Fabian Nicieza and Reilly Brown, who worked together on 2004's "Cable and Deadpool" series, will reunite for "Deadpool and Cable: Split Second," a new six-issue digital first series in Marvel's Infinite Comics format.
During an interview with Polygon, Nicieza explained that the series "is about struggling through a life of regret and struggling through the soulful tug of conscience that nags at us as a species, tasking us to ask of ourselves, 'Is this all I am? Is this all I can be? Do I have the courage to be more?'"
"Also, Deadpool shoots a lot of guys," Brown added.
"Split Second has what any good story featuring Deadpool and Cable needs to have," Nicieza continued, including mercenary action, bromance, a fun new villain, time travel confusion and severed body parts among those ingredients.
"The time travel aspect of the story gives us the opportunity to use some really cool storytelling techniques, and we're going to be doing some stuff that will really melt brains," Brown shared. "Or at least cause huge headaches at all the logical impossibilities, like any good time travel story!"
"Cable and Deadpool" arrives digitally this October. The series will also be released in printed form this December, with two digital installments included in each print issue.
