Is there no saving Deadpool? Did I just grow up?
Joe Kelly run had plenty of pop culture jokes. Epic chimichangas and "lmao soooo bored I'll shoot my brains out" started in Cable & Deadpool.
The only answer I've got is you're a dumb ass piece of shit who started out with the Way run until /co/ told you it's shit so now you're shitting on it and praising some comics you've never actually read.
tl;dr Kill yourself
This. The storytime of Spider-man/Deadpool made it abundantly clear that most of the people that spout how much they love Kelly's DP run have never actually read it and are just reiterating what they've heard others say on /co/.
SJW defendse force out in full force I see why don't you go back to your own site if 4chan triggers you so much lol. You're lucky you're on /co/mblr, you wouldn't last a day on one of the real bords.
I'm kind of amazed how many people pretend they've read Kelly's Deadpool run but obviously haven't or are very proud about misremembering him. With what fucking version of the character are they confusing it? Nicieza/Liefeld or just straight-up Deathstroke?
I feel like you are the one who didn't read Kelly's run. Yes there were jokes, there were goofy stuff, but it wasn't as over the top as the recent SM/DP and Kelly's run WASN'T RANDUMB
If anything, it's you who misremember Kelly's run
>right-wing all-american patriot protecting American border from Mexican illegals
>captures Mexican illegal trying to cross border
>Duggan draws scene to imply Right-Wing = ISIS
>Deadpool shows up, kills the patriot protecting our borders from invaders, quips, and saves the Mexican
Fuck off shill. How in the fuck is this not blatant SJW propoganda? You don't see DC pulling this shit yet Marvel does in every other comic.
I've re-read some of it pretty recently.
To be fair I haven't read the SM/DP issue beyond the preview, but the Deadpool movie threads were enough to convince me that most people who go "not muh Kelly" haven't read it.
The fuck is randumb anyway? Absurd jokes that don't hit?
it's a mix of random + dumb.
Kelly's run was a comedy, but it wasn't sitcom-tier.
If anything, Duggan & Posehn run was the real continuation of what Kelly did.
It's really sad what happened in first issue of SM/DP, and I won't lie, it really did read like something written by Way.
Nigga. The dude they cout was a scam artist claiming to be a tax man not a mexican. The faggots that had him were a retarded militia group trying to have Arizona suceed from the US.
You've proven yourself to be a reactionary retard. Fuck off.
I love how you completely gloss over the fact that Kelly's run was a great mix of comedy, some really dark moments, plus character development, and steady supporting cast. Keep cherrypicking.
>Absurd jokes that don't hit?
Usually "randumb" means unfunny non-sequitur where the fact that it's a non-sequitur is itself the joke, rather than anything actually funny about what the non-sequitur is. An example would be something like if Deadpool were to suddeny stab someone and scream "WAFFLE TACOS XD." In context, him screaming that doesn't make any sense or contribute to anything, and on its own, "waffle tacos" isn't a joke or humorous, it's just a silly food. The humor here is supposed to be derived merely from the fact that it doesn't make sense and comes out of nowhere. Hence, randumb, since it's random and dumb.
But there wasn't really any of that in Spider-man/Deadpool so I'm sure that anon is just meme'ing by complaining about shit without being able to articulate what he didn't like about it.
>Used to love Kelly-run
>Actually enjoyed the first issue of Spider-Man/Deadpool
I might be the only one, but I really don't see the problem here. It was funny and the art was pretty. (Of course I wasn't expecting any character-developement, since this book plays second fiddle to TWO other books)
I gloss over it because nobody claimed it wasn't dramatic or had no character development or didn't have a good supporting cast. Hell sitcoms have had those since the 90s aswell.
Might also note that pretty much none of that is present in Deadpool #1 (which consisted of Deadpool fighting Sasquatch over some nuclear reactor thing on a merc mission) so the entire run is not exactly a fair comparison to one issue of SM/DP.
I don't remember much of that "randumb" humor in Way either then. Only that he talked with himself/voices in his head which is why he sometimes said things apparently without context...to the other characters in the book. Not to the reader.
