I thought that but couldn't find the info.  Though, I could see how it would be around when its sales were the same or less than ANXF.  I think those "product names" do not work the same as the "Xmen" name.

I thought they abandoned that look two years ago? Oh well, too little too late. If they had him as a stable recurring character it might bumped sales up 5k or so. I'm steadily becoming "ok" with not reading the books any longer... On a high note, I watched GotG twice since I bought it.

Okay. I am really happy to see that Gambit is getting an appearance in Storm's book.  :smitten: If we're lucky it will be a real full appearance, with a lot of interaction between them, cause they play really well together, and have such a sweet history together. If it's just her saving 'loser Gambit' who gets to show up in like the last couple pages, I'll be super disappointed.

That being said.... please tell me I'm just delusional about something else....



That's the image for New Avengers promo for issue 31 or 32. No description is given, or as far as I can tell any indication who the hooded guy is, but it is apparently tied to the "Time Running Out" event. Here's where it weirds me out. That coloration and the eyes are very similar to Deathbit. I know that supposedly that whole Death persona was wiped out when Angel removed or turned off the other Death seeds, or whatever.... it was a little confusing. However, if time travel is involved, or alternate timestreams or part of his power return thanks to his brain restructuring from Faiza also fixed Deathbit, then it could resurface. Keeping in mind that at the highest potential of his powers he can control time and space, could Gambit, or an alternate timeline version of his Witness persona have gone crazy Deathbit and be bringing an "End to Time"?  XD

Yeah, I'm very happy to see this too.  I can't wait to see Gambit and Storm together again!

Thankfully no. That deos not have anything to do with Deathbit(I would be very happy to never see Deathbit again).  They are the Black Swans that have had a big presence in Hickman's New Avengers-

The hooded figure seems to be Rabum Alal. The central antagonist of Hickman's Avengers Saga and the being that started the incursions.

I want Deathbit to go away for a long time.

Yeah... satellite books just don't jump out to retailers to buy as often, which really hurts the sales numbers. ANXF a lot of people didn't even know was a thing for months because their local stores only picked up a handful of issues, if that, sold them out and other would be buyers never knew about it. Don't get me wrong. Not saying that is the reason it is getting cancelled. A lot more of that is  because once the tradebooks came out most people stop buying the single issues. So there was no reason for comic retailers to stock more, and since they control more of the numbers that Marvel actually bothers to track, you end up with a ridiculously low sales number, regardless of how many people actually enjoy the series.

Just realized the preview says Storm is coming to bail out Gambit because he's in over his head... ::sigh::

Of all the characters, I wonder what Storm will be able to help Gambit with that gee, I don't know an entire International Thieves Guild can't get him out of? Whats the point of being king if you cant rely on underlings? These are the times I wished we still had the ongoing. If they were going to allow Asmus to put the man so high, they could have at least set some stuff into play, such as forcing all the active super-thieves, hero or villain to come underneath a single banner. Not work together, but still have to answer to someone/something, namely the ITG. It'd make sense for super thieves to given out "territories" and/or assigned stomping grounds to cut down on violent interactions or turf wars. Since they are trying to give Storm some edge, she could be brought in on it along with the likes of; Fantomex, Blackcat, Lila Chiney (when Earthbound), Boom Boom, Swordsman, Beetle, Black Fox etc... I mean if your going to have a shared universe, might as well use it for more than bombarding us with crossover events.

Oh how we miss you Asmus.

Asmus is also a stand up comedian too.  :)  Wished Marvel had found a project for him too.

again he left, it wasnt a matter of he didnt have any work , he, said on twitter at the time that when the Gambit series was done he was done with Marvel, his wife or girlfriend had just given birth so he wanted to focus on the home life, he had a success with Gambit a series no one had hopes for, im sure he could have chosen another project, he chose not to
