CRAP, I just bought Joe the Barbarian today too

lister 1/21/2010 2:13:03 PM

Well, cd, you may like it. I couldn't handle the art (dude REALLY likes brown). But this is totally written for the trade, as you will see. I'd suggest holding off on even reading it until the 2nd issue comes out. It's that introductory.

And I keep engaging you only because, while you make me want to pull my hair out with the things you come up with sometimes, you aren't rude and don't move to immediate douche-baggery name calling the moment someone disagrees with you, unlike quite a few others on here. God speed on your travels!

Cool, I'm glad.  and thanks.  you're still wrong about Spider-Man though

the final issue of Kick Ass is finally coming out next week!!!

Steve Wacker (the editor of Amazing Spider-Man) got promoted to Senior Editor at Marvel.  They must be happy with what he's doing with the title.  I don't know how since sales suck all over the globe and the end of the marriage has caused puppies to burst into flames and the zombie plague is among us and the Red Hulk is awesome.

The puppies didn't burst into flames. I set them on fire.

SPOILERS for DARK AVENGERS:

 

Oh by the way, how lame-o was the Sentry reveal? I mean, he's a drug addict or something and the void is his hunger for more drugs or something or Moses was his dealer or something Biblical was going on and then the wife ad nauseum and ending with the cover art before the final page. So bad. Thank god Siege #1 was so good or I would be getting worried about now.

Wow I missed a lot today.

I think we all want the same thing here,  A return to greatness for Spiderman.  The book is lackluster at best.  Horrible artwork, uneven writing.  Ben is correct.  Enough with the grumpy roomate.  Move out already.  I also thought a gauntlet was when you fought one opponent right after the other.  Not weeks in between each fight. 

I personally prefer the comic shop that will tell me how it is, and not candy coat everything.  I shop there for that reason.  They were not bad mouthing the book, just stating facts and expressing their opinions as readers of it.  They even said that the writing got better for a little while, but has taken a few steps back recently.  We just want the best working on Marvels Flagship title.  Is it too much to ask for that?  We are talking about their Premiere character.  Shouldn't they have their best on the book?  That is all I am saying.   I hope we can agree on that.

Joe the Barbarian,..............okay, just read it.  Thank God it was only a dollar.

Today I also read my first Dark Wolverine Tilte.  Why have I not been reading this all along?  Can someone fill me in on the character a bit?  Thanks for the info.

I was going to detail some stuff, but there is a wealth of info on Daken at Wikipedia with a very detailed personal history for such a new character. Take a look there if you can first, and I will gladly try to answer any remaining questions you have.

And you really missed nothing today but a lot of blah blah back and forth between me and cd.

dbrock06, why is it that your retailers are telling you "how it is", and my retailer is "candy coating" things?  either way, I don't need validation from anyone to like what I like, or I don't need my retailer to tell me Spider-Man is ho-hum so that I can feel good about my decisions.  I merely asked him to see if the Spider apocalypse was truly upon us like the online community would like me to believe, or if it's just a bunch of hearsay used to validate their opinions.  maybe I'm just cranky because my wife is gone and I haven't gotten any for 3 months so what do I know.  

but, I'm going to assume you were rubbing Dark Wolverine comics all over your body though and that's why you don't enjoy Spider-Man as much anymore  

lister, read Joe the Barbarian.  not enough there to say I didn't like it, completely introductory like you said.  I'm going to assume you were rubbing Dark Wolverine comics all over your body and that's why you didn't like it though.   

I liked Seige #1 too.  thought it was a good big budget action movie type of issue.  The Sentry issue was more of the same for him.  so he was a junkie, for some reason I thought I already knew that from somewhere, and they still didn't explain what the hell he is.  not a fan.  there's no reason for him even to exist because they write him out of every significant fight scene, and he's one-note as a character.  he's crazy, I get it.  let's see some character progression.  he is married though, so that counts as character progression around here.  

plus he killed the Molecule Man.  I liked the Molecule Man.

why is it that your retailers are telling you "how it is", and my retailer is "candy coating" things?

Because you claimed that your retailer would never "badmouth" a book, but even so I don't think dbrock wasn't saying that yours was specifically candy coating things (but I am!), just that they wouldn't want a store owner who does that.

I am no Daken fan. He's interesting but that's about all. Better than I would have expected, but I think he's better in small doses on a team than solo. Then again I feel the same about Wolvie!

Definitely prefer ol' Owen to Bob, too!!
