Wow, what a waste of a dollar. I'm very surprised this book is scoring such high reviews from people who generally pan better books. This was one of the most derivative, unoriginal, boring things I've ever read. A hodge-podge of every stereotypical campy "cool" concept smushed together in one smug hipster package. I can't imagine that anyone would take any one of the concepts explored in this book seriously if it weren't for the fact they were presented in a way that screams "I'm too cool for this stuff, but I'm doing it anyway, which actually makes me doubly cool." Hipster logic at it's worst, like wearing a three sizes too small Judas Priest t-shirt with your france pants because Judas Priest are so corny, but since you KNOW they're corny and you're wearing the shirt anyway, you must be on the cutting edge of the hipster elite. This is Scott Pilgrim with absolutely none of the charm, a psuedo-intellectual self-aspiring douchebag's Twilight. I bet people are really proud of themselves for enjoying this. Complete and utter garbage, and invalidates the opinion of anyone who gave this above a 5 but bashes a Marvel or DC book ever again. All of this has been done before, better, and in a fashion that wasn't snobbishly ranking itself too good for the material its parodying.
The art was ok.
Review dedicated to Old Man, who was always wrong in political threads.

Just because I don't know how to spell the language of some tiny African nation doesn't mean that I'm wrong in thinking that your attitude towards women is 100% wrong. Obviously, you're some skinny, single nerd living on the East Coast who probably derives value in life from wrestling matches, hoping that Wolverine gets to sleep with teenagers and engaging in casual drug use. You're literally the worst thing to happen to comics since Stan Lee.
