I must admit I am well impressed with the new series of Dr Who so far. I can actually understand what's going on!

I really enjoyed the first issue of Deadpool Unleashed.

I am still concerned about overexpose - I'd love it if Wolverine and Deadpool became something such as Wolverine and Cable (or a rotating slot) - but the tales are very good. It was a pleasure to see Thanos. And reading about Deadpool's perspective of Secret Wars, that was fun, too.

I'll be buying this one.

Incidentally, I know Panini would not be in a position to reprint it, but it's a shame Marvel US and DC can't give me a Harley Quinn/Deadpool crossover.

And speaking of DWM, I know the licensing would make it impossible, but I'd love to see a comic strip featuring the Doctor teaming up with the likes of Reed Richards.
