Rémy LeBeau, the Ragin’ Cajun aka Gambit of the X-Men is getting an all new ongoing series from writer James Asmus with art by Clay Mann. The character has always been one of my favorite X-Men, right up there with Rogue, and it is nice to see him as popular as ever. He has had two other ongoing titles in the past with a total of 39 issues, so it should be interesting to see if this title can last a bit longer. Especially consider that Marvel Now! is set to shake up things in the Marvel Comics universe and is relaunching most of the publisher’s main titles (including Captain America, Thor, and Hulk).
Official Description: When Marvel’s premier thief sets his sights on his biggest score yet, he may just end up over his head. It’s going to take more than just playing cards and southern charm to get out of this one!
The issue arrives in stores on Wednesday, August 8, 2012. Will you be picking it up? Would you prefer another X-Men member to get a solo?
