So far I think I'm the only one to give it a positive score, but let me clarify, I only gave it that score becuase it showcased Hank Pym. As stated the Thor stuff was borrrrrring.

I thought you were joking with your review. Guess I read it wrong.

I enjoyed the issue. It wasn't a ten, but it's not as low as what people seem to be scoring. So I overcompensated in my review.

Sorry guys. Work has been ridiculously busy hence my not even posting in last weeks thread or barely in the outhouse. Is this book worth the effort this week or not? If it's not I can just keep working and get back next week after opening.

I think if I'd interviewed someone and talked with them it'd be pretty tough to be negative toward their new work, and everyone seems to love the first issue. Maybe this wasn't Roger Langridge's strongest offering. The nostalgia for the olde Marvel stuff was clear.

I haven't read #3 yet, number 2 was disappointing. However, you are correct - Hobo Thor is the fucking coolest shit ever.

I prefer hobo Green Arrow myself. From Kevin Smith's first issue pencilled by Phil Hester. I can't seem to find the image though.

I will state that this issue is not as good as #1. But the hate in this is a little too strong in my eyes.
