    I understand my review of this book has seemed fairly negative, however, I did enjoy the issue as a whole. There were some really interesting and different parts, including the character of Emil acting as the narrator for the arc, which for the first time in the series history has flitted away from either Hope or Nathan. Preview material for next month also has me excitedly awaiting future storylines and after Messiah War I didn’t think I would be saying that about the time spanning Nathan and Hope Summers anytime soon!

    It's difficult to be overwhelmingly critical of a book like Cable #17. It's clear that Duane Swierczynski has a plan for the title and some imaginative concepts at play, but in order to really blossom they needed more than just the two issues they were allotted. The result is an issue that feels cluttered and rushed. Read Full Review

    Hopefully the next month or two will kick "Cable" into something different. Honestly, at this point I think Swierczynski has done just about all he can with the "into the future" concept, and I'd love to see him tell stories with them in the present day. Maybe he'll prove me wrong and something great is just around the corner. For the moment, though, this feels like "Cable" is just treading water. Read Full Review
