I've been completely absorbed in this show since it came out. The mythology of the show has me absolutely hooked. I'm a sucker for all this crap, but I find myself NEEDING to know everything about beings that are older than 100 years and have seen shit like the civil war. Some might call me a sucker.

The fact that this fucking exists = The final seal that holds Lucifer at bay, broken.

But I find the majority of Bluewater's output pisses me off on sight. I'm a big proponent of non-superhero comics, and in theory I have nothing against biographical material. But it seems like everything this company puts out is a half-assed cash in on whatever marginally noteworthy figure is in the media this week. Sonya Sotomayor? Bo Obama? Robert Fucking Pattinson? What insight could these comics give us into these figures, and why should we even care in most cases? And the Vincent Price book is almost as bad. The man's been dead nearly twenty years. Why would anyone need to use his name to flog a crappy anthology? Are Bluewater's staff so completely devoid of ideas that they have to have some kind of an anchor to chain their ideas to, no matter how worthless the property? If a fan of the company's material could tell me what I'm missing, I'd be more than happy to listen, but Bluewater just seem like such complete whores.

The guy did a fantastic job making him look like a drooling waterhead. The book should be called The Further Adventures of Simple Jack.<p> "Mama, I'll see you again tonight in my head movies. But this head movies m-m-m-m-m-makes my eyes rain."

Like most "event books" (aside from the surprisingly awesome Blackest Night and current Brightest Day), it sucked. And, like ALL of Marvel's event books, it REALLY sucked. One would like to blame Disney, but it's really all the fault of Brian "Hackous Maximous" Bendis' inability to write, and his fan's inability to discern between shitty writing (his) and good writing (e.g. Morrison, Johns, Tomasi, Brubaker, Fraction, et al). In short, Marvel's quality continues to degrade (with the exception of the art, which is usually good), whilst DC keeps getting better and better (both in terms of writers and artists).

I just got "Origins of Siege" like two weeks ago, what the hell? Anyway, "House of M" was the last good Marvel event IMO. Although most of the spinoff titles sucked, stick to the main story. But I know many people didn't like it because it didn't really work as a single-issue-at-a-time comic. True, but as a collected storyline it was good. So yeah, even the last GOOD one had major reservations attached.

They got Osbourne and Sentry died because Tony Stark crashed a Helicarrier into him (Hellicarriers apparently being stronger than the strongest superhero now). Also: the art was really good, and the dialogue was worse than that written by a 3rd grader with a learning disability. Also, there are now 982 Million different Avengers teams now and they're all boring. One wonders if The Heroic Age will be any good. One knows it could be, but won't. <br><br>(Btw, I forgot to mention Hickman, Abnett, and Lanning in my last post -- they're also good and would have taken Bendis' so-so idea and turned it into awesome. Sadly... the Bendii "wrote: it. Sigh.)

Is that like a try to re-kindle those ancient teen love comic titles?
