not really, half the time it is me and puncy/twigg arguing about stupid shit. We wildly disagree on comics all the time. I jumped on you because it was the kettle calling the pot black.

That gives Amazing Spider-Man #617 a group score of 8.49. For a mainstream super-hero book, that there is a pretty damn good score.


That might be the most pretentious thing I've read on this site ...


Thank you! :-D

For serious though, my statement wasn't pretentious at all. It was factual based on the Review Group's history. Only four books that fall under the category of what I would consider a "mainstream super-hero book" have scored higher...

Four Eyes #1 9.42
Jonah Hex #50 9.18
Local #6 9.10
Fell #7 9.03
Runaways #24 9.01
Blackest Night #1 8.87
Batman #686 8.84
Fables #1/#54 8.83
Ghost Rider #34 8.82
Fell #5 8.81
Beasts of Burden #1 8.73
Jonah Hex #33 8.70
Loaded Bible 3: Communion 8.68
Unknown Soldier #1 8.66
Incognito #1 8.65
Daredevil #500 8.62
Dark Tower #1 8.61
Pax Romana #1 8.59
Fantastic Four: The End #5 8.55
Unwritten #1 8.53
Amazing Spider-Man #617 8.49
Proof #6 8.48
Invincible #42 8.35
Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. #8 8.34
Echo #1 8.34

When the fuck did BKV write New Avengers?

Do you mean Young Avengers? If so, you're a stupid fuck. Allan Heinberg wrote Young Avengers.
