Deadpool #1

A new volume of Deadpool starts here with a pair of storylines. The first, involving Deadpool being contracted by an illusive assassin guild known as the Atelier to kill Doc Ock, gets pushed into the background pretty quickly (but likely will prove the longer thread for the comic). The second, which takes up most of the issue, involves Deadpool being kidnapped by the Harrower in an attempt to grow a new Carnage inside Deadpool's body whose healing properties provide an unique setting for her experiment.

The comic isn't quite as wacky as the flavor I prefer in my Deadpool stories, nor bloody, but it is weird and bizarre story with the time of Deadpool's contract ticking down while he's being turned into a living petri dish. There's enough to keep my interest, but not necessarily enough to bring me back for issue #2.
