There is some good, some OK, and some plain bad in this annual. First the Chrononauts story is excellent. It is well written and works well with the art style. The Kick-Ass story is quite good as well. It paces the turns it takes in just a few pages is worth the read. Now to American Jesus. I love this graphic novel. The art here is amazing. Unfortunately the story is not good. It barely i more

More crap from Oni. Their editorial team has no idea what fans want. There's a reason why no one is buying this book. It is a dumb concept with poor execution.

Once again Oni Press tries to be trendy and falls flat on it's face. The premise is idiotic to say the least, a cooking show in space. At no time does the reader care about the characters or the story (if you can call it that). The book is bad, and I guarantee that this series will be selling less than 1500 copies by the end of its run.

So of course the issue starts off with shopping, because all girls just want to buy pretty things. Then of course she has clumsily fall into a boy, because that's what girls do when they meet cute boys. Batgirl apparently travels to an anime world when she fights. This comic may be geared towards girls. So they took a powerful, strong character and diminished her to a bubble-headed sexist girl more

I can't describe how absolutely terrible this comic is. We gave up Gail Simone for this. The writers apparently think we need to put Batgirl in an episode of HBOs girls. The artwork is sub-par at best. There is nothing redeeming about this. I'm probably going to cancel my subscription if it doesn't get better.

The issue can't figure out what it wants to be. I normally really enjoy Remender's writing, but the dialogue in this issue is terrible. All the characters are speaking in the same voice. They all are making really bad jokes, and then try to sound forceful right before they punch something. This is such a let down after the stellar Uncanny Avengers.
