Well, that's another thing entirely. It worked for me, but I can understand if somebody feels differently on that count.
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

SilverPhoenix - Wow, that is one of the best reviews I have seen in the thread in a long time. Well thought out, researched even? Great stuff.

At the end of the day, accessibility is just as subjective, what seems natural to you may not be to someone else.

I am a little dumb founded by the more than one reviewer who found it inaccessible, but it is not like it is something you can really, truly argue about.

Nope.

I'll add reviews when titles match up to my pull list or if something like this has the potential to be enjoyed by me.

Those readers' reviews were consistently problematic for me.

Punchy drives me to drink... so it's a bad feedback loop.

And giving it a 10 is problematic to me. This is how the bitching starts.

You're right, the bitching does start when you post. Hmm. :?

But I'll change it.

No, I was joking with Emma because she called the art "consistently problematic". :roll:

You fail at reading comprehension again.

You could read my copy of Steve Rogers. And you could give Amy your copy of Billy the Kid tonight so I could borrow it and review it. :P

Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities and the Ghastly Fiend of London #1

Even having read all of the Goon trades, I was somehow unaware of the previous Billy the Kid series until it came up last week as a potential Review Group pick. As a result I went into this comic not really knowing what to expect with the exception of Eric Powell's quirky sense of humor.

Initially I felt like I was playing catch up. I didn't know the characters or any of the setup, but eventually somewhere in the Elephant Man scene I just went with it and had a very fun reading experience as a result. It doesn't really matter how the characters got together it just matters that they are together and who doesn't love a good Jack the Ripper story? I found Billy just the right amount of asshole to still be endearing and I thoroughly enjoyed the old timey quirkiness of the oddities.

I've liked Kyle Hotz going all the way back to his Evil Ernie days, but I have to say this is the best his stuff has ever looked. Solid storytelling and wonderful character design.

The Goon backup was pure delight and had me laughing out loud with virtually every panel.

Story: 7
Art: 10
Backup: 10
Overall: 9

LOL - it would help if she actually showed up for our "date" :p.

I think we're rescheduling GNO for another night this week -- if so I'll bring it along for you.
