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

I was perfectly content before I was born.
