While I think you're exaggerating the number of people this run made sense to, slamming Puhnyc is odd as even you have posted earlier in this thread where you admit that even you realized stuff during a reread...
I read the majority of run (minus a few issues here or there like the Millar junk) but even things like your explanation for Galactus's ten minute death for instance just means falls flat on me. Not so much because I don't understand your answer (which I don't) but because the run was mostly just plain old boring and I don't care. Galactus's death and return faster than you can order a pizza was, to me, just a gimmick to make some readers say "kewl".
You love the run Hab and I'm seriously not trying to take that away from you. But just because you or Chris love it doesn't mean people that don't are stupid or "cuntrags".
Now as to how Pnucyh liked that Avengers dribble is another matter. I tellz ya, the guy is bonkers.
I never called anyone stupid or a Newton.

That is not at all the same thing as saying it doesn't make sense, they are two completely different things.
I'm taking Punchy to task because his review will be published on the front page of the site, and I don't think he's ever given Hickman a fair shake, and I'm not the only one.
I get that you didn't like it, but, at the same time I feel you're at least fair in your criticism, which is why I haven't really rebutted it. I do feel, however, that this will be remembered as one of the strongest runs on the comic since it's inception
