Fall of the Mutants – Day 3&4 : Gambit and Wolverine

Finally feeling better and getting caught up. So you get two Mutants today. I will try to stay on track the rest of the month…

Gambit I first started reading the X-Men right before the X-Tinction Agenda (#264 is where I started buying it monthly.) I was one of the fanboys who thought that Gambit was awesome when he first showed up in the comics. Still do. He would be in my top five X-Men I think.

WolverineWolverine on the other hand… I never really cared for back then. He has grown on me some, but I still think he is over used and not the best character out there…

My Art – Jim Lee’s X-Men #1 Cover

So lets start the month of the X-Men out this way…

This has always been one of my favorite comic covers.

4 piece sketch card set I did for fun on a plane trip to keep my mind off the fact that I was in the air…

I will admit when this comic came out I was at the top of my Fanboyness and I bought all five covers! (Three of the gate-fold version)
