GOOD IDEAS: I definitely see plenty of good ideas. 1. A.I./Sentinel hybrid that attacks everyone because everyone's body contains genetic mutations. CHECK. Rachel needing to grow. CHECK. Bringing in more of the great characters available to liven up the book like Pixie and Gambit. CHECK. Interpersonal/emotional attachment and development. CHECK. The problem is that even though these ideas are all more

X-Men Gold #3: The X-Men become MUTANT TERRORISTS!!!

I could talk about all the standing and/or walking around of talking heads written by people who's biggest concern is the proper blend of non-GMO organic beans in their coffee. This is NOT how people behave when they are running into a battle with their LIVES at stake.

This comics is bad. The art looks good in individual panels but the characters still stand around most of the time doing nothing. STATIC. But the 'writing' is worse than bad, it's TERRIBLE. How did Terrax get here? I don't know. Why is he here? I don't know. What does he want? I don't know. But what is worse, the 'writer' of this comic book CLEARLY believes that the answers to these questions DON' more

All these ridiculously high scoring and wordless ratings seem AWFULLY suspicious to me

Here's what works in this issue: the art is generally good. The lines are crisp, the colors pop, and panels and layouts flow with a sense of both motion and power.

The downside: Ken Lashley is treading just a little too close to the MTV-ization of our favorite mutants in that every single character looks a little too generically perfect and beautiful.

Remember how awkward an more

Let's be simple and clear: Ultimates2 #5 SUCKS. The plotting is bad. The writing is bad. The art is bad. Ultimates2 #5 seems to epitomize the new Marvel. The dialogue is either generic or just plain awful. Once again, Marvel has produced a comic book that in addition to being bad is also boring. As I sit and read, I find myself FORCING myself to turn the page.

Why am I still reading thi more
