Hard to out-‘Rank’

The Deadpool Corps Rank and Foul handbook is neither rank nor foul; fans of the old Joe Kelly Deadpool book and the Great Lakes Avengers (or Initiative, etc.) will appreciate the detailed character profiles. Blind Al, Zoe Culloden, Weasel, Dinah Soar, Big Bertha, Madcap--they’re all here! But don’t look for Deadpool arch-foe T-Ray; he was included in a previous handbook. You won’t miss him, though, because this issue is crammed with about five dozen old and new characters that have appeared in Deadpool’s various titles. Rank and Foul is a fun, often funny read (DP’s had some inane adventures, after all), and has some nice new illustrations by Gus Vasquez.
