It looked like the Deadpool vs. Marvel issue that came out today featured the X-Men. Anyone pick it up? Just curious if Gambit made that issue.


I think Gambit was already killed in previews for previous issue of Deadpool kills Marvel.

Well, that stinks. I don't follow up as much as I used to .... we'll all have to band together to catch G's appearances.

As it is, not a lot of chatter due to lack of appearances.

Astonishing Xmen #2 is out August 16th ... via Marvel.com but sometimes that site burns me ... I'll know this Friday via my LCS if that is indeed fact. :)

Oh, I see... random X-Men sitting around a table in the X-Mansion playing cards (X-Men Gold #10) and they don't bother to even use Gambit as background art. Oh, OK @#$# you too, Guggenheim, X-Office, Marvel, and whatever editor(s) involved. Mostly joking, but dang.
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

If Gambit would be there playing cards then Logan won`t be able to win three hands in raw and be the best there is.

Maybe is a blessing in disguise, they might have had him loosing to Logan with the room laughing at him as he pouts in loserdom.

Not a sighting but something of mini feature on CBR addressing the time Gambit came back after Blood of Apocalypse

The art was pretty decent back then too even from Bachalo.

FABIAN NICIEZA On 30 Years In Comics, DEADPOOL's Success, & NFL SUPERPRO's Chances For a Return


https://www.newsarama.com/36105-fabian-nicieza-on-30-years-in-comics-deadpool-s-success-nfl-superpro-s-chances-for-a-return.html


Nrama: Deadpool is a big star now, and some of your X-Force creations are coming into their own now. Are there other characters you created or co-created that you think would do exceptionally well in the spotlight?


Nicieza: I think a non-X-Men focused TV series of a younger Gambit would make a great show. I think if Marvel Studios had decided to introduce a few more "cannon fodder" villains as almost throwaway cameos in their movies, combined with a few of their more prominent villains, then they could have more smartly set up a Thunderbolts movie that would have been as much fun as Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley's first year on the series.


Ironically, I think many of the pitches I made to Marvel -- and even DC - that they passed on contained some of the most viable concepts that they could have expended to film and television.

I think Nicieza could have easily wrote stuff for TV. I am in agreement a younger version of Gambit for TV would be fun. I can imagine all the trouble he could get into.

Anka is drawing Gambit again





Probably for Astonishing. I like his art much more now. His style has changed a little bit

I appreciate his art more now. I am not sure if style has changed all that much but I do like this image.
