Deadpool Vol 1 : Dead Presidents (Marvel NOW!) Vol. 1: 1-6) by Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan Review:

It’s an undead history lesson as dead US Presidents find themselves brought back to the land of the living, and there’s only one hero who has
the skills to take them on. Unfortunately, Captain America was busy, so they got Deadpool instead. That’s right, the Merc with a Mouth stars in
this six issue volume in the Marvel NOW! series, after S.H.I.E.L.D. recruits Wade Wilson to take out the undead Presidents, from George Washington
and Abraham Lincoln to Gerald Ford. With these monstrous National Icons running loose and destroying everything in site, it’s up to the smart-ass
merc to use his charm and bullets to take them out and put them back into the ground.

The artwork is beautiful in this collection, and the writing is both hilarious and action-fueled. Getting to see history used in humorous
dialogue and having it twisted in this dark tale is awesome, and fans will also enjoy the tie in to the larger Marvel universe as a whole. This
is a classic Deadpool story arc and is not to be missed, so be sure to read your copies of this book today!
