Has anyone been reading comic books lately at Comicvine? How is it that ALL of these books are 4 and 5 star rated books? They are not that good. Shouldn't a 5 star comic represent the greater works in comic fiction? Say stories like Superman Red Son or even Claremont era X-Men? This doesn't even touch upon books that are iconic or actually represent the greatest works in comic fiction like, well, almost anything Alan Moore or The Dark Knight Returns which are certainly twice, no ten times as good as the muck that gets 5 star ratings on this site. Who are these comic reviewers? How am I supposed to trust these star ratings when they pretty much read 'If this is a new DC book it's definitely the best book right now as well as the rest of these 10+ 5-star rated DC books'. They are not THAT good. Some of them, sure, new Justice League gets a 5 star on it's good issues. Hell, even Aquaman was good enough to warrant a few 5-star reviews during the first run, other than that the website sets no real criterion for their rating system, that or they REALLY need people who are a bit more well read to be reviewing these books.
The issue I raise with it is that the comic review aspect of the site is great, in theory, but in practice it falls flat when every single book is 'the book to get'. Does anyone out there feel my discontent? Come on angry comic book nerds! Demand more honesty or better reviewers!
