Summary from Goodreads:

Remember when Deadpool saved the Earth from those pesky Skrulls? Well, the guy who stole the intel Deadpool worked so hard to acquire – and positioned himself as Earth’s Number One War Hero – wants to make sure you don’t. The last thing this guy needs is a certain “Merc with a Mouth” letting everyone know the truth of how he saved the day, and he’s hired a certain maniacal man-eater to make sure Deadpool never does. Here comes Tiger-Shark  Collects Deadpool #6-7, 10-11.

My Thoughts:

I was excited to dive into this comic after reading and enjoying the first one in this collection.

I have to say I was a bit let down by this one. I was excited to see more of Deadpool but I feel like the storylines were a little all over the place. I almost felt like I was missing the point. I just didn’t like the villains in either storyline in this graphic novel. I just wasn’t all that interested by what was going on. I felt far more connected to the first storylines with the Skrulls and the dark castles and plots from the beginning of Deadpool’s story. This one just didn’t add a lot to Deadpool’s overall story to me.

I do want to keep reading more about Deadpool because I feel he has a lot to offer the comic book world but this wasn’t his moment to shine in my opinion. Here is to Deadpool wowing me in the next set of stories.
