    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Mar 11, 2020

    Cable #1 is a comic that somehow manages to add new elements to the Krakoa concept, sneak in a few laughs, and lay track for the X-Mens near future. Its a light and amusing read, too, a self-aware mutant action comedy with ramifications for the larger plot. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Mar 11, 2020

    Duggan's teased storyline and space warriors shifts the mutant focus from humankind to something on a much grander scale. That grand scale and luxurious artwork makes Cable #1a perfect jumping on point for casual X-men fans and an essential pickup for readers keeping up with the inhabitants of Krakoa. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 11, 2020

    This is definitely Cable like we have never seen him before. Up to this point I didn't think twice about this younger version of him, and yet this first issue breathes new life into what we were only seeing on the surface. Cable #1 is easy to get into, offers a new perspective on Krakoa, and provides excellent set-up for big developments coming for this island. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Mar 17, 2020

    Gotta give a big shout out to Gerry Duggan with that sword move. Not only does it help round out who Cable is, but it sets the stage for a wild, time romp, robotic showdown. Cable #1 is a book everyone should be checking out, even if you feel like you've hit your “Dawn of X” threshold. It's that good. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Mar 10, 2020

    CABLE #1 was entertaining and filled with Duggan's subtlety dry humor. Once again, Gerry Duggan creates a story that's easy to interpret, manageable for a new reader to jump in and follow, and straightforward even though some of the character voices appeared off at times and old characters are reimagined.

    Cable #1 doesn't break the wheel, but it shows us a side of the X-Men that has otherwise gone untold in this new era. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Mar 11, 2020

    Overall this book is an over the top adventure that is such a fun read. It’s more on the comedic side and fully welcome it. The art alone makes this book shine, and I can’t wait for more! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Mar 12, 2020

    All I have to say is slick move for the franchise for fans that have been wanting more Cable, and the other fans who have been wondering what's been going on with the promised ROM movie. The last word we have heard is that the Ready Player One writer Zak Penn will adapt ROM: Spaceknight for Paramount. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Mar 11, 2020

    Written by Marauders scribe Gerry Duggan, the tone he seems to have settled on here is "Saturday morning cartoon" meets Saved by the Bell, and it's surprisingly perfect? Straight away on page one, I almost expected him to say something along the lines of "So you're probably wondering how I got into this predicament," or, "I'm Cable, and my life is pretty crazy!"

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Sardo Mar 10, 2020

    CABLE #1 hits a home run on some pages and on others might need some batting practice. If you are a fan of young Cable, this is a must-read, whereas a general X-Men fan might wait for the second to see if there is a better hook for the readers. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Mar 12, 2020

    Cable #1 ends, like all good first issues, with a realcliffhanger of a final page that promises to change everything for itstitular character. Without revealing too much, it's a head-turning yetnot unexpected development that is portrayed pretty perfectly by Dugganand Noto. The Cable series is off to a good start and, assumingthe story picks up on the promise laid out here, could quickly shoot itsway up the ranks of the Dawn of X titles. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 10, 2020

    For those looking for the kind of classic Cable comic from your youth, you might be disappointed with this new series - but for fans of some other ‘90s-era staples, you might find yourself pleasantly surprised. Young Nathan Summers feels almost like a blank slate in this bold new era, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing - while this comic won’t set the world on fire, it’s a fun and entertaining diversion that winds up working far better than you might expect.

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Mar 12, 2020

    Cable is fearless and I think every brave leader needs a little bit of fear to make him cautious. I hope to see him fail so he can overcome the obstacle and learn the important lesson. Read Full Review

    This first installment of Cable has an intriguing cliffhanger, but just doesn't do enough to allow the title to stand out. Read Full Review
