Forgetless looks like it could be cool (I like the preview art that was with the solicitation) but it could also be a train wreck.

The Disney book could be cool, but I don't see any potential for it beyond maybe being just a nice kids book.

People will probably have trouble finding both of those, but not nearly as much trouble as they would have if they were trying to track down the Black Jesus book.

I guess I should have chosen a different book. My apologies to all.

Starlord said:

"Still, if you haven't really been reading this book, it may not appeal to you at all."

Starlord was right. It doesn't appeal to me. In fact, it seems almost nothing chosen for the Review Group appeals to me these days. I praised the Hulk family versus Wolverine family book, but that's about it. The smut peddler at the LCS and I both thought it was the second best Wolverine story ever.

Maybe the problem is me. Maybe not.

I read this comic in the store. (I have privileges. I work for them 2 or 3 days a year.) I'm so glad I didn't have to spend money on it.

It's not that bad a comic, but I found it dull. Tony Stark is dead again. Cap is alive again. Poor Pepper Potts has been used as a mule. Her body harbors the drug that is Tony's Viagra. Perhaps Tony is a necrophiliac...Pepper dies and Tony gets a stiffy.

And the constant flashbacks without indications of being flashbacks...until you guess that the differently colored panels are flashbacks...or are they hallucinations. Can't anybody tell a linear story anymore? Well, I guess Image Untied was linear, but that wasn't a story, it was just a bunch of millionaires masturbating on a donut.

I'm giving this a 6. It's not crappy, but it's also not very good. I have no interest in reading the rest of the story.

For those interested, I finally reviewed Jonah Hex.

And I also reviewed what I consider the Best Comic of the Week, although that week was...well, you'll see when it was.

didn't we review that once all ready? I don't see reviews being substantially different for different issues, either you like the concept or you don't, then it boils down to how well that issues jokes worked for you.
