This arc starts with a desperate Deadpool needing money. He takes a “reward” gig tracking down a bankrobber named Sack, who has a bottomless sack for all his stolen money.
Deadpool quickly dispatches him by shoving the crook into his own sack.
Deadpool then takes a “for hire” gig to kill six mobsters who are all standing between a cop and his affair with an ex-FBI agent who is now a stripper.
Got all that?
There’s nothing really bad about that concept–it provides for the kind of twisty story that Jimmy Palmiotti is great at, but the whole thing still feels like a funeral…
…given that we’re coming off some truly brilliant Deadpool issues by Priest. The art is fine, but, like Palmiotti, Paul Chadwick simply pales in comparison to his predecessor. Chadwick is a wonderful artist–but he’s not at his best with Marvel superheroics. (Check out his creator-owned book Concrete.)
