Swierczynski Brings Deadpool and Cable Together Again

Deadpool and Cable, Together Again


Cable is dead, and no one’s more devastated than his old friend and partner, Deadpool (a.k.a. Wade Wilson, a.k.a. the Merc With the Mouth, a.k.a. the guy who’s in pretty much every other solicit this month). Sitting by Cable’s grave, Deadpool struggles to find the perfect way to honor his fallen mutant pal. Then… light bulb! Deadpool remembers Rumekistan, the troubled and totally fictional European country that Cable once tried to turn into a Utopia on earth. Deadpool travels there to establish up a Cable museum! A Cable amusement park! A Cable cable TV show! But Rumekistan isn’t quite what it used to be, and Deadpool’s appearance only makes things worse. To set things right, Deadpool will have to do more than just honor his old friend -- he must become him!

Greg Rucka in Dallas at Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen

Dubya's book-signing wasn't the only big book event in Dallas last week. DHS Literary hosted a happy hour book-signing party at Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen last Tuesday night to celebrate the publication of New York Times best-selling author Greg Rucka's new novel, THE LAST RUN. Rucka was in Dallas on his book tour, after a signing at Murder By The Book in Houston on Monday night. Barnes & Noble was on hand to sell books and Zeus Comics was there with a pile of Greg's beautiful graphic novels for sale, too. The Rathbun's staff did a fantastic job with the food and drink for the event, and a large crowd turned out to welcome Greg to town and buy books. Thanks, everybody!
