I'm excited for next week, I want to give XMF another chance. It helps that the preview art looks a lot better this time around.

cause it is a group and we are supposed to be giving books the benefit of the doubt, not only that being critical on at least some level of an objective manner. This one has a good artist, so I am hoping that makes a difference.

I would rather that if people aren't going to review it through obstinance that they just keep mum about why. That would prevent a lot of butt hurt, until Punchy demands that you be kicked out of the fucking group. This week fucking HOJ, Amlah and I went out of our way to give more people an opportunity to review this book and no one cared. That sucks in my opinion.


i wanted to read this weeks, thought i had it on my pull and obviously i didn't. :?

and like i said, i'll just be reading the thread next week but forcing x-men forever on people again after it was his last pick....change it up jude. :roll:

just not in a great mood right now. Plus even if I asked you for a copy it wouldn't get here until next week and it wouldn't add to the over all score at all. I like doing stuff on the actual week in question.

The art looks SO much better.\

My last zero was a joke relating to Jude banning Fourthy, I meant to change it back.

I think that was during your brief tenure as Broken Frontier Forum Czar. He said he banned you for your low XMF score, I figured I wanted to get banned too, so I lowered my score to a 0. But I meant to change it back, I just forgot.

Man, you sure got those forums going though!

Lee, you read Doc Savage #1 last week? I ain't gonna lie, I intended to give it a try but it just didn't read that well when I skimmed it.

Plus, so much beefcake

Jude Terror wrote:The last week we did X-Men forever, it was that Cyclops story that, while enjoyable, didn't represent how awesome XMF has been, particularly in recent weeks. Just read the last few issues to see how fucking awesome Sabretooth has been written, his relationship with Daisy Dugan, or the Storm issue (issue 15) to see that this book has some really awesome things going on. Claremont has been saddled with revolving artists which kinda hurts the book (though what are you gonna do, it's bi-weekly and it's rare an artist can keep up with that). This book has Takeda on it, and it looks very good. And as an annual, and form talking to Chris a few weeks ago about it (to be published tomorrow), it's a great jumping on point, being about the nature of the series but not directly part of the ongoing plot. I flirted with picking something else, but I want people to give this book a chance.


I'm going to stay out of the thread because I don't think it's going to be pretty. :lol:

I didn't mind the last XMF book we reviewed, I mean I am not gonna add to my pull list or anything but it was better than a lot of the crap we review... I would take 10 XMF's over 1 Blackest Night.

I don't know much about the X-Men, aside from my knowledge of the movies yet I was able to follow the middle of an arc story we reviewed no problem... I got a headache trying to read Blackest Night (1 & 8 ) which we reviewed here, I understand why most people loved BN but I don't read much DC so I was completely out of the loop and BN was definitely not new reader friendly.

I'm in, let's not forget the whole point of the Review Group, guys! It's about trying new things someone else recommends or wants to try, not about reviewing books you like or already read. You can do that any day of the week anyway.

All the (real, non-joking) whining whenever someone chooses a book is dumb.

I've not been able to get to the store for Kill Shakespeare yet but it should pop up early next week. I have quite a lot of books already next week, so XMF is probably gonna get skimmed in store. I just hope it's not overly wordy and bogged down in tedium like every other Claremont book since I was born.
