Everyone Hates Gambit in Excalibur #2 [Preview]

Excalibur #2 is in stores from Marvel Comics next week, by Tini Howard, Marcus To, Erick Arciniega, and a letterer who doesn’t deserve to have their name on the cover (apparently). @#$% letterers. Oh, you know how to type and draw circles, good for you. Not our words. Marvel’s. Anyway, we’ve got a preview below.

Excalibur #2

Rogue is in a naked coma, Betsy Braddock is Captain Britain, and Brian Braddock is EEEEVVVVIIIIILLL.

Excalibur #2

The preview begins with a flashback to the Fourth Century B.C.E., in which we witness the original Millennials vs. Boomers conflict, as young mutants die from climate-related disaster as Apocalypse watches and does nothing, too concerned with holding onto his own wealth.

And now we return to the present, with the Excalibur team hitching a ride with Kitty Pryde on her Marauders boat.

And since Apocalypse isn’t around, Gambit gets to be the butt of all the jokes… even though he’s not in a joking mood since his wife is in a naked coma.

Excalibur #2

Excalibur #2 is in stores on Wednesday. We called the first issue the best of all the Dawn of X launches. Can it continue the streak?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
