I didn't actually like it that much. But I think it's necessary to go against this hate-motivated rating. I agree with some of the critics I read here, the issue relies too much on the character coolness, and this character doesn't need that. The first issue was way better.

Jack's Yattering - Apr 7, 2017

It's misleading because not everyone reads EVERY review. Your "10" still contributes to the aggregate score at the top of the page. AMERICA is not a good comic. I love the character but this book is terrible. Yes, it is absolutely, my opinion but the "hate-motivated" rating is because people hate the comic, not anything in particular re: the character. People have been pretty clear as to why they dislike the book..yourself included. Your self-righteous 10 only serves to discredit your ideas

Superior fan - Apr 8, 2017

Cesar Castanha, you give the book a score of 10. That is a score of a perfect ten. You cannot control what others do. What you can do is become a person others look to for a fair evaluation. What do you really think this was? A five or a six? I gave America #2 a 1.5, not a 1 or any other score, because I believe it was the worst comic I saw this week. It was shockingly bad considering it had very little else it could get wrong.

America's current life needs to be more appealing than any time travel/cameos, and the fangirl group has me optimistic that the next issue will be more like the first. Her dialogue often seems like it should be in thought bubbles. The art is solid , and there is no excuse for ratings below a 5 other than agenda.

bucswin611 - Apr 7, 2017

I sincerely appreciate the discussion, everyone. Challenging thoughts all around. I suppose I was trying to say that the severity of the negative reviews (it's okay to not like an issue!) seems to be not recognizing that one may not be the target audience for a book. Agenda was too strong of a word, and 5 was an arbitrary number. I try to put more than just the # in my review, and even if it is short, I will consider my word choice in the future. As a new user, I love the passion on the site!

Superior fan - Apr 8, 2017

As do I, BucSwin611. There are many books not made for me. But even if it isn't something I like, I'm more concerned with technique. For example, I loved Gwenpool #1-forward. Yet I lowered the ratings on some issues because the fill in artists lacked the technical proficiency of the Guihiru group. I communicated that the artwork would be weaker, yet still I enjoyed the book.

David Gabriel is a moron for saying Diversity is at fault for the Marvel Sales slump; that's not the case, that has never been the case -- I blame bad writing and events, and this comic is a perfect example of bad writing.

Do you want to buy a comic that is basically 22 pages of "How do you do, fellow kids" and "YASSS QUEEEN"? Then this comic is perfect for you -- it's also perfect if y 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.
