Fabian Nicieza said:How about starting with a double page spread that ISN'T DP fighting? How's that for a dramatic change of pace! ;-)
Seriously, I'm a huge fan of "you pays your $ you gets your opinions," so repetition of jokes, character beats, Recap Page use, etc. is all fair game, but how can you think that Cable lacks any "real direction" -- ?
That I don't get. The book has been all about Cable's direction -- and often story arcs deal with how he has to work through and around setbacks, etc.
But you'll see lots of the pieces you feel are confusing clarified in #25... advanced in #26-27 (by taking a look back!) and more of it again during the Civil War tie-ins and the upcoming "Domino Principle" arc.
If you get Cable, then you get that what he does can't be "done in one" -- it's not a one issue or even a ten issue thing. By the very nature of the character, he is about a much longer term vision than that.
So I guess you just have to cross your fingers like me and hope the book lasts 1,000 issues and every single writer and editor at Marvel are long-since passed away except for me so that I can tell the story in its entirety. ;-)
A bit of what Fabian says about Civil War and Cable's future.
Comixfan member said:Are we to assume from this that you have Cable's story fully mapped out (at least in your mind)?
Fabian Nicieza said:That would be a fairly safe assumption.
Mind you, it is MY mind we're talking about, so in and of itself, that makes the whole thing pretty dicey...
