After failing to kill Cable in the last issue and currently at the mercy of his one-time friend and partner. Nathan is not in the mood for Wade’s crap and wants answers. After Deadpool spills, he and Cable decide to confront Stryfe the moment the clone hands over the cure for the Prestons to Wade in the past. After Deadpool gets the cure and leaves in the past, Stryfe is attacked by Cable and the future Deadpool. After convincing Wade that there is a possibility that they might lose the battle, Stryfe tells him that he still has the chance to kill Cable. The revelation leads to a Mexican stand-off between the three men.

As the shooting starts, Cable is hit and decides to end the fight with a tachyon bubble. Unfortunately, it needs time to charge and that gives Stryfe the opportunity to threaten Wade. Deadpool gets the upper hand, but Stryfe planned ahead and an epic battle begins between Deadpool and a stampede of rampaging dinosaurs. Cable gets the drop on Stryfe and he releases the next part of his plan; an army of starving Vampires. As one can guess, when starving Vampires mix with rampaging dinosaurs, one gets an army of rampaging Vampire Dinosaurs.


The fact that this issue leans into the ridiculous with such relish is utterly entertaining and great to read. Duggan does a great job of pushing the limits of absurdity with these characters and the world itself. I found myself laughing at what could possibly happen next and marvelling at Koblish’s art as he ramps up the action by going bigger and bigger. This is just fun from beginning to end.
