THE TUESDAY TUSSLE: Francis Manapul vs Gambit and Rogue

The Tuesday Tussle; the biggest illustrators squaring off against pop's biggest icons - icons you never thought they'd touch. This week Francis Manapul, the guy who had fans weeping over the love of Superboy and Wonder Girl in Adventure Comics, finds himself tackling the romance of 90's comics - Gambit and Rogue. Fight!

WINNER: Manapul. Seriously, is there a character this guy can't slam out of the reach of any competition? Here, he not only shows what a formidable pair the X-lovebirds were, but also how iconic their 90's looks were. Let's see you top that Scott and Jean!

    just a quick note. I've been reading your blog for a long time, and have enjoyed it a lot. The one thing that has bothered me, however, has been the consistent misspelling of Rogue's name. Not a very big deal, but just think it could be easily corrected.

  2. He Anon - thanks for taking to time to let me know you enjoy the blog! Bit embarrassed that you caught such a major typo as there's never an excuse for gettin' a gal's name wrong, real or fictional, but fixing every instance of it tonight after work will sure teach my two typing fingers the error of their ways!

    Good to have you aboard!
