The word Butte for some odd reason reminds me of these two bottoms that I had a threesome with back in college.

I don't know why that word makes me think of that memory but it does.

Hmm... I'll be right back...

There aren't any ferris wheels in shopping malls, that's for sure.

I'm really confused now. Should I be taking a bow or slink away in the darkness? :?

PRINCE OF POWER #1 (of 4)

I have loved Incredible Hercules and as much as I like Cho, Herc was the draw for me. I am not saying I dislike Amadeus I just like him better with Hercules, together they are a very fun team. That being said I thought this was a fun set up, I like seeing Banner alongside Cho and the last page has me looking forward to issue 2. I am not sure I like seeing Cho using so much brawn, I always liked that he used his brain and I love the pink thought thingys that Pak came up with. I don't think Cho is a strong enough character to carry a book so I am really hoping we have Herc back by the end of this mini because that is when I think both characters are at their best. I loved the art, I loved when Reilly Brown stepped in on a few issues of Incredible Hercules and I hope they keep him aboard when they start whatever new ongoing that comes from this.

STORY 7.5

ART - 8.5

OVERALL - 8

Obstructionist! You'd have a great view of the pit from the ferris wheel! It's people like you who keep Butte from being a hot vacation spot for the whole family. And by hot I mean possibly radioactive.

Aw shit, I wanted to beat the front page post

Well, PRINCE OF POWER 1 of 4

I found this book to be incredibly average. Hercules is dead and Cho is in charge of the olympus corporation or whatever. I didn't read Herc's book before, because I can't stand Pak's writing. FVL is good, but Pak? No.

The book's light tone instead of the dark and serious stuff I usually like is a fresh change of pace. That doesn't mean its a fun book for me though. I found its humor and jokes weren't very good or just not for me. I hardly laughed while reading this.

The purple boxes were a neat idea, but then they were used way too much. I actually like the mythology background. Greek myths have always been cool to me, and the Marvel pantheon is a neat idea, but used better in Secret Warriors. For every good thing I found in this book, I found a bad thing to counteract it.

I did like the art. Reily Brown will always be a personal favorite of mine dating back to his Cable and Deadpool book days. (That book was better than any Deadpool related thing out right now) It's just a solid style that you can't really hate on.

Story 5
Art 7

Overall 6

Are you reading Streets of Gotham too? What are your thoughts on that one?

Pak has been stinking it up as of late, but I hesitate to say he is a bad writer, because Planet Hulk was awesome.

I am and this last story started really well and ended with a thud for me. I need to reread it. My biggest problem with the Dini books are the unannounced fill ins. This is especially frustrating since I pre-order my books and sometimes this info is not in the solicit info. I skipped the first fill in with man bat though I've heard that was actually good and I just didn't read the mike huddleton issues but still own them because the info was bad. I think The Zsasz arc suffered and I need to reread it but Nyugen has been one of my favorite artists since Wild Cats 3.0 so he almost always makes the book readable for me.
