There’s a sequence in this issue where somebody throws a car and it blows up on impact. The explosion takes up more than half a page. I feel like that is the proper way to convey a car explosion in a comic book.

There’s a character in the book that’s obviously meant to be a token love interest for Gambit. Standard stuff. But then I looked the way she’s drawn and colored. And you know what? I get it. I’d want her to be my love interest too. I see you, Gambit. I see you.

I might lose a little fanboy cred for this, but I had no idea Gambit knew a young Storm. But this five-issue story returns Remy to his co-creator and legendary X-Men scribe Chris Claremont to dive into their shared history.

Any time Claremont writes an X-Men title it’s newsworthy, and rightfully so. Those who loved his Uncanny X-Men run will be at home here. And Sid Kotian and Espen Grundetjern make it look great. Fans less versed in X-Men history might be a little lost. But this is a worthwhile outing nonetheless.
