Night of the Living Deadpool brought you the tale of the Merc with the Mouth trapped in a zombie apocalypse. Our hero eventually found a “cure” to the outbreak – any zombie that ate Deadpool transformed… into another Deadpool. Happily ever after? Not so fast! Because wandering hordes of Deadpools might just be worse than flesh-hungry walking corpses! Now, the world is overrun by zillions of Deadpools AND zillions of zombies, and a girl named Liz just wants to live through the night. But did she really just find a good Deadpool among the chaotic hordes? Plus: Wait, what’s the actual danger of a planet overrun with Deadpools? Tummy sore from laughing? Overdose of awesomesauce? Or just too much of a good thing? I have no idea how this is going to end.
Girls, guns or zombies? Deadpool, guns, zombies, and Deadpools!
My thoughts… Return of the Living Deadpool is the sequel to Night of the Living Deadpool and it’s just as funny, gory and satisfying! This time, Deadpool not only faces a horde of flesh-hungry zombies but also a legion of wisecracking Deadpools created by Deadpool’s heroic act of desperation in Night of the Living Deadpool! Oh, and Deadpool, this time, is aided by young zombie killer Liz who – spoiler alert! – dons the black and red costume to become a Deadpool-killing Lady Deadpool! I hope she becomes the focus of a second sequel!
