Marvel‘s latest news for their Marvel NOW! is for Cable and X-Force, a new series featuring, well… Cable and the X-Force! Dennis Hopeless and Salvador Larroca are teaming up to bring this new series that promises to be a blockbuster event. I am excited for Larroca’s pencils, but I feel that term “blockbuster” has been a bit overused. It’s like “epic” which no longer feels epic thanks to over-exposure. Oh well, Cable is back! Personally, I have some catching up to do before December. Last I really followed up on Cable was when he ran away with the little Messiah Complex girl who happened to be the first mutant born since the House of M insanity. I know, I know, I’m waaay behind, stop yelling at me! I’ll catch up! Here’s the press release:
The Future of CABLE AND X-FORCE Is Marvel NOW!
