Review: Cable: The Nemesis Contract – A Jumbled Mix of Entertaining Stories
Hey there! It’s Tuesday, which means that new comics are hitting bookstores all across the world. If you’re looking for some great reads, you can head to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or any other online bookshop. Today, we’re going to be talking about a trade called “The Nemesis Contract” from Cable Comics. This collection includes issues 59 through 70, annual 99, and X-Man number 45 through 47. It was written by Joe Casey, Carl Bowers, Michael Higgins, and Terry Cavanagh, and illustrated by a team of talented artists.
This collection takes place in the year 1993, a time when I had stopped reading comics. So, it was interesting for me to dive into this particular era of Cable’s story. It’s worth noting that there’s a lot of history and continuity involved in these stories, so if you’re not familiar with the character or the previous events, it might be a bit confusing. One of the new characters introduced in this collection is Blacksmith, whom I was unfamiliar with, but it didn’t hinder my overall enjoyment of the book.
“The Nemesis Contract” is a collection of various story arcs, each with its own unique twist. From Shield agents trying to capture Cable to the return of Strife, there’s plenty of action and adventure. The artwork is reminiscent of the 90s style, with influences from comic legends like Jack Kirby. Some of the art is fantastic, while others are a bit lackluster, which is to be expected with multiple artists involved.
Overall, “The Nemesis Contract” is an entertaining read, especially if you’re a fan of Cable or interested in diving into this particular era of X-Men comics. It’s priced at $34.99, which may be a bit steep for some, but if you can find it at a discounted price, it’s definitely worth a read. Remember to support your local comic shops if possible, and happy reading!
