Plus, it's next to impossible to find this issue for a reasonable price. Trust me, I looked.

The ruling stands.

a 10 page story is not enough reason to choose 32 pages of reprinted material :smt011 :smt102

You're allowed to shout principles and not review it next week. Sure, you'd be no better than Punchy, but you're still allowed to do it. :P

Fuck that, I'll participate in conversation and maybe even do a new review but I just find it dumb that we are reviewing a reprint.

I'm not going to be the cunt repeatedly saying i'm not reviewing the book which creates like 10 pages of drama. I'll find my old copies and review. 8)

No need for name calling, even if it's only implicitly aimed at a poster (he said, putting on his admin pants on)

Other than that, excellent!

That wasn't an intentional name call, I was just stating I wasn't going to be the cunt saying "I'm not doing this" repeatedly which just leads to stupid drama for pages on end.

I'd own up to it if I was calling punch that, which I really wasn't. :drunk

Fair enough. We've had problems with people calling Punch that and it's been cracked down on the past.

He means is as in a term of affection amongst fellow soccer hooligans. Like a friendly head-butt.

Fair enough. I occasionally call my kitten Dumbass McFucknuts as a term of affection. Usually when he's attacking me.

Reading Luxuria today has transformed me into a genuine Casanova fanboy. I have spent actual money to have next week's comic delivered to my mailbox.

Except the first 7 issues are total gibberish so there is a reason I didn't order the second trade. Really this like reviewing a marvel anniversary issue where there is an extended story and some "important" reprints...except this has extended reprints and some new story...

Well that was a strange piece of shit comic, The Lobo story was the highlight and a pretty low one at that. The Maguire story looked pretty but I couldn't be bothered to read it or the toxic avenger it all just read sloppy.

Weird Worlds #1

The 3 stories in this anthology fall into one or more of these categories: garbage, waste of paper, insultingly bland rip-off of one of their own better characters. Actually, all 3 manage to hit at least two of those.

So I won't waste any time except to say that there are some great sci-fi/speculative fiction comics being made basically everywhere except here in the United States and distributed by--most notably--the 2000AD and Soleil imprints as well as many others, and I urge readers to check them out if they get the chance. This book, a half-hearted but probably legally-required turd of a comic, is a step backwards even for DC as well as their Wednesday Comics experiment showed what people like Paul Pope and others can do when given a little room in an anthology format.

Shame should be heaped on everyone involved here.
