Don't lie! :P


You're right, I did! It was tongue-in-cheek, though, I had no idea you'd be such a creep about it and wish I'd quit the group so vocally.

How was I to know it was tongue-in-cheek?

Well, it was obviously a reply to your earlier sentiments that discussion of the value had no place in a review--more and more reviews on CBR and Comics Bulletin (those are mostly the only places I read regularly) discuss the price-point and how it affects their overall scores. I wanted you to see that it isn't the great evil you seemed to think it is. Also, "and yes, Punchy" are not recognized as inflammatory words anywhere in the world.

Just saw a spoiler. All I can say is I hope she put up a fight. :(

You dismissed my opinion before I even said anything.

Just because so called 'professional' reviewers take it into account doesn't mean it's good or correct. I personally don't hold much stock in many comics reviews, many are just glorified spoiler rundowns or attempts to be funny while disparaging something or sometimes thoughtless suckjobs of a particular creator. The critical comics community is mostly bullshit, and I think it's things like focusing on pricepoint which have led to this situation.

I'm not saying I'm better, I just try to be.

Which opinion, that I should quit the group or quit posting? You didn't have an opinion, you don't even have the book yet, you started in with the "moaning" crap, etc. right away. Of course I dismissed it, but if you thought telling me I should stop posting and the rest of it was going to get you anything but a verbal reaming, you were mistaken.

Oops, this should've been a response to Black Orchid.


I gotcha now. Yeah, that was disturbing to be sure. I didn't want to think about how that would've ever gone down, but I guess I assumed she had gone bad from radiation as well? I'm glad that wasn't a scene in the issue, though.

After reading the story, I can only assume that "Hulk healing factor" does not equal "Wolverine healing factor" in the Millar-verse.

Still, it was entertaining.

So after three pages I'm honestly not sure I'm sticking around anymore. Honestly Punchy's over all attitude as well as jay and there constant bickering really, really kills what has made this review group fun for me. To be really blunt about it, I'm sick of the shit.

I enjoy talking about the comics and a good debate but acting like children and burying everyone's reviews under the idiotic drama is not cool.

I'm looking forward to reading this tomorrow, but i'm tired of this constant bullshit spamming the group for pages.
