Jude, what's the point in me or Doombug doing a review when you'll insult Amlah for a pretty well-reasoned review?

We can't win here.

Sorry I didn't like XMF, Jude. I wanted to like it because I like goofy stuff, I just didn't find it to be a good comic book.

I had just read Supergirl 50 :evil:

I honestly think he wants people to like it. Being pushy about it isn't gonna help though. I'm glad he likes it.

It's having the opposite effect if anything.

I've checked BF a couple of times today to see if your review was live yet. I need to see this reasoning on how you could give the Helen Slater story an 8. :P

It's simple, it isn't the mess that was the Gates story I just read. you aren't gonna see a whole lot of reason (and it goes live sometime tomorrow), I really don't talk about it.

The Gates story was good! The Slater back-up was pretty, but empty (like Supergirl!)

Oh, boy, I can't wait for my review to go live... Supergirl 50 was EVERYTHING that is wrong at DC. It was almost brilliant in a meta way.

But... I liked it... I thought I was supposed to be a DC hater? I'm confused!

If it's anything like your XMF review, I very much doubt that.

I agree with the back up being pretty but the Gates story was not good if you were a new reader.

I thought Supergirl was typical of a DC book. A stupid bad guy, boring talking, average dialogue. You sort of enjoy it but forget what happens 5 minutes later. Fluff.
