Yeah, I think I've had enough drama. And this book might end up being good. You never know!

As for the Punchy thing. Umm... I know it's all meant in jest, but it's really a horrible thing to joke about.

I guess if you had your way, the group would be you and no one else covering a different Bendis book every week.

and furthermore, liking something and being critical of it are two different things... I can like something despite its flaws. I can give something a 5, but still really enjoy it. They are not purely inclusive concepts.

For example, Citizen Kane is the best movie I have ever seen. Time Bandits is my favorite movie.

Hulk is a terrible comic, but I find it immensely entertaining. On the other hand Planetary is the bar all comics should be shooting for. You can have both, but if I am reviewing Hulk, I have to say what its flaws are and why it is worthwhile despite those flows... As in GSWOML #1 - I think it would be a worthwhile chapter in the eventual collection but as a comic that I was expected to pay $4.99 for, it fell short of me referring to it as a must buy, especially to someone that had not read it from Wolverine #66...

I am fat and hairy, no one wants to see me naked and I have a little penis, so in the end, why waste your time?

Drama, I can make that happen in spades...

Planetary #27 is out next week, maybe Mr Batman can pick that we can see if you feel that it was unnecessary and that the plot ended in #26 and how it was more expensive than any of the previous issues, and with the 2 year delay it should have been son much better :P
