Read full description of the books:
The Gambit monthly series by James Asmus and Clay Mann was a title that launched just before Avengers Vs. X-Men (AvX) precipitated the massive Marvel NOW! relaunch. It actually launched together with the seminal Hawkeye series of Matt Fraction and David Aja. In fact, the two trades that I owned, volumes 2 and 3 of the collected series, there are nods to this "sibling rivalry". (There's also the fact that both heroes integrate purple into their fighting togs.)
Volume three, "King of Thieves" was a collection of broken promises disguised as a graphic novel. Writer Asmus and main artist Mann managed to give it their ending but the story was slashed by at least three chapters. A pity, because it was just as the story was getting good.
The premature end of Gambit is lamented. It was a heist comic before its time. It might have had a superhero in the lead but it was the kind of variety critics who don't read comics wished for Marvel.
Gambit had further adventures and the events in his own series influenced the next one where he was part of a corporate X-Factor by Peter David. Asmus and Mann moved on and over to Valiant Comics.
