What Outhousers are saying about Comics 6

Written by Jeremy Shane on Tuesday, November 08 2011 and posted in Features

What readers are saying about comics that hit the stands on 11/2/11.  Now featuring the webcomic ""!

"Action Comics #3

"Despite doing the thing that bugs me most about a reboot, which is using it as an excuse to tell us origins we've already been told, I'm loving this book." - Geek Readers

"Some of Clark/Superman's dialogue has just sounded too stiff." - The Nacireman

"This is only the second time I've enjoyed a Grant Morrison book this much." - Starlord

"After two solid comics in a row, Morrison slips into Morrison-isms and general craziness." - superginraix

"Another very strong issue for this title, I really am loving this new take on Superman." - Punchy

"I'm finding that reading Action and Superman helps both more then not. Clark's character is more filled out with both." - Cat-Scratch

"This issue made me pretty mad about the 3.99 price tag considering that back matter was some bull shit that they've already posted online." - mrorangesoda

"Another enjoyable issue !" - IVcnUB4

Uncanny X-Men #1

"I really enjoyed this book." - GeekReaders

"Great read, better than Wolverine & The X-Men." - MistaT

"Title should be: Cyclops and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants." - alaska1125

"Meh. It was okay but nearly as good as Wolverine and The X-men." - avengingtitan

"I'm torn with this book." - The President

"Say what you want about Schism, but I'm back to picking up at least two X-Men books" - alaska1125

"After last week's tour-de-force debut of Wolverine & The X-Men, Cyclops' side had a lot to live up to, and thankfully it didn't disappoint." - Punchy

"Wolverine & The X-Men was better." - Holland Oats

"it was great that Gillen chose to recognize that Scott's Extinction Team was created, in part, to protect Logan's school." - BlueStreak

Moon Knight #7

"One of the things I like about this book is how Bendis is really embracing the idea that he is writing for a C-List character." - Punchy

"I disagree with this one, Johns doing this with Aquaman was one of big reasons why I didn't like the first issue of that series." - Stephen Day

"Not to turn this into a "versus" thread, but how was Moon Knight able to beat up Count Nefaria, who last I heard was powerful enough to fight entire teams of Avengers by himself?" - MikeinLA

Fear Itself #7.1

"Fraction was being a little too glib in interviews about how he finally got to have 'the Red Skull kill Captain America' for it to be true." - Punchy

"I enjoyed Fear Itself, but it seems to have no ramifications and looks like it will end up being a self-contained event." - ThePresident

"Which is frankly the one thing I like about FI" - chap22

"What annoys me is this: I have both Captain America and Captain America & Bucky on my pull...  this is an issue of Captain America that I won't be getting because it has a different title." - nietoperz

"This was really good. Loved the art." - Holland Oats

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
