I've got no problem with her, but she's not the kind of artist who'll get me to pick up a book based on art alone.

You know what I'm saying, there are usually few reviews for any book not Marvely or DCish.

For my tastes there's just not much out next week I'm interested in at all though.

I can't think of a single artist where I'll buy a book just for their art.

If IDW would put Byrne on something other than licensed properties, I'd buy it.

I bought the Milo Manara X-Women book just to see his hilariously gropey take on the characters.

John Byrne was one of my favorite artists when I was young and he and Claremont's run started on X-Men. But I really lost interest in his style and hated what he did with Doom Patrol.

Really? I liked it, but I had never read any Doom Patrol prior to that.

I'm going with Thor: The Mighty Avenger #3 by Roger Landridge & Christopher Samnee. These guys have been hitting it out of the park and more people should be reading this. This is actually better than the MU Thor book.

Awesome. Roger Langridge is one of the nicest people I've talked to, and I can't think of anything bad that he's written.

Story - The Story was interesting. We open with a chase and instantly I see we are dealing with the super natural.

The 1 legged hero seems cool but honestly not much happened in this issue. There was no character introduction. Near the end of the issue I learn his name is Henry Baltimore but that is all I know about him.

Its only because someone else posted that this comic is taken from the middle of the book that I knew to not expect to really understand anything. The story is straight forward. He is hunting for a vampire (don't know why) He was led to this city, he cleared it out of vampires but the locals still detained him. A female interest will help him escape and move on. To much background was missing for me to feel compelled to read any further. To me Baltimore is your typical bad ass protanganist, but i don't even know why he is so bad ass. This comic definitely should of had a recap page to explain the parts of the book I am unfamiliar with.





Art - the works and I enjoyed it reminds me of powers. but I enjoyed it and it fit the mood of the story

Story - 6
art - 6
overall - 6

I just gave up trying to read one of the worst-written reviews I've ever seen on CBR for the latest Doom Patrol issue. Sentences like these are what did it:

"There are scenes in Rita’s story only Matthew Clark could have rendered should tussles."

"I was (and will continue) to see Beast Boy in action with the DP."

It's like it was translated online from Mandarin or something. I just gave up trying to figure any of it out.
