I approve of this direction, but I don't think Legacy or Astonishing will be consistent with it. Seriously, anyone plan on telling Marjorie Liu? Is this punishment for her mistakes?CV: Gambit's always been a bit of a ladies' man, will we see that played up or is he dedicated to Rogue?
JA: Oh, make no mistake – he’s a free agent right now. And I plan to take full advantage of that fact. I think one of the greatest aspects of Gambit’s character is his flirtatious charm. And that fits perfectly with the sexy spy/heist type of angle we’re crafting for the book. So there will be plenty of love interests – new and old – tied up in his dirty business.
Lila Cheney (616 or AoA) would be an awesome fit if they're doing something intergalactic...
More, it's about time Rogue had to win him back if they ever decide to try again (which should be some time off now) so let him be free and not worried about if either one is around the next morning.
i am surprised that they're trying another ongoing. i do like the sound of it as far as having gambit do things on his own & away from the x-men, though. hopefully the book will make it for a few arcs at least. i may check out the trade if it does & reviews are mostly positive.
and i'm counting 1, counting 2, counting 3...
Can't wait to see what his new threads look like.
Big fan and am excited Asmus is on this. Hopefully it will last for a while, all though I'm worried about that. I'll be picking this up monthly. Really glad they aren't going thieves Guild route. Should be good.

I look forward to 3 totally different Gambits every month.
