    With the ending of the last issue being as cool and shocking as it was, I really didn’t think this…

    Roberts is the kind of book that falls under the heading “quirky.”  It’s a a fun book with a twist. …

    Oh, boy.  I guess you can say I suffered through issue one of this series… while I enjoyed the meeting…

    I tried to read this. 

    Honest, I tried.

    November 4, 2008 10:36 am The bonus question... not  Bill Murray fan at all.  But, I'd go with Lost in Translation for the Scarlett Johansson factor.

    Wow, this is a first for me.  On the initial scrolling through this weeks books, there wasn't a single pull for me... after going through it again, I pulled the new Sandman book (not the Absolute, those will be on my Christmas list).  I'm sure once I get to the store (Mike's Comics in New Baltimore, MI), I'll add a couple.

     Was thinking of picking up House of Mystery, but they're at #7...

    Just watched the episode... thank you DVR!!  I do enjoy the way this plot is progressing, but I do also agree there could be some trimming of deadweight... I guess that's the hazard of 20-some episode seasons.

    I guess the first thing I'd change is that Sylar and Peter are simply way too powerful.  This was a mistake from the first season...  it would make Arthur Petrelli seem that much more dangerous had we not already seen two all-powerful characters.

    October 29, 2008 8:44 am Ya know, I bought the last few Supes specials... Jimmy & New Krypton and was thinking of staring to pick up this New Krypton series.  But, man... that cover is terrible.  That coupled with a stong disliking for Franks' Superman art has me second guessing my thoughts about picking this series up.

    I really hadn't a clue as to what was going on.  I guess that's the hazard of taking so long between issues and not reading the crossover/tie-ines.

    I guess that really hurt it's chances of it being very good to my eyes.  Nothing seemed especially compelling the art was adequate... the rest was just kinda a big WTF?

    I guess it's a pet peeve of mine that if you have to go get the rest of the issues out and re-read them you've:

    a.  done a piss poor job of recapping
    b.  taken way too long between issues
    c.  I don't care anymore
    d.  the story is confusing
    e.  all of the above
    f.  my fanboy cred is lost

    September 30, 2008 10:35 pm I bought this last week and didn't really get the jist of the whole thing.
    September 17, 2008 11:22 pm Well played.  My pick was a toss up between this and The Sword... with the Sword coming up short by slight edge.  The depth of the characterization won out... not to mention Terry Moore's amazing art (although to nitpick: he cross hatches a little too much for my taste).  But, The Sword had an amazing fight with a nice little cliffhanger ending...  and well, um... All Star Superman was pretty bad, even the art, which I find normally pretty damn good was bad to my eyes.
