Just because the format was announced ahead of time doesn't mean that I can't say that it sucks. I didn't pick the book, I just posted my review of it. If it wasn't picked for the group I wouldn't have bought it because it was never something that interested me. Sorry for not following along with everyone else and loving the book.

It's a requirement in the job description. Just look at my predecessors. :twisted:

I don't think it's a valid criticism is all.

If you bought it knowing te format wasn't for you, then lo, the format wasn't for you, it's a cop out to use it as te basis of your criticism.

It's like saying 'ASM sucks. I hate Spider-Man and he sucks. He is the lead of ASM, terefore it sucks.'

The format of the series is a huge part of the experience and therefore criticizing it is fair game, IMO.

I'm not saying it isn't, but just think about this, you are agreeing with Tabu over the rest of comic dom... you might as well be yoni and darth's love child.

Same thing as my example, IMO.

We're not about reviewing format, are we?

We're about reviewing comics. The convergance of dialogue and art.

And guess what? These stories kicked ass for the most part.

Criticize a DC darling and the drones get their panties in a twist. It's just 52 #52 all over again.
