REVIEW: Deadpool: Suicide Kings by Mike Benson, Sean Crystal, Carlo Barberi (Illustrations), Shawn Crystal (Illustrations)

Deadpool’s latest job has gotten him into a world of trouble. Everyone wants a piece of him – and for a crime he didn’t commit That’s right: Someone’s framed Deadpool, and it just might be the same guy who hired him in the first place, a guy who just might be using the mouthy merc as a wild card in a twisted wager. If Wade’s going to clear his name and serve up some revenge, he’s first got to avoid getting captured – or killed – by some of the Marvel Universe’s heaviest hitters: Daredevil, the Punisher, and Spider-Man. Plus, see what happens when Deadpool goes behind the scenes of “Pain Factor” – the reality TV game show so controversial, it’s been banned around the world Collects Deadpool: Suicide Kings #1-5 and Deadpool: Games of Death.

Deadpool: Suicide Kings was an alright read. It’s my first brush with Deadpool and I’ll probably read more about him but I get the feeling I’m going to think most of it is just alright. So you’re probably wondering why I would continue to read about him, right? Well, he’s an asshole. And for some reason he’s says just enough ridiculous stuff and offends just enough people for me to want to read more of his comics.

For those of you who haven’t read much about Deadpool I’m just going to let you know that you won’t learn a whole hell of a lot about him from this comic. Here is what I learned: he’s mouthy as crap, he regenerates, he’s ugly and therefore wears a mask, and he hears voices. I have no idea why he regenerates or if there is even a way to kill him. I also don’t know why he hears voices. Is he just nuts or was there something else involved that made him like that?
