    Two fill in teams come in and give us a couple of pretty good 2 part stories First up is a team up with Slapstick which is a perfect fit for this book Robson s art is a cross between Ed McGuiness and Terry Dodson It s quite good for someone I wasn t familiar with Then we head to Murderworld I like when Marvel returns to classic stories and villains like Arcade Elliot Calan keeps this one fresh with veteran artist Todd Nauck in tow.

    Since Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness have moved on, Spider Man Deadpool is in that weird little flux period between solid creative teams, so these four issues are split between four creators in two two issue stories instead And they re pretty good, to be honest.The first two issues by Joshua Corin and Will Robson have Spideypool and Slapstick teaming up to stop a drug lord and a property baron while swearing off jokes although this plot point doesn t last much past the amusing One More Day parody Since Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness have moved on, Spider Man Deadpool is in that weird little flux period between solid creative teams, so these four issues are split between four creators in two two issue stories instead And they re pretty good, to be honest.The first two issues by Joshua Corin and Will Robson have Spideypool and Slapstick teaming up to stop a drug lord and a property baron while swearing off jokes although this plot point doesn t last much past the amusing One More Day parody cover These issues show a good understanding of Spidey and Wade as characters, and there s just enough Slapstick for him to not get grating, although the repeated dingus joke gets old very fast Robson s art is like a cross between McGuinness and Mike McKone always a good thing, and he gets physical humour very well.The second two issues are by Elliott Kalan and Todd Nauck, and these are the better of the two stories as Spidey and Deadpool find their way into Murderworld The side characters in these issues are such giant caricatures of the way the world is now, it hurts, and Kalan s script for both Spidey and Deadpool hits all the right notes There s an especially heartfelt part for Deadpool that gets lost in all the hubbub that I really liked Todd Nauck is an industry veteran at this point, and his art definitely proves why he can do humour, he can do giant robots, he can do dinosaurs, and he can do superheroes something fierce.I ll be fair, I didn t like the Kelly McGuinness run as much as I feel I should have, and I especially didn t like all the random crap in Volume 2 of this series, but these four issues aren t bad They won t set the world on fire or redefine comics, but they made me laugh, and I ll take that any day.Now roll on Robbie Thompson Chris Bachalo, because I think that s going to be great

    MUCH BETTER, thank you I would not have even given this a second glance if it weren t for Goodreads The brilliant comic book Goodreads readers that I follow said this was better than the last, which is the only reason I gave this a shot after the shit storm that was Vol 3 it shall not be named.I didn t love the Madripoor Murderworld storyline and I didn t love the art , which is why this vol gets 3 3.5 stars on the whole The Murderworld storyline only gets points for the hilarious endin MUCH BETTER, thank you I would not have even given this a second glance if it weren t for Goodreads The brilliant comic book Goodreads readers that I follow said this was better than the last, which is the only reason I gave this a shot after the shit storm that was Vol 3 it shall not be named.I didn t love the Madripoor Murderworld storyline and I didn t love the art , which is why this vol gets 3 3.5 stars on the whole The Murderworld storyline only gets points for the hilarious ending where Spidey and Deadpool drop off Arcade at Cyclops s doorstep and there are a few hilarious lines, cause, you know, time travel Mostly, I was all about the first half of the volume No Laughing Matter The issues were fun, the art was my style, and the quips were funny and made me smile Issue 19 starts off with Spider Man being max Spider Man and trying to be super serious about his responsibility as a hero His heroing has hurt people, and onw by taking himself super seriously, he s going to be a better Spider Man And then along comes Deadpool The interactions between Deadpool and Spider Man are well written, funny, and so in character The arch was super redeeming for the series, even if Slapstick mentions that he has no dingus about five times Even so

    a nice rebound from the horrid 3rd volume, but still not up to the earlier standards of the series.

