Let's make a solemn vow that the Ultimate Avengers thread won't totally be about Ebay.

IF it isn't a boring ass book like DOom Patrol that no one wants to talk about... it just may not be.

Everything I know about Doom Patrol I learned from Mike Allred's issue of Solo. Which is to say, I really don't know much about them at all. After reading this issue I'm pretty much left with the conclusion that they're a self-hating humorless group of miserable fucks that I really don't care to read about especially if boredom is going to be the first item on the menu. The art was equally bland and even confusing in places.

I've never been much of a Metal Men fan, to me they're more silly than funny so in that respect the creative team delivered exactly what I was expecting. The Maguire art was perfect, but I wouldn't want to read much more than 10 pages at a time of this.

DP Story: 1
DP Art: 5
MM Story: 5
MM Art: 9
Overall: 4

Sorry Junior, one of the perks of my advanced age is talking about whatever I want whenever I want.

I thought we, as a Review Group, were at least clear on the idea you have to read something to know whether you like it or not?

EDIT: The only exemption being one of Punchy's reviews.

The other perk is ignoring annoying young people, which I excel at with a shop in a college town.

All else is naught but extra hairs.

fucking hairs growing in the weirdest ass places.

So, you know what was more exciting than Doom Patrol? Sunday in Church someone passed out and the paramedics got called, cutting the service short while somehow still being released later than usual.

I seem to remember saying that this was a poor choice, over and over and listing my reasons for why it would be a bad book. But, hey what do I know?
