• It's ROGUE and GAMBIT vs. LAVISH for all the marbles (nobody cares about marbles anymore, but it's still a great saying, just go with it)!
•  The stakes in Paraíso couldn't be higher - the fates of innocent mutants, Rogue and Gambit, AND the hottest relationship in the Marvel Universe - all hang in the balance!
•  Does being together make Rogue & Gambit unstoppable? Or does it doom their mission and everyone they're trying to save?
•  When the dust settles WHO and WHAT will be left standing?
Rated T+

    Rogue & Gambit is Marvel at its best. This mini-series simply has it all " superhero action, funny banter, and at its heart, a couple who've been through hell together and are still committed to giving their relationship another shot. Read Full Review

    Some might find the ending a bit saccharine, but as a celebration of these two and all they've been through? It strikes the perfect final chord. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 8, 2018

    Rogue & Gambit #5 delivered a fun ending to Kelly Thompson's mini-series featuring one of the X-Men's premiere couples. Thompson delivered all the fun moments that fans expect from seeing Rogue and Gambit together. By the end you'll feel Rogue and Gambit grew stronger as a couple and individuals. Pere Perez elevated Thompson's story by delivering a lot of great artwork, especially for the big nostalgic moments. If you are an X-Men fan I highly recommend picking up Rogue & Gambit comes out on hardcover or trade paperback. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza May 9, 2018

    They learned more about themselves, more about each other, and taught other mutants to appreciate their powers. That it is part of who they are. Rogue and Gambit saved the day in many ways. And their relationship. It's been a case of "met the right person at the wrong time," but their timing will never be perfect, their lives will never be perfect, it is better to just live in the moment with the person you've always been in love with. This is an adorable way to end the series, but I think it is also awesome that we don't actually know what happened to Lavish, she could make a good villain later on with the rest of the mutant. Kelly Thompson carried this series very well and kept you coming back for more. The art and color was beautiful and never sloppy. Sad to see it end! Read Full Review
