As I have no way to ascertain that you have actually been punched enough times to be called Punchy. :lol:

I am old, man. As far as I can tell, I am the oldest or second oldest person who buys comics at my LCS. And Starlord can confirm I am old.

Now get me some more reviews! ;-)

this is true. He's the oldest, most crotchety person I've ever met! You treat him right, and with the respect that all elders deserve!

(and he has a heart of gold, but don't tell him I told you that. I'll just deny that shit anyway)

I'm so old my Social Security number is 1.

I'm so old I remember the scent of dinosaur crap.

I'm so old my first home was a cave.

And I don't have a heart of gold, it's a heart of gristle, and it doesn't pump blood, it pumps formaldehyde.

It shows at normal size when you reply with a quote. Of course, having bifocals helps.

I would, but these mopes are making it sound so horrible I'm finding it hard to motivate.

Quit trying to blame your innate laziness on other people who took the time to read and not like the book.

So Doom Patrol got a nice vicious review from me, I actually suggest in the review that Metal Men become the main title and the snore fest become the back up. I will link when live and all that jazz.

As for score

Doom Patrol
Story 2
Art 6
Overall 4

Metal Men
Story 8
Art 8
Overall 8

score overall 5 (metal men can't count as much, because it is not the marquee story and is significantly shorter)

I honestly had to turn off my television to force myself to get through this thing... the commercials were more interesting... it felt like homework. I deserve a gold star dammit!

do yourself a favor, just score Doom Patrol a zero and read Metal Men and score it. Then you will have an accurate rating for the book and save yourself the time on Doom Patrol, unless you are having trouble getting to sleep, there is no reason to read the main story.

Oh by the way, Doom Patrol proves (along with 2000-2008) that Democracy sucks and should be abolished immediately.

First, though, we should vote on the abolishment of Keith Giffen.

NO, he's cool, he just has to be handcuffed to Dematteis for the rest of eternity.
