PC POST #357: -REVIEW- Deadpool vs The Punisher #04

Penultimate issue of this fantastic series didn't fail to impress. Aside from the shocking ending at the end of this issue, Fred Van Lente gave us a great entertaining miniseries so far with the great artwork of Pere Perez.

The plot was somewhat sacrificed for a great action scenes due to the fight among Taskmaster vs the Punisher and Deadpool. But fear not, this was a great reading.

The fighting scenes were well built by Van Lente and Perez, like last issue it was amazing seeing Frank showing some great martial art skills against Taskmaster.
Frank was always a martial artist but sometimes writers forgot about that, it was a breath of fresh air to see Frank being master in many disciplines and used specific techniques against Taskmaster.

Van Lente's writing in this book is very simple without any kind of weird twists, this is a story of two antiheroes who don't fall in love for each other but they know they have to work together to accomplish their objectives, Frank wants the codes to cut out the financial support of the criminal parties and Deadpool wants to save Hudson.

Deadpool and Punisher are very different from each other but Van Lente's make it work perfectly. He makes sense and built a good synergy between them. 

Pere Pérez is an amazing artist, the fighting panels are astonishing. Great motion between characters and specially the techniques applied in the fight. Either Van Lente or Pérez knows their martial arts. 
Ruth Redmond deserves some shout out too because she was part of this amazing art and give life to every panel of this comic with her beautiful colors. 

Great cover by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire, i still think that this should be on the 5th issue and not on the 4th but either way it's top notch artwork. Both characters beaten up to death just makes this cover the most epic of this series.

Overall Rate: 9 out of 10
