Deadpool Week: SHORYUKEN!!! - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Deadpool Week: SHORYUKEN!!!
Tonight, we revisit an issue that yielded one of the most-posted scans of Deadpool ever: the famous Street Fighter scene. (A definite favorite.) The whole issue (Joe Kelly's Deadpool #27) is wacky fun. On we go!

Our story begins after Deadpool has saved the world from a space monster. Even though technically that was a really good thing, he's feeling BAD about it, because the monster, while it would have taken away free will, would have left everyone with mindless bliss. So the way 'Pool sees it, by destroying the thing, he's doomed the world to continuing pain and misery. Yes. Really. Anyway.

"Pool goes to "Dr. Bong," who is, um, rather NEW to the psychiatry game, because 'Pool is more off his rocker than usual, and is hallucinating bunnies and dark haired women and what-all, and it's affecting his work. Dr. Bong decides that 'Pool needs to fight somebody because fighting people seems to help 'Pool think. So naturally, 'Pool decides to track down another dude who has a healing factor to fight. And we get this:

At the very end, Deadpool also reveals that the woman in his hallucinations was...dun dun dun...the woman who stole his heart long ago, and then...died. O_o

Hey, Unca Logan, tell me a story about your past like maybe the one about how you owe Moses a quarter...

Hee! Aw, this comic strip is really a fun read. I also realize how much Wolverine is so similar to Bigby in Fable. (Comes with the wolf thing?) Deadpool is so cute! I think I'm going to start reading more of his comics to see what he's all about.

I'll have to relinquish my Miss Universe title!

Deadpool is like crack - you just kind of get addicted after awhile, you know? *g* And almost every one of his comics is worth reading (although I should note the current writer is not my favorite, just FYI. Older stuff=better. Joe Kelly's 1997 run = GOLD.)

You may have read this in my LJ, but a friend from my lcs is drawing art of me giving the FOX logo a Shoryuken dragon punch for what they did to Deadpool in the film.
