Publisher's Summary

Superheroes battle the living dead in this hilarious spoof on the comic book universe! The Undead Pool is a humorous and demented origin story of former mercenary Mace Murdock, who after being subjected to an experiment from the evil clown Zarathustra that leaves him with accelerated healing powers and the hunger for human brains, adopts the alter ego The Undead Pool. Armed with his new abilities and a twisted sense of humor, he joins forces with superheroes Stable, Psychotic Menacing Schoolgirl, and Tigernaut to battle Zarathustra and his zombie clown army. The comedy never ends in this science fiction and horror parody of every superhero and supervillain that comic book enthusiasts love and hate.

Really well done

This book is full of humor and chaos. It's definitely a story that needs to be listened to. And, it definitely needed to be performed, and performed well. I wasn't a fan of Dead Pool, and am not sure I would have liked this book if I hadn't listened to it, and tried reading it. It's a spoof on several comics. But, the narrator pulls you in immediately. And, each character is so unique and distinct. I was blown away at the versatility, and the perfect line delivery so the listener would actually get the humor amongst the chaos. The performance felt more like you were watching what was happening with these very strange characters. Trying to imagine that quality of performance would be asking a lot of the average reader. It felt like it was written to be experienced via audio or visual performance. Or, the narrator just did such a great job, it made it seem that way. Really well performed and entertaining short listen.

a rejected deadpool comic

svengoolie reference 5 of 5
a parody of a parody that's full of border line copyright infringement, dated topical humor, and poor attempts at pop culture references. you can skip this one and not have missed much. this is time you could have spent better, like by reading an actual deadpool comic.
