What's that about?

I mean c'mon man the review group is about people trying out new books and keeping with it. It shouldn't be about helping our your buddies or keeping the score up for each other. It's about people actually reviewing a comic. As much shit as this thread gets, at least people are having an in depth discussion about the comics at one time.

Everybody has a bias of some sort.

Starlord has forsaken the vagina, there's no need to act like one on his pick week. :P

Seriously. last week it's "my parents will think I'm gay", this week it's "I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings".

These are some pretty lame excuses people. :smt013

If one feels that even a small grain of sand hurts one's vagina, of course one cannot cope with larger challenges.

Brightest Day #23

I'm incredibly apprehensive over this review. I've grown to like Tomasi and Johns working together, I love the art and I like the characters in the book but I stopped reading the series at like 10. It was a personal choice (I kept with JL GL because it was running laps around this book writing wise)

I really want to care about Deadman but I frakking hate that white costume and turning 2 heavy hitting Justice League members into parts of Captain Planet is just stupid. People kept making that joke about the rainbow corps but nope, Geoff did it here. If they combine Hannah Barbara will sue! :lol:

I love both writers but on this book...it just doesn't work for some reason.

Sorry Brian, I tried man.

Score: 7

Is that a Punchy 7 or a regular 7? The scaling here is very important.

Ugh today has been such a crappy day.

I had my fucking wallet stolen, with £400.00 in it, and all my debit cards and ID. So now I can't go out tonight.

The train I want is delayed and I am stuck in the train station for 2 hours.

And my best friend is seriously ill.

Overall I give this day a 9.

Considering that both HB and DC are owned by sprawling conglomerate Time-Warner (paging Nacireman! :twisted:), I don't think HB will sue.

Which is probably why DC feels comfortable doing this. :P

"Captain DC's
NOT a hero!
Gonna take comic sales down to zero!"

:-D

I'm sorry your day has been such a Punchy 7, Twig. I hope it gets better. :(

Moore's last issue was #64. #87 was Rick Veitch's last issue.

He's talking about the year not the issue number.

Zero, can you change your name to "Punchy 7" as the two are synonymous?

Thank you.
