Gambit #5 - Under-Dressed and Under Duress Review

Gambit #5 Review


Cover - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 5/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Color/Ink - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?

Layout - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?

Verdict - 4.3

- What I think: Not really sure what to think about the cover, it's pretty basic pose, but it has no connection to the issue except the ending that shows MI13. I'm liking the art direction and coloring of the issue, it fits Gambit and the Spy/Thief vibe the series is going for. I really have no gripes about the story. It continues Gambit's ordeal with Cich who is forcing Gambit to run jobs for him (at gunpoint). My only problem is the use of Gambit's power to detect bio-organisms on a control panel. While I know he is better at controlling his power, but this seems far-fetched. Otherwise it was a good issue and can't wait to see his adventure in the UK with MI13.
