As awesome as Blackest Night :?

And, I really can't find this book anywhere, I'll order it with my next box of comics, but that's three weeks away.

Sad thing is this is at least my second Punisher book....but it really was the best choice and well Remender and Moore that combination hasn't produced a dud yet.

Oh, I am glad it was your pick, it forces me to read it. I just find it odd that we love the bastard so much. You would think Marvel would want six ongoings for him.

I like Deadpool, I think Marvel is doing irreparable harm to their property. I just don't like Cosmic Marvel, it's not like I hunt down the threads and post about what crap they are, I can even respect to a certain level the story DnA are telling, but it's not my bag.... however, the post you are replying to was a reference to the fact that from the beginning I wasn't feeling Blackest Night and said so in my review. :P

Do people naturally fail at reading or something? I said over all the average was high. I get that you don't like it that's fine but the over grade of the group was that it was a good book. :wink:

Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows #1
I didn't get it. Plain and simple. Wish I could say I did and that I enjoyed it, but I felt totally lost. Writing seemed okay, not thrilled with the art but I've seen worse. All in all, I just didn't get it.

Of course I may like this more once I read next weeks pick, but that's just me.

Story: 6
Art: 5
My Score: 5.5

I might just do that. It really wasn't that I disliked it, I just couldn't get into it,

Yeah, that's why I think you should give it a shot from the beginning.

The art threw me at first, too.. and it took me an issue or two into the first trade before it clicked, but once it did I enjoyed it alot. The second trade was one of the most anticipated books for me.

Good choice. I've been looking for a reason to read a Remender story.
