As a fan of Deadpool, it was imperative to find a copy of New Mutants #98 to witness his greatness. I would've gladly settled for a ratty copy of this issue to read through, but barring that had no qualms about getting a nicer one…be prepared to pay, however. Having been a couple of decades removed from reading a real-life comic book, as opposed to the graphic novels, it was both fun and disappointing to be able to blast through the issue so quickly. The complexity of Deadpool's detailed existence were overshadowed by his simple Awesomeness in attacking Mr. Summers & Co. though he ultimately gets wrapped up and mailed back to Mr. Tolliver, it was an impressive debut, nonetheless. For a 23+ year old issue, I am quite lucky to have received such a well preserved copy. Having bought it to enjoy as a comic book rather than a collectible, I am well pleased. That said, I'd be happy to pass it along to another Deadpool fan.Read full review
Quintessential Deadpool for any DP collector.
This is a great key issue for any Deadpool fan, it's the first appearance of Deadpool, Gideon, and Domino (technically Copycat is posing as Domino and her true first appearance is X-Force 11). Deadpool introduces himself as a mercenary hired by Mr. Tolliver to take out Cable and the New Mutants. DP is featured in the latter half of the book, and all in all it is a good story to introduce DP and Domino. Rob Liefeld originally created DP to be a throw away enemy and homage/satire t Deathstroke, but he ended up being a very popular character. The book itself has great colors, the action keeps it moving without lulling, the story is ok, and Liefeld'as art is good, and Deadpool looks great. You can tell he is still being developed because he has all these weird gadgets he doesn't usually have, also, he doesn't mention or seem to have his healing factor. With the ever growing fan base, deadpool seems to blowing up exponentially. His merchandise has skyrocketed in price, action figures I purchased last year for twenty bucks have been going for $80-$100, I purchased a NM98 for $15 2yrs ago. A movie is on it's way, and fans are finding their way everyday so this is a great investment. If you want one as the cherry to your collection, then it is also known as the "Grail" to a DP collector. It is THE Key issue, and a must have. Ok that covers if for me, feel free to ask any questions, and have a nice day!! ..Read full review
New Mutants #98
The time is now to buy this comic. I have been tracking this item, before and after purchasing this comic and within three weeks they are selling for $50 more than the previous weeks average. With the success of the movie franchise the value and collectors intrinsic need for the book will only get higher.
