Admittedly, this is my first graphic novel so I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. Honestly, after the torrid high school adventures I just went through with the last 4 books, this was a welcomed change. It was interesting reading something and having visual content as opposed to using my imagination with text. It’s really nice vacation for your brain, not as much work on your imagination but yet still visually stimulating.
There are different parts of the story itself, 2 secret invasions if you will. The first part involves aliens and the second involves zombies so if you’re not into science fiction don’t bother. Both story lines caught my attention and kept me reading. They also both had a “To Be Continued…” (as comics do) and actually has me curious. It is not a predictable story, for sure.
Something I didn’t know that I thought was an amazing character feature, is the reason Deadpool has regenerative abilities. He is actually a failed cancer research patient and the only reason he is still alive is because the regenerative properties are actually fighting off the cancer cells. So as he’s dying, his super power is keeping him alive, in combat and in health.
Unfortunately, since Ryan Reynolds will be playing Deadpool in the movie soon, I could only hear his voice. Fortunately, it was a voice I enjoy.
Overall: 4 of 5 stars. It definitely made me want to pick up the next volume.
It’s 12:30a here and I’m waiting for my baby to wake up so this is a slightly incoherent post.
