"She's the End of the World"

Oh no dragons! That was my thought at the end of the last issue. It definitely picked up right in the thick of the action. Remy just doesn't give up, does he? I understand that people do crazy things for beautiful women, but I think Remy takes the cake. He fights dragons, goes into a dimension that causes him to almost die just because the atmosphere is so bad and he does it all for a girl who has betrayed him MULTIPLE TIMES!

Oh well, it is fun to watch him get himself DEEPER into trouble. I think that is the overall message of this book. If Gambit is left to his own devices, he will get himself into trouble because he makes poor choices. After his battle with the dragons (I am not certain they are dragons, but man they definitely look to be), Remy recovers and finally gets an apology from the girl...sort of. We do finally learn that her name is Joelle...yeah...took four issues for Gambit to get this girl's name. He also gets his smooch that is beyond well deserved...the punch isn't.

To continue with the trend of making terrible decisions, Remy jumps into a limo that he even states he should be wary about to be at the end of a gun held by Borya Cich's men. Who is Borya Cich? He is the guy Remy stole the weird artifact from way back in issue #1. 

It is weird. I grabbed this comic on a whim. I know Gambit's previous comics have been flops and assumed this would be the same. So far, I am not thinking so. I think that perhaps James Asmus has such a strong grasp of Gambit as a character that this comic may have many issues to come.
