This July, series writers Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler help bring the ongoing to a close with the ‘Past Fears’ storyline.
The day solicits come out for any comic company is always one of those hold-your-breath-in-case-you-find-out-your-favorite-book-is-ending days. Unfortunately for fans of Cable, that day is today. Marvel is ending the book with Cable #159 this July, which is the last issue of the current ‘Past Fears’ arc, written by Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler.
Nadler, on his Twitter today, wrote, “Sad to say CABLE #159 is mine and [Zac Thompson’s] last issue. We knew this going in, but we put everything we had into our short run. Hopefully, we’ll get to play with Daddy Dayspring again in the future. Until then, enjoy our last couple issue.”
Thompson, on his Twitter, added, “Marvel’s solicits for August are out and… as you can probably tell CABLE is canceled.” He continued on to say, “”We knew from the get-go that we were doing the final 5 issues of Cable. That’s why ‘Past Fears’ is a celebration of the character’s history and many different eras.”
“We both love Nathan Dayspring A’skani Summers and will write him again someday soon. The support and response to our Cable arc has been incredible. X-Men fans are the best. We will cherish this opportunity for the rest of our lives,” he concluded.
Thompson also shared a few of his favorite things that he’s written for the soon to be ending series, and it’s evident how much he loves the character.
