In the extra-sized Cable #6, featuring a longer story from acclaimed novelist Duane Swierczynski (Immortal Iron Fist), along with artists Ariel Olivetti and Michel Lacombe, presents a story of a father and son separated by generations, but sharing the same missionâ€”saving mutantkind. In the present, Cyclops looks for a sign that he made the right decision, while in the future, his son Cable is still on the run from his former ally Bishop. What will Cyclops & The X-Men do to help Cable? Will it be enough? And will he come to regret it?
Cable #6 will sell for $3.99.
Rob Liefeld actually draws a better ape than person. Huh.
That’s not the present! Cyclops and Emma sleep in a round bed now!
Maybe I/m going to sound like a Negative Nancy, or just a whiner, but…Jesus, I sometimes forget how much I hate Cable and Bishop. Totally turned me off of X-Men comics. Even Gambit isn’t half as annoying.
