Gambit-one of the smoothest, best-looking operators in the world of the X-Men. Deadpool-one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags in the world of everything. Naturally, these guys got beef. But do you know what they have in common? A secret history of working together to pull con-jobs. That's right-the grift is on as the Regeneratin' Degenerate and the Ragin' Cajun begrudgingly take on one last job together. Writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (THUNDERBOLTS, The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and artist Danilo Beyruth (GWENPOOL) lead us into the dirty underbelly of Deadpool and the squeaky-clean abs of Gambit!

    I likedthis issue way more than I thought I would. On a second read, I like the incognito scuffle a whole lot more, knowing what to expect. That aspect, in addition to the art and banter between the title characters, makes thisissue worth a read or two. Read Full Review

    Annoyed with the fact they've lost a bunch of money, they encounter the thief. He proposes to them that if they help him out, they can have their loot back and even more of it" Commence Issue #2. So it's calledDeadpool Vs. Gambit and mainly focuses on Daredevil Vs. Spider-Man, it works really well even if it's a tad messy. Even the art work compliments the hectic storytelling well, with a surprising amount of detail and rather unique take on the appearance of the characters. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a great opening issue. Now that we know the dynamic that Deadpool and Gambit have, it'll be a lot easier to get through the series. These two have a great chemistry and really lively personalities, so the series is definitely not going to disappoint us. Read Full Review

    Deadpool...... Gambit....... Where's the beef?..... I can use that slogan for this right?..... I mean, you all know I mean beef as in problem and not actually a tasty burger from Wendy's right?..... Damn, I'm hungry.  Anyway, Deadpool V Gambit starts out hilarious as hell as you'd imagine and takes us on a story that will not only involve the Merc with the Mouth and the Ragin' Cajun, but also a heist..... and who doesn't love heists?  I'm asking a lot of questions here.  With great art and great humor that only lost me a couple of times with how much it wanted to poke fun at certain people, I have to say that this was an excellent issue and a great opener to a story I can't wait to read.  Everyone deserves a smile a day so why not let this issue be the cause of it.

    Acker, Blacker and Beyruth set up a really fun concept, portraying Deadpool and Gambit as a "Beavis and Butt-Head" pairing with a few more brain cells and a lot more firepower. This first issue only scratches the surface of that potential; as a standalone, it's fun, but a little unsatisfying. Fans looking for a buddy action comedy will find the start of one here, but they'll have to wait a little longer to see the real story. Read Full Review

    We're teetering on something more than OK.Danilo Beyruth's art, whether in insane Deadpool memory scenes or just Gambit and Pool gabbing, is fantastic. It has this kinetic, off-the-wall grittiness to it. Ben Blacker and Ben Blacker need to reel it in a little bit and gain some focus and they should probably pick on a new group. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 23, 2016

    There's a lot of potential on display in Deadpool v Gambit #1, but the odd structure and storytelling choices prevent that core dynamic from getting the attention it deserves here. Hopefully now that the setup is more or less out of the way, this series can dig into this rivalry and give Gambit something useful to do for a change. Read Full Review

    Following the successes of Deadpool vs Thanos and Deadpool vs Hawkeye the expectation is high but unfortunately Deadpool v Gambit falls flat. It fails to properly set the stage by relying on the past rather than the present. The authors need to pull it together and focus on the title character and move the story forward. Read Full Review

    Deadpool vs. Gambit #1 is a rather strange and muddled start for this mini-series, being far from the epic conflict I hoped for. The lack of focus on out two titular characters didn't help improve upon this, being rather cheap at times. That said, there was some promise shown in this opening issue, even if it came during the last page. Read Full Review
