5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Jan. 21 2011
By mkronck - Published on Amazon.com
Joe Kelly's run of the original Deadpool series ended back in 1999, and it isn't until 10 years later (2008) that they finally decided to start printing all of these issues in TPB format. I'm glad Marvel is finally recognizing the genius of this series, because it is an incredible one; one that I feel every die-hard comic book fan should experience at least once.

The issues in this volume are fantastic and really set up the storyline for the remainder of the Joe Kelly run. This volume covers #9-17, which are the first issues to really give you a glimpse into the inner horror and multiple layers that is Deadpool.

Up until issue #9, readers will have come to know Wade as a silly, smart-mouthed, funny, yet slightly psychotic sociopath/assassin. It isn't until his 2nd run-in with Typhoid Mary in issues 12-13 that we really start to peel back the layers of the Deadpool onion, and in addition to seeing a more dark and disturbed side to Wade, we also learn that he can be broken and manipulated by other people. Kelly explores Deadpool's feelings for Siryn (of X-Force) in depth and Wade's dependence on her for moral support and care. We also get a more in-depth look at the relationship between Deadpool and Blind Al, and the hilarious yet evil tricks they play on each other (and later, the conflict between them). Issue #14 is a jaw-dropper, as Deadpool finally snaps and you will witness a truly horrible side of him - one that will actually have you feeling sorry for Deadpool and feel bad for decisions he has made in regards to his friend Weasel and Blind Al. It is around this point in the series that I really begin to establish an emotional attachment to the story and to the events going on in Wade's life.

But Deadpool isn't all serious. Naturally, the series also has oodles of violence, witty dialogue, and humorous storylines. Not only is Wade's dialogue hilarious, but there are so many over-the-top situations that he finds himself in. There are some Deadpool issues that literally had me rolling on the ground laughing - definitely more than any other comic or book I've ever read. Issue #11 is the famous Amazing Spider-man throwback in which Wade and Blind Al replace Peter Parker and Aunt May in an old Spidey tale. Issue #9 is the funniest issue for me, as Wade finds himself in a deadly trap in which he is made to talk himself to death. These are great ones, but every issue has multiple funny moments scattered throughout, as Wade never really learns how to shut his mouth. Every now and then, the pop-culture references can be a little unfamiliar and outdated, however there exist online guides to ALL of the pop-culture references in the comics; you can find them easily online. Most people will know most of them, however, a lack of understanding these does not detract from the story or humor at all.

We are treated to one issue by artist Ed McGuinness, followed by Denton and Woods, who all draw in a very cartoony style. Issue #14 is where we see Walter McDaniel begin doing the art. McDaniel's art is awesome, to say the least, and really sets the mood for more serious and epic battles to come (as we learn more about Wade's Universe-saving destiny over the next 15-20 issues).

Know that I am probably a biased reviewer, as I am of the firm belief that Joe Kelly's run on Deadpool is the best run of all time in all of comics. Though I've read thousands of comic books, my opinion is not absolute, and may most certainly be different than yours. But I will say that I have found incredible depth in Joe Kelly's run as well as humor, heroism, pop-culture references, moments of complete hilarity, and mindless violence. These issues are jam-packed with content. Each issue is an mini-adventure - don't expect a quick read. You really have to allow yourself to be immersed in the story to really get the full package deal.

Having said that, even if you are a newbie Deadpool fan, this series will not disappoint. I have read the complete Joe Kelly run multiple times over, and I still laugh, I still ride the emotional roller coaster that is Deadpool, I still feel the shock-value of the tense moments, and I still get giddy at the humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars "With great power comes great coincidence" Nov. 14 2012
By BlueStar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Covering issues #9-17 of Joe Kelly's famous Deadpool run and a throwback to the classic Amazing Spider-Man #47 for referencing purposes, this third installment of the Classic series jumps right in on the action. Wade has a run-in with the oddball team "The Lightning Rods" but not before defeated the just-as-odd Deathtrap at his own game! Then, after a wonderfully-wrong teleporter malfunction, Deadpool and Blind Al are tossed into a 60s Spider-Man comic and, without completely $*@^ing up the timeline, Deadpool must pretend to be the nerdy Peter Parker and get back to the present with his Aunt May look-alike before anyone finds out! Then, back in present-day, he has a showdown with T-Ray that leaves him broken, physically and mentally and Typhoid Mary and the severe lack of Siryn make it all worse! Finally, Deadpool finds he's the chosen one and is taken to a secret lair within LL&L to fulfill his destiny!

These issues all make for some really good reading and Joe Kelly's writing shines here with some quirky crap that only Deadpool's pie-hole can spew. McGuinness and Denton start off the book with their art that we all know and love and Pete Woods continuing and the genius behind the Romita-clone Spider-Man issue! McDaniel also contributes in a more realistic tone that works well for the later issues. There's also the original Spider-Man issue thrown in to catch newer readers up on the issue 11 references. Issue 11 in particular was done very well as to copy the look Romita had to make it look like Deadpool really was in the 60s fighting Kraven! Overall, this was a nice collection of issues and the Spider-Man issue made it all that much better! Definitely one to get!

This is where you begin to see the artwork we all (well, mostly me), know and love about Deadpool. Vol. 3 is where this collection really starts to pick up. You will want the next piece as soon as possible.

Speaking of, time to order Vol. 4...
