And I was about to post a review, but this thread is beyond dumb.



That came from someone misunderstanding one of posts. When I said GHERU's people, I actually meant Jews. It's now spiraled out of control. :lol:

Hilariously, the book in question is stupider and more offensive than this thread. I changed my mind. Review o'clock.

Nemesis #3

"What if Batman was a cunt?"

Apparently the answer is that everyone else's IQ would drop around fifty points. Millar's protagonisteponymous villain* is an evil everyman in a world of thundering morons who loves doing bad things because he's a bad person. We're given no reason to pick a side and watch the carnage play out either, so with no-one to root for it's hard to look at the book without almost complete detachment.

The problem here is that the character is flat and unconvincing and his shenanigans are shocking in a way that lacks depth or wit. When reading an issue of some other books accused of 'shock value' we at least get something to go with it. Societal cause in Stray Bullets, black wit and brotherhood in Preacher and Young Liars stretched the boundaries of what can be considered logic. Nemesis just has career middle work from McNiven. Bad art can ruin good writing, but when an otherwise reliable artist churns out something this choppy and weak you can only assume Millar promised him a healthy sized movie cheque.

A very thin comic lacking in depth, subtlety, wit or charm. If I was thirteen I'd have thought this was cool. For about ten minutes.

0

*Edited to compensate for Millar's inability to make it clear who the main character of a book is.

Also the Nazis main problem with the Jews was a racial and genetic one, rather than a religious one. In case anyone involved in that quagmire wanted to mention that.

You can't compare a message-board clique to a nationality or a religion or race like you are doing, it's ridiculous.

This is like the Cosplay thread again, a ridiculous overreaction.


...and he does it again.

Have you lost your mind or something punch? Just reading the last few review group threads with you, you're basically killing this group with all this bullshit.

Millar has said the Protagonist is Detective Morrow, not Nemesis, he expressed surprise that some people saw Nemesis as the character you're supposed to be following.

Dude! That wasn't supposed to come out until the last page of issue three. That way I never have to explain why it makes no sense and is retarded.

I would think you would take Punchy's side against your mutual enemy Skywatcher.

I don't dislike you dude, I just find it much harder to like you at times like this when you get all stubborn and defensive. I also hate most stuff you like. :D
