The Philosophy of Deadpool
Until fairly recently, Deadpool was a hilarious anarchic force roaming the pages of comic books. But after two wildly successful Hollywood movies, the Merc with a Mouth suddenly has a brand-new fanbase to introduce to his insane adventures. Whether he’s battling undead presidents, killing off the entire Marvel Universe, or teaming up with Thanos to save Death (who they’re both in love with, by the way), a casual Google search or a stroll through the comic shop barely scratches the surface of Deadpool’s wholly unique pantheon of stories.
The Philosophy of Deadpool strives to encapsulate all things Deadpool, offering numerous glimpses of him teaming up with famous heroes, tossing out witty observations, and causing havoc in all sorts of inexplicable situations. Although the book doesn’t linger long enough on any of these scenes to be truly satisfying (a taste or a hint is all you get, with many important characters not even being named), it does pique the reader’s interest, whether they’re a die-hard Deadpool fan or a newcomer to the madman’s comic book endeavors.
Essentially, this is a scrapbook, a highlight reel of Deadpool’s peaks and valleys. It’s a good jumping off point, to be sure, but it serves more as a hit-and-run retrospective than as something more substantial.
