Soul Hunter starts with a crack about having to run an old comic issue from the past, and proceeds to present an entire comic book from the 60's, complete with the bad coloring, the cheesy dialogue, and everything. It absolutely looks like an old comic book, but with Deadpool making modern references occasionally. <br/><br/>Here, he's tasked with a very Ghost-Rider-esque job of hunting down some folks who sold their soul to the devil in order for special powers. The special powers each make it difficult for Deadpool to assassinate his target, which is where the fun comes from. One thing that's really neat is just how much insight you get into the Deadpool character, with another character whose soul has been transplanted into his brain (he's trying to find a way to get her out). You really see how crazy Deadpool is, and he also has lots of moments where he's a complete bastard as well as moments where he's a kind-hearted person deep down. It perfectly captures the essence of the character.<br/><br/>Funny and engaging throughout, this may well be one of the best deadpool arcs out there. I only knocked a star off because Deadpool temporarily teams up with Spider-man, and it's the Superior version where it's actually Dr. Octopus in Peter Parker's body. I completely hate that shit, so I can't rate any book that cameos him as pefect.
