More than usual. Dawn of X vol 3 might be something. Gambit is on the cover anyway. Guess we'll find out then how much Hickman likes Gambit.


Nah. It is just a trade cover for #3 issues of all 6 ongoings.

Anyone else notice a sudden up-tick in Gambit related media on Twitter between yesterday and today?

 Coincidence. Well, fans are hungry for some good stories.

I don't think anything concerning the Disney machine is an accident. When projects start coming up the same thing happens on YouTube. Creators with no connection to each other all start dropping videos along the same topics. I wouldn't be surprised if that was tweet was planned, or at least something to test the waters. Which does bode well for your "support the idea" push. Oh, the article is written. Just being edited and waiting to be published.

They're collecting all 6 on-goings? Glad you told me. I liked the cover but Gambit isn't in it,  not buying. LOL

Wow! You are fast! Awesome! Can't wait to read it!


Ofcourse I hope I would love it to be planned. Just don't want to hope and be dissapointed again.

Technically, it’s the number 3 issues of all the ongoing. So gambit is in it, but in Excalibur 3, which you probably don’t really want. ;) and is it just me or is that a bizarre way to collect for a trade?

Explains all the names on the cover. Heh heh, I see what they're are doing. Those who trade wait will have to buy all the volumes to get the whole thing instead of buying just the one trade for whatever is the favored book. Clever, may backfire but I guess we'll see how that marketing works. It's a complete-ist nightmare.

Good to know that its Excaliber, you are right. I refuse to spend money on that book. LOL
edit: wow, just thinking about these volumes, so 6 on-goings in one volume on a per issue collection (all #1's, all #2's, etc). If there are twelve issues, twelve volumes at anywhere from $25 - $35 a pop. Ouch.

I see Fantomex is coming back. Didn't Gambit owe him some kind of favor from Astonishing? Was that ever revealed?

Not yet. Hopefully it's dropped because I thought that him owing Fanto a favor was dumb anyways.

Seriously, though, what the @&#& is going on?!

This just fuels my suspicions about the writer's pov, that it is from a perspective that lacks knowledge of this coupling because it is not relatable to that person.

Edit: I don't care what the other thread and place says, its not adorable. And it further emasculates Gambit who has lost not only agency, but anything manly about him. IMO
