Why Did I Read Deadpool by Daniel Way: The Complete Collection – Volume 1?
I can’t remember what movie I went to watch, but I ended up seeing a preview for Deadpool back in the summer. I’ve never been a huge superhero movie fan, but I’ve seen a lot of them with my boyfriend. For the first time, I was genuinely excited to go watch a superhero film after seeing the trailer. Deadpool was hilarious with his sarcastic humor and the music was great. In preparation for the film, I decided to get some much needed background knowledge on Deadpool. I had never read comics before and only watched recent Marvel movies. I accomplished this by purchasing Deadpool by Daniel Way: The Complete Collection – Volume 1. Based on my online research, Daniel Way’s run is recommended for anyone beginning to read Deadpool.
What’s Deadpool by Daniel Way: The Complete Collection – Volume 1 About?
Deadpool is about the “Merc with a Mouth.” This collection includes: Wolverine: Origins 21-25, Deadpool (2008) 1-12, Thunderbolts 130-131 and Deadpool Saga. The collection starts with Deadpool being contracted to kill Wolverine. If you’re like me and don’t know anything about Wolverine, he can regenerate any wound in minutes, similarly to Deadpool. This makes for some intense, crazy fights between the two before a surprise guest arrives. After the conclusion of the Wolverine arc, we get to see Deadpool really come into action with the Super-Skrulls, engineered to match Deadpool’s unique regeneration abilities. Why is Deadpool seemingly helping the Skrulls invade Earth? Why does he then start an attack on the Avengers Tower? Lastly, we get to learn about Deadpool and Bullseye’s childhood school days. Basically, Volume 1 is just setting the character that is the Merc with a Mouth.
How is Deadpool as a Character?
I loved learning about Deadpool and getting to know his personality. He constantly talks and argues with himself and it’s probably one of the funniest books I’ve read. What I really enjoy about him is how hard it is to tell whether he is a hero or a villain. He walks that line and let me tell you, he really walks it. It’s a refreshing break from ultra heroes that can never do any harm. Deadpool wants money and he doesn’t really care how he gets it as long as he doesn’t have to kill an innocent person in the process. His sarcasm and humor is actually funny. I found myself laughing at his thoughts and actions throughout the volume.
Who Would I Recommend Deadpool To?
- Anyone looking to get more background on the Merc with a Mouth
- People who are looking to get into comics but don’t know where to start
- Whoever enjoys sarcastic anti-heroes
How’s The Illustration?
I really enjoyed the artwork in this volume. It stayed consistent throughout and the colors were gorgeous. Even though Deadpool has had many runs and been out for years, I didn’t feel like I was reading an ancient comic book. The art is refreshing and easy to look at.
