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...
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
