Next issue has a very road trip look to it, but before we get there, it’s time, despite the rather pointless Infinity banner for the Thunderbolts to finish off their mission for the Punisher.
I’m not going to say this has been the darkest chapter in Wade Wilson’s life, my Deadpool knowledge isn’t that all-encompassing, but for what I’ve read, this isn’t definitely the darkest depths.
It’s over. It sure is finally over. You know, except until about two and a half months from the time I’m writing this when it’s not. But maybe Night of the Living Deadpool’s will start a different plot thread, cause seriously, what else can really be done with multiverse-hopping after the Killogy. Or it won’t.
Here we go again. It’s been three weeks, must be time for me to be disappointed by Thundebolts again. As much as it pains me to admit, I don’t think this book stands much of a chance of being anything more than tolerable for the time being.
When I pick up a Deadpool comic, all I’m really expecting is to enjoy the action and be amused by the jokes. Well, Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan takes things just a little bit deeper this issue as they push Deadpool right up to the edge of a mental cliff.
Ultimate Comics X-Men #32 reads like yet another set-up issue. However, Brian Wood manages to move the pieces and prepare for one last battle that will determine the fate of the mutants in the Ultimate Marvel universe. Like in his current Star Wars comic, he cuts to a lot of different characters. However, each small storyline is a part of a bigger endgame and shows how characters like Kitty Pryde, Storm, and even Mach Two have changed over this run. Alvaro Martinez is on fire artistically this issue. He gets to draw a lot of action sequences and uses different panel structures when different characters are fighting. The art is the best part of this very good comic, whose only weakness is a last minute deus ex machina.
Here we go again. Another month, another round of “what’s wrong with Thunderbolts”. As often as I play this game, you’d think that I enjoyed it. I promise you, I really, really don’t. But, here we go anyway.
