Deadpool #900

Deadpool #900
CBR | Nov 2009 | 113 Pages | 60.3 MB
The "Merc With a Mouth" celebrates his 900th issue. Uhmm... 900? Not really. It's just that Deadpool became the recipient of the company's recent renumbering that's allowed to put some of their flagship titles in the triple digits--not because it is the correct ordinal sequence of issues but as an obvious in-joke, which is that given his exposure and ubiquitousness (guest appearances in almost all titles) he may have reached a milestone and should deserve the anniversary treatment. Aside from the attention-getting numbering, this issue may be a special one-shot, or maybe an annual. What it really is, is more or less an anthology of 7 odd--or weird--original Deadpool stories, most 4th-wall breaking, both plot and character-based, plus a reprint of Deadpool #1. And interestingly, the high quality is there. With some 104 pages sans ads, you get more than enough of the character somebody once said is like Wolverine, Spider-Man and the Joker all rolled into one.

Special SUPER-sized, ACTION-packed 104-page special to commemorate Deadpool’s historic 900th issue! … Wait, has it really been nine-hundred issues…? Who cares! If this collection of octane-infused stories by some of comics’ hottest talent doesn’t make you want to genuflect at the Altar of Wade, nothing will. Thrill as the Merc with a Mouth squares off against probe-happy aliens, trigger-happy mimes and one seriously unhappy fanman – and that’s just half the book! Wince as Wade bares his soul (and lots more) to a shrink who’s got major squirrels in his own attic. Thrill as he travels around the globe and then some to settle a childhood bet. And chill as C.S.I. investigators at a blood-splattered crime scene attempt to piece together why this particular “unsub” needed battery cables, Crisco oil, three stacks of adult magazines and a live chicken to pull off the hit.
