I don't think we've ever had a spin off thread reviewing the same book before.

I dunno, the rule isn't clear on spin-off threads, what if Hawk takes it all the way to the Supreme Court?

I think we should start a spin-off thread for this book just because Sgt. Marvel sullied this one with his presence.

Really, what's the point of having an Admin Tyrant if they don't keep the riff raff out? :|

We don't have thread kick anymore (if we ever did). And he posted a review. Until he stops, my hands are tied. :smt102

This wasn't terrible!

The art was really good in all three stories, and I thought each story worked alright.Well except for Kevin Maguire's Tanga section. I mean, she's flying around lamenting the lack of life around her, but then she keeps talking to herself about running into Lobo and the Green Lanterns. She was just annoying. The art was pretty at least.

The Lobo chapter by Van Hook and Ordway was solid. I've been a fan of Ordway as a kid, so I always enjoy his work. Van Hook did a good job with the story. It was clear he wanted to introduce him to new readers, as the story didn't have any real tension if you knew about Lobo in general. I did like the twist at the end.


Lopresti's writing on the Garbage Man section was better than I thought, but I'd rather be reading about Swamp Thing. It was a decent intro with pretty art. I guess I could say that about the book in general.

Just some immature people continuing unsurprisingly to be immature. They find pleasure in "trolling" in the review group rather than I don't know.. reviewing books.

What about trolling by reviewing books out of spite?

I think we're okay with that, honestly. It seems to have caused an upswell in the membership around here.
