CECIL BECOMES A REAL BOY AGAIN!

Gwen also gets to be one of the Avengers and meets Spider-Gwen!

Also, she gets to see a little girl dress as her for Halloween.

I don't want to accept this. No when Champions is still out and so much cancer.

I guess it is better to see this end like this instead of have Gwen turn into another squirrel girl and be corrupted?

Asher Cox

Hey, it's Gwen-Pig! And The Power Pack! And a Moon Girl that actually looks like a little girl! And Officer Grey!

Also, Squirrel Girl! And because she's written by a decent writer and drawn by good artists, she's an adorable and likeable character!

Luis Gutierrez

Gwen gets to kick Mephisto's ass and reunite with her brother again! If only Squirrel Girl were as good in her own book as she is here!

Now the little girl from before is old, and probably dying, and Gwen spends some time with her.

And … it's over. A beautifully bittersweet ending to a series that started as a crappy meme.

I think I got something in my eye.

Aw shait. That's pretty sad. But better she ends as a great character than as a shitty, washed up deadbeat or "diversified" like the rest of the capes. Man, I'm gonna miss Gwen, she was a real cutie.

I wanna kiss Gwenpool on the lips

Well, if you got $80 and are willing to wait until September, then you could give her the hot glue treatment.

Look at it this way, user. Gwenpool got a good ending, one that really hits home with comics fans and allows her character to mature and accept what it means to be a comic character. If her book continued on forever, the creative team would get rotated in and out, at best they'd rehash the same plot lines and at worst it would just be lol so randumb xD crossovers all the time with quirky hijinx. Like the little Gwenpool fan, she got the run she deserved, and the knowledge her time was ending so she could see the end on her own terms.

Charles Powell

Are haven't been here long, have you?

Ayden Jackson

When this first started, I was turned off by a lot of things; the shit art of Issue 1, Gwenpool's early attempts at being lolsorandum, her sociopathy about background characters while insisting she's still the hero (like trying to shoot Spider-Nig's criminal classmate and completely expecting him to be okay with it), and overall coming off like a self-insert's version of Deadpool. The fags in the previous threads who responded to any criticism of the book with waifufaggotry or agreeing with her "Comics mean nothing matters" beliefs didn't help my opinion. I fucking hate using Metafiction as a means to devalue the world around the characters, it only detracts from the story.

But the book actually surprised me by taking all the grievances I've had and trying to weave them into the book without doing something stupid like calling the readers haters or something. Gwen's lack of self-awareness got her in trouble more times than not, trying to tango with A-Listers got her ass beat, the metashit went in actually interesting directions by interacting physically with shit like borders and sound effects and becoming the basis of her powers, Gwen learned how much of an ass she's been during the Future Gwen arc and sacrificed her book to not hurt the heroes she loved, and I think its handling of the cancellation as a "Impending Mortality" plotline was handled fairly well.

I still can't say it's the best book Marvel's ever made. But goddammit, it's a solid story with a solid character arc, attractive protagonist, likable supporting cast and nice art, All of which in combination are in rare supply in today's Marvel. Though I gotta disagree on one thing about the ending; it might be better that Gwenpool die peacefully rather than go the way of Squirrel Girl.

Adam Hill

Could have done without all the panels wasted on the nu-marvel token heroes, but as far as send-offs go, I think Hastings did it right. Closure for all the characters people give a fuck about. A few good moments. Finality without burning every bridge. There's possibilities for it to come back, but at the same time, it doesn't leave us on a cliffhanger.

Good stuff.

Even if she were to succeed, Editorial would probably retcon it to nothing.

In the last issue Gwen fulfills all her fangirl dreams as she contemplates staying in an eternal loop of being appreciated in retrospective.
I'm numb. How should I feel?

Just you wait. This series is going to explode in a few years and catch Marvel with their pants down.
Isn't that the point of the last issue, this Gwen is lost forever, whatever appears next will not really be her, just very similar, Gwen is forever in this comic.

Isn't that the point of the last issue, this Gwen is lost forever, whatever appears next will not really be her, just very similar, Gwen is forever in this comic.
Which really is a fail safe against Marvel kikery because now it doesn't matter what they do with the character, the real her is forever protected in these pages.

Galactus is an essential part of the universe so I'd say Galactus in most cases

Nolan Brown

Well, isn't the Editorial basically the One Above All, which is both god and the avatar of the author?

What if they restart the series in a year or two with the same artist and the same writer?

Lucas Bell

The key word here is restart, it would have to be issue 26 for it to count as the same gwen.

In an interview with Multiversity comics, Chris Hastings revealed some plans for Gwenpool that didn't make the cut.

IF ONLY THERE WAS MORE TIME
There are a few threads that got wrapped up faster than I planned (or just dropped) that I would have liked to do more with.

