If he wasn't wasting all his time making counters to count down to nothing, Jude could do things for this thread

You've got it backwards. There's a button that creates a thread in the forums after you create an article on the front page.

(It's disabled for the RG stuff so that it doesn't create duplicate threads.)

The Amazing Spider-Man 626

I didn't think this was that bad. Certainly not a 10 either, :lol:

I love the voice FVL has for spidey. He's pretty funny and less cornball then Slott. (I hate Slott's writing.) This was a fun single issue with FVL trying to get his own creation some spotlight. I liked it quasi tying into current events with The Hood. Also liked seeing Tombstone again, but he is kinda jobber here. It was nice to see Michelle, a crap character thus far, at least attempt to get some depth.

Like everyone else, the main problem here is for the art. Gaydos is alright, but he should not be on this book. His Tombstone was just terrible.

Story 7
Art 3
Overall 5

This is how a mega-event should be written. A lot of things happen and an ending is reached. At this point, you could stop reading comics forever and never wonder how the event finished.

Somebody asked where they should start if they wanted to get into Blackest Night. The answer is Blackest Night #1, but if you want to fully enjoy all that is happening, you have to start with Green Lantern: Rebirth. That is how far back the roots for this series go.

Somebody who only reads the Wickipedia recaps might very well say that it doesn't sound that good. That's because it is best enjoyed by reading it, not just summaries...something that seems to happen all too often. There is more physical and emotional impact through the direct involvement of watching a football game as opposed to read a story in a newspaper.

I suppose the DC haters, the Geoff Johns haters, and the Dan DiDio haters are going to find ways to tear this apart. More power to them. This is Johns's best work to date. Hopefully, we will get more of this in the future.

The art is superb. There are only a few places where it is not perfectly clear what is happening, not on every page, as is often the case today.

If you are a superhero fan, this is the best it gets for big events. On that basis, I give it a 9.9. It's almost perfect, and is on a par with Watchmen.
