Here are my less-than-four pages from this week's comic that had me, lazy trade-only buyer, trekking to an actual comic store to snag it.

HOW MOURNS A MERCENARY?

Deadpool & Cable #26: In which Deadpool nostalgizes/summarizes/hallucinates the high points of Cable & Deadpool and Messiah War and etcetera to the present, viewed as Deadpool's bittersweet love letter to his BFF, Cable. And by "BFF," I mean "apparently Valentine's Day has arrived a week and a half early!"

Read the first 6 sad/funny/sad pages here. (ETA Link fixed.) And then 2 pages plus a bit under the cut!

It was love at first sight. )

It's a bit of a hodge-podge of a book, with a mishmash of artists, art styles, lead characters and stories, but The Book of the Iron Fist is worth a buy. Why? Because it has the tale of Wu Ao Shi, the Pirate Queen of Pinghai Bay (last seen in the Iron Man Annual).

Now, regular readers will know that Wu Ao Shi, the Pirate Queen of Pinghai Bay is one of my favourite characters. There's two reasons for this. a) Fraction/Brubaker tells her story really well and b) she's fucking ace. She's a female Iron Fist, but she's hard as fuck and yes, her fist has been plunged into the chest of Shou-Lao the Undying to make it Like Unto a Thing of Iron.

For background, Wu Ao Shi was saved from a beating by Lei Kung the Thunderer of K'un L'un and trained, but harshly. taught that life did not care if she thrived or starved, Wu Ao Shi met a fisherman who gave her fish. It was the first time that she was given anything. He later proposed to her using two silver rings that he found in a fish. She trains more, becomes the Iron Fist and their paths diverge for they are too different people.

Our story picks up just after she has taken on the mantle of the Iron Fist )

This entertains me greatly, so I tracked down some back issues to put it all together. It's sort of a gift-wrapped crossover.

This begins with Ennis's run on Hellblazer, and goes all the way through to Punisher.

Greetings True Believers!

I picked-up the Deadpool: Origins one-shot today and it was surprisingly good.

We all know DP as the merc-with-a-mouth and a jokester but Wade isn't always about the laughs......4 scans.
