Official Press Release

Marvel is proud to announce that Cable #1, spinning out of the sold-out X-Men: Messiah CompleX event, has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level). Launching a bold new era for one of Marvel's most popular mutants, acclaimed, best-selling novelist Duane Swierczynski (Moon Knight Annual) and acclaimed artist Ariel Olivetti (Punisher War Journal) have sent Cable to the future with the young mutant baby…but they're not the only ones traveling through time. Just what does Bishop have planned? Where did he get that new, cybernetic arm from…and why?

To meet the overwhelming demand for this issue, Marvel is going back to press with Cable #1 Second Printing Variant, featuring the interior art of Olivetti on the new cover!

"Honestly, I'm stunned. Gobsmacked," said Swierczynski. "I'm also feeling grateful as hell right now -- grateful that Axel gave me a crack at this, and grateful to everyone on the X-team who brilliantly cued up the story in pages of Messiah CompleX. And I'm grateful that X-fans took a chance with it -- and I hope they stick with it over the next few issues, because there are a lot of surprises to come!"

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all issues of Cable, as the series ties directly into the red-hot Divided We Stand storyline and continues to have major repercussions for the X-Men! Now that's Bishop has found Cable, it's time for a rematch-and let's hope they survive the x-perience in Cable #2!

Plus, check out Cable's earliest adventures in Cable Classic Vol.1 TPB, in stores now!
