Special SUPER-sized, ACTION-packed 104-page special to commemorate Deadpool's historic 900th issue! ... Wait, has it really been nine-hundred issues...? Who cares! If this collection of octane-infused stories by some of comics' hottest talent doesn't make you want to genuflect at the Altar of Wade, nothing will. Thrill as the Merc with a Mouth squares off against probe-happy aliens, trigger-happy mimes and one seriously unhappy fanman - and that's just half the book! Wince as Wade bares his soul (and lots more) to a shrink who's got major squirrels in his own attic. Thrill as he travels around the globe and then some to settle a childhood bet. And chill as C.S.I. investigators at a blood-splattered crime scene attempt to piece together why this particular "unsub" needed battery cables, Crisco oil, three stacks of adult magazines and a live chicken to pull off the hit.

BONUS REVIEW by JOHN ROBINSON
I love Deadpool. He's great.
I even loved the old 1990's series, I even read the Cable & Deadpool series even though I hate Cable.
That's how much I like Deadpool.
This comic though, this comic, well it sucks. First off, half the book is a reprint. So yeah, it's
nice and thick, but you're possibly paying that extra money for a comic you've already read.
Next up - every story is short, really short. They never hit their stride, the artwork on most every
story blows beyond belief. You'd think Marvel threw out any standards that had for accepting artwork.
It's like the 1990's all over again. Only they're ruining a character who's finally being recognised
as Marvel's most fun character. Not for long if this keeps up, and don't even get me started on
calling this comic Deadpool #900....argh...
I give it 2 out of 10 Grahams
