Gambit: back to basics?

April 17th, 2012 by Jay Comments

Last week with Marvel released a teaser image featuring nothing more than Gambit’s name logo, with the promise of more information to come at C2E2.  Gambit still has a good amount of fans – including us here at Following The Nerd – as interest was definitely piqued with basically no information given at all.

Things have changed – in that more information has now been released but the interest levels still remain high indeed!

Marvel announced on Sunday, at their Next Big Thing” panel, a new Gambit ongoing series debuting in August from writer James Asmus (Generation Hope) and artist Clay Mann (“Age of X”), revealing that the book would take Gambit back to his thieving roots … something that could please a large amount of fans as Gambit goes full circle to the character he was first introduced as, Mr Moral Ambiguity himself.

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
