    Neat! I got He-Man toys and watched the cartoon as a little kid, but I've never read the minicomics. I don't even remember them coming with the toys. Of course I probably didn't care at that age and just tossed them aside with the packaging.

I'm guessing the stories will be about as deep as the old Marvel and DC Hostess ads! But that's OK. I didn't buy them for intellectual depth. I'm pretty sure they'll be fun - and having some fun is why I bought them.

    I pre-ordered X-Men: Gambit: The Complete Collection Vol. 1, which collects the first awesome 11 issues of Gambit's first ongoing comic(plus an annual and some other material) written by Fabian Nicieza, and largely illustrated by Steve Skroce(one of my favorite comic artists). I can't wait to get it and not have pull out my individual comics to read the run. It's supposed to arrive tomorrow.

Sounds cool. I really think Gambit was a wasted opportunity for Marvel, and I blame the Rogue romance, which I've always despised. Gambit should be a con man, a thief, and a womanizer, who somehow ends up saving the day despite himself. He tried to be the man Rogue wanted and it ruined him as a character.
