August 24, 2013 - Not what I'd expected
I am picking Magnus.
At least it has good art, right?
Okay, I've been on serious hate on the entire run of this comic here. And this one isn't what I'd call hate worthy. It has come some way - but still can't really balance the humor from a few characters against the real darkness of Magnus. Maybe that's why the comic is so unlikable - because I don't really want to root for him - and the other side of the can thing is just a little bit too snarky for me.
But the comic does have a few moments. I kind of DID like the confrontation at the beginning of the comic between the robots and the lost employee. And I normally don't like the substitute Disney replacements, but this one wasn't as awful as it could have been. I do hope we get somewhere in the cans eating meat thing soon, though. Can ALL these people really disappear?
What a dull mess.
We talk today about hyper-extending storylines... Extending a line well beyond its own mess. This was a boring story. Strange how it could have Galactus, Silver Surfer, the FF, Crystal, and still have almost nothing in it. Sure, Psycho-Man does a great job of pretty much wrecking every part of the story - and in micro-world, nonetheless.
The realization of the micro-world - is that it looks pretty much like every other part of the world - only with laser-ish things coming out of everywhere. The attitude of a few characters toward the women is nearly reprehensible, too. Complete waste of a comic.
