Official Press Release
Hey, True Believer!
In just three short weeks (on September 12th, to be exact), CABLE #97 will hit the stands. So what's so special about this issue, you ask? That issue, my inquisitive friend, begins the run by the new creative team of writer David Tischman (American Century) and penciler Igor Korday (Batman/Tarzan). They're yet another pair of extremely talented creators that we've invited to take a fresh look at one of our most popular characters. In fact, just feast your eyes on these four pages of black-and-white art by Igor from CABLE #97 and you'll get a taste of the new flavor that they're bringing to the son of Cyclops.

* THE SCOOP: The new creative team of writer David Tischman (American
Century) and Igor Kordey (Batman/Tarzan) begin a new chapter for the
* THE STORY: The guerilla army known as the Shining Path is back in action,
and Nathan Summers fights a one-man war in the jungles of Peru to stop their
devastating agenda. How much cocaine do you need to lead a revolution? CABLE
changes the rules of engagement -- exploding in a new, geopolitical
direction for a nonstop battle of bombs and babes!
* TISCHMAN SPEAKS: "CABLE is going to become much more of a real world,
geo-political book," the writer explained to Newsarama. "Cable is a guy who
believes that the war between man and mutant has already begun and that only
he can stop it. To that end, he's going to be traveling around the globe,
inserting himself into current political hotspots, and forcing himself into
those conflicts. I think this book is different than most books on the
market right now. We will be using politics as a backdrop, but good stories
are always good stories, wherever they take place. I think that this is just
an aspect of Cable that has not yet been explored. When you strip everything
away, the only thing Cable knows how to do is be a soldier. He believes in
his principles, he has seen the bad side of the future, and he's desperately
trying to make sure that doesn't happen. He's a solider who has made the
decision that he needs to be proactive. He makes his own rules, and this is
a book where the ends justify the means."
* THE FORMAT: 32 pages, with ads. On Sale Sept. 12th $2.25
