This book picks up right on the heels of X-Men #199. Rogue has absorbed the minds of the Hecatomb, Sabretooth is free and causing havoc, and Deadpool is ready to have a little fun. This issue is pretty good, and is considerably better than the main story it’s crossing into. (In fact, having read this, I finally understand exactly what happened in X-Men.)

Much of the issue is concerned with Cable ruminating on the “death of his dream,” while a far more interesting segment deals with Deadpool fighting off Sabretooth long enough for Domino and one of the survivors of the massacre to escape. For the first time in months, Cable and Deadpool get more or less balanced amounts of screen time this issue, and their stories even wind up converging.

Reilly Brown and Jeremy Freeman do an okay job on the artwork. The Deadpool/Sabretooth fight is particularly good, while the rest of it is effective enough to tell the story, if nothing spectacular.

This is a pretty solid issue, and like I said, it actually helps clarify the X-Men storyline, so if you’re still scratching your heads over that mess, picking up this book can only help you out.
