Deadpool is officially overexposed, but since Wolverine remains popular despite appearing in about a gazillion books every month, Marvel just keeps churning 'em out. not sure if the two 'Pool books cross-reference each other, because here Daniel Way takes the Merc with a Mouth and his faithful parrot sidekick Bob out to sea and do some serious pillaging. seriously. and right after he got bank. i guess being rich does get boring after awhile. putting 'Pool in breaking-the-fourth-wall comedy situations can be fun for awhile, but i miss the wisecracking badass who can slice and dice with the best of them (yes, talking to you, Logan, Bullseye). and at the end of the day, he's gonna have a heart of gold and be a lovable loser - please, there's only one Peter Parker. next issue, i want to see him carve up the nasty pirates threatening a resort island in deliciously gory ways as the story title suggests, but i think i am going to be disappointed.
