Yep, that ain't me. I think I remember a post by him when I first logged on here griping about my name.

No worries.

I would love Jessica Alba too much though, she would be ruined for performing the act with other men in the future.

Or so disappointed that she'd never do another man.

Wednesday Comics #1

This has tickeled me in ways that I haven't been tickeled since the original Crisis, low those many years ago. Why? Because it is new, different, and extremely well executed.

Not thrilled with the price tag, but hey, beggers can't be choosers. Every story had a pretty solid opening, with the exception of Wonder Woman. I just didn't get it at all.

Here's my play by play and then I'll give you my final score.

Batman – A- (my third favorite of the issue)
Kamandi – B
Superman – A
Deadman – B+
Green Lantern – A- (LOVED the art on this one!)
Metamorpho – A
Teen Titans – B
Adam Strange – B-
Supergirl – A+ (My favorite. Art and story blended perfectly)
Metal Men – A (second favorite, and I'm not even a Metal Men fan)
Wonder Woman – C- (Didn't get it, didn't like it)
Sgt Rock – B-
Flash - A
Demon & Catwoman – A
Hawkman – A

Lot of A's in this issue for me. More enjoyment and actual fun in a book than I've had for a long time.

My Score: 9.50

having flipped through it and read through the first couple of stories I already hate this comic. I don't even want to read the wonder woman comic. The only one I read that I would be remotely curious as to what happens next is superman so far. Fucking DC.

Mostly good, but I do have some reservations.

I'm trying to balance my admiration for the format and experimentation with what some of the stories lacked.
