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.
