Good then straight up garbage. May 31 2012
By john doe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I would have Given this Book a 3.5 or 4 star rating if it wasn't for the second story of the book. The only reason i bought this was because of Deadpool (and this should be the case if your considering purchasing this book).
The Deadpool story is fun and what you expect from a Deadpool story, with him trying to cash in on the pandemonium of the fear itself event by coming up with a convoluted scheme that ultimately blows up in his face. The jokes are fun and the story plays out in true Deadpool fashion. The only problem is, although there is plenty of comedy,there is very little action, and unlike most Deadpool arcs that end with either alot of comedy or action (or both) this one just kind of ends with probably the funniest line in the book and just ends rushed and unsatisfactory. If the book was just about Deadpool with maybe some bonus art in the back and a slightly cheaper price tag i would defiantly recommend this book.
Unfortunately after Deadpool you are treated to the sloppy mess known as the fearsome four. The story had potential with its main plot of Manthing going crazy because of all the fear being pumped out by fear itself and its up to Howard the duck and (for some reason) the rest of the fearsome four to stop him. Unfortunately the story fails on every level. The main characters are rated in the following way Meh,ok,Who?,and Why/WTF. The first character is howard the duck(Meh) who's bummed because his friend Manthing is going crazy and he has to stop him. The 2nd is she hulk(ok) who is for some reason the only superhero in New York who is concerned about Manthing going on a rampage. Then there's Nighthawk(Who?) who do's such a bad Batman rip off he makes George Clooney look like he nailed the character in comparison. Oh and Frankenstein's monster shows up for some reason (why/WTF). They all get together for no reason explained and call themselves the Fearsome Four, also not explained. The story then degenerates into a mess of the characters whining about fear, plot points that come out far from left field, action so confusing and boring it makes Street fighter: the legend of Chun Li look like a master piece, probably the most poorly/laziest named super weapon makes a appearance, and then it ends with the biggest "Huh? What did i just read?" ending in comics.
Only buy this book for the Deadpool story, and i recommend if you do decide to buy it buy it cheap and used, then stop reading immediately after Deadpool unless you want to suffer a brain aneurysm from the sheer mess that follows.
This was a pretty good read Aug. 19 2014
By Devin De Marco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was a pretty good read. I bought it because I'm a fan of Chris Hastings' webcomic Dr. McNinja, and I was curious to see what he would do with Deadpool. I wasn't disappointed -- it was one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. Fans of Deadpool and Dr. McNinja alike will love it.

The Fearsome Four half of the volume was alright at best. The story was a bit too overblown for the short amount of space it was given, and the more serious tone is very jarring after reading the strictly-comedy Deadpool section. It's not bad, but it's not as good as the Deadpool half. Thankfully, the Deadpool story is good enough to justify the purchase.
Great book March 4 2014
By Tesoe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Fantastic book. The first story is a great Deadpool piece focusing on the story and funny, from the writer of Dr. McNinja even. The second story is a kinda psychedelic trip featuring Howard the Duck trying desperately to save his buddy Man-Thing. Its a real uphill battle for a character that has no powers at all.

Great then second story not so great April 13 2012
By Longevity cow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This graphic novel has two stories in it, deadpool and the fearsome four. I gotta admit the first story (deadpool) is really halarious and its more adventurous then for the marvel crossover fear itself. I mean it didn't really focus on the crossover fear itself. Other then that i like it. But the second storie (fearsome four) is pretty disapointing and boring. The only part I like is when it showed Howard the duck. Other then that, it is really bad. Especially when it kept blabbering about conquering their fears which was really boring. I know I said I like the part when it showed howard the duck but he kept talking and talking about conquering your fears which really kinda bores you and it's also really really emotional which reminds me of anime shows. Also the the artwork of the second storie (fearsome four) is good then somehow a whole different reality of art style just appears somewhere in the pages and then the art style just wanders off and back to its original style. I mean without Howard the duck and deadpool, this book wouldn't be worth buying for.