    This was a silly one Time to play this game the only way I know how By kicking over the board and letting someone else clean up the pieces

    3 1 2 Stars So did you have any idea that Spider Man Deadpool was still running Because I didn t I honestly thought the third volume said it was the last for now Apparently that for now was a pretty quick span of time, because I got behind in the series faster than I realize On the bright side I love this team up, so I m happy to haveof them The downside is that Joe Kelly Deadpool, Daredevil, Uncanny X Men, Action Comics, Spider Man and Ed McGuinness Superman, Deadpool, Hulk, 3 1 2 Stars So did you have any idea that Spider Man Deadpool was still running Because I didn t I honestly thought the third volume said it was the last for now Apparently that for now was a pretty quick span of time, because I got behind in the series faster than I realize On the bright side I love this team up, so I m happy to haveof them The downside is that Joe Kelly Deadpool, Daredevil, Uncanny X Men, Action Comics, Spider Man and Ed McGuinness Superman, Deadpool, Hulk, Nova aren t on the project any, which is such a loss for this pairing Spider Man and Deadpool both have the propensity for humor and banter, but their temperaments and ways of dealing with enemies are polar opposites It s what makes them such a funny team up I personally believe that the team up brings out the best in both of the characters Around Deadpool Spider Man is able to let loose a bithis tragic backstory becomesa fact of his past then a ruling reason for his present On the flip side Spider Man makes Deadpool want to be a better hero Around him Deadpool is less likely to inflict wonton destruction and actively tries to not kill people you know, as opposed to what he usually does Their constant clashing of heads can be quite humorous at times, depending on the situation view spoiler So imagine my surprise and joy when I learned that there was another Spider Man Deadpool volume out on the shelves I may have made a tiny mistake of letting myself get super excited for it, once I spotted it As everyone knows that usually isn t a safe idea unless you know that the creative team hasn t been swapped out which is what happened here It was still a decent read, but it lost some of the shine that the earlier volumes seemed to have There are two main plots for this volume, and I think I may have ended up liking the first onethough that s likely because I ve never been terribly impressed with the antagonist they pulled for the second half I also think the humor was sharper for the first half The first plot involves multiple slapstick characters no pun intended all trying to get the same bit of evidence Though for different people, as it turns out The ensuing mess is pretty hilarious as well as tense Oh and did I mention that Spider Man decided they have to cut the banter out He s come to the conclusion that because of the collateral damage the occasionally cause it s inappropriate to be cracking jokes all the time Right Good luck reigning Deadpool in on that one The second plot is a bitforced, in my opinion They took a couple jokes that should have been quick gags and forced them into this running joke bit, and it just becomes overbearing at a certain point The whole plot takes place in Murderworld, which should really be like a playground for Deadpool and it kind of is, but not to the extent I would have liked to see While I was a bit disappointed by this volume, I refused to give up on my favorite team up of all time is it sad that they re absolutely one of my favorites Hopefully they get a stable creative team to take over in theory that should help remove some of the wrinkles I saw in this volume hide spoiler Forreviews, check out Quirky Cat s Fat Stacks

    The character dynamics between these two always make for some entertaining stories.The greatest problem I m finding with this series is the lack of commitment to any one storyline There have been a couple long form plots, intermixed with episodic adventures And with each volume, the story focus and tone seem to shift While each volume on its own has proven entertaining, the series as a whole suffers from the unpredictability.There are two story arcs here, unconnected from each other For me, The character dynamics between these two always make for some entertaining stories.The greatest problem I m finding with this series is the lack of commitment to any one storyline There have been a couple long form plots, intermixed with episodic adventures And with each volume, the story focus and tone seem to shift While each volume on its own has proven entertaining, the series as a whole suffers from the unpredictability.There are two story arcs here, unconnected from each other For me, the first wasenjoyable However, both offer their share of laughs and adventure in a fashion to be expected from a Spider Man Deadpool team up.As entertaining as volume 4 proved to be, there really isn t enough here to make it stand out after the last page So, it s ultimately a good way to pass an hour, but doesn t offer much beyond that

    A thoroughly funny read I laughed out loud multiple times, especially in the No Laughing Matter storyline The second one, with Murder World, was good, too, but the first one really had me chuckling There were a lot of creative one liners and the idea of Spidey and Deadpool trying to give up quips was a simple, but funny thread to tie the story together Some of the jokes in the other two issues were a little too political for my taste, but the overall story was solid This volume also reall A thoroughly funny read I laughed out loud multiple times, especially in the No Laughing Matter storyline The second one, with Murder World, was good, too, but the first one really had me chuckling There were a lot of creative one liners and the idea of Spidey and Deadpool trying to give up quips was a simple, but funny thread to tie the story together Some of the jokes in the other two issues were a little too political for my taste, but the overall story was solid This volume also really took full advantage of the Spidey Deadpool foil do the right thing v over the top violence But Deadpool s respect for Spidey and his attempts to do better, coupled with both characters humor, really makes for fun and memorable team ups
