Me, too, but these things usually die around 12 issues or so.

In this day and age, it doesn't hurt that it's $2.99. That might be a huge boon for the series, where before it never really mattered.

Still, my dream right now would be for Remender to do something with Gambit. If only.

I like this book. Much didn't happen in issue two but just to see Gambit using he's non powered skills is just refreshing. He's a thief like Storm and that needs to be remembered.

Hey peoples! Anyone miss me? I've been away from the Gambit topic for too long.

I think this new comics series is just great until so far. I think Mann is a great artist and it's been too long since Gambit was drawn in such a good way. So, yeah exciting times. I like the story too. Finally we get to see Gambit being how he is supposed to be...

There's just one thing that worries me (see below)...

I'm not sure, but is Mann quitting the art from issue 5 on?
Because that art below is just horrible...

Mann is on alternating arcs, i think because he likes to take time on his pages.

I think that's just a cover though, the art inside is by someone else.

Hi guys, just wanted to say to someone (lol) that today, walking by the "bouquinists" or book sellers, at the border of the Seine river in Paris, I started rummaging through some comics this guy was selling and I found X-Men 25 February 1999 and X-Men 26 March 1999. In the firs one, Rogue and Gambit are in the cover and in the second one, it's Gambit. My dream come true!! And they're all mine now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They're in french though, but it's okay, I'm taking a french course here

Yes Pete Wisdom and MI-13, I've missed them. Wait a minute, who's actually in MI13 nowadays, Blades back in the States and Captain Britains in the Secret Avengers??.....

Nope, sure didn't. And after the turds of Dark X-Men, Soldier Zero, Stormwatch, and Demon Knights, I'll never go back and read Captain Britain & MI:13 either.

"Bad news: Gambit #3 is not coming out on 9/12 as originally said. It'll be 9/26. Good news: While Clay Mann & I were signing around LA this week, he gave me THIS "

Bummer news, but at least we have some eye candy to look at... for the girls among us.

Too bad the bath towel is blocking our view.

Hold it outside of a certain King of Alatais how many male superheroes run around in revealing costumes lol? When that happens it may be on an equal level.
