The Killing Joke original 1988 coloring vs. 2008 recoloring

Cover and panel artist Brian Bolland was reportedly displeased with colorist John Higgins’ work on the 1988 graphic novel:

Bolland envisaged the flashback sequences in black and white, and instructed Watchmen-colorist John Higgins to use “muted November colors”. He was upset when he saw the finished comic had “garish … hideous glowing purples and pinks … and my precious Eraserhead-esque flashback sequences swamped in orange.”

In 2008 DC Comics released a 20th anniversary edition of The Killing Joke featuring a complete recoloring by Bolland. Bolland made various alterations to restore his artistic intent, including replacing Higgins’ bright flashback panels with muted tones (save for items colored for emphasis, such as the Red Hood and Joker’s green hair) and removing the yellow oval from the Batsuit.

The Very Comprehensive Deadpool Masterpost

The aim of this post is to introduce new fans to Deadpool’s comics and help you identify which collections, trade paperbacks and omnibus books Deadpool’s individual stories, issues and runs can be found in as well as which order to read them. 

I will not be providing links to any pirated copies and would rather not recommend websites as prices will vary across the dozens of sites comics can be purchased from.

I have read every single issue on this list so if you have any questions or need any help please do feel free to ask me.

Main Deadpool Continuity & Reading Order

This is the bulk of the masterlist. Each of Deadpool’s main books and stories are listed below in the order which they should be read from the very beginning all the way up to, and including, his current shenanigans.
I have marked a few recommended starting points so if you do not wish to tackle the entire list there should be a starting point which suits you.

or Deadpool Classic Omnibus Vol. 1

Cable & Deadpool (2004) #1 - #50 [A Recommended Starting Point]
Characters from Agent X (2002) make an appearance throughout this series which is written by Deadpool’s co-creator Fabian Nicieza. Deadpool’s relationship with Cable is one of the most loved in comics and Cable is scheduled to appear in Deadpool 2. This is a big, thematic book exploring heroism and the bigger picture.

Deadpool Annual (2013) #1
Although this was released in 2013 the first half of the story explains the origin of the white caption box which makes its appearance throughout Deadpool (2008). The second half of the story leads into Deadpool (2012) so it may be worth revisiting this issue before you start that series.
-Collected in; Deadpool: The Wedding of Deadpool
or Deadpool: The Ones With Deadpool
or Deadpool Classic Vol. 18: Deadpool vs. Marvel

Deadpool (2008) #1 - #63
This is the book which was being published when Deadpool exploded into the phenomenon he is today. All 63 issues were written by Daniel Way and you can see the zany fingerprints he left on the character present in the fandom, the video game and all the ongoing books and miniseries from 2009 to 2012.
-Collected in; Deadpool: Secret Invasion, Dark Reign, X Marks The Spot, Monkey Business, What Happens In Vegas, I Rule You Suck, Space Oddity, Operation Annihilation, Institutionalized, Evil Deadpool & Dead

or Deadpool Classic Vol. 18: Deadpool vs. Marvel

Thunderbolts (2012) #1 - #32
Daniel Way initially writes this series before Charles Soule and then Ben Acker & Ben Blacker take over. It’s Deadpool in a team setting which is less bloody than Uncanny X-Force but not as clean cut as the Avengers.
-Collected in; Thunderbolts: No Quarter, Red ScareInfinity, No Mercy, Punisher vs. The Thunderbolts
notes: Can be read alongside Deadpool (2012) although there is very little crossover. The series ends before Deadpool (2012) Original Sin.

Deadpool & Cable: Split Second (2016) #1 - #6

-Collected in; Deadpool & Cable: Split Second

Uncanny Avengers (2015) #1 - ongoing [A Recommended Starting Point]

Deadpool & the Mercs for Money (2016) #1 - #5 [Miniseries]

notes: Should be read before Deadpool (2015) World’s Greatest: Vol. 5 Civil War II

Spider-Man/Deadpool (2016) #1 - ongoing
