You decide, fuck nut.


Will wiping down wheelchairs prevent you from participating at least once a month?

I have too many other things going on to devote much time on Review Group decisions. Unless you tell me you're back, I have neither the time nor the energy to type your name in the list.

I go mad with evil by the slightest bit of power or authority, eventually the smitings would pile up and the RG peasants would be revolting.

More revolting than usual, that is.

I tried really hard to sum up the words for a review on this book but I can't go at my usual length.



The story felt like what it was: an intermission book filled with random character moments, some cool others meh that felt like a step down from the last 12 issues of this book. It was OK but nothing really special to get at me.

Art was pretty but the story was kinda bland. Maybe I'm burned out on prom stories from the movies and TV but it never did anything to me in real life or on TV. The closest I've come to liking one of these stories is the High School Reunion in Grosse Point Blank.

I love Christos Gage's writing and he's written a ton of stuff I'm a fan of, but this issue simply wasn't it.

Story: 6
Art: 8
Overall: 6.5

I was looking forward to this book, I liked what little I'd read of this series before, and I loved Gage's end run on the Initiative.

But this was so average and forgettable, I know the books better than this.

6 out of 10. Disappointing.

Then again I read this at the LCS so did rush through it :(
