Name That Gambit Artist!

All November-long, I will be sharing four panels featuring a comic book character. They will each be drawn by four separate pencilers. I will be featuring only pieces of art where the penciler did full pencils (as otherwise it would be way too difficult). Your challenge is to, simply put, name that artist!

E-mail me your guesses to bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Do NOT make guesses in the comments section! After a week, I’ll post the correct answers on the archive page along with whoever guessed them correctly. You don’t have to name the issues the panels came from, but if you’d like to, knock yourself out.

Read on for the four Gambit panels…





Good luck and have fun!


I’m not sure who that artist is in the fourth panel, but if the character wasn’t holding a pair of glowing red aces, I never in one thousand years would have guessed it was Gambit.

The last one is Dorothy Spinner of the Doom Patrol, not Gambit.

God that last image is awful

… that last one is freaky deaky, regardless of WHO it is! Yikes!

Not sure about 2 and 4, but 1 looks like it might be Andy Kubert and 3 sort of looks like Roger Cruz’s old style.

That last image is actually legendary artist George Tuska, and it is from the recent Marvel from the Vault: Gambit & the Champions.

The reason #3 looks like Roger Cruz’s old style is because Roger Cruz’s old style consisted of ripping off the actual artist of #3.

Did Art Thibert ink #3??? Looks like his 90s style.

David’s Doom Patrol comment has made me spit out all the water that was previously in my mouth.

Do NOT make guesses in the comments section!

Why is this rule so seemingly hard to follow?

#3 makes me think Rob Liefeld, just because Gambit looks constipated. (Hard to tell with Cyclops, as the visor covers the eyebridge where he puts the constipation lines on guys.)

The fourth one reminds me of Dr. Doom posing as Reed Richards in Fantastic Four #10.

Yeeesh. Gambit’s had some horrible, horrible artists. No frikkin’ wonder I lost interest in him.

The only one I can even guess at is #3. (And that’s only ’cause I can’t decide if it’s the artist I’m thinking of, or just someone trying to copy him.) I’d love to know who drew #4, though, if only to make it easier to avoid his work in the future.

#4 is by George Tuska, from the recent “From the Vault” ish, yeah?

Unfortunately, there will be no future work from the #4 artist…

All four are from Wally Wood’s lesser-known work, “22 Panels That Never Work.”

David, when I saw the pic #4 my first thought was also of Dorothy Spinner…and it’s not too far away from Miss de Poincy from Corto Maltese and the cards and would be a fitting motif for her too (lines would work too, except for the whole charging thing), but the body type is wrong…

Weird, number #4 is the only one of these I have a copy of. Can’t be bothered to go grab it out of its pile, because I have no clue of the rest

In the last panel, maybe Gambit got turned into a Neanderthal .

Oh, I missed that no guesses in the comments thing. My bad!

That fourth panel looks like it was drawn by George Tuska. At least to me it does.

Will there be a big reveal? ´cuz I’m dying to know who made the fourth panel

The 4th one was published early this year.

Why does Gambit resemble a simian in that last panel? LOL

1.Dave Ross (he used to be the artist on “West Coast Avengers” during the 90’s)
2.I’d go with someone like Ben Herrera
3.Chap Yeap (you know one of those 90’s-Liefeld-clones-from-Extreme-Studios ^^)
4….Dunno…Maybe,yeah right,that guy!

The last panel is Acuna or Jansen.

You know, when I said the fourth panel looked like George Tuska’s work, I was only making a comment. I had no idea Tuska was still drawing comics when Gambit and didn’t think for a moment it could’ve been his work. I’m actually kinda surprised it was.
