The idea of Deadpool encountering (killing) literary classics is a funny one but the actual story here is pretty lame. Following his murder of the Marvel Universe, 'Pool sets his sights on their inspirations, fiction classics. Wade spends a panel here or there killing and I guess the inner 13 year old in me is supposed to think its cool and it doesn't really pay off. The laughs don't outshine the wanton destruction of life. You also have a strange group of antagonists that make no sense and an ending that is awful. The art is fun and well-suited for the book but this is not a book that matters in any way and Cullen Bunn has done much better in the past.
