Meanwhile, Agent Preston is STILL in Deadpool ’ s head and Brian Posehn/Gerry Duggan are still doing the “ fake old Marvel comics starring Deadpool ” schtick.
Oh, and the script is full of puns galore because they ’ re so darn funny… The worst part of this series happened in the first volume, the after-effects of which are still being felt here, which was: Duggan/Posehn tried to make Deadpool into a real character.
That gimmick was fresh in the third volume when Deadpool went back to Iron Man ’ s Minion in a Bottle storyline and wreaked havoc, but every time Duggan/Posehn have gone back to the well with this concep, it ’ s been increasingly unfunny and dull.
It ’ s like reading a comic scripted by Kevin Anderso and Colin Hunt ( Charlie Higson ’ s Fast Show character – check him out on outube!).
It ’ s strange though that in a Deadpool comic the funniest parts belong to unnamed side characters.
Deadpool Vs SHIELD is more of a wrap-up volume of storylines that ’ ve been going on since the series began, so if you ’ re jumping in at this point, a lot of stuff ’ s not going to make sense!
