I liked this, this new world is ripe with storytelling possibilities, and there's lots of mysteries set up. I particularly liked the take on the Spirit, I'll be checking out that ongoing for sure, and probably Doc Savage too.

This is based on the fact that X-Men Forever is the most perfect comic of all time, and therefore represents the highest possible grade on the scale. :-D


can we vote to kick jude out for this confusing bullshit? :lol:

Why is this funny? When have I ever rated a comic badly out of spite?

My refusal to review Teen Titans and X-Men Forever was not done of spite, but out of love, I refuse to lower your averages!

So you didn't join your friends in reading books that you felt you wouldn't care for because you love us? :?

You'd have been more pissed off if I did review it and slated it.

I'm not actually pissed off about anyone who read the book and gave it a bad review. I'm more pissed off that people, even people who hadn't read an XMF comic, already decided they hated it before reading it, and either refused to give it a try or allowed their bias to cloud their review. If you don't like something, you don't like it. But I thought the purpose of this was to try books you wouldn't normally read with an open mind. XMF is the first book in a long time in here that I was reading anyway, and didn't get specifically for the group.
