    I'm beginning to like Suicide Girl though. She's less annoying this issue.The good thing with Suicide Girl is at least it establishes she is no push over. She was smart enough to play the dark past card (pun intended) to get close enough to Gambit to throw him off the roof and I got a sense there was some truth to what she said but she simply used it to her advantage. Likewise, she was agile enough not to get run over and propose a mutually beneficial alliance while stuck to the windshield. The point is she, like Gambit, seems capable of attempting to exploit whatever advantage she perceives out a situation which bodes well for her as a foil. At the same time, I think a part of Gambit was drawn in by her cunning and resourcefulness while another part of himrealizedthe game she was playing because he has done the same to others.Very eager to see how far their relationship progresses through the series.

    Like I previously mentioned, I get that Asmus has to push the story along -- he's got to get these two characters to team up and this was an easy way to do it. It's not that it's bad, and it might be something that clears up in the next few issues. I love this idea of a spy thriller starring Gambit, the globe-trotting thief. It's fun and interesting and it just really makes sense with the type of character he is. I think Asmus did a great job writing Gambit as this really interesting and fun character, and I definitely enjoyed this issue more than issue #1. Clay Mann is the perfect artist for this series; he's done a great job creating fluid, action packed panels and his talents really shine here. Read Full Review

    As an X-men fan, you'll probably love this series. As a Gambit specific fan, you may feel a bit of repetition, but the quality of the comic should win you over. A much needed, fresh new comic for a character growing stagnant amongst a universe growing too large. Read Full Review

    There is a certain fear that Gambit could move into that middling zone where the series is fun, but lacks any sort of substance to keep you interested.  While its well written and very well drawn, youve read this type of story before and I dont have a lot of faith in it being anymore interesting then what this issue had to offer.  The bottom line is, Gambit is a fun character and the stories should be fun; so, if you enjoyed whats happened so far, then you should definitely stick around.

    Clay Mann's art helps keep the heist sequences engaging, at least. Mann has a real talent for rendering powerful, fluid figures that Asmus puts to good use. I do wish that the coloring meshed better with the pencils and inks, however. The colors are too shimmery and ethereal for what would otherwise be a realistically rendered issue. Read Full Review

    I want to like this series a lot because of how much I like Gambit, but it's just not really grabbing my interest as much as some other books on my pull list right now. Maybe it'll get better in the next issue once it (hopefully) starts to get into more Act II stuff. Read Full Review
