Superior fan - Mar 23, 2017

I don't rate everything at a two. I rated Gwenpool between a 7-9. I gave Renew Your vows a solid 8 overall.

Superior fan - Mar 23, 2017

I see that you, FT Metler gave this issue an 8. What about this issue marks it as an '8'? If an 8 is exceptional, then does that mean that this is better than most books Marvel and DC put out? I hardly think so. But that's why I gave it such a low score. I feel it is actually subpar, far below other titles.

Billyndo - Mar 6, 2017

Well, I don't agree with you. Orlando's Midnighter and Midnighter and Apollo titles have generally high ratings in their reviews, and those comics addresses homosexuality in a very explicit and prominent way. Also, we can wait for the new Iceman comic release to testify such homophobia in comics. Batwoman tends to be such an incredible comic. I'm not ignoring there are lots of homophobic comics fans, I just don't agree that that is the main cause of the discontentment regarding America.

Jack's Yattering - Mar 24, 2017

I'm straight and in complete agreement with Billyndo. MIDNIGHTER was (mostly) amazing while AMERICA (which i looked forward to because I really like the character) is virtually unreadable.

If you haven't heard the news, Lemire, Smallwood, and Bellaire are wrapping everything up and leaving after issue #14. Part of me wants this run to keep going forever, but the other part is excited to finally have some closure. Either way, we should all be glad that we got to enjoy such an amazing Moon Knight story.

Great world detail as always. Not sure I enjoyed the fairy character but I'll give her another issue to see if she develops beyond being a bit grumpy. Boone is acting more badass and the ending was extremely interesting, lots of questions about Boones past to be addressed in coming issues!
