Oh dear, it's basically a Civil War tie-in. Sigh. I'm on record as hating the Civil War stuff, so I wasn't thrilled to see that this was involved. It was blatantly obvious that Deadpool was only pro-Registration because the editors needed to maintain their artificial 50/50 split and there was no way in hell they could finesse Cable being on the pro side. Don't get me wrong, I buy that Deadpool would take a paycheck to hunt down unregistered heroes, and have fun doing it. And the arguments he spo ...more
Ok, these two are like an adorable old married couple by now.

The first part of this volume is a Civil War tie-in with our two main characters on opposite sides. There are some pretty funny fourth-wall breaking gags here, even though it is mostly just one big fight. The second half of the book, well, just didn't make a lot of sense to me, and just seemed strange. Not one of the better Deadpool books.

I'm not a big fan of the whole Civil War event, and the Cable and Deadpool section is no exception.

Continuing the great X-read of 2017 that has now stretched into 2018...

Okay. So I am way behind on reviewing these x-books that I have been reading. So I am going to just kind of ramble about all of them and copy/paste my thoughts. Which will make for a bit of a mess and I am sorry. Quick ramblings:

Cable and Deadpool continues to be surprisingly good though a little more scattered in these couple of volumes.
X-Men the Blood of Apocalypse was rushed in my opinion...
Phoenix Warsong was pretty decen

Turns out Civil War was exactly what this title needed. The relationship between Cable and Deadpool needed some kind of wrench thrown in it, and man did it wreak havoc on them. I wasn't crazy about the art, but the writing was strong.

They had a great Civil War tie in! Everything about it just fit. I love it how Nathan continues to care for Wade eventhough it is not always easy. The relationship between those two is really amazing and a great read.

Pretty good, I liked the way the interactions are happening between Cable and Deadpool and the insight in Deadpool.

There's something to be said for the fact that the Civil War tie-in that composes the first three issues of this trade shows some depth and actual use of who the characters are in which to base the arguments for or against the registration act. The thing to be said is this: The main Civil War book was the world's loudest divorce, and next to the C&D tie-in, looks like a farce. Cable and Deadpool actually talk about why they're on either side, and the answer isn't as simple as "because the editor ...more

This volume was surprisingly dark for a book that is so often humorous. The first half is more or less directly tied into the Civil War event with Cable helping the anti-registration side discreetly at first and Deadpool signing up for the pro-registration side for the paycheck and respectability. The latter half of the book focuses on the fallout from the inevitable conflict and manipulations that the two characters go through. Deadpool really gets close to rock bottom in this volume, while som ...more
Is it just me, or is the brief synopsis for a graphic novel harder to write than for a book? Is it because there’s a very basic story line that is dragged out over several comics? Maybe it’s because when you write a synopsis you give out too many spoilers? I don’t know. But I am open to your thoughts.
Paved With Good Intentions is full of twists and turns. It was definitely the most interesting Cable and Deadpool that I have read! Filled with great art and lots of humour (Deadpool is brilliant fo

I started reading Cable & Deadpool for the snark and the unlikely friendship between the two. I never realized I would be reading the anatomy of an unhealthy relationship. I'm hoping that Nicieza will be able to make this relationship a tad healthier while keeping it odd and insane, because I so don't want to give up a fun book because of bad relationship politics.

Otherwise, I enjoyed this trade much more than vol. 5, Living Legends. The mix of action, exposition, relationship, and fun was just

I must say that reading Cable and Deadpool was refreshing and fun. The writing was top as was the art. What was so unique about this series were the two main characters themselves, namely Deadpool with his abilty to break the fourth wall, leading to some of the most hilarious jokes. The series started off a bit slow but progressed fast enough to earn a place in my top 10 comic book series. The ending itself was very touching somehow. This is the only comic book series that, in my opinion, deserv ...more

I absolutely LOVE the Civil War tie-in. Deadpool working for the US government as a bumbling fool with a badge is awesome and the appearance of the Great Lake 'Champions' was a great choice. This group of comics ends with a story centered around the Six-Pack and trouble in Rumekistan which is very well done.

Absolutely loved this set and looking forward to the next.

Vždy perfektní a skvělý Cable už mi leze na nervy (měl bych si nejspíš dát od téhle řady pauzu, pak ale riskuju, že se k ní nevrátím), jinak poměrně fajn příběhy. Nejdřív tu máme tie-in k Civil War, kde se D&C postaví proti sobě, potom příběh, kde se Amíci snaží zdiskreditovat Cabla na Providence i v jeho nové zemi. ...more

Definitely not my favorite volume. The civil war tie-in is meh, although I really enjoyed the way Cable and Wade interacted in these issues. I enjoy their "friendship" very much and the post divorce jokes tug at the heartstrings just a bit.

35 Cable shows Deadpool the people he's killed.
36 Deadpool vs Taskmaster, is a great issue. (but vol7 says it includes 36 so I don't know if it's even included here)
