Marvel's ongoing Cable series will come to an end with July's #159. Co-writer Zac Thompson confirmed the cancellation via Twitter following Cable's absence from Marvel's just-released August 2018 solicitations .
"Marvel's solicits for August are out and... as you can probably tell Cable is canceled. But [co-writer Lonnie Nadler] and I are bringing back SP//Dr with [artist Jake Wyatt] so don't cry for us," said Thompson, referring to the just announced Edge of Spider-Geddon miniseries. "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," Thompson concluded.
Cable #159 is due out on shelves July 18. Here's the full solicitation:
