Review: ‘Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe’ #2

Deadpool_Kills_the_Marvel_Universe_Vol_1_2_Textless

This alternate universe is so outrageous, and I don’t think its possible not enjoy watching a wise-cracking assassin slaughter all your favourite heroes, villains and anti-heroes. The pace is non-stop go, go, go with a hefty amount of gruesome gore to add to absurdity. Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Daliber Talajić hit the nail on the head with issue #2 of ‘Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe’.

WRITTEN BY: Cullen Bunn
ART BY: Daliber Talajić
PUBLISHER: Marvel
RELEASE: August 8th

Based on the title of the miniseries, it’s not hard to guess where this would be going. This ish kicks off with an epic air duel with Spiderman before Deadpool winds’ up splattering on the pavement; thankfully he’s got that old reliable healing factor. The story continues at a break-neck speed as Deadpool takes down hero after hero. I think pretty soon Deadpool will have to make a jump over to DC because he’s going to run out of targets!

The story itself is, oddly, not that insane; with a new voice in his head, Deadpool becomes unstoppable. Unbeknownst to Deadpool, however, our favourite heroes are gathering to the call of Aunt May, and it seems they’ll stop at nothing to get revenge. Aside from the killing, I love this book for several reasons. First, it features the most well-known characters in the comic book world, which makes it easy to follow without having to look them up online. Second, the tale itself is just pure fun. From time to time there are books that axe a hero or two, but never all of them!

The artwork fits Bunn’s writing perfectly, and Talajić really knows how to draw Deadpool. The gore goes without mention, gushing blood, and dismemberment, it’s a beautiful thing.

This book is action packed, fast paced and an all round fun read. There’s never a dull moment because everything is right out in the open. Some people love Deadpool, others hate on him, however, this is a book I think any comic fan will thoroughly enjoy.

4/5 Skulls
