“X-Force” are on the hunt for (Kid) Cable as a new series launches this December
This announcement made me laugh, in the best way. Any time you add “...for revenge!” to the end of a proclamation, you have my attention.
Marvel have just announced that the original X-Force lineup will reassemble in a brand new series launching this December, all as they seek out answers after the death of Cable. Writer Ed Brisson will be joined by Dylan Burnett, the artist for Cosmic Ghost Rider (which is crazybonkers insane and amazing), so be sure to add this to your pull list.
X-FORCE Is Back!
Featuring an all-new team and all-new story from Ed Brisson and Dylan Burnett!
New York, NY—September 13, 2018—This December, the X-FORCE reassembles…for revenge! Extermination writer Ed Brisson and Cosmic Ghost Rider artist Dylan Burnett are teaming up with Young Guns artist Pepe Larraz to bring you Domino, Cannonball, Shatterstar, Boom Boom, and Warpath in an all-new adventure!
“Coming out of EXTERMINATION, Domino, Shatterstar, Cannonball, and Warpath are reeling from the loss of their mentor and have unanswered questions,” Brisson told Marvel.com in an interview. “They're on the hunt for this new Kid Cable to get those answers—some want his head, some just want to talk to him to find out what the hell is going on. Is this really their Cable? Is this an impostor?”
“X-Force has always been the one X-team that stood out the most for me,” added Burnett. “A lot of my favorite mutants have belonged to it over the years (namely Cable and Psylocke) but being able to bring back the original lineup in a new way is a huge honor. They're just a bunch of badasses. It's dope. I'm stoked.”
X-Force #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on December 26.
