Entertaining trade, though missing some pieces..., May 7, 2008

He's the Merc with a Mouth, the Assassin with Elan, the Wryest Wisecracker of the Weapon X Program, now in a collection of his earliest sagas! Deadpool, with sidekick Weasel in tow, sets out on a quest for romance, money, and mayhem - not necessarily in that order - only to learn he's being hunted by an enemy he killed years before! As if that isn't enough, the Juggernaut crashes into the action, and it's the unstoppable vs. the un-shut-up-able! But all may not be lost if the sultry Siryn
I'm a huge Deadpool fan, specifically of Joe Kelly's run on Deadpool (which ran from issue #1 to 33 of the ongoing series).The PROS of this collection: It collects some key early appearances of Deadpool and provides background for the new reader Marvel is finally acknowledging the popularity of this character This edition features the writing of Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid and briefly, Joe Kelly, as well as art by Joe Madureira, Ian Churchill and all-too-briefly Ed McGuinnessThe cons of this collection:-Rob Liefeld's art is terrible (but at least it's only one issue). Liefeld is one of the biggest hacks in the industry and I usually avoid anything he's (crudely) drawn.-The printing on Deadpool #1 (Kelly and McGuinness) is a little "off", by which I mean the lines are fuzzy and the art is slightly distortedOverall, I hope Marvel collects the Deadpool run by Kelly and...

I think it's great Marvel made a classic tpb for Deadpool. It's a great thing for fans who are interested in his beginnings. Unfortunately, this trade isn't great for longtime hardcore fans, as it's missing several early issues, unfortunately 4 of these set up his first limited series, which is in this trade.Casual fans may not care, but as a long time Deadpool fan, many of the issues aren't included. In addition to the X-Force (3, 4)/Spider-Man (16) crossover (where Deadpool kidnaps Black Tom, setting the X-villain up for a tree experimentation and Deadpool's limited), it's missing Deadpool's battle with Weapon X noob Kane (XF 2), two fights with Cable and Domino (XF 14 and 15) and Secret Defenders 15 (with Luke Cage, who has been gaining popularity in his New Avengers appearances). It's unfortunate that these aren't in a "classic" trade.The art is terrible (Liefeld), but it's also short on that stick as it focuses on his limited series, featuring then rising...

You get Deadpool's first appearance in New Mutants #1, his first two mini-series, and the first issue of the classic Joe Kelly run. Good stuff. Sure, it skips a few of his X-Force appearances, but those will probably end up in an X-Force Classic one of these days where they will work better anyway. Support this book so we can get the complete Joe Kelly run collected.
