    I don’t know how to feel about this book. Uncanny is by far my least favorite X-book. I find myself…

    I just don’t get this. Has James Robinson ever heard a living person speak before? Hell has he ever read…

    November 6, 2008 8:18 pm I didn't really like the movie either and it was mostly the choices in direction. I cradled my head when the scene of Hulk fighting the hummers. Whenever they went to a wide shot you could see that they couldn't spring for anything other than about 10 soldiers. I didn't love the original but thought it was directed a heck of a lot better.
    October 22, 2008 10:45 pm I totally agree. I just don't care about whats going on because I don't feel the sense of dread I feel I should be feeling. I don't know if he could have done a better story with the villains he chose. I don't care how much you try, I've been reading stories with Skrulls popping up in them since I was old enough to read so they don't give me the same dreaded feeling like a Darkseid or even a Galactus.
    October 8, 2008 11:56 pm this is the superman I love, Johns can give him a personality without making him a meat head dick(action anyone). I saw the little box on cbr.com about the news spoiling the ending to the issue but I decided to not click, so I was in a small panic when jonathan grabbed his arm because I knew he was gone. It's almost like losing your own pops(or grandfather), every time they kill Pa Kent it just stirs up all kind of stuff for me.

    September 26, 2008 1:23 pm @Kory- Naw, I feel very strongly about voting with you dollar. I saw it all the time, which is why I'm not paying for Secret Invasion and stopped paying for Civil War/WWH after two issues. I wish more fans would, but it's kind of out of the usual practice for comic fans, and I think the companies know that we're almost chained to certain books and characters because we're so entrenched in them. It's one of the curses of being an avid comic fan. A friend of mine buys a book eventhough he doesn't like it because he feels that with these books being solicited so many months ahead it doesn't matter if a current arc is bad because it'll be over soon.
    September 25, 2008 11:20 pm @Kory-it's like Ron and other comic fans I just read Superman books. It's not like I'm paying money for Superman anymore but I still read it because I'm trying to give it a shot. It's not like I stress over it, it's just me using this site...which its created for...to just express my feelings about it. Trust that I lose no sleep or stress out over comics, if I did I would have died from a heart attack a long time ago. Just using the internets to voice my thoughts.
    September 25, 2008 5:40 pm I love Krypto but I'm bothered by Lois' reaction to him. Awhile back when Casey or Loebb(?) brought Krypto back Lois liked him and when she was walking him Mongol tried to attack her and Krypto chomped on his throat. When Superman took Krypto away, Lois was the one who told Superman to not go hard on him because he's a dog protecting her and now she hates him? Really? Now if I had never read a comic with Krypto and Lois Lane in them then maybe I'd buy her reaction but it just comes off as "hey I need Lois to be a shrew about something and she's generally understanding and progressive...so why not have her suddenly hate the dog" meh. Action comics: Buy in store, Superman: torrent. simple as that, that's how I vote with my dollar Kory.
    September 23, 2008 10:43 pm @TheNextChampion- I agree with you, but I did enjoy Golden Age for the most part but just for the fight not the actual stilted story telling. I remember being excited when Robinson launched JSA and read the first 5 issues and quickly decided the guy wasn't for me...but once again I was excited for his Superman and have been left wanting my money back because the characters are acting like they have been replaced by skrulls or something, maybe he'll settle down and get a handle on the characters and not try to shoe horn in odd behavior for actual character development.
    September 23, 2008 12:27 am This is the only X-Book I look forward to right now...hopefully the stupid Uncanny suck train doesn't seep into this book.
