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 put out basically everywhere except here in the United States 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.

Hawk is infamous -- and universally loathed -- for picking the crappiest book of the week for us to review. Well, he certainly lives up to all the infamy and loathing this time by selecting WEIRD WORLDS #1. Seriously, when a book features the exploits of Garbageman, you know that you're reading a real -- ahem -- stinker. And Good Lord, Garbageman has the worst dialogue, pointing out the most obvious things that are clearly illustrated on the page. "Oh, I just got hit by a car." Yeah, you don't have to tell us -- we're witnesses to your forgettable, lesser-Swamp Thing misadventures.

I guess I would rate this book as "so embarrassingly bad that it's almost good, so unfunny that it's somehow mildly amusing" if it weren't for the Lobo story. This character is even less interesting than Garbageman. Or Larfleeze. Or all the other Johnny One Note characters that populate comic books.

For the love of God, Review Groupers, stop picking out crap!

Damn you, Squid. I shouldn't have wasted the last hour going to the store and Byrne stealing that book.

So you read my review and thought, I think he meant a good "1"?!

I hope you read some good books too while you were there.

Good job then, all this "I'm too busy to read a 22 page comic in 4 minutes" from you lately has been ridiculous!

It's the trip to the store, not the reading, that takes up the most time. I'm busier than usual these days, sadly, and I really shouldn't be stepping out to read Garbageman. And yet, I do.

Weird Worlds #1

Hawk is an asshole. I know he's an asshole because he not only picked Garrison #5, but he also picked this piece of crap. Lobo hasn't been interesting since he was amalgamated with Howard the Duck and only barely then.

Hawk must be stopped from picking any more shitty comics. Please sign my petition to have him removed from the group.
