Ten Days of Cable & Deadpool: Sorry, and #50 preview

Posted by Reboot on February 19, 2008

Cable & Deadpool #50 cover

Been having computer problems over the past few days that knocked out my scanner. Combined with a broken keyboard (and having Amazon completely %^&*ing fail to send me the replacement I ordered…), running through this in time’s become impossible. I’ll still run through this when I can, but doing it before #50 came out just hasn’t been an option in the end 😦

Otherwise, here’s the preview of Cable & Deadpool #50: The End – http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=13006

Ten Days of Cable & Deadpool: #2 – Strategic Advantage

Posted by Reboot on February 11, 2008

With the second arc, with Patrick Zircher firmly ensconced as the book’s artist and pressure from Marvel to keep to Bill Jemas’ sloow pacing regulations relieved, the book got a lot stronger – and the lawyers got involved. The arc had been trailed at the end of #6, and solicited, as “The Passion of the Cable” (a reference to Mel Gibson’s Biblical adaptation “The Passion of the Christ”.) Exactly why they took fright isn’t exactly clear, but the arc ended up split into two parts – “The Burnt Offering” from #7-10 and “Thirty Pieces” from #11-12.

And there’s a moment in the arc, from #9, no amount of brain-bleach will ever remove:

Moment 2: “Strategic Advantage.”

Ten Days of Cable & Deadpool: #1 – Blow my mind

Posted by Reboot on February 10, 2008

In ten days time, Cable & Deadpool #50 will come out, ending the series. So I thought I’d run through ten moments from the series that stuck in my mind for one reason or another, in rough chronological order to commemorate it.

The first arc, If Looks Could Kill, wasn’t a particularly strong arc. The series started months late because the original artist (Mark Brooks) was assigned to something else temporarily – only to be reassigned again after two issues ANYWAY in the end – and the arc was a bit padded. It wasn’t horrible, but not great. Still I wanted a moment from it, particularly from the two Fabian/Brooks issues. So I went with this, basically the first moment the title characters are on-panel together in the series.

Moment 1: “Blow my mind!”/”You DID tell me to.”
