Three words describe this waste of a comic. Fuck. This. Shit. This book was so bad that MCS wouldn't take it back a day after it had been released. This is a company that bought back Amazons Attack, so you know how terrible this book was.

Nope.

I'm tempted to make a Weird Worlds Rule that states if a comic hits a new low score, the user who picked it gets left out a rotation.

Not sure if that would be a good idea. Is it at least averaging a 3?

2.65 right now. It's the lowest score by over a point.

A seven or higher would put this above a three.

Weird Worlds #1

Seriously, what the hell is this?! The only thing that has been more disappointing is Outsiders. I'm not going to seperate these stories and explain why I thought they were all weak (with Lobo's really being the most boring); nope, not going to do it. You see whatever I say about one can be pretty much said about all of them.

The stories are mundane at best. There is nothing here to want me to buy the next issue. Even the art, which is enjoyable to me, can't save this book from the tragedy of mediocre storytelling and its worst. There's a lot that can be done with the weird worlds franchise, and a lot of characters just itching to have their own moment in the sun (hello Starfire!), but even I wouldn't want to see one of my favorites placed in a doomed series like this one.

Story: 1
Art: 7
My Score: 3
