What: Gambit #1
Who: Writer- James Asmus
Penciler- Clay Mann
Inker- Seth Mann
Colorist- Rachelle Rosenberg
Gambit has always been, in my mind, James Bond with mutant powers and Asmus really plays that up here. One great sequence in this issue is Gambit getting into Cich’s vault of “artifacts.” Surrounded by an arsenal of weapons he has to get past a voice-print recognition test, a handprint scan, retina scan and finally a password test. We get flashback of how Gambit recorded Cich’s voice, acquired his handprint and obtained a retina copy to pass the first three security measures. Then, when it comes to the password which he doesn’t have, he simply asks, “Please?” and the password is accepted. That last bit was pure Gambit and got a chuckle out of me. By the end of the issue they’ve given you enough to keep you wanting issue two.
What is that starfish and what’s going to happen to Gambit after it went into his body? Just who is that mysterious tattooed woman? What will Cich’s next move be? Even if I weren’t such a fan of Gambit, this promising start to the new series would definitely have me adding it to my pull list.

The first issue set up the premise: Marceline is going on tour with her band, the Scream Queens. Princess Bubblegum, who has a newfound love for Marceline’s music, decides to join them as the band’s manager. It was a rather slow start to a series that, being an AT fan, I have really high hopes for. Unfortunately the first issue felt like some of the worst episodes of “Lost.” You got a lot of information, but at the end, you kind feel like you didn’t really see anything significant.
The second issue moves at such a clip that, in the end, it felt just as unsatisfying as issue #1. In 15 short pages we see:

Palmiotti Set To Celebrate The Most Original Minds In Comics Through New Ongoing Series With Image Comics
The list of comic book luminaries appearing at this year’s Long Beach Comic & Horror Con continues to grow as Industry pioneer Jimmy Palmiotti joins the ranks of this year’s special guests for the event which will take place November 3-4 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
The award-winning creator, writer and inker has his hands in several top series, with current work including DC’s Ame-Comi web series, Creator-Owned Heroes and Queen Crab. Some past projects include Jonah Hex, Punisher, Monolith, Hawkman and The New West, which is being adapted into a movie by New Regency with Len Wiseman (Total Recall, Underworld) producing. Palmiotti also formed Paperfilms, a production company that has amassed a number of highly-anticipated projects including the Painkiller Jane TV series, which aired on SyFy and the 3D fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, a game slated for a 2013 release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U. From the creators behind Mortal Kombat: DC Universe, Injustice pits DC’s top heroes and villains – including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Harley Quinn and Solomon Grundy – in an all or nothing brawl.
Through his collaboration with Image Comics on the critically-acclaimed new series, Creator-Owned Heroes, Palmiotti is part of an industry wide expansion of creator owned and controlled projects. The Creator-Owned series introduces fans to the most vibrant and original work from some of the comic book world’s top imaginations. The issues also share exclusive interviews from Neil Gaiman, Mark Waid, Scott Morse and Amanda Conner.
“The Long Beach Comic & Horror Con is one of my favorite shows to meet and greet the fans,” said Palmiotti. “I have not missed a single show and it’s been great to watch it grow year after year into one of the top conventions in the country. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
The convention floor hours are 10:00am to 7:00pm on Saturday November 3 and 10:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday November 4.
Long Beach Comic & Horror Con is a true comic con focused on creating a fantastic experience for both fans and exhibitors alike in the Long Beach, Anaheim & Los Angeles areas. With something for everyone, this year's Long Beach Comic & Horror Con will be held November 3 & 4, 2012 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
