    If nothing else, "Messiah War" is a massive shot in the arm for Cable. For the past year it's often seemed that Duane Swierczynski was just creatively twiddling his thumbs until this point, and now the book feels like it matters for once. But in the grand scheme, it's a relatively low-key installment of the story that doesn't move things along very much, albeit one with that does have more good moments than the average Cable issue.

    There's some fun stuff here, especially if you like Deadpool, but really the stakes aren't raised any higher, and this issue doesn't advance things much further than the prologue already did. Read Full Review

    At least the issue concludes with the promise of some action next issue. When I hear the names ‘Cable’ and ‘X-Force’ used in the same sentence, images of early ‘90s comic book excess spring from my imagination. I think about weirdly shaped guns, gritted teeth, shaky morals, and shoulder pads. Most of all, I think about action. So far, “Messiah War” doesn’t live up to its pedigree, but Swierczynski, Kyle, and Yost have five more chapters to turn me on. Read Full Review

    Cable #13 pretty much justified and made real my fears about what would happen when Swierczynski and Olivetti took the reigns of an interesting story. I look forward to what's coming next in the Messiah War, but at the same time, not really because of anything that took place in its second chapter. Consider me currently disappointed, but optimistic for the future. Read Full Review
