Panelology is a weekly podcast about comics. We talk about current books, what we're looking forward to, and how to get into reading comics in the first place.

​​​​​​​Deadpool: Soul Hunter (Marvel Comics, 2012; #7-12)

  • Deadpool deals with the fallout of the “Dead Presidents” arc as he tries to find a way to help Agent Preston put her life back together.
  • But that takes a backseat as a demon with an ax to grind extorts Wade into helping him reap some souls.
  • Why does a demon have a grudge against Deadpool?  Well, that has something to do with that time in the ‘80s that Wade tricked him and helped Tony Stark sober up.
  • Koblish, Hawthorne, Moore, Staples, and company give the book a fun, over-the-top look with plenty of sight gags and easter eggs in the background.

Things are falling into place to get into more personal, emotional Deadpool beats.  The fun’s still here, but it’s clear that those elements will be coming into play soon.
