Deadpool Challenge week 1 (1991- 1997)

Many of Deadpool’s early appearances aren’t available on the Marvel App.  Almost all of his 1990’s appearances in X-Force are missing.  Hopefully Marvel will add them eventually. Having searched online for some complete list of Deadpool appearances, I’ve found the number to be a lot less than on Comicvine.  The number is close to 500.  So if I want to get this done before the movie comes out I should be able to do it by reading 3-4 issues per day or around 25 issues per week.

Deadpool’s first appearance was in 1991 in The New Mutants Issue #98.  He fights Cable and loses, then gets mailed back to Mr. Tolliver (the man who hired him for the hit on Cable)

25 Comics read so far!!!!

That’s it for week #1.  It’s been a lot of fun.  I’m on vacation next week so I doubt I’ll reach my 25 issues per week goal.  It’ll be a heavy reading catch up week the following week.

My Comics This Week 8/19/15

IMG_0038

Another Bombshell variants week.  Harley Quinn and Power Girl was the only one that didn’t come out with a variant cover.

Harley Quinn and Power Girl #3

IMG_0037

Harley Quinn and Power Girl continue their quest to get home and encounter the evil Dark Vartox.  I love these two ladies together.  This is a great fun, light-hearted comic.

Secret Six #5

IMG_0033

I have to admit only picking up this issue because of the Harley Quinn cover, but as it’s so early in its run I also picked up the previous four issues.  I am really enjoying the story and the characters.   It’s great to see the Riddler turn up as the main villain.  Maybe this comic will hold my interest and I’ll keep picking it up.

Justice League of America #3

IMG_0036

This is one of my favorite Bombshell covers so far.  Chapter 3 in The Darkseid War.  Superman and Lex Luthor fighting together, Darkseid’s daughter arrives and Scot Free joins the JLA to fight.

Wonder Woman #43

IMG_0035

Diana sets out to find Donna.  Aegeus is back.  The artwork in this issue is great.  The ending left me frustrated that I have to wait a whole month to find out what happens next.  Definitely one of my current favorite DC comics.

Superman/Wonder Woman #20

IMG_0034

Superman meets with the president and Wonder Woman frees his friends.  Continuing the Truth story line as they continue to deal with Superman’s secret identity being revealed.  This issue was strongly geared towards Superman and his current story arc.

New on the Marvel Unlimited App 8/17

Marvel-Unlimited-1

I love this app, it’s a great way to catch up on anything missed and even get to read some classic hard to find comics without having to spend a fortune on Ebay.  The annual fee of $69 is great value for money. It’s about the same price as purchasing 17 comics, and I know I read way more than that in a month using the app.  Only a couple more months and Secret Wars will start being added!!!!
