New Avengers, Wolverine and USM. This week. All spoiled. USM I kinda care about the other two not so much. And you should be positive about the books you like but honestly you seem to buy and enjoy a lot of what seem like very mediocre comics so I tend to take your enthusiasm with a pinch of salt.


If I like them they aren't mediocre :P

There was that thing where all those people swore to make good comics threads regularly and put their names in purple, that lasted like a week.

Punchy used to start a lot of the individual threads. Now he just throws out a bunch of spoilers in that thread and individual threads never get started.


I stopped because nobody posted in them and they dropped off the front page quicker than Barry Allen.

First this book stars aquaman. A character which has always had a special place in the hearts of comic book fans. A character so enigmatic, so intriguing, so fliacid even the staunchest of haters can appreciate him. Who hasn't walked around their house and though "Gee I wish I could talk to fish, they could do my chores for me and junk" Of course Aquaman doesn't use his gifts for such trivial things, he used it to ignite our atmospheres with awesomeness and I am left totally ignited.

Secondly I don't know who did that art, but it was like flipping through a photoalbum instead of a comic book, it was that impressive. When A-dawg (my ultra hip nickname for aquaman) talk that nasty shark a lesson I thought I had just watched a deleted scenes from Jaws or something, instead this time this shark was killed by an a veritable calvalcade of awesomeness rather than a cheaply made bomb.

Again let me reiterate this book is a massive success. It will change your life, it will make women weep in pleasure, it will make men cower in shame of their lack of awesomeness and it will unite this group if you let it.

I now support Aquaman for president of the United states after this.

That was back when Hawk was hammering the forum with Previews. Now all you have to compete with are the press releases.

Which seriously, all the sunshine pumping press releases that get posted here are fucking dumb and I hate them.

I think someone should be dedicated to doing it, not saying it is you. Maybe Loltron should automatically do it.

I know what Punchy's saying, you would post about something you really like, take a little time to write it, and not a single person would respond. Or almost no one would read it. I let Royal do all that shit now.

Maybe our next step should be to have a PressReleaseTron?

I was actually a little proud of the Outhouse today with the Teen Titans release.

Compared to some other comment threads and boards, we had very nuanced and informed opinions.

OK, so I just posted a separate thread for all the books I read this week (apart from Mystery Men, which already has the interview thread, and this book, and for Supreme Power, which I'm front-paging), let's see how well they do.
