Sales are not indicative of quality. The Eisner means shit to me as well, before anyone mentions it.


Well, you may not like it, but at the end of the day, the book has virtually everything going for it.

Sales, critical acclaim, positive word of mouth..


You just have to accept that you're wrong. :D

You must be on crack.. :D

I dropped Madame Xanadu like a bad habit after the first boring ass trade, and Echo is pretty decent, but far from living up to the hype I heard about it.

Which is nice because I prefer to ignore the fact that the Knaufs ever happened. :P

D'Amarta is good on Captain America, but that's about it.

Have you seriously read Haunted? It's one of my favourite arcs of the decade.

I labored through their first arc in hopes that it would get better. It didn't.

I could go back and read the stuff that happened after I dropped it that people said was good, but we reviewed that issue in the middle or right after Haunted and it was boring just like their first arc so I don't wanna.

Pepper Potts as a superhero. Please explain to me why this is a good idea.

Is this the first time Pepper has had armor? I'd be kinda surprised if it was, it makes sense that with as long as she's been around Tony it would happen sooner or later.

Someone could write story where it made sense for Alfred to dress up in a costume and go save Batman or something, it wouldn't make it a good story.

Also, I wanna say, I'm usually not so... confrontational, when it comes to comics discussions, it's the wuss' way out, but if at some point I object to anyone's opinion, it's never going to be a personal attack.

Except for Chris, that guy sucks.

...and it was a search and rescue suit with no weapons so it's not like she was out taking on Hydra and The Mandarin.

Didn't they recently make Alfred Owlman in The Outsiders or something equally retarded?

My problem with Pepper being Rescue (apart from the silly name) is that it's just another character who's useful in their role as a non-powered support being dragged into superheroics for no real reason, what does she gain as a character?
Also i don't think Fraction's been writing her that well, from the "oh i have a chest device but i don't want to be a weapon rubbish in the first arc (as well as the magnetic floating thing and Rand copout that was a really weak scene) to last issues "Why should Stark get to live when Happy didn't", she asked Tony to turn off his life support for godsakes.

Also the armor design sucks but that's just one of my problems with Larocca.
