I'm a sucker for a good bit of meta-fiction, and this takes the more fourth wall breaking aspects of Deadpool and turns them up to eleven. It's a mindless, bloody gorefest but I loved the commentary on Marvel comics and the nature of the characters.

Review by

I've always been a fan of the idea of Deadpool, a quick-witted, sarcastic, brutally violent assassin that walks the line between hero and villain and seems to be the only character in the Marvel universe who is actually AWARE of the fact that he's in a comic book. Unfortunately, Deadpool is rarely featured in self-contained trade paperbacks, so I've never really read much featuring him.<br/><br/>Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe is my first Deadpool-focused comic, and I loved it. The premise is simple, a mysterious force gets inside Deadpools mind and convinces him to go on a murdering spree of everyone in the Marvel continuity, including characters who normally exist outside of the main universe. He's funny and sympathetic even as he's murdering fan-favorites. <br/><br/>The book is a little light on substance, much of the panels are just devoted to graphically showing Deadpool killing people and general mayhem, and there's not much in the way of stakes since this is clearly presented as a "what if" type book (a premise that is actually played with quite a bit given Deadpool's 4th-wall-breaking persona). Still, it's a really fun read, watching Wade outsmart everyone in the Marvel universe and figure out ways to kill the unkillable. <br/><br/>I recommend this for anyone who wants to read themselves some Deadpool, though given the mind-altering influence he's under, it may not be the best introduction to character.
