Re: X-O Manowar [2017] #25 Discussion

I read the 2017 series via the Omnibus. The start with Giorello's art really had me engaged, but I am a big fan of his work. From the omnibus perspective, the different artist kinda matched the writing for each individual story arc but overall I don't know if it's worth picking up Vol 2 of the serie...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Our Fighting Forces. Actually found it on Wednesday at Walmart. The Medal of Honor story was good. "Remembering The Leopard" by James Robinson was excellent. "The Last Full Measure" had some great Richard Corben art. There were some dud stories in it as well, but the good ones made up for it.

Re: Are we becoming indifferent towards Valiant?

3. I have no interest in Final Witness, Bunn on Shadowman sounds boring, and Savage looks like cartoon-y crap, When comics start getting distributed again, I would be willing to try Final Witness and Shadowman. I have enjoyed some of Bunn's other work, and would like to see his take on Shadowman.

Re: XO Manowar [2020] #1 Discussion

It's nowhere near as bad as Acclaim X-O, which I'm currently reading out of morbid curiosity, but it's a sign that they aren't trying to keep the characters in-character. Disagree, Mark Waid and Acclaim are much better than the drivel being produced at VEI right now. My opinion is based off the cra...

Re: Bloodshot #0 Discussion

This is the most coherent Bloodshot comic in some time. It's still got Seeley wording quirks that pull me out of the story for a blip, but otherwise enjoyable. It's unclear where in the timeline this taking place other than after Harbinger Wars 2. And it's also unclear why this is a #0 other than t...

I like the concept of Edeilion and Bloodshot having a romantic relationship, but will be dropping this title.

It's the one you owned.
Does it have the same CGC number?

I think this is the copy that Geek Comics had sold back in 2018.

Bloodshot and HARD Corps 2, I would be all over that.

I got the Carbon Fiber cover. It feels too light for the price tag. With the glass books you got a nice weight to go with the higher price.

Bloodshot Reborn and Salvation were “better.” Bloodshot Rising Spirit was MUCH “worse.” This book is not terrible and it’s not great. It is what it is, and it’s a significant improvement from where we were just a few months ago. Personally, I liked what Dinesh put out; however, I am not going to ha...
