I figure that means I have to go to one extreme or another.

To be fair, when I was going through my trade collection as I moved, I noticed that the writer most represented in my library was Bendis. So, I'm not exactly a hater of Bendis. Just of this book.


I don't blame you, Doctor Strange has been on one of the worst losing streaks in comic book history.

That's your solution to everything. You writing Strange does not cure herpes.

If he does than we just need to convince him to read it.

The New Avengers #3

The only thing new about this title is the numbering; same old garbage just a different month. Let's ignore the fact that Bendis only wants Luke Cage, Spider-Man, and Wolverine to be the competant heroes. Let's ignore the fact that the banter between Spider-Man and Thing sounds exactly the same as the disembodied voices of the villains. Let's even ignore the fact that the entire concept of New Avengers is just a poor man's take off on Giffon's Justice League. Even if you strip all of that away you are still left with..............

Story: 1
Art: 7
My Score: 3


Tiny Titans #31

Sorry Old Man, as much as I love this book, this issue just didn't do it for me. The "in" jokes seem to be a bit too far in on this one. The stuff with Jor-El and the monkey at the end fell horribly flat, as did most of this issue. I still like this book and it did put a small smile on my face a couple of times, but I've read better from these guys. I wish I could give it a higher score, but I just can't.

Thank you kindly, sir.

Also, don't buy #3 and #4. Go in knowing nothing. That's what I'm doing.

if everyone did that I would expect lots of reviews just like this:
What the fuck was that?

story 0
art 10
score 3, no seriously I had no idea what the fuck was going on but damn it was pretty but not that pretty.

plus at the end of the day, I have a hard time reviewing things if I can't be fair to it. Like I would have never written a review of Scott Pilgrim volume six, because I knew that the concept was not for me, but more importantly, I knew that the way it played out would be at least okay to the target audience.

a miniseries is a graphic novel for all intents and purposes. to review issue 5 and not issue 1-4 and 6 or to go into it without the knowledge of what happens in 1-4 is unfair to the book. It is like picking up a random novel turning to page 322 and reviewing the next twenty pages but never looking at the rest of the book.

If we were doing old school comics, you would at least get a feel for the book from one issue. However, that is not the case with a modern book.

Of course, I am not espousing that everyone do that, they can review however they want.

[quote="thefourthman"][/quote]Don't be hijacking my review, time traveler!!

Seriously, that's the point. I wanted to pick something that would be hard to follow along simply because I think a person should be able to pick up a random issue of a series and know what's happening. With Garrison, it's by Wildstorm so it should be easier to find then most indie comics and I doubt anybody in this group is reading it.

Tiny Titans #31

Like New Avengers, I didn't care for this either. The jokes fell flat and the story was boring even for a children's book. Art-wise, it was okay.

In the interest of fairness, I'm giving it a 3 too.
