I've read the first X-Men: Forever trade. It's okay(which is good by Claremont standards). If the upcoming issue is anything like the trade, then it won't be worth the $4. Considering my budget, I'm passing on next week's pick.

This'll be a great week, no one but Jude reviews his pick and X-Men Forever will forever have the highest score in the SOD.

So review it and hate it then. Fill that niche.

Or read it in the shop and then write a review you could add to wine and kill Socrates with.

BE the hate.

Eh. As I mentioned earlier, I thought the first trade was okay, but I'm in no hurry to read more X-Men: Forever.

Supergirl #50

So this was a fun read. Sterling Gates takes a character that only Mark Waid has every made interesting. (He was a highlight of Trinity) and instead of adding new levels to him he makes him a one note boring character who seems to only be in the story so readers go "Hey remember him?" His role could have easily be filled by any of the characters current in Metropolis. But I digress, I honestly don't think this is completely new reader friendly.

Supergirl #50 pays off on a plotline that has been building for quite some time in the book. Insect Queen is kind of a one note villain as well, kind of lame. Dr. Light gets a huge push in my mind here and that was a highlight of the issue.

The back up was a fun short little story about Kara being trusted in the world and I thought it was just a fun little read, nothing too special. the art was strong in both stories and well I have to admire just how packed full of content the book is.

Score: 7.5


On a side note: Anyone hope that First Wave stays printed black and white? that was a cool little preview in a lot of dc books that I'm fully behind.

Supergirl 50

I hate it when these big marquee issues which SHOULD be perfect jumping on points are just filled with shit happening that a new reader will have no idea what's going on. The writing was ok but this felt like the last issue of a longer running arc that tied up some loose ends. This was NOT a good jumping on point and does nothing to get me to read anymore supergirl. The art looked nice in a lot of places and not so good in others. Igle can and has done good work before but this one didn't blow me away. The insect queen was kind of lame and that gangbuster dude totally sucks. on top of all this I paid 4.99 for this. Why the fuck was this 4.99???
