An odd collection...

They have Cable's introduction which is a messy affair.

Then skip New Mutants #88-100 and X-Force #1-15.

They have the mini-series Cable: Blood & Metal, which is okay but it really only makes sense if you were following X-Force and it is a sort of prologue to X-Cutioner's Song.

Then they skip X-Cutioner's Song which is where a lot of Cable finally gets revealed, if still a bit unclear.

Then they have Cable #1-4 which takes place after X-Cutioner's Song. Though it follows up a lit

Cable: Blood & Metal. Cable's initial mini-series is one-part flashback to the Wild Pack (now the Six-Pack due to trademark concerns) and one part modern hunt after Stryfe. And none of it's particularly interesting. The big confrontation between Cable and Stryfe should have been fundamental, but it turns out to just be minor setup for the X-Cutioner's Song a month or two later, which addressed the question of who these characters are at a much deeper level.

It is Louise Simonson's last hurrah, leaving the X-books with Cable, who's mantle was picked up by Rob Liefeld. These tales are just the start of what became the very huge Cable legacy within Marvel. 5 out of 12.
Collects New Mutants #87, Cable: Blood & Metal #1-2, and Cable #1-4.

Il volume raccoglie la prima mini di Cable e i primi 4 albi della serie regolare. Nel complesso all'epoca mi parvero buone storie, ma rileggendole di recente ci si rende conto di quanto risentano del periodo d'inizio anni 90 e quanto poco siano invecchiate bene. Si salvano, nonostante alcune cadute di stile, i disegni.

Cable's mythology is really convoluted...And that's just from this. Still, it is a fun series and he's an interesting character. Romita's art was definitely the best in the book.

Καλό γράψιμο από τον Fabien Nicieza και τη Louise Simonson, πουόμως δε σώζει ούτε τη σχεδόν ακατανόητη πλοκή ούτε το μετριότατο σχέδιο.
