Deadpool The Duck #5: Marvel's 'The Odd Couple' Adaptation Concludes

That's the perfect way to end this mashup miniseries, with a Looney Tunes homage. What self-respecting humor comic worth its salt wouldn't use one, especially with a talking duck as the star? Will Deadpool The Duck #5 act as a satisfactory conclusion to the saga? What was the point of all of that vomit from the previous issues? How many jokes has Doctor Bong been forced to endure based on his poor choice of supervillain names? Some of these answers will be revealed!

I'm going to get the queasiest query out of the way first. It turns out that the hero-transmogrifying nanobots were in the, ahem, waste spewed out from Deadpool. To turn back to normal, Deadpool The Duck has to consume it. Out of deference to both the more sensitive readers of this fair website and myself, I am not going to share any images from that sequence. Never let it be said that Critical Writ doesn't take easily-nauseated review readers into consideration.

Reaction shots, however, are perfectly fine. Ain't I a stinker?
For the most part, this really is a satisfactory conclusion to the story. The art is colorful and clear, and it has a delightful cartoony aspect to it. Apart from the aforementioned puke issue, I do think that Doctor Bong was defeated a tad too easily, but at least it wasn't just a random bystander who stopped him. Instead, his own weird habit of falling in love with random character angered his associate. I would recommend the miniseries as a whole to your average comics fan, as long as you love humor.
