sigh, this book isn't "bad" and yet... it just isn't "good" either. when it first started I really thought it had lots of potential. I like the idea of the team doing "street level" stuff - I really do. But there has to be a way to present that without the forced SJW bleeding heart over the top crap like the Freelancers. There are plenty of crimes this team can fight other than racism and evil more

Happily I ready this in a shop and didn't have to waste any money on it. This comic illustates why Marvel have got themselves into a bit of a mess. There is no interest in an exciting or interesting story, or well defined characters. There is only a desire to spew extreme liberal and feminist propaganda at the comic buying public.

(UPDATE) I initially post rating for most books before writing reviews. In this case, I find myself disheartened looking back at America and the public. Again the most important point the professional critics list in its favor is politics. I do not care about politics. You are not paying four or five dollars per issue of a comic book for politics or an agenda, you are buying a piece of art. more

Good artwork cannot save a rancid story. Yo Soy Americano is one of those books you can tell is going to disappoint. Most 'professional' reviews give it no small matter of praise. This is not surprising as the average comic book critic can be bought for a ham sandwich. However, I quickly realized that this wasn't a simple matter of quid pro quo. The review gushed, "a more timely hero the more

While the comic is solid, we are subjected to three and a bit pages of Ruckra's anti-Trump ravings in the letters page. I really wish he'd stop this lecturing... I am just not interested, and it all comes across as if he is having a mental breakdown.
