I have read TONS and TONS of graphic novels, however this one stands out in my mind as one of the best. In the 90's (this may shock a lot of you) wolverine was not the favorite character of at least 50 percent of x-men fans. There was another character that had much of the spotlight, Gambit. This character was mysterious, a thief, whom none of the x-men knew much about. This story was about some of his mysteries, it had great art and afterwards Gambit gained many fans. I recommend any fan of comics to give this a try. The art is amazing and I believe you would like it.

When it comes to X-Men stories, this one really stands out in my memory. I read it when originally released, in individual issues and I still reread it--it's stood the test of time for me. Both writing and art are stellar and work perfectly together. It is a fabulous love story with a great air of mystery to it. Gambit & Rogue get caught up in the secrets of his family and his past, with New Orleans (pre-Katrina) as the backdrop to this tale. It's always night here, and there is always something or someone lurking in the shadows. A great stand alone story!
