I'm afraid I'm going to be out for next week, this week was a pleasurable exception where I had extra money to buy a review book that I wasn't going to be getting anyway, but next week goes back to the usual tight comic book budget. I wasn't going to be getting Ultimate Comics Thor, and I'm just not going to have the extra money to buy it.

Hopefully I can get involved the week after. :)

It's okay, no one is expected to review every week. :wink:

I won't be reviewing Ultimate Comics Thor, because I am still protesting the ignored one.

If I didn't ignore him, I would probably leave the group. I haven't decided whether I will behave next week and stay away or cause havoc. :twisted:

It's Hickman and Pacheco. I don't think it'll hurt to give (what looks to be) a good comic some love.

Franken-Castle #21

Putting aside the fact that the whole Franken-Castle concept is buckets of stupid, I enjoyed the Monster Island portion of this in spite of myself. Having Elsa Bloodstone helped some, but not nearly as much as Dan Brereton. Holy Man-Thing the first half of this book is pretty. I had to read it twice to really figure out what the what since I had only read the first issue of this arc previously, but it was damn pretty.

The second half of this comic on the other hand, not pretty at all and I'm not even talking about the art. Remender's ghetto-speak was hard to get through and it was about the most wrote Punisher scene possible. Where Brereton succeeded in taking Remender's lackluster scripting and making it into something fun, Mutti isn't up to the task. Mutti's portion of the book is horribly muddied and takes Frank Castle to previously unseen levels of fugly.

Story: 3
Brereton Art: 10
Mutti Art: 1
Overall: 5

Hack dialogue, IMO. I thought the rest of Elsa's stuff was fun, but her paraphrasing a 1988 US VP debate one-liner was :roll: x 1000.
