FAdam K- How do you read comics and sit around on this board and not know who Gorilla Man is after the last couple of years??
Boycott #1 issues!!!!!
Where is red hulk's moustache?
X-Treme will be a big no-go for me. They tricked us by naming it X-Treme. We all thought Sage, Lifeguard and Neal Shaara (T-Bird III) would return. All hopes were up. But we only get another alternative timeline X-Book. Not interesting at all. They should have given the Streetteam (Boom-Boom, Dazzler and Lifeguard) a series and add T-Bird II and Sage in the mix, with perhaps two X-recruits (rotating).
Gambit, qwell at least they promised no Bella Donna, which is a good case. Still on my 'perhaps-I-will-try-list'
I'm waiting for it, I'm sure it will be good, scared it won't have a lot of action.
The team is all the promotion it needs. I don't really care about Gambit, but you'd have to be stupid to turn your nose up at Asmus and Mann. Chances are low, but I hope we get some Clay Mann Cecilia.
I love Asmus, but I don't even know if that's enough to get me to buy a Gambit book. Maybe if I hid it in an entirely more appropriate book for my purchasing taste, like Ted Mckeever's Mondo.
Marvel had a publicity blitz when it was first announced, and I imagine they'll push it hard in August when it's actually released. You'd think that they could at least have a few single-page ads in titles like Astonishing and Legacy, though, where he's a cast member.
Besides, all the publicity is going to Northstar/Kyle at the moment.
Marvel is heavily promoting AVX/Marriage arc, which are still happening now. Still a couple of months to go so i reckon they'll start advertising X-treme/Gambit/hawkeye when AVX is winding down.
Asmus said he was going to start promoting more this month, so we might see something in the next few weeks.
Has a Gambit series ever lasted more than a year or so?
Because the X-editors are morons who couldn't sell beer-flavoured boobs at a frat house.
