GAAAAHH!!!

Oh sorry guys, I just got quite a sudden fright from seeing Rogue's terrifying face right before being blinded by Gambit's boots.


Carry on.

The coloring of the boots on Gambit is really loud. If you think the green on Rogue is too florescent .... good grief - look at Gambit's boots. We make fun of Gambit and his costume and how practical it would be for thieving and then see those boots. Holy crap ... he might as well turn on all the lights for the job. LOL


He is King of Thieves and just trying to up his degree of difficulty to prove it.

Ha! It's funny because it's my signature!


I know! I remember the quote, what was it? Five-six years ago? As profound and hilarious today as it was when it was written. NicoPony where art thou?  :gambit:  -back in the old gambit guild I would've used like twenty different  types of Gambit emojis right there-


@PurpleVit


Pretty spot on. A fun idea, but lackluster execution. Is it me, or does the coloring really make it seem whatevers?

My retinologist warned me about this type of thing after I had eye surgery.

C'mon, its a bad cover.

I was kidding...

I think the concept is cute, though.

Yeah, I like the concept and the line-work itself isn't bad. I just can't get past the coloring.


Also, when did you change your signature? It's cracking me up  ;D

Wish Marvel'd hire me to do a variant cover.

You'd crush it, seriously. I do wonder how marvel makes decisions like this and how some editor didn't say, can you tone down the colors a bit?


Agree with the consensus, it's a fun idea, but not well done, especially the colors, yikes.

I don't think it's a fun idea either though. I don't like the concept at all. Kinda emasculating in a way. Puffy Daddy-suit shinny boots don't help either. It really does look like one of the old school comic cards from the mid 90s. I think it was semi-realistic X-Men Fleer set. Not my favorite.

I find the cover emasculating as well. You found the right word. The coloring is just awful.
Gambit is not a damsel in distress ..... guess, I don't have a sense of humor for it.  ;)

One more count for the "finds it emasculating". Ugh.

Have any of you guys listened to this podcast before, www.xplainthexmen.com/2018/04/191-unconscionably-sexy/


At the 46 minute mark Kelly Thompson talks about Rogneto and basically she has a lot of the same issues/sentiments that many of us have with Rogneto.    It's worth a listen.

I used to listen quite a bit (but was kind of put off with how hard they were on Gambit). I'll have to check it out
