    A two-fingered salute plus raspberry to the unfortunate fans of over 2 decades

    Most people learn, at some point in their lives, that it's best to tell a story and leave the audience wanting more, rather than try to give them extra; the extra usually sours them on the experience....

    The epitome of Azzarello's approach to Hellblazer

    I decided to review this story rather than the one just previous because, while 'Hard Time' was unquestionably the most ill-considered, ludicrous story Azzarello brought to the title, 'Good Intentions...

    Oh good, as if the original Civil War weren't a huge hideous disaster enough that we've only just finished brushing under the rug. Possibly the worst event ever, and they're revisiting it? Great going...

  • hushicho posted a message on the post Brutally Honest: What's Up With Naked Thor?!.

    Why is this even an issue?You see literally nothing in the comic. This is not the first time that shadow-censored nudity has occurred in American superhero comics, nor will it be the last.This is not...

  • hushicho posted a message in the forum topic First Look: SUPERIOR IRON MAN #1. on the Comic Book Preview board

    Great! Another worthless forced heel turn for Tony. Like they haven't done that before.I just got done revisiting the execrable 'The Crossing' arc. Seems like the only things they can think to do with...

  • hushicho posted a message in the forum topic LOTR vs The Hobbit. on the Battles board

    The Hobbit is a better-written and more cohesive story, the characters are more likable and more defined. To judge a story by its number and scope of battles is frankly puerile, and it's led to plenty...
