It’s hard to keep track of him when there are so many versions floating around the timestream, but Marvel seems to have lost its Cable, at least the one with a solo ongoing series, in their August solicitations.
While Cable and Deadpool are reunited for an Annual in August, the regular Cable ongoing is nowhere to be found, following the conclusion of the run by Lonnie Nadler, Zac Thompson, and German Peralta, which promised the revelation of Cable’s “dark secret” — something to do with the origin of Metus — and which is collected in August in trade paperback.
Will that have been the finale for this volume of Cable? And with Cable hot off the success of Deadpool 2, currently burning up the box office charts, can Marvel afford to keep him on the shelf for long? Maybe a Fresh Start in the Fall?
Check out the solicits below:
