Verily! User Reviews Doth Proclaim It So!

Lo! Whilst most on yon Midgard merely sleep through their waking days, a furious and stalwart band of reviewers doth present itself ‘pon this very website!

Templar, laden with a name like my god kin, hath his report on the mighty prowess of Red Robin #2Story 5 / Art 3

Ever since this book was announced, I expected good things from it. That’s why it’s all the more pleasing that I can say that this book is surprisingly good. I’ve liked a lot of Yost’s other work, but I didn’t know how well he would fit writing in the Bat-world… yet he’s taken any high expectations I had for this title and exceeded them.

changingshades suffers the impressive offense of yet another scurrilous missive entitled No Hero #6.  Yet, the Odinson would never compare himself to such a beast of burden as he does.  ‘Tis unseemly!  Story 2 / Art 1

Man, there is one issue left of this series, and I am having a very difficult time justifying buying the last part other than just out of a completion. I’m trying to think of what in this book was unique or even just not been done so many times that any thing that might have been cool about it has been beaten like a donkey that died on the way to market.

grifter78 has achieved that which was thought impossible! Mine eyes are surprised that Stormwatch PHD #22 is still being published!  What other treachery lay therein?  Story 4 / Art 3

We get more of a look into The High’s world and the artifacts that populate his secret base. It’s not just reminiscent of Superman, but more specifically All-Star Superman in my opinion. At least that’s the vibe I got from it. If sales would’ve supported it, this sub-plot that’s been running through this title with The High for a while now could have been its own mini-series. It has certainly kept my interest.

Bedhead, a condition well understood with such golden spun locks as mine, for why else am I rarely seen without mine winged helm, speaks of the neither cool or hot extremes of Ms. Marvel #41.  Yet I doth suspect a terrible blow has struck yon teller of tales, Brian Reed.  Story 4 / Art 3

Brian Reed often comes off as diet Bendis: slightly blunted flavor with less risk of any long-term impact; but that’s not exactly a bad thing. There are times when you don’t need a sugar rush and fall, when you don’t want the expectations that come with knowing you’ll have to pay for those calories so they better have meant something. Sometimes you just want to quench a quick thirst and move on. Unlike when I read Bendis, I’m not looking for Reed to boggle my mind with his dialogue, layouts, or plots. Instead, I just want a few minutes of super hero action before I turn to riskier, and possibly more rewarding and/or infuriating comics.

Even the gods find themselves weakened by the tireless pursuit of endless lists of comics, like some foul deceit of the trickster Loki himself.  This unending barrage of page tests Asgard from lovely Sif to the Warriors Three to the God of Thunder himself.

By the bristling beard of Odin, read the remaining works, for their authors show no less valor.

Now, where can a brother find a flagon around here?


  1. I might not get love in the podcast, but dammit, I get it here. 😀

  2. Well done(ith?).  The Thor fans must showith you much respect henceforth. 

  3. That last line nearly made me spit out my coffee.

  4. Forsooth, I didst savor No Hero #6 with its art most pleasant.

  5. Zounds!

  6. See, now if THOR was written like this I’d gleefully buy it again.

  7. Thus begins the first step in my campaign to be the new Thor writer.

  8. Am I the only one that’s reminded of several Woody Allen movies?

    "Ah, ’tis the chastity belt that the jealous King hath fastened upon me that no one but he shalst have the goods of the body."

    "To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you’re getting this down."

  9. @chlop – Yes?

  10. Thanks for the hi-light!
