Deadpool, and marriage
Deadpool (2015-) #29 - Gerry Duggan,Salvador Espin,Reilly Brown

I kinda knew it would implode.   If anything, I'm shocked that it lasted this long and that his wife didn't storm off, or try to kill him and then storm off, or storm off vowing to kill him.   I also think the whole Shiklah/Dracula idea was bullshit in the beginning, so I didn't like bringing him back.   

 

Overall, it was just funny, though, and I particularly enjoyed the banter between Deadpool and Spider-Man.  I wanted to write a longer review, but I very suddenly don't feel like writing that much about Marvel. 

 

Can I lose myself in Vision, in the days that weren't Secret Empire.

Losing steam on this
Deadpool The Duck (2017) #3 (of 5) - Stuart Moore,Jacopo Camagni,David Nakayama

Maybe it's just that I haven't read it for a while, but some of the charm rubbed off.   I laughed a lot, but I didn't find the conceit quite as hilarious as I did the first two issues. 

 

Also, I'm not sure how they're planning on keeping up this pace and wrapping it up within two issues, which frustrated me and took me out of the story, so I knocked off a star.

Loving this again!
Uncanny Avengers (2015-) #21 - Gerry Duggan,Kevin Libranda,Adam Kubert

So the thing is that I keep going 'eh' about this series, then loving it again.   I'm not sure why; I love Duggan's writing in general.   Not only that, this happened in Deadpool, but I understand why.  Deadpool, as a character, can be overwhelming, not only to the audience, but, I suspect, to the writers as well.   It explains why Way's run felt like it was treading water, and why Duggan's run could have been that - if he hadn't found the balance of the outrageousness, the social commentary allowed by breaking the fourth wall constantly, and the emotional aspect of Deadpool's new family. 

 

So I ended up loving this series, a Deadpool-centric Avengers, but.... it felt like it was losing it's way again.   And then it wasn't.  Now it isn't.  

 

It's got a strong emotionally resonant storyline with the Red Skull, and him fighting the X-Men and mutants once again.  But especially the X-Men who were trained by Xavier.   Even Deadpool is trying to save Rogue from killing the Red Skull. 

 

But that ending was so... logical.   Of course Rogue would do that instead.   After all, if Xavier's power is living in his brain, perhaps she think Xavier lives there still?   And even if not, simply having the Skull using Xavier's power itself was an insult to the man, a misuse of his power he would never have allowed if he were capable of fighting back at all. 

 

Even if they can't literally save Xavier, they can save his power from the dreadful corruption it's been put through, and well, Xavier was a father to many of the unwanted and cast out mutant children whom he sheltered, taught, and, yes, even loved as if they were his own children.   He is beloved - and of course the X-Men would never let this stand. 

 

The question is will anyone find them - and if they do, will they help, hinder, or even consider what Rogue is doing immoral or illegal.   Also, there's a question in my mind of if Cap will show up given that recent fuckery which makes me rage all over the place, because why, Marvel?

 

Still, I'm so super excited about this series again right now.

Everything comes together perfectly
Deadpool: Too Soon? Infinite Comic #8 (of 8) - Joshua Corin

The how, the why, and the fix all in this comic.   It's a massacre, and then somehow it's all alright.   I'm not quite sure I buy how easy it is, but I've had so much fun that even that being 'eh' about that aspect can't get me down about this enough to knock off even half a star.   I kind of knew halfway through this issue that it would be a little out there: either this wouldn't be fixed, and it would be completely AU, or it would be fixed and I'd probably side-eye it. 

 

Hilarious, and almost too trippy to be real, this series has been wonderful!  I've been anxious the past couple of days - most likely eager to get started with school has translated into nervousness about settling in - and this made me laugh and forget that all.   Lovely!

Shiklah explains why she's acting so weird
Deadpool: Too Soon? Infinite Comic #7 (of 8) - Joshua Corin

And by weird I mean like a hausfrau.   Which isn't weird in itself, but it is for her.   She knows who's been killing everyone - because he's been doing it for her!   It's a demonic dude who's trying to get her attention. 

 

Meanwhile, Squirrelpool not only returns, but she kidnaps her mommy and daddy - Squirrel Girl and Deadpool.   

 

More happened in this than in most, but the others have been funny enough and had enough hints as to what Deadpool should do that it's not a complaint.   Around six of eight is where everything seems to start to come together in this, so that seven and eight can both have fun and tie everything up. 

 

It's a good pacing for these series, so I'm glad to see they keep up with that, even with different authors.
