Book Summary: Stuck in the Mojoverse! Rogue and Gambit are forced to relive moments of their past…but this time for the cameras!
Book Review: Like all issues of past and present, this issue pretty much continues from the last.

Gambit and Rogue are hanging over a pool of aligators and are about to be the main course for them. Yet neither of them know how exactly they have gotten there. Neither of them aware of the fact they were part of Mojovision's desire once again to give an audience what he believes they need. He removes them from their current situation and puts them into a noir-like show called, "Honey Moonlighting." Unfortunately this story ends quite horribly and before either can react, Rogue is tossed into the next story and we get a glimpse of a recast as we go into a story with a Sleeping Beauty-esque.

I must admit this new arc into the Gambit and Rogue series was a rather fun addition. Unfortunately we have no idea exactly what Mojovision has in store for our newly married couple especially now that Gambit has been recast with another character. What is going to happen is the fun of it all. I am really excited to see exactly which direction this series goes. It has been fun and watching Gambit and Rogue in many situations from space to domestic life to now being part of Mojovision's stories has been quite a roller coaster.

Gambit and Rogue have always been my favorite X-Couple and to finally have them married has always been a great dream for me. I know that there have been past events where they were a married couple of sorts and unfortunately I missed those but they really never received air time as they are right now and this series has been a great read.

Unfortunately where there are great stories sometimes the art has a bit of a misdirection. There were a couple of panels that were a bit weird. Otherwise I think these are mere hiccups and nothing more to be honest.

I am looking forward to seeing the next part of this storyline.
