2 New X-Titles in 2018

Rouge and Gambit duo book and a new Legion book!

No word if these are ongoing or what the creative team will be, but still I'm pretty excited.

Rogue and Gambit? That is not something I expected...

I would LOVE for Si Spurrier to return to Legion, to this day his Legacy work with him remains one of my favorite books ever, and it would feel the Legacy brand somehow (I have no idea what the relaunch/rebrand is about lol, been out of the loop)

Also, excited for Rogue and Gambit, I remember fondly Gambit's solo by Asmus and Carey's work with Rogue.

I was reading the free copy of FOOM magazine I got at the comic shop and apparently Kelly Thompson, writer of Hawkeye, is a HUGE Rogue and Gambit fan. I like that book and wouldn't mind if she came on to write this one. She is also a big fan of their romance but I expect this title will rekindle that relationship regardless if she writes it or not.

No actual details other than that these books will exist (author, artist, length), but overall I'm down. I've been wanting more Gambit in my life.

Oh man so happy I called it correctly. Kelly Thompson is doing a great Hawkeye series and I'll be there for this book too even if it is only a mini-series.

Hawkeye has really surprised me by how much I've enjoyed it. Hope that Thompson can do just as good a job on R&G.

Having Spurrier back for Legion is too much to hope for (and he did kind of wrap-up Legion's story so not sure if he would want to resume it). I wish they would give it to Ewing. He uses X-characters in his Avengers book but I would love to see him on a proper X-title.

Given Ewing's clear love for the New Mutants (his usage of Sam & Bobby over in USAvengers) and for cosmic weirdness, I'd LOVE for him to write Legion, holy balls.

Am I the only one disturbed by Rogue's face on that cover? Nevermind the crazy eyebrows, what's going on with her ear? It looks like it's coming out of her jawline.

Hmm I don't think it's that bad. Some artists draw the lower part of cheekbones with a line and it does actually start at about mid ear. With the eyebrows I think he was just trying to inject some personality, notice the smirk on her face. I've definitely seen much worse.

The cheekbone line seems to be aligned with the top of the ear which seems a bit much. I'm not an artist but it's my understanding that the rule of thumb is that if you draw a line from the eyes and a paralel one from the bottom of the nose, your ears should be roughly contained between those lines. This example has her ear a bit too low for that.

It's certainly not the worse ever, mind you, but this is a cover that they are using as the "face" of the title. I would expect a bit more polish.

Yeh the head tilt and the fact it’s foreshortened probably messed him up a little bit, but I still think overall its a successful cover. The poses are very dynamic.

I'm definately not a Milligan fan, but I can see his weirdness working for Legion.

My biggest question about the Legion mini-series is whether it will acknowledge Spurriers awesome run. Will Blindfold be involved? Is David in her head?

If you're going to use Milligan, Legion is probably one of the x-properties most suitable for his writing style.

Still, I wonder if that mini is really needed. Considering the way Spurrier left the character it would seem cheap to bring him back just to have a short story. Either have a massive storyline planned or it seems better to leave him in limbo for now.

Granted... from everything that we've been hearing, Marvel must be scrambling to find some property that works and thus this is probably just a cheap attempt to capitalize on the success of the TV show.
