Cable gets a farewell in this December’s “X-Men: The Exterminated” #1 one-shot
Cable is like the most Nineties character you can get. Everything about him is a distillation of comic tropes from the decade: cool-sounding name, huge guns, glowy eye, pouches. He has it all, and yeah, he’s kind of awesome.
Hes also dead now, and this December, the X-Men will mourn. Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler-- the writing team behind his incredibly successful solo series-- reunite for the one-shot X-Men: The Exterminated #1, and legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont is on board for a backup story too. Check out the details below.
A Death In The Family! X-MEN: THE EXTERMINATED #1
Featuring a special back-up story from Chris Claremont!
New York, NY—September 11, 2018—Cable has fallen, and the events of Extermination have left a hole in the X-Men family. What comes next??
In the wake of Cable’s death, his adopted daughter Hope Summers is attempting to deal with her loss – but a dark and terrifying path beckons her, and the X-Men’s own Jean Grey may be her only hope for survival!
This December, CABLE creative team Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler re-team for a special one-shot to say good-bye to the time-traveling, fan-favorite mutant – featuring covers by Geoff Shaw and a special back-up story that celebrates the life of Nathan Summers, from legendary X-Men series writer Chris Claremont!
“This issue is our chance to say a proper farewell to Cable, to honor his legacy, and to really see the immense impact the time travelling mutant had on those closest to him,” said Nadler. “Most importantly, it's about how the Summers family copes with grief, and the difficulty of forging ahead. The issue is packed with fan favorite X-Men from all different eras, and we're super excited to be bringing them together, despite the somber occasion.”
