I read everyone's reviews except one.

Flynn, I hadn't read the Blackest Night issue in question (still haven't, probably never going to) but from what I understand Selina's sister thinks she's possessed by a cat demon. I don't think I'm missing much. Except I dunno who the angel guy is but I assume that'll be resolved in the next issue.

I think we have a new mystery to replace the Spidertour Ignore list.

Yeah, I've kind of gleaned that. But based on the solicit, there was no mention of Maggie Kyle being in it. I guess that's why I was so irked by it - there was no head's up that, in order to have a better understanding of what is going on in this issue, one should have read or at least been familiar with another issue.

Oh the bait-and-switch solicit thing is just ridiculous, and the book should be 100% returnable to DC. Like I maybe said earlier, I'd rather have skip months than filler if the filler's like this.

Punchy, you'll have to repeat that. I have you on ignore :wink:

And 2 Batman books in a row is lame-sauce! I hate Batman!


You sir need your brain checked right now! (No offense)

And as for next week's pick, I don't know how excited I am. We'll see once we get there. Still, a good pick.

You don't get to bitch until he's e-mailed you at least 30 consecutive days.

What'd you say bad about DC to get his panties in a bunch now?

‘More reviewing my horribly mediocre(except this was crossed through) very interesting book’
Much better.


Either way I don't like getting e-mails from creepy fucks.

they are. Marvel is the only publisher that disregards any kind of fair play in solicits. That is why there was a HUGE retailer outcry about Fallen Sun

I read you review. Except for some reason, I completely missed that line. :oops:

Anyhow, I guess I will review this. I'm just waiting for it show up in the mail because I have a subscription.

I barely read their solicits. Some of them are so absurd that it's pointless.

Marvel solicits kind of suck. Like the issue of New Avengers before the finale...where exactly did Mockingbird quit? :lol:

I can't review this week guys, it sounds very mediocre, and I'm not ordering comics for a few weeks. Nothing against Guitarsmashley.

I had trouble reading this. It's not my kind of book, and I don't care about the characters at all.

The art is not as bad as most of you say. It's competent and, in some places, rather good. But it is not consistent. The book starts off strong. The first splash page is detailed and dynamic, but halfway through, the backgrounds seem to disappear and the characters end up inhabiting a lot of empty space. The worst pages are the ones with the blood splatter panels. It's as though the artist was running out of time and decided ink sprays over a face would suffice as storytelling.

STORY: 3
ART: 6.5

OVERALL: 4.75
