Astonishing ending with issue 12, will have no impact on the new book. It also doesn't meant Gambit will be the one in the new book. Its 50/50 at this point in time, and I think it will be Rogue. However, I would be pleasantly surprised if it was Gambit. I just don't think it will be.  ;)

lol Astonishing will no impact on ANY book. It's an insulated, isolated story barely steeped in continuity. That is the only reason Rogue was allowed to be in a book with an "X" in the title. To be honest... I'm not entirely sure why it even exists.

I don't agree. Even before Astonishing started it was stated that it will lead to smth new.


Also I doubt that Xavier return will have no impact on other books.

Not to be argumentative, but where was it stated that Astonishing would lead into anything. It's literally an island with a story not connected to anything. Was there some interview I missed? Not doubting you, I just don't see how this current story in Astonishing would tie into anything.  :D

Soule tweeted that it could lead into something bigger. I'll try to find it.

I think he insinuated that it could go on longer if it sold well. Which means it doesn't have a clear path outside of 12. I'm not happy about that. I like the book despite who much Soule doesn't understand Gambit. But having Logan an Rogue in this book when they are busy elsewhere in a story that doesn't seem to occur anywhere within the current realm of continuity doesn't bode well. The fact that Xavier may return through this is its only saving grace, but I doubt anything that happens here will be mentioned anywhere else. I mean c'mon, 4/5 of the cast is in limbo outside of this book.

Thanks .. I may have dismissed some of Soule's stuff because I wasn't thrilled with his concept. I would like to know if there is other plans though.

It started out in a defeatist attitude - a premise what it would be .. then "maybe" be more. Bad marketing in my view.

I mean c'mon, 4/5 of the cast is in limbo outside of this book.

This is why I am doubtful for Gambit. Whatever the new book is, they'll pick the character who has been in the books or wanted and all that ... and for quite some time its not Gambit.

Cc found a pic that Anka is drawing Gambit in his X-Factor iniform. He is doing R&G covers but what if it is cover for X-Factor return?





New team book with Gambit or Rogue are coming :)

How would that make sense though, didn't that team get disbanded at the end of the run?  I don't know how it ended I gave up on it. 


If it were PAD having another go at it and actually, y'know, staying committed this time, I'd be excited but that's a pretty vague bit of info to speculate on, as far as I'm concerned.

*chuckles* .... man oh man are we Gambit starved or what.

Anka posted that picture on twitter and instagram saying "I miss ya buddy"

I doubt its to mean anything more than what was posted.

Here is the tweet.

Anka posted sketch with Gambit for R&G cover #1 before this book was announced and we thought thta it was a variant for Astonishing.  With that sketch he wrote: I missed this Cajun.

I am sure new sketch is for cover too. Maybe just a variant but not just a pic because he likes to draw Gambit.
