    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza May 31, 2017

    So, how does Cable #1 stack up to my expectations? It doesnt. It exceeds them, giving me a comic that made me a Cable fan. I look forward to being a fan for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Ben McElveen Jun 2, 2017

    I could have read it, enjoyed it and then with most X-men titles, forgotten about it but that final page makes me want to return for more. Read Full Review

    Cable immediately establishes itself as one of the stronger additions to Marvel's ResurrXion lineup. This first issue offers a tightly paced, attractive romp as the cyborg hero hunts a mysterious enemy across time. And fortunately, the book is able to add just enough depth and complexity to its main character to balance out the light, breezy storytelling approach. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Jun 4, 2017

    Cable #1 doesn't do a whole lot to give you a backstory for Cable, it instead assumes you have a knowledge of the character and throws you right into the action. If you're a brand new reader to Cable, you may be lost on who Cable is, but I'm a long-time Cable fan and so far I'm lost for different reasons, which is the point. I feel as though I'm traveling through time with Cable and the time jumps have me disoriented, but I'm confident that Robinson and Pacheco will clear everything up"over time of course.

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 6, 2017

    Comics are better when the world of the X-Men is healthy. Over the last few years that has not been the case. They might not be all the way back but with this series, Jean Grey, and X-Men: Blue there is a lot to enjoy in the world of the X-Men. Now all Marvel needs to do is keep it going and not just reboot again in a couple months. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Don Alsafi Jun 2, 2017

    Early in the issue Cable stands at the entrance of an Old West saloon, proclaiming to the patrons that there's "no need for introductions." Regrettably, it's hard not to feel the creators took that sentiment to heart. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Robert Struble Jul 3, 2017

    I want to give this one a higher rating. I really do. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series, but I think for a premier issue"there just wasn't enough happening here. Not enough hints dropped. Not enough development. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jun 1, 2017

    With a promising future in Deadpool 2, courtesy of Josh Brolin, Cable is one of those characters whose profile is on the rise. Cable #1 puts him at the front of the batting order and shows off the potential of what he can bring to the table. With big guns, a bad attitude, and a blatant disregard for time paradoxes, he has all the tools he needs to be a major player for the X-men. At a time when Hugh Jackman has retired and Deadpool is the new adamantium standard, the timing couldn't be better. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L May 31, 2017

    Overall this book just exudes average. Hopefully in the next issue or two it will really pull us into the story and give us something to really be excited for. For now I'm just happy that this series is just monthly because if it was a twice monthly book like many of the other new X-books it really would be a let down then. I'm going to give this one a few more issues to see if it finds it's groove but as first issues go this one was just plain average. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 1, 2017

    Overall, everything in the story works together but it feels like a story with the pages that might inform the reader as to what is actually going on completely missing. This is not the best way to deliver a debut issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 6, 2017

    Cable #1 showed some promise and fun in its first few pages, but it falls apart in the second half with confusing fight sequences and an ending that is just tiresome. Give this one a hard pass. Read Full Review
