All comics are pointless, a distraction. To try and say one story matters more than another is foolish.

You're saying it's good but it's going on too long. Yoni seems to prefer that it went on indefinitely, so it would have some value.

And I agree with you on Deadpool.

I just think that we should respect Super's pick, rather than bash it because it's not an Indie Vampire book that is the next big thing until the next one.

he made that point after the post I was responding to your response to. You have been hanging our with Milton too long. Spinning debate is not good debate.

And no one is bashing, just expressing disappointment.

We are however bashing you and your questionable arguments.*

And you are being your usual obstinate self, so is there a point to your tirades this morning?


No. He is inferring that from the fact that the three of us aren't Dark Reign fans.

No I preferred they did their story and moved on. It's not fun it's not good. My favorite comic right now is a big 2 book very much the victim of continuity but it's a great book with a great story, great characters, a great writer and some awesome art. I can't say that for the Dark Reign books I've read.

Yoni said Dark Reign was pointless. Well what point does any comic have beyond to entertain? Dark Reign does that. To expect it to do something more is stupid.

It's like when people say the Ultimate line sucks because it doesn't matter. And the 616 does?

I have never bashed DArk Reign, until today. I did bash the hell out of some GSWOML, but never DArk Reign.

Up until Millar left UXM,and then Ultiamtes and Bendis brought in venom I thought the Ultimate U was awesome.

I don't mean that.

In general you like to consider yourself a big reader of Independent books, and like to pimp them.
