Wow....that is some awful artwork. Just seeing the preview art is enough to keep me from wasting money on this.

Rogues #1

By: Joshua Williamson, Leomacs
Released: Mar 23, 2022

Ten years ago, the Rogues disbanded and went their separate ways. But time hasn't been kind to the former blue-collar super-criminals. Caught in an endless cycle of prison, rehab, dead-end jobs, broken relationships, probation, and endless restitution fees, the Rogues are sick of paying for their crimes. Luckily, Captain Cold has a plan. One last j...

Thanks for your opinion. The art is a big part of a comic book. When it's this bad, I'm not shelling out the money for it. I gave the story the benefit of the doubt based on the writer and what I have seen.

RJWarester - Mar 24, 2022

Reviewing it based off what you perceive it will be like is not a valid review. If you didn't buy it because of the art then you should've kept it at that and not write a review.

Toonstrack reviewed Iron Fist #1 Feb 16, 2022

Be honest. Is ANYONE surprised by the usuals giving this a 1 star without even reading it?

Iron Fist has been a mantle since day one. Rand wasn't even the first and he wasn't ever going to be the only one, but he was evidently the first white one. The irony is he WAS the diversity hire. But that's lost on the usuals.

Of course Kun Lun doesn't have politically inclined clow more

@hex ya I'm sure the book isn't a 1, that's reserved for stuff that's not worth the paper and the ink it's printed on. I'm not a huge irony fist fan but almost nothing the big 2 make is a 1/10 or a 10/10. Even the amount of 9/10 or 9.5/10s I see is rediculous. A 9/10 book is one that every comic fan of that character would want on its shelf. And some reviewers give that away like they are the parents of the writer or artist of every book. Every book gets a 9/10 it's dumb.

Toonstrack - Feb 17, 2022

If you must ask, no it isn't a 10, it is probably a 7.5 - 8.5 but im trying to make a point here. One of the 1 star reviews showed up early morning the day the book came out so it was obvious that user didn't read it. Im countering stuff like that

9.5

This book has received high praise. It warrants it. What they are able to accomplish with nothing but masterful art is impressive for anyone. But for the issue to be so expressive and carry so much emotional weight just by using things we are all familiar with is what truly sells it. Well worth picking up.
