    This issue's big on fun, serves up plenty of solid banter and character interactions, and is loaded with just the right amount of heart. Throw in terrific yet diverse visuals and I can confidently say this story arc is without question the best one from the series thus far. Does my love for Gambit boost my enjoyment of this book? Absolutely and I won't deny that for even a second. I imagine if you're not a big fan of the character, this chapter will likely fall more into the 3.5-4 star range for you. I haven't been all that enthusiastic about this book for awhile now, but thanks to the last few issues, my opinion has done a complete 180. Nice to have you back, Remy! Read Full Review

    This issue wrapped itself up nicely. Almost too nicely. So nicely in fact, that it feels a little anti-climactic. I hope Joelle's death has lasting effects on Gambit or it'll make this whole story more than a little forgettable. The fight between Joelle and Rogue felt a little forced as well Read Full Review

    I keep dipping a toe into "Gambit" as I continue to hold an almost unreasonable affection for the character, and I hoped that these issues with Rogue (another character I enjoy) would help me settle into a nice affection for the book. Unfortunately, with the tag team art, and my inability to connect to Joelle and thus care about her fate, I'm underwhelmed, again. Read Full Review
