As for the "famous" flashback scene, my guess is the near-death experience in X-treme X-men.  KT has ruled out a bunch of other scenes (as suggested by fans) on her tumblr account, but no one asked about that one.

Also, something to look forward to - KT: "The last two issues also look absolutely phenomenal.  Pere really outdid himself.  He just turned in the last page of issue five this week and it’s just a gorgeous issue.  There’s a splash page of Rogue & Gambit in issue 5 that is visually EASILY one of the top 10 moments of ALL TIME for the two of them. "


I'm going to miss this book once it's over!

I remember her mentioning that the Valle Soleada period wouldn’t be addressed. A flashback of something that happened before that is probably not out of the question, though. More of the conversation they had after they almost died would be nice. There are a lot of gaps that could be filled in from them making the decision of leaving to settling down.

That sounds right. Last issue will be in May and then a month in between. It'll give me a nice break to digest the finale and then come back to it and read it all at once haha

 I was hoping that ugly cover would be reconsidered. I’ll buy it regardless.

The cover does kinda suck. I'm not a fan of the majority of Anka's covers for this series, but the first and #4 are my least favorite. I'd like to ask why the use of the blank backgrounds. It seems to be the theme and I'm not sure whether it's in tune with whats happening in the story, or just lazy.
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

I like cover for first issue. Not a fan of issue 4 cover.

I like #4 more than #1... I can't stand how Gambit or Rogue are drawn on the first one. I think a better cover could have been used to show the tone the book was going for, definitely wasnt that IMO.

So we can see from the June solicits, that this book hasn't been renewed. Here's a quote from KT (from tumblr):


Quote
I think there’s a lot of love at Marvel for our Rogue & Gambit book - everyone has been really encouraging and supportive. But we’re just going to have to wait and see if that means we can get something else going down the line.
Don’t give up hope, there really is a lot of love at Marvel for this book and I think they’re very aware of the fan response as well as the excellent reviews we’re getting. 
And thanks to all of you for your part in making your love for the book known - it absolutely means something and helps the cause of more stories for these two!

There's always a chance for KT to write a volume 2 in the future now that she'll be more prominent at Marvel. Or maybe she'll write them both in an X-Men book.
Though I can't see anyone else write a 'Rogue/Gambit' series, I think KT is the only one that's capable of writing a high quality R&G book.
