After James Robinson’s departure from Marvel, the future of “Cable” was a little up in the air. The character, which has had both extremely popular and extremely fallow times over his lifespan, seemed due for a longer run than just the five issues it got under Robinson and Yildiray Cinar.
Enter Ed Brisson and John Malin.
Brisson (“Iron Fist,” “Comeback”) has been doing solid work at Marvel for a few years now, as has Malin (“Thunderbolts,” “New Warriors”), and they have tasked themselves with giving Cable a new New Mutants team to run with, featuring as diverse compatriots as Shatterstar and Doop. Malin is no stranger to Rob Liefeld creations, having worked on “Youngblood” and “Suprema” earlier in his career, so his visual style is a nice mix of the classic Cable stories and something a little looser and angular. It’s a style that fits this book really well, and we are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at their first issue, the re-numbered #150, which comes out on October 18.
