Issue 7 I suppose.
Always wanted to see Gambit using charged knout to make explosions.

The whip action is pretty cool.  Of course, as he is beating up no names again, I can only imagine someone of note will come and kick his ass again.  Spiral maybe!  I kid of course.  I am hopeful they will give him a win against someone of importance this time.

Good eyes, I couldn't tell if that was a whip.

I guess a whip would be fairly interesting. The end snap of a charged whip should be enough to level a small building, or cut a tree in half! I dig... But it could also be a rope, so...

Wasn't a whip, just the aftermath of standard explosion.  This was a decent issue I guess. Not a huge fan of Mojo and looks like more Rogue development is coming so nothing here that really excites me as a Gambit fan.

Sad it wasn't a knout(


I hope Gambit will fight Spiral or Longshot next issue. Fingers crossed for both, of course.

Step 1: Start an arc with all the right cues, some witty banter and back and forth.
Step 2: Toss in a fight scene with either a ton of goons or a B lister at best.
Step 3: Dangle a little bit of angst.
Step 4: Marginalize Gambit somehow.
Step 5: ????
Step 6: Let Rogue pull out the win at the end of the arc while Gambit sits back and claps politely.


siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh

I'm really trying to like this guys, I really am. I appreciate the call-backs and the wittiness from time to time, but after each arc is basically becoming the same thing with different dressing, I'm just getting exhausted. There are little gimmicks here and there to keep Gambit fans interested, but it's beginning to feel like that's all they are.


Spiral made a reference to how Rogue's vitals look different than what they remembered... wellllllll according to the last issue of Asmus' run, Gambit's should too.




So Magneto last issue, Longshot next issue...


Does Gambit have any old flames other than Belladonna that can show up?


It's kinda sad that I already started off with low expectations for this series, but I still held out hope that the arcs would be balanced in some way. I've gone from being excited to get the emails about the issues to now feeling ambivalent and wondering what I'll get this time, especially after this latest ending.

Lol, someone paying attention to Gambit continuity from Asmus?  Please!  Continuity only matters when it is pushes Rogue's narrative.

I'll be picking up the book today. I'll be able to chime in then. Looking forward to it.

I liked the issue. It was mad fun. The Moonlighting reference was great. I'm old enough to remember when it was on the air and in syndication. I used that comparison for what the book could have been like even before the debut. I'm surprised that KTs Mojo was as good as it was. I will say that the issue was wordy, but that's typical of her style from what I can tell.


I'm not sure what the problem is with KT using Rogue's powers as a subplot is. She didn't rebreak the character. Why not play with it? As for Longshot, why not? I've always wanted him and Gambit to interact more. Maybe a one-shot of them out on the town all Wedding Crashers. Mind you, before Gambit got married. I don't get the comparison to Magneto. She and Longshot were never a thing. She had a crush on him. Gambit's kissed half the female X-Men cast, I mean what do you want?


Outside of strange nit picks, the book was good. Enjoyed it a lot.
