Old Man, you killed the thread.

Everyone googled yaio and are now too busy fapping, imo


But some were obviously fapping while they were posting.

I'll finish this and say why it isn't for me later.

I think the main thing is the total lack of suspense.

Walt Disney Comics #701

I ended up reading this twice. Second time I had to really adjust my thinking to remember that time in my very young life when these were the comics that I loved. I kind of got there, but it was a struggle.

Still, it was cute. Can't wait to give it to my 7 year old son to read. I'm interested to see what he thinks. I can't be fair to this book by looking at it through the eyes of a 43 year old man, so I'm rating this one by using that inner child that still lurks in all of us.

Story: 7
Art: 9
My Score: 7.75

I would love some ideas. I really dig Bayou, Sin Titulo, Freakangels, and Wondermark. Hate Achewood. I would like to do something I am unfamiliar with.

Really, dude, do you really want me to review it? And before you say yes, remember my words about Riley when I reviewed issue one of Proof. :wink:

I was trying to take the heat off of Punchy this week, but then Twigg had to get all stupid, so there went that idea.

just go to www.sintitulocomic.com (Eli Katz, if you are not reading this one, you need to check it out) but there is zuda.com as well. There is also the category by the favorites committee? so they should be of some assistance.

I'm going to review this book:

From the time I started reading the previously page, I knew this comic wasn't for me. Something about an ultra team getting rid of the ultrapods. Ultra this, Ultra that. I hate repetitive dialogue in comics, and this was a chore to get through. I originally stopped when the evil guy was like

"This is why you can't rely on criminals.

*a panel of him standing there

"Except me of course" The dialogue is just cringeworthy, and obviously aimed at kids. nothing wrong with that if you are a kid, but it's a chore to get through at this age. I see other people are mentioning the fact that they changed the review if they were a kid. I'm not to be doing that, I don't think it's fair on other books I havn't changed my aspect of reading for.

The cloverleaf fight sold it for me, it was just a bunch of random events which I guess would have been funnier if I was a kid. The art was sound enough though

2/10.

so here is the review to go with the score I posted earlier:
First off, let it be noted that the art team here does an extraordinary job. European comics are often noted for their art, but to have classic American characters recreated with such skill and still be instantly familiar feeling is a treat. Dalena and Gula should be commended for the feat. Chunky style is not void of fine line work and the colors are dynamic. It is stunning to see a kids' book that looks this accomplished. Maybe Marvel’s Oz series isn’t the pinnacle of all ages artwork.



The story is your normal superhero fare. There is a super team, the Disney Ultraheroes, facing off with a team of villains, the Sinister 7. There is a new member trying to prove himself and secret identities are a big concern. This issue even lets the classic comic trope of having superhero action be big news for media outlets creep into the panels.

If the writers did not inject the Disney stable of characters from Mickey to Peg-Leg Pete to Uncle Scrooge into the script there would be nothing to talk about here. That they do more than just interject the Disney faces into costumes shows the enduring love for Walt’s cartoons. The voices are pitch perfect and the humor right in line with the modus operandi of the mother company’s output - be it classic Goofy shorts or Darkwing Duck. It just feels right and that is a big thing.
