the cover makes a lot more sense now 
 
The dome thing was also done by Simpsons Movie, not exactly original

OK, you didn't like the art, we get it :P 
Hilarious stuff, guys :P

Posted by Gawdzilla

I agree not a whole lot happened, but if the preview of this week's X-Force is any indication, it looks like SC is shifitng back into high gear!
Posted by jordama

I actually did laugh a lot during the video
Posted by Caligula

there was a Tales from the Darkside episode in the 80's. that beat Stephen King, The Simpsons, and X-men all to the Dome trapping a city thing.

Edited by ILuvMsMarvel

Not to mention the sphere in Girls, with the giant sperm that was the "nucleus".  

I agree with Babs, get an original idea.



*waits for Admiral Ackbar to fly in, look at the dome and say "It's a trap!"*

Posted by NXH

Do I sense sarcasm, Babs? 
Okay, my turn. Greg Land is my favourite artist too! LOL =P  

Posted by xerox_kitty

I giant clown nose is more complimentary than what I said (giant red zit). 
 
The sphere enclosing a city is too much like Bleach.  The Seireritei in the Soul Society was protected by a bubble, but that was invisible (and therefore didn't look ridiculous). 
 
Nevermind the women looking alike... when did Toad turn into Cyclops' TWIN?!   And of course there's Hope who looks like a porn star, which is just plain WRONG for a girl her age!  And not to mention Cable's wholly inappropriate expression after Hope makes her decision about whether to stay or run into the future... he looks like he'd just about to get lucky with her.  Too creepy.
 
Why do they keep writing Cyclops on a jet pack?  It looks RIDICULOUS!  But only slightly less ridiculous than the giant red zit.

i thought land did a good job this issue an i loved the guest appearances although i thought toads was a bit random even more than the ones outside the dome

@xerox-kitty:  not to mention....Psylocke can frickin fly on her own!   
 
Thanks for another goddawful issue, Mr. Land, I hate having holes in my collection but I refuse to support your career. *middle finger* XP

@jedd:
That's just some foreshadowing...well, if the writing is good then it is.....if it's bad then this will be a random Toad appearance.
Posted by EdwardWindsor

i think titans west may have to steal a pic or clip of babs doing westside lol,  fun review guys i agree looks alot like a clown nose or comic relief nose for uk  people.

If you are refering to a certain shadow, I am right there with you. It wasn't even subtle

Land........... Lost interest. I despise how he draws Emma looking like Pamela Anderson.
 
About Namor's look
"Welcome to the Acific Ocean! Notice there is no P in it. We'd like to keep it that way."  
 
Uh, Babs. If you hold the "West Side" like that. It looks like "East Side".

I will never understand the appeal of this.
Posted by ImperiousRix

That is certainly a large clown nose... reminds me of The Simpsons Movie.

I know! Scott should get that tech that Fury had to fly rather than a stupid jet pack!

Me neither.... 
 
I think that Land's art make people bring the rating down... Let's say this would've been drawn by Mike Choi this Unscripted video would've had less of Babs laughing and more seriousness by her part saying... "I gave it a 4 just for the beautiful art"...
Have someone do that comic again with a different artist and you'll see what I mean!

Namor looks like Spock

Posted by doordoor123

... i really liked this issue... : /
And Why is the sphere not original? Is it really that big of a deal? Its like saying that a flying superhero isnt original. Stop complaining and read the story that the writers are trying to feed you.

Posted by evilhomer

funny episode  =D
 
Too bad this chapter of SC is a letdown but the next one is X-Force so hopefully it rebounds nicely.

The dome thing was also done in the Simpsons Movie, not exactly original

@xerox-kitty: At least we better be thankful Mike Carey is the writer, so I suppose it backs up the Greg Land art (even by the slightest).
Posted by crazywolf

Some titles or characters sure become easy targets for laughs. Hilarious review. Some customers at the LCS have been "clownin" this book as well.

Yep G-Man has mentioned that in several vids in his reviews or interviews. The last time was probably awhile ago.

Posted by AmazingSpiderMike

Great review guys. There was just one thing that bothered me. 
 
Babs,  Greg Land  is your favorite artist but yet you rip him apart? Granted he kind of deserves it (giant clown nose). lol.

Sorry guys, I wasn't a fan of this review....too much (no pun intended) Clowning

Sadly me neither but I'm used to it. It's probably users around 15-25 yo. I'd facepalm if it was much older than late 20s.

@crazywolf: You really think thats from users 15-25?  I think you're giving 'firsters' too much credit, i'm thinking the age group is 10-16, any older than that and they should just leave the internet.

ew, don't associate that with my age bracket.
 
Round of applause to Greg Land, he's like the best conman that ever lived. He's been using the same character molds for centuries and gets a fat paycheck for it, that's hot.
 
Legacy sucked though, no surprise as Second Coming sucks. But That's to be expected when last Chapter's cliffhanger was, "Find out what happens to the X-Club/"

Respect the biggest hack "artist" in comics who traces everything from porn to other artist's work... and get paid for it?
 
Not in a million f%#cking years. That loser shouldn't even have a job.

Clownin' this issue, dog! I love how G-man looks at babs after she throws up the  West Side sign, like, "WTF,man?" and he lets the comic drop like he wouldn't wipe his ass on it! XD
