@nickxh: not buying original sin 8 for 4.99. I refuse to support marvels attempt to make that a regular price. And if more people don't start protesting it is going to be a reality

What is with marvel and all their 4.99 books this week? Maybe I can understand death of wolverine but Hawkeye v. Deadpool is 4.99 too? And the finale of original sin!?

Marvel is gross sometimes with their greediness. They sucker everyone in for 7 issues with original sin then hit everyone up for an extra dollar if you want to read the final issue? I'll find other ways to read the finale

Saying batman eternal is off putting is one of the craziest statements I've heard on the podcast.

I know it's hip to like marvel and bash everything dc does but batman eternal has been crazy good week after week. And futures end has been way better than you give it credit for.

And this was one of the best issues of justice league in years and you guys talk like it's mediocre yet can't rave enough about the hipster favorite Hawkeye.

I think that some of you complaining about the story not moving fast enough, or being exciting every single issue, need to realize that a weekly book reads a lot different than a monthly.

They are going to have put out over 1000 pages of story in a year. To expect huge plot developments and tons of action every 20 pages might be asking a bit much. Having a slow issue here and there doesn't mean that the whole story is bad.

It's kinda like not liking a whole book because there's one or two bad panels in it...

Another great issue. This book has become one of my most anticipated reads each week. It's only on issue 8 of 52 so there is plenty of issues to tell the story and not have to rush things

This book has been insanely good and the fact that it comes out every week is almost too good to be true. This has quickly become one of my favorite books

I love the direction the new creative team is headed in. I couldnt care less what race or hair color the new wally west is. The story is great so I'm going to read and enjoy it. Some people need to lighten up and remember it's only comic books...

With how rare 2 star reviews are on this site you expect a book that receives one to be really bad but this book was nowhere near bad.

There was a lot of fun action and the art was what we've come to expect of Gleason. Yes, art is very subjective but there is an expectation of a certain level of consistency when we come to a site every week to read the reviews.

@jonny_anonymous: Revival is one of the best books every month and it's criminal the lack of attention it gets here and on other sites.
