Avengers: X-Sanction #3 (Everything I do... Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Feb 04, 2012 12:16 pm

This review will follow the same pattern as previous ones, yes the story was pretty stupid but it was a lot of fun and Ed McGuinness drew the hell out of it, the man could make any script look good. I wonder why it is that Cable thinks Rulk is Glenn Talbot? Could that be a hint to the future? Or has he not read all of Loeb’s run on Hulk yet? It was cool to see Blaquesmith in a fight, he was hopping around like Yoda in Attack Of The Clones, pretty damn cool. I also liked seeing Cyclops and Hope show up and demonstrate just how messed up the Summers family tree is. Three generations of weird in that room. And then Wolverine and Spider-Man showed up! Awesome! Next issue should be a brawl and a half. Any ideas why Spidey is wearing his black costume on the cover of #4? Just because it looks cool?

This series has been absolutely horrific so far. That being said, this issue was an improvement over the previous two. As it lays the groundwork for Avengers vs. Xmen, I'm kind of becoming interested in that event. The stuff in Avengers mansion was pretty cool, and I hope it all get explained.

I'm gonna guess the reason Spidey is wearing the Black Costume is because Wolverine is wearing the X-Force costume.. and the two costumes look good together

asking a lot of questions and describing the issue in 2 or 3 sentences full of exclamations points is not a review. It's not.

What I, Royal or even Star does when he does reviews is a review.

A half assed paragraph is not. :smt102

I write those reviews too. This is just a capsule review.

And FYI, you are being a dick.

Loeb & McGuiness = Lunacy, and not in a good way (my opinion ).

And is it just me, or is this place feeling like a dysfunctional family? More so than usual?

Doom is right though. Reading these is like hearing someone talk to themselves. There's no informative value to these. If you want to have a discussion thread, then label them as such. If you want to do a review, you need to actually give some information to people about that issue, recap the plot, discuss themes, etc; but just saying
"Oh wow! i really liked Cable and the art in this issue!" doesn't really cut it.

Doom and myself both have a valid point.

One other thing: everyone knows what Punchy's review threads are like by now. You don't like them? Cool: don't click on them. Simple solution, everyone's happy. By all means though, don't just come into them to tell him he sucks or that the threads are bad.

That's a bit silly. I have an opinion and i stated so without insulting anyone. These are not reviews, end of story, and simply stating that doesn't merit finger waggling from anyone.

If i can't address punchy directly, how should i address concerns with site content?
