Cover & Solicit 3/5


I normally like Terry Dodson's art but some reason I'm not a fan of this cover. I think it's the way he has drawn Gambit's face, both in his expression and that he looks a little chunky.

Art, Colors & Inking 4/5


The team of Al Barrionuevo, Raul Fernandez, and Rachelle Rosenberg did a great job on the art in this book. There were a couple scenes where facial expressions and Gambit's body movements seemed off but otherwise it was great.

Layout & Flow 4/5


The overall flow of the comic was pretty fluid. It wasn't hard to understand or follow.

Story 4/5


This issue concludes Gambit's involvement with Borya Cich. James Asmus has done a great job on this arc of the the series. With Gambit now trapped by Borya's and no longer of any use, it's up to Gambit to find a way to escape. Not only that he needs to convince Pete Wisdom and MI:13 that he isn't a bad guy.  Thru some quick thinking back at MI:13 he was able to send Pete a message and lead them to Cich's hideout. We get a peek at the next story arc at the end of the issue involving Joelle from the first arc. If you are not already I strongly recommend picking up this series.

Verdict 3.9
