Websites That Got Free Review Copies Really Loooooooved Uncanny Avengers #1 and Red She-Hulk #58

The highly "critically" acclaimed Uncanny Avengers #1 and Red She Hulk #58 both sold out and are going back to press for second printings!

Source: Press Release

Marvel sent out a press release announcing that Uncanny Avengers #1 and Red She Hulk #58 have sold out and are going back to press for second issues, complete with variant covers. Along with this news, Marvel also wanted to make sure fans were aware of the "critical" praise being heaped upon these comics. I mean, these "critics" REALLY loved those books, I tell you.

Now, we're not saying there's any correlation, but before you read all of the praise for Uncanny Avengers and Red She Hulk in the press release, the Outhouse would like you to just make you aware of this list of websites that probably received free review copies of both of these comics:

  • Newsarama
  • ComicBookResources
  • IGN
  • iFanboy
  • ComicsAlliance

Here is a list of websites that we know for a fact did NOT receive free review copies:

  • The Outhouse

Here are some snippets of what The Outhouse had to say about Uncanny Avengers #1:

The dialogue is generic and uninspired as are the new villains introduced in the issue. For instance, the goat-headed girl seen on the cover of Uncanny Avengers #2 is named the Goat Head Girl.

Characterization also seems to be a secondary concern in Uncanny Avengers. Scarlet Witch comes off as unrepentant for her past actions against mutants, while Rogue seems to have devolved to her 1980’s emo personality.

Cap’s dialogue during one battle scene is especially cringe-worthy, with Captain America acting more like a nervous superhero on entering his first battle than the leader of the Avengers who has experienced and stopped countless worldwide disasters.

Uncanny Avengers #1 is not a good comic book. It's a below-average superhero comic falling far short of Remender's past work that will appeal to fans of Avengers vs. X-Men but little else. 

Here is what The Outhouse had to say about Red She Hulk #58:

Nothing, because nobody who didn't receive a free review copy read this.

Just sayin'. Not drawing any conclusions.

Here's the press release:

Marvel NOW! Sell-Outs! – Uncanny Avengers & Red-She Hulk Head Back To Press

Marvel is pleased to announce that both Uncanny Avengers #1 and Red She-Hulk #58 have sold out at Diamond and will return with Uncanny Avengers #1 Second Printing Variant & Red She-Hulk #58 Second Printing Variant!

In Uncanny Avengers #1 Second Printing Variant, from the blockbuster team of Rick Remender & John Cassaday, the Avengers and X-Men must join forces to overcome the greatest challenge either team has ever faced. Can Captain America’s newly assembled team find a way to peacefully co-exist while also dealing with the game-changing repercussions of Avengers VS X-Men?

Fans and critics agree, Uncanny Avengers #1 is a hit!

“ I'm hooked and I want more "Uncanny Avengers." Now.” – Doug Zawisza,

“…we’re in for something special.” – Ron Richards,

“Remender ends the book on a cliffhanger that’s both shocking and ingenious” – David Pepose,

“Uncanny Avengers doesn’t waste any time getting to the good stuff” – Chris Sims,

Then in Red She-Hulk #58 Second Printing Variant, from the red-hot creative team of Jeff Parker, Carlo Pagulayan & Wellinton Alves, Earth’s strongest female is set on a path of destruction! When General Fortean returns, trying to build bigger and better super-soldiers, Betty Ross must do everything in her power to stop him. But who in the Marvel Universe will be strong enough to stop her from destroying everything?!

“Red She-Hulk shows no signs of disappointing fans.” – Joey Esposito,

“Pagulayan draws a powerfully impressive Red She-Hulk” – Kelly Thompson,

“Red She-Hulk is definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of strong, smart women — red and green alike —going all out and busting heads across the comic page.” - Matthew Santori-Griffith,

As part of Marvel NOW!, both Uncanny Avengers & Red She Hulk join a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike! So be sure to grab Uncanny Avengers #1 Second Printing Variant and Red She-Hulk #58 Second Printing Variant hitting comic shops this November!

*Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on these, and other Marvel NOW! titles, as they continue to garner much critical acclaim and lead to additional sell outs.
