Deadpool: Classic Vol. 1

There has been a LOT of hype recently around Deadpool, and I love it! Obviously Ryan Reynolds killing his performance in the feature film Deadpool has been the direct catalyst for much of this buzz. For plenty of us who loved Deadpool well before the movie you will certainly enjoy this collection of Deadpool as this novel collects all of Deadpool’s first appearances in order. Deadpool is widely known as the character with the ability to break the “4th wall/dimension providing much comic relief and whacky instances of instigated turmoil on both sides just for the fun of it. Because of all this Deadpool makes for one of the most entertaining characters around the Marvel universe. However, he wasn’t always this way, so as I said, this novel, being a compilation of his first appearances, will  be a wonderful insight to his image early on in the begining stages of his development. You all  should love Deadpool Classics Vol. 1!
