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

It is hard to be excited for me for astonishing too. I need some interview with Soule to understand if Gambit fan need to expect smth good from it.

So far I am not sure that Gambit will even appear in first issue

Only hardcore fans who haven't found another hobby will deal with this. I know I won't - tbh - Jim Lee's art isn't all that great. I know blasphemy ... bring it gang! LOL

They are all 32 pges. 12 for adds, 20 for content. When I started this hobby, there were a lot more pages for content and far less for ads.

Yeah, all 32p. But most new ongoing marvel #1 or books for 5$ has 40p. with some extra real pages added for 20p. content.

LOL I was about to say the same thing. Funny he put this up right after I commented "I hope Gambit looks better in the book".



Aannnnd, not so much better... The way he draws isn't flattering to Gambit #1 identifying trait (his eyes). His intimidating red on black eyes are replaced with beady barely there, very worn slits.

You need to criticize more writers at Marvel. Maybe they will start to write better.
