A new series of episodes kicks off today with “Deadpool: Secret Invasion” by Daniel Way. We talk about the quirky narrative and fun-loving violence, sure. I mean, how can you not giggle over a baseball mascot packin’ heat? But we also tear back that happy veneer and analyze what makes Deadpool tick as a character and examine the darker parts of this story.

The Annihilation Wave marches on in Book Two, challenging three of the Marvel cosmos’ most powerful beings: Silver Surfer, Super Skrull, and Ronan the Accuser (who clearly draws the short end of the alliteration stick). We marvel of the quiet badassitude of the Silver Surfer and the great restraint it takes for a writer to pull off such a mood. We’re wowed by the Super Skrull’s cartoony art that lulls you before its savage finale. Then, lastly, we poop all over Ronan. Yeah, sorry, but it was anti-climactic for us, too.
