Cover/Solicit - 2/5

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

Art - 3/5

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

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

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

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- 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? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 3.6

- I have no idea what they were thinking for this cover. Gambit #5 - Under-Dressed and Under Duress would have been a better choice and the art just adds to the covers problems. The art in the issue was pretty good, there were a few scenes that Gambit's face looked strange and several panels seemed to lack detail. This issue continues Borya Cich's exploitation of Gambit for his own ends. He gives Gambit a mission to steal Excalibur and bring it back to him. Instead the mission leads to Gambit being captured by MI:13. Some of the location changes seems confusing at first, but it's not too hard to follow what's going on. I really enjoy this series and can't wait to see how Gambit gets free of Cich and how he deals with being an enemy of the state with the British Government.
