I knew I had to get this when I saw the stories were by 1) Chris Yost, 2) a manga duo, and 3) Michael Allred on writing and art
- Spoiler: show
It is so nice of Christopher Yost to step away from his busy Hollywood lifestyle and return to write us a lowly comic book story. And I wish he would do it more because it allows us to again see his talent. The first story is the best and while the premise is the dumbest thing ever and you think it wouldn't work, not only does he make it hilarious but he also ends up making it actually rather clever.
The second story is a let down. While we do get some manga art, in the end this story is an advertisement; this may be a Deadpool review but I am not making a joke when I say that. I mean Deadpool literally holds up an issue of Deadpool Samurai at the end and tells you to buy a bunch of copies. Though I have never even heard of Deadpool Samurai so this may have been necessary.
The third story is great because it is just Allred having fun. The premise is a really amusing one and the page of pranks is a delight! Also I see Michael and Laura have the kind of clout that allows them to break the rules since she uses other colors in the framing sequence
