Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol. 2
Monsters, magic, merriment, movie-making and more! When Deadpool goes Hollywood, he's sure to bring his wall-crawling bud along for the ride - after all, Spidey is no stranger to selling out! In the proud DP tradition, a 'lost' issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN flashes us back to one of our pun-happy pair's earliest meetings! Then, Spidey and Deadpool meet Pen and Teller, for reals, in a tale penned by Penn himself! When both our heroes are alone for the holidays, that means they're the only ones who can save Christmas! And when another of those crazy events rocks the Marvel Universe, the web-slinger uses all his powers (and responsibilities) to fight the Monsters Unleashed - while Deadpool is about as helpful as he usually is. It's the team-up series where anything can happen - and does! Collecting SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #6-7, #11-12 and #1.MU.

Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol. 2 Review

    2.5 stars. This is a book made up of all of the filler guest writer/artist stories for this series. It was a huge let down, for the most part. We start with Scott Auckerman's which was just boring when he wasn't elbowing me to laugh at his jokes. Deadpool finds out a film studio wants to make a movie about him so Spidey and Deadpool headed to set. This was full of overdone jokes about the comic book film genre. Including some poorly thought out jokes about Batman v Superman. You can't poke fun a 2.5 stars. This is a book made up of all of the filler guest writer/artist stories for this series. It was a huge let down, for the most part. We start with Scott Auckerman's which was just boring when he wasn't elbowing me to laugh at his jokes. Deadpool finds out a film studio wants to make a movie about him so Spidey and Deadpool headed to set. This was full of overdone jokes about the comic book film genre. Including some poorly thought out jokes about Batman v Superman. You can't poke fun at DC for foreshadowing the next 8 films in their line up when Marvel does the exact same thing. They've been foreshadowing Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet since the Avengers. The next issue was okay. Gerry Duggan returns to Deadpool to play with a lost issue (?) of Spider-Man. What makes it meh is that the plot is 't really interesting. Even Deadpool's not enough to elevate this issue about Mysterio. It just reminded me of that filler throwback issue in Duggan's series that he actually managed to tie in to the main book. It reminded me how great that run of Deadpool was and how much I'd rather just reread that, right now. The next one was pointless. It was guest writer Penn Jillete and I don't know if this guy has written comics before but nothing about this entertained me. Deadpool wasn't that humorous, the plot was boring. The 4th wall breaking was okay, I guess. Teller was pointless (I know that's the joke but is it funny when the rest of the issue is pointless too?). Not memorable and I'm sad I paid money for it. The last 2 are better. If the rest of this was more like the last 2 issues, this rating would be a little higher. There's a Saturn god story where Spidey and Deadpool try to teach him the meaning of Christmas. This was the first time in the book that I actually laughed out loud! The jokes land. The chemistry between Spidey and Deadpool is back! Overall, a great Christmas issue. The last is a Monster Unleashed tie in. This one was pretty great as well. Heartmates!! Spidey and Deadpool aren't often in the same place during this one but the chemistry is still there. Pretty solid issue. All in all, this book is a disappointment. It's all filler issues and I'm peeved Marvel decided to group these together at all. It was a major waste of time if you wanted to follow up on the major arc but I suppose this way, you don't have to get more upset by stopping every few issues for a filler that's not even that satisfying. 2.5 stars.
