    While it may seem like I've pointed more bad than good about this title, don't take that to mean I didn't enjoy it. It's just that both the writing and art aren't what's typically found in an X-Men book, so I didn't want anybody to go into the series with the wrong expectations. If you're cool with that, then you have a fun and decently engaging story ready for you. Read Full Review

    The overall direction of Cable isn't damaged irreparably or anything, this just feels like decompression at its worst. I'm not sure a book like Cable can afford to bore people for multiple issues without finding itself void of a readership. Read Full Review

    Cable #2 is a serviceable read. It isn't bad, but at the same time, it isn't anything special. I still feel that this title has the potential to be a neat read. I'm willing to stick it out for another two or three issues to see if this title can get going and make a compelling case to earn a spot on The Revolution's permanent pull list. Read Full Review

    The second issue of Cable really improves upon the first, and the momentum is building. Swiercynski's writing is strong, and he definitely has enough material to cover a compelling first arc or two. I am still a bit wary about where this series can go in the long run, but depending on what the X-editorial squad is going for, they could have a lot of fun pitting Cable against Bishop on different eras before the idea runs its course.

    Even hillbillies from the future can't save this comic. And if they can't, maybe nothing can. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 2, 2008

    Terrible story, terrible art, horrendous dialogue and the most retarded explanations ever imaginable and time travel logic that makes my head spin make this one of the worst books I've ever read. Why didn't Bishop just go back in time and kill the freaking baby's mother when no one was around? He knew where it took place. He could warp in, kill the mother and warp out, no fuss, no muss. Since when can you time travel at will like this? Why doesn't he just go into the future and double check and see if the girl kills everyone and is the anti-Christ he thinks it is? Why the million jumps to find Cable and these retarded plot twists? I give up. I could keep this up all day. Read Full Review
