While a lot of the book is used for promotional reasons, there are still character developments. Often in Cable & Deadpool an issue ends with one of these moments. It happens when Deadpool is about to make a mercy kill and gets shot in the head by Bucky and Bob takes Deadpool in his arms before they teleport to another place in time. Since Deadpool has a healing factor like Wolverine, its not a big deal that hes shot - whats important is the choice Wade made thinking it was right, while Bobs reaction shows the degree of their relationship with each other.

My big problem with this issue though is the depiction of Bucky. Bucky is way too foulmouthed, quick-tempered, and trigger-happy for my liking. In trying to incorporate some of Brubaker's reimagining of the character, Nicieza goes a little overboard this time. Some of this could have been purely for comedic effect, but even then it doesn't really fit the rest of the issue, which is oddly pretty restrained in terms of humor (for a Deadpool title that is). Again, the concept is still a good one. I'm just hoping for better execution next time out. Read Full Review
