How would a couple therapist resolve 'Left me to die in Antartica' and 'Died with me' and 'Pulled me away from Heaven'  ???

That's what I was thinking.

Gonna need more than a cool layout to address their baggage, tho.

Well, there was actually an Antarctica 'bubble' in one of those preview pages, so I guess that means it gets 'sort of' addressed. Something tells me that is how a lot of things are going to be rehashed, especially if you consider 'a picture is worth a thousand words'.

I want the Storm kiss addressed. There is no explaining that and has to result in chaos. As it did in my short story. Nothing else would be acceptable.

This was definitely much better than the first and more balanced in terms of the dynamic between the two. KT does write a good Rogue and Gambit as the chemistry between the two was definitely reminiscent of happier times. I also thought their first meeting pretty much was a microcosm of the relationship as it stands now with Rogue not wanting to remember their first kiss because she feels they were not in control and Gambit saying the only thing that could break through the SK's control was Rogue. Control and the lack thereof has always been a big sticking point for Rogue as a character and Gambit has always seemed to throw caution to the wind and allow himself to experience the world as it comes to him and not get hung up on the details. Thought that was nicely done.There is still the obvious elephant in the room of how to bridge the gap in all that history which I still am not sure KT can do to my satisfaction but for an issue at least, I almost liked Romy. I'll see how she closes this out before deciding whether it is worth picking up in trade.

Issue #2 was really well done. After years of anti Romy politics at Marvel, Kelly Thompson shows how effortless it is to make the rogue and gambit dynamic interesting. I like how their baggage isn't swept under the rug or exaggerated as some sort of break point. They are a comic book couple after all.

Better than the first issue, the art is nice. Good action scenes. Agree with Remydat that it was more balanced between the two characters.

I don't know who the villain is but whatevs.

It was good, thats all I got for it.

Gambit using his powers always looks cool on the page. :)

Liked it. I forgot how much I like seeing them work together.

But again, I'm gonna need the Magneto thing to be addressed in speech, not just a picture.

Also, "y'all" is plural. I already told her--she said she disagreed (*eyeroll*), but said her editor really wanted her to change it. Shoulda listened.

Oh, and did anyone else spot the dreaded Third Person bit? Rrrrrrrrr

I did notice the dreaded third person speech. I tried not to say anything about it, at least it wasn't constant and only occurred once.

There is plenty that should be addressed, saying they feel better or lighter despite not really talking about the stuff that is in their baggage won't be good enough to clear the air between them. IMO.
