Continuing the great x-read of 2017/18...

Easily my least favorite volume of this series so far. What I've loved about this series is the odd friendship between Cable and Deadpool, the interplay of the sheer insanity of Deadpool's goofiness with Cable's almost morose seriousness. It's an equation that has just worked.

This volume, though, keeps them separate from each other (as the title implies) and it sort of just fell apart for me. I've never been a huge fan of Deadpool on his own - I love him

This was a solid volume with stories that are about half Deadpool wackiness with a bunch of callbacks to his solo series (and I believe, the first appearance of Bob, Agent of Hydra), and the other half the collapse of Cable's utopian vision and him agonizing over it, both of which are enjoyable in their own way. The Cable portion tied into some contemporary X-Men comics that I didn't really know about, but it didn't detract from the story very much. We finally see Cable and Deadpool reconcile, w ...more

So first story arc is kind of meh, but then you get to the second one and...

Okay, I cried like a baby! There was just such this good build up of this relationship and the way it ends had me balling! I haven't cried over a comic since Boster Gold: Blue and Gold. But this hit me hard!

This has two stories. One had Deadpool being Deadpool, and the other has Cable being Cable. These two are such on odd pairing, but Nicieza sold it well. However,his Deadpool solo stories were a bit dull. He is much better at writing Cable, or the two of them together.

You know, I forgot Cable joined Mike Carey's X-Men team during this series. I also forgot that he died! That explains how this Cable-heavy/Deadpool-lite series became the opposite. Luckily, it's still Deadpool as a character and not the paper-thin joke machine he becomes later in life.

I very much liked the way they concluded this part of the story. The best volume I read so far from this crossover. It had a solid story and good humor.

This volume is a perfect example of the problems involved with using multiple-series/storyline-spanning characters to headline a book. Of the seven issues compiled in Separation Anxiety, Cable appears in only three and he and Deadpool appear together only in the last issue. When he does show up, he has to deal with some plotline from some other X book about aliens and an incapacitated Rogue and what-ev-ah.

I come to C&D because I enjoy their bizarre friendship. I want it investigated and poked.

Oh, look, Cable & Deadpool got yanked into another X-Men event. Who would have guessed?

Okay, that's out of my system, and I come with good news: While there's an event going on in about half the issues in this volume, it's done much better than it was with the Apocalypse crap in the previous volume. I had to double-check info to make sure I knew which event was going on, but the story itself is strong. Deadpool spends some time running around on his own, and we get to meet Bob (BOB!), and then e

The Deadpool Stories (36-39). The main problem with these first stories is that Cable is entirely missing, resulting in the comic losing at least half of its charm (and its straight man). The first two issues with the Taskmaster and the Rhino are the more mediocre of the set, while the second two with Agent X and T-Ray play with some nice continuity issues for Deadpool — which is what you want to do when you’re missing half the comic’s cast [6/10].

Fractured (40-42). This is a somewhat incoherent

Z tohoto dílu mám rozpoluplné pocity. Na jednu stranu ve většině příběhu není Cable a děj se točí jen kolem Deadpoola. Ten Niciezovi jako postava sedne a je to vtipné s občasným příměsem depresem a hledáním sebe sama. A poprvé se tu objevuje Hydra Bob =).

No a pak tu jsou bohužel poslední 3 čísla. Série C&D celých 40 čísel buduje dějovou linku, jak Cable vládne na svém vlastním ostrově, všemi manipuluje a hraje si na mesiáše. A kurňa, velké vyústění téhle linky proběhne v ÚPLNÉ JINÉ SÉRII? Máme t

Cable and Dead Pool

Go together quite well although I wouldn't have thought so myself.
Lots of pages and action on those pages. Plot and art just dandy. Both the Heroes end up looking noble and I like that kind of a semi-ending.
With so many artists I was concerned the comic would have that "done by a committee" feel, but it didn't. Few single artists have the talent to draw all the props and characters included. It's my review so I'm adding a star because I love it.

Up until this volume, it has been mostly Cable with a little bit of Deadpool, the ratio was off, but with this volume there was a significant increase in Deadpool's panel time and that's never a bad time.

Such a great arc. Could legitimately be the end of the series but kind of glad it's not. Just great Deadpool storylines and shows how Cable's personality influences deadpool
