Call them a duo with a special kind of them the odd couple but with them 90s comics distilled down into two characters-DEADPOOL AND CABLE ARE BACK, BABY! That's right-The Merc with the Mouth and the Soldier with the Scowl are together again in this all-new series! When Cable gets a vision of a terrible future set off by the death of one man, he knows he must protect him no matter what! I'll get you three guesses who's been hired to kill that guy. Go on, guess. The fan favorite team of Fabian Nicieza & Reilly Brown have reunited to get the gang back together-and it feels so good!

    The story takes a 180-degree turn in a direction that will bring things a little too close to home for both of them. Read Full Review

    While Deadpool has been well-served these past few years in his ongoing series and various mini-series, some fans will always pine for the days of Cable & Deadpool. Well, that series is back in every way that matters. This mini-series not only reunites the Dynamic Duo, it also brings back writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Reilly Brown. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cliff Coats Feb 22, 2016

    Nicieza and Brown return to give us another story about Deadpool and Cable. This time around they face a mysterious enemy as they once again try to preserve the timeline. As always goofy cornball antics and humorous one liners abound as the two take jabs at one another and save the day. . .maybe. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jan 4, 2016

    Despite the nod to '90s and a retro vibe, "Deadpool & Cable: Split Second" doesn't read very differently from any other Deadpool miniseries of late, though Nicieza was the writer on the original run of "X-Force" after Rob Liefeld left and has a long history with these characters. Typical for a Deadpool vehicle, the story here is much weaker than Deadpool and Cable's first encounters in the pages of "X-Force," where -- amid all the big guns and gritted teeth -- Nicieza gave both characters a real arc. The jokes here don't mine this material closely enough to trigger deeper nostalgia, and they don't justify the longer page count by themselves. Read Full Review

    The comic is a throwback in many ways, and that's not a good thing. Both characters have come far and have been done better in many ways. While some are all about nostalgia, I myself have moved along and look for something a little bit more in my comics. Read Full Review

    Deadpool and Cable's new team up looks like it will have some promise. Deadpool is done well, it feels like the right character and there are a few character that appear that we often associate with Deadpool. Cable's role stays minor for this issue and you'll see why if you read it. Not a bad issue considering I got it for free.

    Based on the length and arrangement of the comic, I suspect this was two digital comic issues smushed together; so it gets a bit weird when the title comics up in the middle and Cable starts repeating himself. Other than that, it works great, and it's a lot of fun. Deadpool is his usual self but the story is more grounded which I feel brings out the best in Deadpool, as opposed to when other writers take him too far.
