Jude has a point about the art though, it'll be gorgeous.


I hate the ash cloud.

Maybe the Brits can review 2000 AD instead?

I don't have my trade with me at Uni :(

It's either 2000 AD, Viz, or The Beano.

I thought Twigglet has never even seen a 2000AD prog? :?

Either way I won't read it, mine don't get here until the end of the month.

Kill Shakespeare #1
I guess I should review this now... it was okay. As other reviewers have stated trying to compare this to Fables and LoEG is silly and right away that booms expectations. I am really not that well rehearsed in Shakespeare, I mean I know who the characters are but I can't recall much of the specifics of his tales. I am not sure if this was good enough for me to check out the next issue, I dunno if it was poor execution or the fact that I just didn't give a shit... maybe both. The art was actually not so bad, nothing extraordinary but it wasn't offensive to look at either. I think I may have enjoyed this a bit more if I paid attention in high school when they made me read this shit for real.

STORY - 5

ART - 7

OVERALL - 6.5

Review of Kill Shakespeare

Thanks to the only good Dutchman alive, Amlah :D

Just finished reading this, it wasn't awful but it certainly wasn't very good either. I have a minor recollection of characters like hamlet, othello and such since we read those plays in school. The art was ok, not really my style but it didn't detract from the story. I like pirates, i really do, and i'd love there to be a book out there where i could get my fix of pirates but this will not be that book. The writing is bland and the supernatural aspects didn't help. It was also a bit confusing at times and i had to re-read a few panels to understand better what was going on. Overall this wasn't a bad book but its in no way good enough for me to check out issue 2.

Story 4
Art 5
Overall 4.5

We don't know the exact reasons why yet - could be due to Cortez's effect on burnout and having recently touched rogue, or could be due to their connections through Mystique, Rogue and Nightcrawler touched, and when Rogue's powers activated, they switched powers. We've yet to see the repercussions of this.

Hmm, I'll try and find an old Claremont back-issue then.
