The third of four issue of this final Deadpool Kills trilogy has finally arrived, and once again, the Progenator of All Things is the star assassin and the main target! This series has been utterly ridiculous but much better than the previous two installments, featuring a very obsessed Watcher, some pretty interesting types of Deadpool, and, of course, the deaths of countless crimson assassins.
All of that is just the beginning of the insanity that occurs in this issue, which is quickly coming to a head as EvilPool sets out to kill everyone and everything in an effort to kill each and every Deadpool in the multiverse in an attempt to stop the beings who created him from using him for their own entertainment. With alternate versions such as Galactipool, Pandapool, Wolvepool and more, this has been a fun and bloody trip through the multiverse that is finally hitting its final strides, something that is much needed for this trilogy of mini-series.
Writer Cullen Bunn hasn’t had the easiest time with this character and this series, but with this third series, he’s finally nailed it. It’s funny, action packed and utterly ridiculous. While the story is pretty simple, Bunn has managed to make it awesome in ways that are impossible to really describe. There is so much Deadpool in here that it’s almost overkill, but with so much going on in the multiverse, it’s very well explained.
Art team Salva Espin and Veronica Gandini do a great job here as well, with beautiful artwork and colors that reallypop, especially during the main action sequences and moments of real intensity. The character work is terrific, and given how many different types of character there are, the art team did a spectacular job in making each one not only accurate, but entertaining and varied. Great work to the entire art team, especially on the character design.
Summary: With all that’s been going on in the Deadpool universe, things seem to be coming to an end. There’s been a lot of really disappointing books in this trilogy (making up about twelve issues), but in te end, all has worked out, because this series, and this issue especially, have been ridiculous, hilarious, and very entertaining.
Pros: Great Artwork, Funny Dialog
Cons: Weak Plot
