Written by TOM PEYER Penciled by JACOB CHABOT Cover by SKOTTIE YOUNG
The voices in Deadpool’s head hire him to do the dirtiest job of his career, but the mission is endangered when he’s trapped in an elevator with The Watcher! How will being constantly watched affect Deadpool’s mercenary skills? And will the Watcher be able to keep his sacred vow to not interfere in the affairs of men when Deadpool is really really really annoying?
You guys, Tom Peyer writing Deadpool and the Watcher. Instant pull. Plus, that cover is awesome. This latter statement is required with regards to any Skottie Young cover, you can either say “this Skottie Young cover is awesome” or “holyshitthatisaballstothewalllightningboltinsane cover”. Same applies with anything Tom Peyer writes.
God, remember this book? I feel like every time I come home it’s a trip into the bottomless pit that is my comic book pile and every time I come out with my Hourman and Impulse back issues. Both of those books were pretty important to me throughout high school and into my first year of college.
Hourman was literally the only book I subscribed to when I was in college, mostly because of the lack of a comic book store inside of two hours from St. Bonaventure’s campus. But really, it was the one book I couldn’t do without. I just couldn’t wait the couple of months before a break to catch up. I had to have it in my PO Box every month. Sure, when I would go home for breaks I would go to the store and binge out on Impulse, the Flash, X-Men and Transmetropolitan but my reading comics was pretty limited in college mostly because of the lack of a store, lack of funds, and generally being busy being a college kid if you get what I’m saying.
The book was such a funky trip. I love it, there really is nothing like this book anymore and, really, it’s a shame. Also, unfortunately, there isn’t a collected edition of the twenty-five issue series.
