When fans in the comic world hear the name Chris Claremont the first thing that comes to their minds is X-Men. I mean why wouldn’t it? Claremont, who has worked on many X-Men titles from 1975 to 1991 is making a return to the X-men world with a new Gambit series.
LEGENDARY WRITER CHRIS CLAREMONT RETURNS TO THE X-MEN IN NEW SERIES
This past week Marvel put out a very simple but extremely exciting press release. “Chris Claremont and artist Sid Kotian launch an all-new GAMBIT series in 2022. Stay tuned next year for more details.” The press release may have only been two sentences but it is enough to make X-men fans excited. Very little is known or has been released on this series, but I am sure Gambit and X-Men fans will be excited about its release.
Chris Claremont took over the X-men stories in 1975 and had many classics under his name including X-men #1 that Claremont co-wrote with Jim Lee and still stands as the best-selling comic book of all time. Claremont along with Lee also was the creator of Gambit, whose first appearance was in The Uncanny X-Men Annual #14 in 1990.