>where the fact that it's a non-sequitur is itself the joke, rather than anything actually funny about what the non-sequitur is
I'm pretty sure that's extremely rarely the intention compared to how many things are called "randumb".
OK, but all that stuff made some sense in-context. You can argue that it wasn't funny, and I'll give you that the morality app was pretty trite and Kelly overplayed the homo-jokes but it wasn't "lol randumb XD." It was just a couple lame jokes. The original Kelly run and his various ASM issues while he was a rotating artist were hardly filled with 10/10 bangers everytime either.
It's common in amateur writing and tends to be used by teenagers trying to be funny who have yet to understand the nuance behind jokes.
But, like "mary sue" and other terms used to deride poor writing often used by amateurs, it's basically just been warped into a catch-all term for "non-traditional joke I don't like."
>How is the new vol
Feels just like the last one, so it's excelent IMO. Also carries over the plot-threads and the next one is kind of an inventory issue (featuring Deadpool 2099) which are always the best ones.
Which makes sense considering the person who wrote most of the jokes is no longer working on it. (Apparently he's still contributing a little bit, but not enough to get co-writer status).
neo-Deadpool fans would call this randumb
This is the problem with Deadpool fans. Most of them have only seen out of context panels so Waypool's run seems like normal Deadpool to them when Deadpool isn't really all that random, he's just goofy.
Bit slow to start, especially if you don't know the characters pulled for Wade's new Merc business, but read in tandem rather than waiting between issues makes it much easier to digest.
Remember to check 3.1 for the Spanish issue. Posehn wrote that one, and he's still collaborating with Duggan, just not as intensely as before due to other projects.
Duggan also picked up Uncanny from Remender, and while the first issue with Stegman was rocky, by issue 2 both he and the artist picked up the slack. There's also Fabian Nicieza writing a digital comic like the Shiklah debut in Dracula's Gauntlet, with Deadpool and Cable
setting up Cable joining the Uncanny Avengers
Cable & Deadpool had him like the word chimichangas for only a couple panels and killing himself mostly because he didn't want to be awake and alone that day.
Waypool had him loving ebin chimichangas being "lmao soooo board I'll shoot my brains out"
Cable & Deadpool was the last time he wasn't a meme character and by god was that a top tier run.
I read it as a kid and it was my intro to Deadpool and a lot of C-list Marvel character (like Titania). The issue I remember the most is the Thom Cruz one.
Also I remember him getting raped by Typhoid Mary in the most fucked up way and it made me sad because he thought she was Syrin and that Syrin finally loved him like he wanted but it was Mary all along and he just starts crying there.
Oh and the way he held Blind Al against her will (and ocassionally tortured her for his amusement) was awful, and when she escaped she went and found this dude who helped her out and befriended her only to one day find him dead because Wade killed him and he said not to escape on him again or he would kill everyone she talks to or some awful shit.
Damn Kelly's DP was dark.
So this book probably wasn't supposed to take place in ANAD Marvel was it? Because from when I read it, it really didn't seem to be that way aside from CEO Peter shoved in at the end.
So Deadpool did something that might be construed as lolsorandumb to get Wolverine's attention as a means to further an ulterior motive?
Sounds kind of like what happened in S-M/DP#1. It just dragged on too long and I think that's why people are getting that Way vibe from it. (People getting bent out of shape about the morality app thing are blowing it out of proportion I think.) Because Way would take that Dormammu bit, and stretch it out over an entire run.
Maybe I'm just not up on more recent Kellypool, but I think /co/ is being overly harsh on this book. I'm willing to give the guy a chance to tell a story and see where he goes with it.
I was rewatching 30 Rock when I noticed the name, Adsit, during the opening credits. I was like "hmm, they look similar" so I googled it and it turns out the character was based off the actor.
And I haven't had anybody to tell until I saw a deadpool related thread
People on /co/ not reading comics? What a shocker.
No but seriously I always thought that was actually a meme with all the pirating going on here but surprisingly enough, it's true.
