I enjoy talking about the comics and a good debate but acting like children and burying everyone's reviews under the idiotic drama is not cool.

I'm looking forward to reading this tomorrow, but i'm tired of this constant bullshit spamming the group for pages.

It's more a problem with punchy then you man, it's just you keep adding fuel to the fire and I'm tired of reading through all that bullshit just to find the reviews,

Holy balls, no one is allowed to quit gawds dammit! :x :x :x

Now I'm all for a bit of sniping, but it seems like there's a lot of butthurt going around and I don't mean the good buttseks kind of butthurt.

Peace, love and understanding you cunts. We could all do well to step back and maybe respect each other's opinions a bit more and not put so much effort into tearing each other down. Diversity of opinion is a good thing and the Review Group would be boring without it.

Now let's get back to our sweet, sweet love of comics which is the whole point.

I'm going to come right out and say it:

Punchy needs to realize that not everyone is going to agree with him on everything and he can't act like his is the only word that matters.

A lot of the argument that I read came off that way.

Of course I dismissed it, but if you thought telling me I should stop posting and the rest of it was going to get you anything but a verbal reaming, you were mistaken.


My opinion on price not being important.

How narrow are the rules of the review group? Are you solely reviewing content or is it the entire experience of reading the comic?

If it is the former, then does that mean one can't comment on the cover art or printing quality? If it is the latter, the purchase price is certainly a contributing factor.

Not to pile up on you, Punchy, but it seems like you have a narrow definition of reviewing a comic. Unless that is the established definition, you're nitpicking other people's opinions.

There's no established rules, if you wanted to you could review based solely on lettering, or just on printing. This is just my personal opinion here.

This argument isn't really about that anymore for me, it's about the general priggishness and sense of superiority HoJ (and probably me too) has demonstrated.

It's hard to see how an argument could be won on the internet where there's no ultimate arbiter to judge who won, anyway. Most people believe they won an argument, regardless of how wrong they were, it doesn't make it so.

This 'argument' consists mostly personal attacks, in any case.

There's am argument?

I thought Punchy and HOJ were making out.

Hey, you raped me IRL, that isn't like virtual rape!

Of course I am all beside myself, you told me you loved me and then defiled me like an underage brit.

I was lied to, this is clearly not a review, can I have my $5 dollars back?
You know what? Fuck this noise. I'm not going to post in this thread until my review, and you can all see how enjoyable it is when pessimism is given free reign to suck all the joy away.

Please.

I am having fun. Shit maybe I should leave the review group...

Countdown to McKegan asking if I am going to respond to every post initiated.

Punchy wrote:You dismissed my opinion before I even said anything.

Just because so called 'professional' reviewers take it into account doesn't mean it's good or correct. I personally don't hold much stock in many comics reviews, many are just glorified spoiler rundowns or attempts to be funny while disparaging something or sometimes thoughtless suckjobs of a particular creator. The critical comics community is mostly bullshit, and I think it's things like focusing on pricepoint which have led to this situation.

I'm not saying I'm better, I just try to be.

Alright, now I've been offended. I mean if you were calling names like Tabu or the Best Shots crew that would be one thing, but no, you just lumped me in with that bunch too.

I'm buying a plane ticket right now bitch!
