Surprise 3/10 Review From Newsarama Reminds Fans That

Apparently issue #6 came out this week. Who knew?

So, yeah, Marvel's SummerFallWinter event of 2016, Civil War II, is still happening.

I know! I was caught off guard as well. According to Newsarama's Yelp review of issue #6 not only does the comic actually exists but also, shockingly enough, spent too much time talking and not enough time doing anything. Almost as if the king of decompression and the man who had Steve Rogers crying in a basement for the first third of Age of Ultron, Brian Michael Bendis, was stretching out a story.

One would think that after being delayed at least two times that Marvel would publish a comic that was worth the wait. Instead, well, let's just let David Pepose, Newsarama's Best Shots Team Lead, tell us what he thinks: this point, Civil War II has largely been about circling a conflict rather than diving into it head-on, leaving this event book about as unsatisfying as it gets.


'Rama Rating: 3 out of 10

"It's like when your favorite team calls a time out to regroup before the play clock winds down and they still throw a fucking interception!" continued Pepose, during a Skype chat that may or may not have actually happened.

There you have it; Civil War II #6 by Brian Michael Bendis & David Marquez and Justin Ponsor, came out this week and it took until Friday for me to notice any articles about it.

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
