YES!!!! As long as they keep Wolverine away from this it will be amazing! Who am I kidding they'll still use this as a way to have more books featuring wolverine... :(. But nonetheless this is great news! Some love for the ragin' cajun! Just hope that Bachalo is not on the art, I can't stand his work.

I hope they replace all of Wolverine's books with Gambit

As a character Gambit is one of the best X-Men ever.

As a leading character, he suffers.

Nobody cares about The Thieves Guild, Belldonna, Candra, etc. We really only care about Gambit. Not his origin, not his conscience, and definitely not about his family. Gambit, Rogue, Magneto and the love triangle is really all we care about. And that, is not enough to carry an ongoing series.

Nobody cared about the love triangle... most want that to end. Only the morons at CBR, deviantart and comicvine cared about that shit

*Sigh* I know I'll be picking up this series mainly because Gambit is my favorite mutant. But as soon as I get invested in it, it will be cancelled and I'll wonder why I even bothered.

The Good: A new not principal Character get an ongoing

The Bad: Too many X-series

Agreed completely. I love the X-Men but a strong majority of the Marvel books are either X-Men or Avengers books now.

- I'm surprised it took this long for him to get another series, maybe this time they can give him something to do

- As cool as the character is, without some kind of real purpose it will get stale fast

- X-23 fans can expect to see her here at least as a semi-regular cameo

I could not disagree with this more......

Can somebody well versed in the character and who read all his appearances in X-23 (under Liu's pen) explain to me what was wrong with the characterization of him?

I love this and hope its great but I fear my budget wallet take another book let alone another X book.

Hopefully with all things xmen on TV and in the movies we will see the horseman of apocalypse in movies

@Night Thrasher: I agree Thieves guild has been done so many times...People just love is speech patern and throwing cards. X-men TAS for the win.

Man I remember when Gambit was cool.

Now it's Fantomex this and Dr. Nemesis that...

You're right, Gambit is not an overexposed character who is in way too many x-books.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this. I still have a bunch of old Gambit comics, and his first mini and ongoing were great. I think he deserves his own book. 'X-Men' is rarely good anymore, and he died in the Ultimate universe a long time ago, so bringing back this title is a good move. Cancelling it soon would be a bad move.

It's probably going to get a 10k sale figure in the first or the first two years and it's going to get cancelled.

well.. since we got new street level with moonknight, daredevil and punisher recently, one could hope this won't be an "x-men book", but an urban thief mutant book.. like the 2005 series (which was crap.. even though issue 10 was amazin, the rest was just crap).. but well written..

the writer will be revealed on 15th? my guesses..

liu: 9. would be awesome. best gambit in ages. and as far as i've seen from liu's approach, no rogue!

kyle/yost: 8. i didnt like hellbound, but x-force was amazing.. that touch would be great in a gambit comic book.. assassin's guild was visited in "x-force sex and violence".. nice work..

bendis: 6 i enjoy his solo/street.. elektra, daredevil, moonknight, scarlett.. but i hate his runs on power teams and mega events.. heard he will be on x-treme x-men.. maybe he will be on gambit too..

carey: 3 i like carey overall, but he didn't seem to understand gambit.. it's like watching porn directed by a virgin.. something like that.. hope he stay away from this series..

claremont: bonus guess.. is there any chance of claremont writing this? well, he's the father, but i hope not.. his 90's gambit just wouldn't fit..

and yes.. he is no wolverine, it will be canceled.. =/

Maybe they can explore the backstory of why he needs to constantly wear that cowl/hood/headband/neck brace contraption he wears.

Hahahahaha!

Anyway, what's with people going "Oh, not another X-book." It's not like it's another team book.

#96 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23390 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm honestly not sure who I'd want writing this. Probably Kyle and Yost, everyone else on the X-Books kinda sucks. (Not including Remender and David)

#97 Posted by jhazzroucher (18287 posts) - - Show Bio

This is cool that Gambit will have his comics.

I wanna see these three ladies on his comics.

Storm: Gambit's bestfriend. well sort of.

Uncanny X-Men #549

Rogue: Gambit's ex girlfriend

X-23: Gambit's interest.

X-23
