Deadpool (2019-) #7 by Kelly Thompson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Deadpool and Elsa Bloodstone are pretty much a perfect team…and adding Jeff the Shark just makes them even more perfect.
Is anyone else developing a crush on Elsa because I…I mean…Wade clearly is. I mean, he’s dreaming about smooching her and then getting eaten by a giant monster. Or was that a prophecy…? Yeah, we saw what you did there, Thompson, we ain’t as stupid as we look and we look REALLY stupid. Wait, no, that didn’t come out right…
Ok, so Sandoval is no Bachalo, but in my eyes nobody is Bachalo apart from Bachalo, who is pretty definitely Bachalo, you know? But Sandoval will do, I like the cut of his jib! By which I mean that I think he draws good. Or, rather. his art style very much suits this book. And, you know, we still get a lovely Bachalo cover, so we can still hold out some hope of him returning to the interior art on this book.
This issue, perhaps, felt more serious than previous issues, with less overt silliness…but that’s relative.
Overall, this issue, and this book as a whole, is great. You should probably be reading it, but then if you read everything I told you to you’d be reading a lot of books…because god only knows I am.
