This was less a cohesive story and more a collection of moments that would only be interesting to a to some one who had never seen a Kubrick movie. Rather than being a comic about a genius villain, it is a comic about how stupid everyone else is; no, no one notice all the cars in the parking lot, o don’t worry about the military trained bad guys still at large, forget about the 100 of other things that point to the break out – no, instead lets pretend that cussing, violence, and shock equal good writing without regard to plot.

On the other hand, I love the art, to bad about the "story"

story - 1
art - 8
over all - 4.5

A group of people is not a personal attack, by it's very nature.

And surely it's an insult to be said to be more sick and twisted than Mark Millar? Are you going to report Victorian Squid?

I don't think Mark Millar will ever be insulted by anything said on this board, as he'll never read it. Regardless, I sincerely doubt he'd be insulted by his writing being called "sick and twisted".
As for others being insulted by being referred to as MORE sick and twisted than Millar, that surely depends on whether they think that author is indeed sick and twisted?

Punchy, perhaps you need to step away from the board for a time? Your reactions are peculiarly aggressive and not like you normally.

I meant an insult to the 20somethings.

And screw you, you have no right to even suggest I do anything. Get off your high horse.

On a public board, I have the "right" to suggest anything just as you can choose to ignore my suggestion. Anyway, even if I ever did care, I certainly don't now.

You don't have the right to suggest I leave the board, you're not a mod, you're no better than me, so don't act like you are.

That's open to debate! :)
I suggested you take a break as a (formerly) concerned individual, not as a moderator. Your responses just ensured that now I could care less what you do.

That's a terrible idea. You know what would make this thread better though? An appearance by Nazi Skywatcher.

If this thread was just pages of people bitching about Nemesis, it would be boring. The discussion is good BECAUSE Punchy loves and defends it. Homogeneous opinions do not make for good discussion.
