HASH(0x9dd0990c) out of 5 stars Not meant to be in continuity Dec 7 2012
By Mellow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wade Wilson's War is not meant to be in continuity so disregard Cory Kerr"s review, it is set in a more realistic world apparently without superpowers. Deadpool is brought to a senate hearing after his team consisting of himself, Domino, Bullseye, and Silver Sable massacre a cartel and several civilians in Mexico. The story is exactly what a Deadpool comic should have, the art was decent, and it has Dogpool pooping out a bomb.It's worth the read for any Deadpool fan.

HASH(0x9d9cf048) out of 5 stars Not Quite Deadpool's Best, But Still Great! Dec 30 2011
By Sondra L Castellani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wade Wilson's War tells the story of how Deadpool (Wade Wilson) came to be through a series of flashbacks. The twist, the story is told from two different perspectives and it is up to the reader to decide which story is the truth. Could it be the over-the-top patriotic story told by Deadpool himself, or the more believable story from the company that made him the super human he is today. This is a must read for fans of Deadpool.

HASH(0x9e1ee87c) out of 5 stars A look into Deadpool May 7 2015
By Clay R. Haase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War, written by Duane Swierczynski (the writer of '2 Past Midnight') and illustrated by Jason Pearson, is a non-continuity story from the Marvel Knight’s imprint. And, following the imprint’s characteristic boiling down of a character down to his or her nature, this comic does exactly that. Want answers about Deadpool? Such as why he uses his red and black mask and why he even uses ‘Deadpool’ as a name? Whether his teammates really were given the names ‘Bullseye’, ‘Domino’, and ‘Silver Sable’? This comic gives just exactly that, and in the purest Deadpool fashion.

The story itself follows Deadpool going before the senate to talk about a massacre in Mexico he is thought to have been a part of, as well as being the only thought survivor of the event. There, he talks about having been a part of a super-secret government programme that gave him his regenerative powers together with his teammates, Bullseye, Silver Sable, and Domino. He talks about his childhood, time at the army, and the experiments to cure the cancer he was diagnosed with. He talks about the past missions he was sent to. All in all, all of his character story and past.

But is this really the truth and all there is to the story? In the truest character of Deadpool, this isn’t all there is to the story, and it is exactly what makes this comic stand out and gain interest. On the surface it seems just another utterly common plot with Deadpool-esque humour on top of it. Thankfully, this isn’t so, and ‘Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War’ goes straight to Deadpool’s nature. Though the story is a mess, if you look closely it all fits together in the most striking way, making this a definitely fun comic to read for any Deadpool fan.

This story is presented through a series of flashbacks presented from two different prespectives, and leaves it up to the reader to decide which one is the truth. Whether the over-the-top patriotic version told by Deadpool or the realistic one offered by the company which gave him his powers, ‘Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War’ combines supposed truths together expertly. Offering various versions of the same story without giving away any definitive answer about them, and though it doesn’t really manage to rise to any extraordinary level, it definitely isn’t bad. The art itself is good and reminiscent of past Deadpool comics, and holds true to them in a rather nostalgic way.

Would I then recommend ‘Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War’? Yes, but particularly to fans of the character who know previous things about it. Though this comic probably doesn’t work well as an introduction to Deadpool himself or people who don’t particularly like his character – there are better comics for that – this one certainly gives entertainment and offers a lot of introspection on the character in a very original way. Though it could have been presented in a very ‘normal’ way, the truth is left up to the reader to choose, and this is what definitely gives this comic an edge over other Deadpool-centred ones and made me enjoy it. It isn’t anything really extraordinary though, and if anything is a bit memorable instead. Though it will definitely be fun to read and will not leave you bored whilst you’re doing so.

HASH(0x9dbf14bc) out of 5 stars A look into Deadpool's true nature April 24 2011
By John Haslach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Many have criticized this book for not being in continuity with Deadpool, but that is because it is a non-continuity story. The art is good and reminiscent of Deadpool's past comics. The Marvel Knight's imprint is about boiling a character down to his or her nature and Deadpool's? He is pure insanity. Bonkers. Balls to the wall Insane. The story is a mess but if you look closely it all seems to fit together once you get to the end and we see who the narrator is.

HASH(0x9dd416e4) out of 5 stars Deadpool: Wade Wilsons War March 18 2015
By vince west - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Deadpool goes before the senate to talk about a massacre in Mexico he is thought to be a part of. He is thought to be only survivor. He talks about being part of super secret government group with teammates Bullseye, Silver Sable, and Domino. All thought dead at massacre. He explains his childhood with abusive dad and experiments to cure his cancer. Then a surprise witness Domino is alive in a wheelchair. She is not hurt half as bad as acting, helps Deadpool get free, and then Bullseye and Silver Sable help them escape and kill a few senators. So who knows how much of what Deadpool said was true or he made up? But it is a great story with A LOT of action.
