interesting and I have to say you've made me want to change my score. I still liked it more than you but I have to agree with everything you said.


I thought I liked it more than I did too when I started writing the review. I thought it was at least average, but then as I wrote my thoughts, I realized it deserved a shameful score for daring to be so average at such an unoriginal concept. It has no business existing - why try to do something others have done so well in the past if you're not going to put any real effort into it. Go write a Fear Itself tie-in mini or something. :lol:

My review:

I have to say I wasn't blown away by this book like the majority were. The concept seemed good and I like the satirical take on everything but something didn't click for me. So much so that I've forced myself to read this over and over again to see if there's something I'm not getting. Nope, I just wasn't feeling it.

It just felt TOO crazy. Like it was from the perspective of a kid with ADD hopped on a mountain of coke. The art was pretty and really jumped out at me as I read it, especially in the car chase scene, despite making the tone of the book go off the rails which sort of ruined the story feel.

The overall story of the protagonist, Butcher Baker, being told to kill all his old villains who are currently incarcerated to save the taxpayers money also seemed solid...but the pacing and everything felt more like trying too hard to shock. At times in the prison part of the story I felt i was reading an adaption to an early 90's Steven Seagal movie starring a Lobo.

But when you take away the shock after shock factor, I didn't feel there was much else in this other than some nice, different art. Definitely different compared to other stuff out there...but nothing that will make me personally rush next month to get #2. Maybe I'll get the trade later.

Story: 5
Art: 8

Overall: 6

Next week will be like 52 Week Fifty-Two part deux. If bad reviews of Brightest Day can deliver half the butthurt the DC fanmen expressed that week it should be fun. :smt077

I have an easy formula to help me determine the score of this week's comics.

(Number of fully exposed breasts/2)-(8.5*Number of Penis doorknobs).

Therefore we get (29*.5)-(8.5*1)=6

6 sounds about right for a score for this week.

I'd like to see you apply that theory to episodes of Spartacus: Blood And Sand.

Alright,

So I enjoyed this book a lot. I fully understand the complaints but I would also say that past the first few pages I didn't really see a place to laugh at. It's a dark book that isn't completely serious. The art is amazing in this book which we've already covered. And while self contained I see this book going lots of places and I look forward to seeing where it goes.

8.8

Now the sad part. I wont be reading this monthly, or at least till I get back on my feet. On wednesday last week I was informed that my contract for next year has not been renewed. So in 87 days I have no job and about a week after that we'll be homeless. I am doing everything in my control to make sure neither of those things happen and am sending out about 3 job applications a day. So this was my last major box of comics coming for a while. And anything I review I will be doing as a pirate so I hope you guys can look passed it as someone who has contributed for so long. This is where I'm at in my life. I may start an actual thread sometime in the future if this start looking good or look a lot worse but for now I'm fine with it here.