1) The Poole Boys!
An army of beefy men in Gwenpool uniforms. We could done so much with them! Alas, they were all arrested, and that was that.

2) What happens to Teddy?
The short version is answered issue 25, but the long version would have been an exploration of all the various competing versions of the afterlife in the Marvel universe.

3) The Arcade D&D story could have been much longer.
We planned out arcs based around when Gurihiru was available, and when we’d use guest artists. We could only get them to do 12 and 13 before jumping ahead to work on 16-20. This story was meant to be the short and fun goof that it was, but over the course of writing it, I found that we could have gone way deeper. We certainly could have had a more substantial Deadpool crossover too. But I had to move on to the next arc, because that’s what we already planned! OH WELL!

4) More with Future Evil Gwenpool.
Future Evil Gwenpool was going to become Gwen’s arch nemesis, always operating in the background to try and manipulate Gwen into turning heel and becoming her. Once I was given word the series was going to end at issue 25, that was abandoned, and we made the rest of her adventures about trying to cope with her own cancellation.

Marvel denied us more Evil Gwen.

That sounds pretty good.

Big Gwen knows this is volume 1, which means starting the count from scratch won't necessarily mess with Gwen herself. Of course, this relies on whichever writer Marvel choosing for a future Gwenpool run to have read this, but even if it's shit Gwen knew it and stayed the same at heart. Other writers can bend her into the shape they want but deep down she'll always be the same Gwen, so long as someone, at some point in time, writes a comic that acknowledges it.

Luke Perry
Luke Perry

What if all future Gwenpool writers never read the original 25 and only ever know her from all the non-Hastings work turning her into LE SELFIE MILLENIAL NOT-DEADPOOL?

We should storytime Hastings' previous miniseries, Longshot Saves The Universe, until they have the good taste to put him on another regular book.
They really should be giving Adam Warren more work, too…

nothing we will do matters becasue the original is there and everyone will still have their canon stuff
Fuck I'm laughing. I don't know if was MCninja idea or are they dmg controlling for the Star Wars movie and new upcoming shit

According to his twitter, Marvel is shooting down all of his pitches and canning his projects.

David Parker
David Parker

Well of course. He was supposed to just write a meme character for a meme comic. Critical reception doesn't matter, is he can't follow the rules how can you trust him with more joke. Gwen became, at least by what they expected, a really complex character that they can't just slap into everything else as cheap merchandise, if you ask at Marvels executive board they'll tell you that Hastings ruined the Gwenpool product.

Jason Brooks

Anime/manga sacrifices detail for exaggerated emotions and facial expressions.

Marvel chose the fugly CalArts design over that one.
What's worse is that that's a variant cover, so you'd buy Gurihiru's cute Squirrel Girl and then open it up to find the horrifying CalArts hamster/hambeast inside.

Carson Collins

They really should be giving Adam Warren more work, too…
Isn't Warren constantly busy working on Empowered and consuming copious amounts of manga and anime? It's been a long time since he wasn't just a guest artist or writer for big two. Considering that he knows people like Jim Lee, Warren could probably get a big two book i he wanted to.

Ryan Campbell

As if the Big Two would be willing to pay for that kind of talent.

Noah Cruz

They killed the meme girl everyone loved and turned it into the meme trans-Down syndrome monster everyone hates.

A meta character that beated everyone with bullshit, not because she was a marysue, but because she was incredibly lucky.

Feminists know shit how to write female characters.

Power Pack 1. Skip 34 (it's a bad filler issue)

power pack
comfy
Oh. Original Power Pack is actually really dark (It's a good tier under Animorphs' "Everything is fucked and only some hormonal, irrational teens can hold off absolute failure while you hope for outside intervention that may never come and by the end most of the team and the handicapped children they recruited are dead", but pretty dark for a kid's series). You can skip to the stand-alone Power Pack Day One miniseries then read the rest of those minis in release order, but they're crammed full of in-jokes about the original series

Andrew Cooper
Andrew Cooper

One of the most jarring things I can get from this comic is how the guest characters are far better here than in their own comics.
In just this issue we had Squirrel Girl.
With less than 10 lines she was obviously adorkable, smart but not Mary Sue, confident but not invincible.
Good Doom.
Originally just a gimmick by Bendis, here is actually supportive, wise, believably atoning in around 5 pages of appearance.
And finally the most egregious.
Miles Morales.
The guy's been out for years now and I still can't mention one memorable thing about him. In Gwenpool he's a down to earth guy that cares about his family above everything, shit, one of the main complaints is that he doesn't even have a real arch-nemesis villain but now he had evil Gwen, an nearly omnipotent sociopath with a god complex guilty of the dead of his family just to amuse her.
Now that's an origin story and an arch-nemesis.
