ROGUE and GAMBIT'S romantic getaway is but a faint memory as they're forced to team up with DEADPOOL to protect a dangerous and extremely valuable "package" when half the galaxy comes to claim it. What secrets does the package hold that the Imperial Guard and Deathbird (with an entire Shi'ar rebellion in tow!) will risk everything for? More importantly, can Rogue, Gambit, and Deadpool stop bickering long enough to win?

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Sep 25, 2018

    The use of so many bright colors works amazingly! All over a great issue. Never a dull moment with this comic in general, it's really solid. It's the half way point for this comicbook, and they plot continues to thicken and even though it's more light-hearted and funny, it continues to kick ass! Read Full Review

    Rogue and Gambit are allowed to star in their own comic again, and their vibrant chemistry and banter is proof enough why Kelly Thompson is such a rising star. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Phillip Pratt Sep 21, 2018

    If you're not already reading the Rogue/Gambit duo-book, my friends, you're missing out. In my humble opinion, by far the series (only three issues in), has proven to be the strongest written and purely entertaining X-Men franchise book. From the first page to the last, there isn't a wasted panel. While the third part of Love and Marriage ends with the couple in a familiar predicament, it doesn't dampen the anticipation for the next issue. High marks across the board. Read. This. Book.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 24, 2018

    Mr. & Mrs. X #3 was by far the strongest issue of this young series starring Rogue and Gambit. Kelly Thompson nails how fun and dramatic the cosmic corner of the Marvel Universe can be by putting Rogue and Gambit in the middle of a Shi'ar Empire civil war. The reveal of a powerful X-Men related offspring and what she means for the larger story created greater anticipation for where Thompson plans on going with this first story arc. Read Full Review

    This title started off well and is going full steam ahead. With a supporting cast of stellar proportions, it can only go one way. To the stars. Read Full Review

    Thompson has done well with Deadpool as a secondary character, but that's nothing when compared to what she continues to do with Rogue and Gambit. She just gets them. Read Full Review

    I very enjoyable read. I look forward to this title every time it comes out. I love Gambit and Rogue and Thompson continues to write them as a fun and charismatic couple.

    I have been enjoying this title so much. Kelly Thompson has a love for the characters that make the relationships feel natural. In this issue Rogue, Gambit and Deadpool learn the truth about the package that they have been fighting over with universal bounty hunters. There is less action in this chapter compared to the previous issues, but the humor and exposition make up for it.
    The art has been pretty strong throughout the series. The one thing that really drags the art down is the China doll style faces on everyone. There is a lack of facial expression to the characters and everyone has an almost unnatural beauty to their face. The problem is hardly a distraction compared to the terrific body language and settings. The colors make e more

    Kelly Thompson is the perfect writer for a X-series. This feels like an early Claremont run.

    That was a good issue. But I read WCA just before. So I find it less fun & even with a gap in the story.
    I had to reread to see that Nightside wasn't Xandra disguised.
    And maybe Deadpool take too much space in this Gambit/Malicia story. But to be fair a lot of character take more space than Gambit (Maybe because I have still a grunge against him ... It's possible I may be not totally honest about that)
    I love the idea but I fear than once this story done Xandra will be lost in Marvel's limbo.

    Cover - Love it & in a way in relation 1.5/2
    Writing - Funny & with a plan. I follow her with truth, because I sens she know where she goes. Just maybe something bigger could give this nice ongoing another importance/impa more

    Rogue and Gambit rush their way through more space shenanigans, pausing along the way for basic plot exposition and basic romance. It's not really flawed, but it feels to me like it's settling into a pretty safe formula/rut. Fighty, exposition, fighty, awww, they love each other, fighty, kinky sex joke; rinse and repeat until sales figures drop. A serving of art that barely claws its way into "good comics" territory is certainly a contributing factor to my saltiness here.

    Rogue calls out the excess of "clone and golem crap" she's been subjected to. Between Rogue and the clone hijinks Ms. Thompson threw at Kate Bishop, I'm wondering if she might have a fetish for doppelgangering her protagonists.

    It's perhaps surprising that the combination of Kelly Thompson (usually very funny) and Deadpool (comic relief) was so meh. Deadpool just isn't funny here, and the jokes about him killing people is really just bad taste. Thankfully now Deadpool is gone again so maybe next issue will pick up. So far this series has disappointed.

    -Apparently Kelly Thompson was holding back in issue #2, because Deadpool in this issue, is hilarious. Perfect. I know want her onboard a Deadpool series.

    -This issue's strongest point is clearly it's characters. They are all well-characterized and really well-written.

    THE BAD:

    -The art wasn't doing it again. I think the issue would be greatly benefitted by an artist switch. As the series stands, Bazaldua doesn't capture the expressions or the pure fun of the issue enough.

    -This series suffers from the terrible villain cliche. Not only is Deathbird non-imposing, but also she's forgettable.
