Looks alright, just read that Apocalypse is central to the book and Rictor is one of the writers favourites. Lets hope they give Gambit a decent role


One of the pros for me is that he's with Jubilee.


I an already see I will end up being disappointed.  Apocalypse and Deathbit seems like a natural fit here but can't remember the last time Gambit got real development in a team book.

HOX was awesome. Of course no Gambit in it but book is very beautiful and fresh.

Wrote an article about the books. I don't know who Tini Howard is really and from her track record and past work, I don't trust her. Like at all. This would have been a better book for like Asmus or even Thompson who both at least have some knowledge and practice using Excalibur lore. Books looks as weird as her resume and Gambit placed in the wrong hands can turn into a full blown clown. I'll give it a shot, but I'm weary.

Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

Good article.
I don't trust her too. It sounds a lot like X-Men Red for me aka Jean and her amazing friends. I don't want secret solos as team books anymore.


It seems main idea of Magic was pitched by Hickman so I hope this book will have at least some fresh feeling as HOX had.
Of course, Asmus would be the best for it.

I really like the art. Looks great.

Lol, I still can’t see either of those, but I know what pic you are talking about. ;). I know nothing about the writer, but the art will be pretty!

I hate to be so unbearably cynical and negative, but in those panels is it just me, or does it look like Rogue is doing all the talking with Apocalypse and Gambit is just sort of standing there?  Obviously we can't tell without dialogue but you know, I've been burned a lot lately. I just hope there's a conversation before too long about how the last time Gambit and Apocalypse were together there was the whole Death thing.

Nah, I understand where you are coming from. The more thought I've given to this, the more hesitant I feel. There is just a huge power gap between Betsy, who may or may not be a dual Omega level mutant, Rogue, who can take all the stuff, Apoc... and then you have the rest of the team. Its possible that power balances will be different in Otherworld but its not like we have been given stunning displays of skill all that often. Just seems that there is a large chance that powers will equal plot advancement.

Gambit is the best h2h here and has a lot of skills to shine without being the biggest powerhouse.

Sure, we know that but what I am saying is that it doesnt always get utilized
