5.0 out of 5 stars IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER
After this Volume this title has just become my favorite current comic! The only problem is that this will be the penultimate issue! (why Marvel? Why?). I don't know what else to say other buy this book because it is nothing short of brilliant and there is a 99% chance you will love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining adventure story, 28 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Gambit - Volume 2: Tombstone Blues (Marvel Now) (Paperback)
The story running through issues #8-12 of Marvel Now's new Gambit title is collected, along with the Gambit/Hawkeye story from A=X #3, as Gambit - Volume 2: Tombstone Blues (Marvel Now). Is an entertaining if lightweight adventure story that could easily have been a Wolverine story, or featured almost any other minorish character. However, it is entertaining, with good scripting and artwork, but nothing to make it a truly memorable or groundbreaking story - which is not a bad thing in itself, for, as the saying goes, if you eat a banquet every day, you soon get bloated. The first story is a relatively stand alone adventure, as Gambit has to go and rescue a party of University students who have entered the Forever City on a sort of archaeological dig, only to be eaten by big evolved monsters. Well, some of them are. It is up to Gambit to rescue the survivors. The nest four issues involve hunting down Joelle, an ex-partner from the previous storyline - see Gambit - Volume 1: Once a Thief... (Marvel Now) - who is trying to trade some information to gangland boss Tombstone, who is holed up in the latest supervillain bar/nightclub to be opened in New York (and there is a reference to the Punisher's visit to the previous establishment). Anyway, needless to ay something goes wrong with the negotiations - thanks to Gambit - and soon he and Joelle are off to the secret Hydra laboratory to recover the McGuffin that will cure Joelle's sick daughter. Tombsone has naturally despatched hit squad to recover whatever it is, and kill our two heroes, who have also got Rogue chasing them thanks to that nightclub incident. There is good amount of double crossing before we discover that there really is a daughter, though the plot is a bit more twisted than we are first (and subsequently) led to believe; and there is not necessarily a happy ending for everyone...

As I said above, Is an entertaining if lightweight adventure story, with good scripting, characterisation and artwork. If you are a fan of Gambit, then you will probably thin it deserves more stars; however, he is relatively unknown to me, as our paths have seldom crossed in my many years of comic reading. I enjoyed it, but that is about it.
