental Advisory or even Marvel Max. The creativeness of the production team is such that one minute I am laughing aloud, the next I'm staring in horrified disbelief and then I'm laughing again.
Deadpool is also a very complex character. The more you read, the more you learn about his history and the reasons why he does what he does.
The Classic series has got me hooked - so much so that I'm now getting the Deadpool Complete Collection, Marvel Now, in fact anything with Deadpool's name on it.
Weakness- the story can sometimes fall second to the jokes and violence, but then again, this isn't supposed to be Shakespeare.
So, unless you are squeamish and have had a sense of humour bypass, expect to be amazed. Hmm....Amazing Deadpool? Now there's a series title for you.
Everything set up in the last 2 years worth of issues comes to a head here and it is no disappointment.Of course this being deadpool nothing is as it seems .
There's a healthy dose of irreverence and pop culture clutter as usual in a deapool comic, but unlike the newer stuff it can get very dark and disturbing all at the same time.So if you like your mad merc as just zany and wild ,avoid this, but if you like him crazy funny and with a serious undertone buy now
Small disclaimer: youll definitely need the other volumes first or the old back issues.
N.b watch out for the rochambeau ref

The book itself is nice. Its the same dimensions as the others and the spine follows the previous volumes, so all of them look uniform on a shelf. The art inside the book is nice. No bleeding or distortion (I remember 1 of the previous volumes was not a good transfer).
All in all, its a good read and has some good art. Wish the newer books were this good.
So, within all these issues, we have art by Steve Harris, Walter McDaniel, Pete Woods, Anthony Williams, and Yancey Labat. Overall, there's nothing outright bad here with some nice art in the Annual and the 0 issue, and the same art as before in the regular issues with some cartoon-y drawings plaguing some of the panels. Otherwise, the Joe Kelly writing is fantastic with Deadpool finally getting comfortable with breaking the fourth wall and mentioning upping his comic sales and getting to the story within only a few pages. This also doesn't have the super-silly Deadpool flare that other issues have, but within the Dead Reckoning storyline, Deadpool struggles with being a hero and saving the world versus being a killer like he knows. It sacrifices humor for a real look at Deadpool's inner self and his struggles. For story-telling, this is great but for those looking for a hilarious Deadpool book, you won't find that until the very end at the 0 issue. Overall, the main story regarding the alien invader was a bit drawn out, but it worked well and involved the likes of Captain America, even! There wasn't anything outright special about this volume, although it did have the original covers and a little gallery at the end but a good read to continue the Deadpool series.
