Co-writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker will sign copies of the first two issues of Deadpool v Gambit for fans at Midtown Comics Downtown on Friday, July 22, 2016  at 7:00 pm.

Deadpool v Gambit #1 – 06/22/16

Gambit – one of the smoothest, best-looking operators in the world of the X-Men. Deadpool – one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags in the world of everything. Naturally, these guys got beef. But do you know what they have in common? A secret history of working together to pull con-jobs. That’s right, the grift is on as the Regeneratin’ Degenerate and the Ragin’ Cajun begrudgingly take on one last job together. Writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (THUNDERBOLTS, The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and artist Danilo Beyruth (GWENPOOL) lead us into the dirty underbelly of Deadpool and the squeaky-clean abs of Gambit!
