Outside of Doomsday "killing" Superman and Bane breaking Bats, I gave DC Comics n the 90's zero attention. Glad to see they also drank the Leifeld Style cool-aide:

No way this site lasts too long without Disney or Warner Bros tearing it down, but enjoy while it lasts:

Deadpool/Cable: Split Second - 3/10

Christ, what a mess. Nicieza knows how to write Deadpool, obviously, and the art's pretty decent, but otherwise, Jesus fuck. Haven't read anything this disjointed and indecipherable since the last time I touched a Bendis-written X-book. No, actually, it's worse. And just because it's supposed to be funny doesn't excuse it.

I've never liked the Deadpool/Cable comics. Too much, "Despite me being bat shit insane and a paid murderer I still have feelings, Cable."

Never read one before. I read the Cable book for a good long while back in the day, but that's it. This was actually the first Deadpool comic I read, I only knew him from the movie. I mean, I was aware of the character, but I never really cared.

So, Fight Club 2, um...
I guess any writer whose entire body of work is completely overshadowed by their first eventually grows to hate it, but if you're going to let the world know by satirizing it, might as well do it like this. It's pretty good.

Yes.

Sort of.

Palahniuk wrote it himself, and it's surprisingly competent for someone who's never written comics.

There should be a superhero named Liefeld who's super power is that at every second one part of his anatomy is disproportionate from the rest.

Not in the 18 issues I read. Or maybe she did and I zoned out but I don't think so.

It doesn't really matter either way honestly.

Frank Miller's Robocop #1-9 - 7/10

Pretty good. I liked the story a lot but I generally dislike this kind of Robert Crumb-influenced busy gonzo art style.

I remember reading about it a long time ago and was confused being that every other Marvel female outside of Jubilee has huge knockers regardless.

All-New All Different Avengers #1-6

I dunno, 5/10 maybe because at least it looks ok when Asrar's drawing it. I was really excited for an Avengers book by Mark Waid and Adam Kubert, but this thing is flatter than that beer you couldn't finish the morning after. Waid's usually good at this sort of thing and you'd think he'd bring his A game to a high profile gig, but there's basically nothing here. Dull dialogue, boring characters and a story that spans six issues and I feel like I could summarize what happened in two sentences. And no, it's not because all the characters are their PC temporary replacements, if anything what little mileage Waid gets out of that makes up the few moments when the book doesn't read like printed sleeping pills.

I've got 8 more issues of this crap piled up, but I may just scrap it from my pull list and never read the rest.

Is that the one that takes place after Doctor Doom's Secret Wars? Where Stark is broke but the rest of Marvel forgot so he's rich again? Post Secret Wars Marvel was terrible. Post Civil War 2 is even worse.

I don't know, I stopped following all of that shit a long time ago. Stark is broke, yeah, and it's before Civil War 2, whatever that means. It doesn't seem to be necessary to know any of that shit, though, which I guess is one of the few things Waid got right.

I sometimes wonder if Mark Waid doesn't have a ghost writer or secret partner or something.

I'd say corporate comic book writers in general have a tendency to, let's say, distinguish between those projects they actually want to do and those they just happily sign on to do for the paycheck and then completely phone in. There are piles and piles of Warren Ellis comics that are completely unreadable garbage. It's just that you don't necessarily hear about those because he sells his shit scripts to smaller publishers, probably hoping they'll disappear.

So what surprises me isn't that Waid wrote something sub-standard, but that it's such a high-profile book and something that you'd think plays to his strengths. It's a straight-up superhero book with angsty young characters. That's Waid's bread and butter, and he totally fucked it up.

Maybe he just figures since these aren't the real Avengers, it doesn't matter. Or he's pissed that Marvel wouldn't let him play with the big names and gave him Black Captain America and Boobs Thor instead.
