Deadpool (2019-) #10 by Kelly Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wait…what? This is the last issue? Say it ain’t so…
“But it is so.”
Aww, dammit. This was good. This was really good. People need to get on the Kelly Thompson train because I’m tired of reading series written by her that prominently feature Jeff the Landshark and then get cancelled far too soon. West Coast Avengers was amazing, this was amazing…it’s just not fair. *whines*
Seriously, though, Jeff just got an action figure!
And then they go and make this a King In Black tie in which completely ruins Thompson’s plans for the final issue…but at least she gets to have Deadpool complain about it. But, really, why make this a tie in if there’s literally no point to the sales boost that would bring? I’ve already seen people say they checked this issue out purely for the King In Black tie in and thought it was awesome. Well…now they can’t stick around for more even if they wanted to.
Anyway, Thompson and Sandoval do the best they can under the circumstances, and this book gets five stars because of that. The fact that they managed to forge a satisfying and amusing end to the book despite everything working against that is a huge credit to them.
What’s next for Thompson? I’ll have to do some Googling. But personally I’d like to see her write a Gwenpool ongoing. At least she could have Deadpool give Jeff back so we can keep up with his adventures…
