    Mine:

    1. Fabian Nicieza - His Gambit solo with Skroce is my favorite Gambit. Best portrayal. X-Men 33 is probably my favorite comic book issue. Gambit and Externals were great too.
    2. Chris Claremont - Created Gambit and made him cool. Probably the best Gambit fights were written by him.
    3. Howard Mackie - Created the most Gambit mythology and developed it even more in other series like Rogue or Storm centered Unlimited issue with Gambit and Jean. Really underrated.
    4. James Asmus - Great and fun solo with a good written Gambit after a long years of bad writing. What fans really needed. Creative use of powers. Not enough of Gambit action, h2h skills and agility were shown to move him higher on list. KT`s Gambit would kick the hell out from Asmus Gambit. I hope Asmus will get his chance to write Gambit again.

    5. Jeph Loeb - A mixed bag. Some good stuff and some are not like Gambit/Bishop. But his Wolverine/Gambit mini was great, Gambit #25 was awesome too and his work with Joe Mad always brings mostly good emotions. Was thinking to give that spot to Marjorie Liu because I like her writing and some great moments but overall her Gambit felt a little bit of one sided and not enough of complex character the way he is.
    For me it would probably go-

    1. Chris Claremont - THE best Gambit writer and not even close for me personally. I love his original work with Gambit on uncanny and the first three issues of abjectiveless X-Men and I love his later work with the character as well(especially on X-Treme). There is just this certain quality to his Gambit that no other writer can quite capture(same for his Storm and Rogue as well). I can't even describe it. He gives Gambit the perfect combination of confidence, talent, charm, intelligence, and mystery(even after all his secrets were revealed).
    2. Fabian Nicieza - Great Gambit writer. Loved the solo and his work with Gambit on abjectiveless X-Men. Gambit #5 is one of, if not, my favorite Gambit issues.
    3. Scott Lobdell - I think a lot of my love for his work can be contributed to Joe Maduriera, but I do greatly enjoy Lobdell's Gambit. I will admit I enjoy the angst between Gambit and Rogue in his work as well. The space arc in Uncanny leading up to the Trial of Gambit are some of my favorite comics.
    4. James Asmus - Great work with the character. Did a good job showing Gambit embrace both his thieving and heroic sides.
    5. Kelly Thompson - Greatly enjoyed Rogue and Gambit and Mr. And Mrs. X. Wish she could have stayed on the characters longer.

    After then it would probably go-
    Howard Mackie- Good Gambit writer, and laid a great foundation for the character.
    Tom Taylor- Wish he could have worked with him more.
    Mike Carey- Blasphemy I know, but outside of the Rogneto abomination, I enjoyed a lot of his work on the character and he gave him a few really awesome moments unlike most writers.
    Marjorie Liu- I enjoyed the character work, but her Gambit was largely unimpressive outside of that.

    Huge list! All stars
    Great Claremont description. I felt it.

    Yes. Carey`s Gambit in Messiah Complex was awesome.

    Definitely would love to see Tom Taylor writing more Gambit. RED 11 is one of the best ever and Gambit was cool in Enemy of state 2 too. All-New Wolverine 16 is probably one of the coolest his entries ever when he came to save brainwashed Laura and destroyed the whole floor and blow up Laura into pieces with a single card.

    More scans how badass were Gambit and Sunfire as Marauders. A few pages ago posted how they fought Bishop

    OMG! What a relief. It's nice knowing there are still fans who love the artwork of Chris Bachalo.

    Agreed. Never leave home without it, as the old saying goes.

    I LOVE Bachalo. I get why he's not everyone's cup of tea, though. That Gambit image, in particular, is one of the first to come to mind when I think of Gambit, weirdly enough
    Make Good Art

    The only issue I had with Bachalo's Gambit was that he looked too babyfaced

    Oh shoot, yes to Tom Taylor! He would make my list for certain. My only complaint is I want MORE Gambit from him.

    Ahah, definetely! I feel the same. Taylor is rumoured on Moira book. I hope he will get also a team book with Remy. Tom always writes Gambit with respect.

    Reread first issue of All-New X-Factor.
    It was ok, I guess. Giandomenico`s art is the best part of it. Very expressive. Felt more as #0 then first issue. Probably should have been Giant size and combined with #2. I think it would be better.

    Bad: Gambit got caught on thieving mission. His banter with Logan was terrible. I doubt that someone even cared about ending cliffhanger.

    Good: I liked Gambit/Polaris and with Snow. Interaction with Quicksilver was the highlight for me.

    Anka`s cover is great. Remember how excited I was when this book got announced at comic con and I was reading live translation.

    Yeah, the art was a big highlight from this series and so was the banter. Also the cats!

    I have been back and forth on picking up this trade for all the reasons you brought up.

    Yeah. One of these books that you want to like but it is just not good enough to make you satisfied.
