I'll still go through and pull the reviews, I just won't have to read the stuff about Punchy not being able to comprehend the definition of incest.

Jeses Punchy, just STFU already.

When EVERYONE is telling you that you are wrong, there's a good possibility that you are wrong.

There can't possibly be any serious butthurt over this thread.

We all know Punchy won't budge.

Agree or disagree?

Nemesis #3

Of the three issues of Nemesis so far, this was the least sucky but only because Millar is going out of his way to try and shock the reader and that's all Millar's got anymore. Shock. Reading Nemesis it's clear Millar's only reason for doing this is to try and spin it into another Kick Ass. This reads like slightly more elaborate storyboards and it makes for very uninspired comic booking. There's no depth in the characters and I kind of doubt this is anyone's first comic where the villain is the main focus of the series.

I hope Steve McNiven hasn't had a falling out with Dexter Vines and Morry Hollowell because his work becomes a lot less exciting without them. Certainly they couldn't have helped the boring widescreen storytelling but they would have added the depth and texture that Nemesis is lacking.

Having not read this before it got picked for the RG, I would have bought the eventual trade sight unseen. The biggest shock Millar and McNiven have provided with Nemesis is just how underwhelming a comic these two have come up with.

Story: 1
Art: 6
Overall: 3.5

So is Nemesis shocking or not? Some reviews say it is, and some are saying it's trying to be shocking and failing, which is closest to the truth?

I never said it wasn't an insult, just that it wasn't a personal one or a serious one deserving of being reported.

would like to sincerely apologize to Punchy.
I took a bad mood (woken up against my will to a broken coffee maker where the person responsibly did not see why I thought that maybe they should have gone out to get some :smt013 ) with me online only to see myself called an idiot in a thread that I had not, yet, posted in by a person who is not a friend of mine and therefore I did not consider it friendly ribbing.

but, no matter, all that can be seen as an excuse and I am not trying to make excuses - I should not have reported it, I should have just ignored it. I am sorry
----
would also like to sincerely apologize to the Review Group
after a couple of weeks where, for the most part, this thread was actually about the comic book being reviewed my bad mood caused way too much drama and took away from what the thread should be about.

I am sorry
----
now, I assume, based on who has posted in here since I hit the button (I admit to not having read all the pages) that I have been insulted again and to any one this may apply to: If you have been reported for personally attacking me, I take the blame for that as well, since if it wasn't for me hitting he button to being with you never would have been inspired to do so.
if my assumption is true, I am sorry
if it is false, I am sorry for thinking so poorly of my fellow OH posters to make this assumption.

Sincerely, RU
