"Dr. Strange Lives (or How I Learned Deadpool Was Da Bomb)"

So far this has been the most amusing title from the Marvel NOW! run which should come as no surprise. Deadpool is truly hamming it up throughout the pages and there is plenty of help given with his supporting cast. This issue takes us a step deeper into the realm of the unknown by bringing in Dr. Strange who is to help Deadpool take out the undead...that is the idea at least.
The readers are given a little back-story on the guy who is reviving the presidents as well as getting introduced to a couple more that have been revived. I am surprisingly enjoying the over the top representations of the presidents involved. Any stereotypical thing you can attach to one of them is present here but it is done in a way that doesn't feel stale. There is even a Watergate joke done by Nixon.

The issue ends with Dr. Strange giving Deadpool a sword that is enchanted and will help destroy the undead and also whispers some information into his ear that is not shared with the readers. Deadpool is now off to try to fix the undead problem on his own. I have faith that the next issue will keep me laughing as much as this one.
