Cable and Deadpool is, on the surface, an almost entirely nonsensical idea for a teamup book. Luckily, Nicieza seems to have understood that. Most of this large (18 issues) collection is dedicated to sorting out why they're Cable and Deadpool are together in the first place. There are issues, of course. Cable's power level seems to be really overreaching to me, for one. Also, this isn't quite the Deadpool I'm used to. It may be because we aren't so much in his head from a narration standpoint, b...more
This was basically the first comic I ever read, and while it may have not been the best one to start off with - lots of reference to other/past series, which can be a bit off-putting to a new or unfamiliar reader; the loss of one of the titular characters to another book halfway through - it's still one of my favorites. The art is consistently great, cleanly drawn and brightly colored the whole way through, and some of the stories (particularly the opening "One World Church" storyline) are fanta...more
I just don't get this book. I know, I should focus on the positive and praise Nicieza for how well he works with the stupid mandate to connect these two characters who have no real connection, and I should be happy for the two percent of the jokes that are actually funny (everything in Sinister's eerily quaint farmhouse had me smiling), and I should appreciate the impressive two-page spreads that open many of the issues... But these stories just aren't very good. I don't like the cold messiah ve...more

The initial “blue men” arc proves that Nicieza is a lot more adept at writing Deadpool than the hacks of the ‘90s. He’s actually funny and that combines well with Cable. Cable’s movement toward saving the world at any costs is also an interesting direction for the series [7/10]. The 4-parter that follows is if anything stronger because of its willingness to go so big picture with Cable. It also really shows off his character well [8/10]. “Thirty Pieces” neatly advances the plot to its next place...more

I heard great praise throughout the comic world about this series both from critics and fans. I must be missing something. I'm still not sure I enjoy the John Lennon-esque "Imagine" theme presented from a returned-from-the-future pansy ass Messiah figure. And Deadpool...think Wolverine's fight mixed with Spiderman's sarcasm but comes off as more Fredo than either of those two. His jokes are funny about every 50 pages and I just don't connect.

I'm going to have to take a significant break before b...more
Not knowing much of Cable, I found his relationship with Deadpool to be rich and fascinating. I loved the balance between the two characters. Probably my favorite series in Deadpool's continuity, and definitely the one I find funniest and most enjoyable.
IT has one of the coolest openings in a comic book. In a series of panels on one page, Deadpool watches TV in his disfigured glory. He's watching TV day and night, day and night. Then the phone rings, and a voice asks for Deadpool. Wade Wilson, in just boxers, goes off panel and returns still in boxers, but is now wearing his mask. Commitment to the job, man!

I liked it. As always in the Marvel univers, there are A LOT of stuff, characters and storylines to keep track of, but with the most hilarious humor ever to be found in comics, you don't find it all that difficult. I love Deadpool.
Much like Don't Fear the Reaper could use more cowbell, I could use a little more Deadpool
This is the supposed to be THE book to read if you're a Deadpool fan? I'm just so confused.
Aces, guys, totally aces. The most perfect comic ever created.

Alternate universes alight! Body slide by two (yuck).
