The Merc with a Mouth

So, I've been drinking (who would've thought?), and I've been reading, too. Today—or rather, yesterday if you wanna get technical—I read a year’s worth of Deadpool comics. Don’t ask how I acquired them. That’s not important.

Mel and Robert have been talking about how cool Deadpool is, and I had to check him out for myself. I have to say he’s pretty damn cool… and pretty damn crazy. Schizophrenia ftw!

The only thing that bothers me is that now I’m a tad bit hooked, and I’m gonna have to find a way to get my grubby hands on all the previous issues to see where Deadpool came from and where’s he’s been. I’ve read the online bios, but that is NOT enough.

Sometimes, it’s easy to come across a collection of comics of a singular character or group of characters. However, that character/group will usually have crossovers, and I’m just OCD enough to want those as well. There’s the snag to the whole ordeal. That’s the most bothersome part from my experience of collecting comic books.

Anyway, I encourage most to check out Deadpool. I don’t say “all” because sometimes (a lotta times) he gets quite violent as mercenaries (I assume) are wont to do. Still, though, it was a fun (and funny!) read.
