Wolverine/Cable: Guts and Glory (1999)

This is about as awful as a ‘90s comic can get.  Multiple inkers, small heads, giant arms, no real “story” per se but lots of little details about chronology that are confusing and probably contradict each other—but the whole X-verse is so convoluted I can’t tell for sure.

This story is a flashback to the early days of Cable.  It shows the first time he met Wolverine (I think) but other than that it’s a standard “guys from Cable’s future timeline are coming back to kill him in this timeline” story.

Vulture is in it, too, for no real reason.

Joe Casey is the writer, so it’s a solid script and there are some interesting takes on the effects of war on combatants, but other than that, this is for completists only.
