BUT, thanks to Amlah6 we can review something possibly interesting (in a bad way) AND one of his personal favorites, I am sure.
ALSO, I've been repressing a homicidal rage all day long and maybe this book will be the breaking point.
BECAUSE the comic shop guy made fun of me for buying it, ending with "So, do you want me to draw a picture on that or something?" in a snide voice, because I bought the blank cover. I told him it was the least ugly of all the choices.
Who are you (or anyone else, this is a general you) to decide what is 'really interesting'? To some people, Image United is an interesting choice, I've mentioned how this is such an art-driven book, compared to the regular stuff. We all have different views on what constitutes a good pick, and that's what makes the RG a good thing. It would get dull if you were just reviewing things you liked every week. It's good to expose yourself to something you would not have bought have otherwise, and maybe surprise yourself. Or maybe you'll hate it as much as you thought you would, and then it's fun to vent.
There's nothing stopping anyone from reviewing Powers #1 for the front page of the site and of course, you could just not review Image United.
