Cable #1 Breaks Out the Big Guns This Spring!

Lock and load, True Believer – Cable is back, and better than ever! Brand new mission, brand new creators, non-stop action! Marvel has announce the all-new Cable #1 – coming at you this Spring from Eisner Award-winning writer James Robinson and blockbuster artist Carlos Pacheco!

With all of time hanging in the balance, there’s only one man with the skills to save it. A new foe has emerged, bending time and manipulating history to his own sinister ends. Picking up a threat to the time-stream and the universe itself, Cable sets off on a high octane, history-spanning chase to save reality as we know it! From a six-gun duel at high noon to a swordfight in Feudal Japan, Cable must fight to keep history from unraveling!

In an interview Robinson said:

One of the things about Cable is he’s a ‘time warrior’. Time travel is part of his make-up in almost every aspect of his history – no pun intended. This series will be Cable on a race against time to fix time. And in the course of Cable’s mission, we’ll see him in a lot of great time periods like 15th century Japan, WWI, the Stone Age, Victorian England and on and on, with those time periods made more crazy and sci-fi by time being fractured by the villain of our series.

This Spring, walk softly…and carry a big gun! The chase through the time-stream is on!

The first issue features a cover by Dale Keown.
