May 9, 2013 - Big disappointment
Even with the slow down
It's still easier to read Tales.
Does this cover even make a difference anymore?
Look at the last few comics. Mix them up, and no one. I MEAN NO ONE. Can tell any difference - or connection - between ANY of these comics. That's what was crashing this - and these comics - DEEP into the ground.
For some reason, this comic has Aric - still homeless - hanging out with other homeless people who apparently - have been asked to be burned alive by some other slum lords of the area. And he watches them burn, and then has a chat with the assailants. The comic looks rather bad - sketchy crazy - so polished it looks silly. STILL going through these - for YOU!
I loved Swordsman, too.
My wife always says in a joking voice, "I'm just a dumb girl that doesn't know what to buy for the car." Then she parlays that into me helping her out with tech stuff. Not that I know ANYthing about cars. This portrayal of the Pepper woman is exactly the stupid girl demeanor in the comic. Helpless, dumb, and in need of help. These are slowly getting worse.
The Cap story got worse, too. I was hoping with the Bucky appearance it would get better. And Swordsman. I know now why they killed the guy. The art in this one is very juvenile, and starting to get tough to read these again.
