All that other stuff is plainly inferior, yes.


Except it didn't, it was Ellis trying to be hyper-mainstream really.

at what point should we start to think twig is involved in the sex slave trade or in a box rotting under punch's bed? Which I guess is the same thing.

He's not under my bed, his Facebook indicates he was somewhere called 'Seajay's Disco' only 6 hours ago.

For his sake, I hope "disco" means something totally different over there, like "biscuit".

Secret Avengers #13

I won't say I was excited for this, but I will say I was expecting much more.

The book focuses on Hank "Beast" McCoy who tries to talk his dear friend Lonny out of chilling on the House floor while a freaking enemy army invades DC. We are supposed to care about Lonny because he marched beside MLK Jr., fights for the rights of coal miners and supposedly stopped congress from passing anti-mutant laws or something. At first Lonny makes up some excuse about passing a bill as the reason for why he refuses to leave, then he says it is because he wants people to see everything going as normal in the midst of a crisis, and finally it ends with him reciting Lincoln's gettysburg address from memory while he is killed in an attack by sixty year old robots.

This book is totally pointless. It adds nothing to any of the characters in the story, it isn't the least bit compelling, it is preachy, and it asks you to care about a protagonist you just met as he is killed in one of the most asinine ways as possible. The cast lacks any of the personality you're accustomed to and at least four members of the team are completely absent from the book totally. Worst of all the efforst put into making you like this Lonny character are so over the top preachy you may just want to throw up.

The only redeemable part of this book was the art, I've always enjoyed Eaton's work. He isn't my favorite but it wasn't terrible like the rest of this monstrous waste of time.

story-0
art 7

overall 0, this may be the worst comic book of 2011. At least I got to read Lorna for free.

Cover's mislabled, should be SHIELD volume 2 #1.

In other news AMS is almost spot on with his Secret Avengers review. I liked the art a lot less though.
