Book Review: Okay I am going to admit something.

This was the first comic I ever collected. This was the comic that started it all.

And this was the comic that has been my absolute favorite of all time. No other comic book has ever come close to being a favorite like this one. Of course there are the ones where I love the cover but this one still beats them all.

Why?, you ask.

Because it was Gambit and Rogue's first date. It was everything I had always wanted for them and even more when Rogue tried to tell Gambit her real name and he just put his finger to her lips.

Their romance has always been my favorite. It was the main reason I had dived into the X-Men universe in the first place and this cemented them as my all-time favorite couple. Not even Logan and Jean could beat them (and I love those two as a couple!).

This comic is highly recommended and one of the few I think those who love Gambit and Rogue will truly enjoy reading.
