You mean besides Stature?

I think the tumblr-style recap is cute, but I'm assuming it's strictly temporary, if not a one off. If it's permanent, it's going to get old real fast. Almost as old as the posters here. :wink:

issue #1 was shit. i dropped this book like a hot turd.

Issue 2 was a step up.

More plot beats than character bits and that always helps when the title's new and the characters are established anyway.

I still don't like McKelvie on the superhero-y pages but the white boxes page and any talky out-of-costumey page is lovely stuff. Almost bacony.

Tumblr recap page wasn't bad, the young people do like to tumbl but so do I. If #3 is a LiveJournal I'll be very amused.

Good issue, second best kiddy super heroes comic of the week.

Does it affect the characters and the story in any way??

Because if it doesn't and is really just a cute way to have a recap page, then Punchy's rage is a tempest in a teapot. :roll:

What is "an extremely ironic statement, considering the source?" I'll take forum memes for 200, Alex.

And the answer is "We SHOULD know this: Jude is another person who fails to understand irony!" :P

As I said, if it affected the characters and story in any way, THEN it would matter, and I'd say let the Punchy rage. If it's just a somewhat novel way to recap and will never affect the characters and story, then what's the worry?? ESPECIALLY if, as someone mentioned and I also suspect, it's a one-off!
