I stopped reading his Legion after the 2nd(?) or 3rd(?) issue, but I have heard at issue #5, all the bullshit breaks down and the series begins. A lot of people I know and/or trust said it gets better at that point. However, that s what, one issue? Two at the most before the shutdown?
I may ... MAY load issue #5 in the ole DCU app a year from now and try it, but I, like most others here, have no desire to try it again. Especially at cover price

And I say that as someone that can ... used to be able to ... give or take Bendis.  Cheesy

(Although the general consensus seems to be that he has now, in the last 5 years ... I don't know ... fallen so far into his own bad tropes that his writing has become a hindrance to his own plots)
I've always understood the angst or downright hatred of even his early stuff, but I still enjoyed it ... for the most part, talking heads and all ... again, for the most part, but it has now gone well beyond ... well ... yeah ... Seems he is now universally up there with ... the old X-Men writer ... what his name ... Austen?

Guardians of the Galaxy 1-10: So, this is Donny Cates work.

No, it really, truly isn't. THAT is what I found so sad about that series. It was ... ya know ... copy and paste writing?
-His Thor is better (although, honestly, kind of "off putting" at first but it does give way to fantastic ideas ... while still having not the best dialog early on Undecided, but it gets sooo much better)
-His Venom has me hooked and I never, ever read Venom. Of course I'm not sure if that is a good thing for those that have or not, and saying that, I have not read an issue of Venom in a few months now ...but I enjoy his take (and that art doesn't hurt)
-His Silver Surfer Black is ... well, you just read that one  Cheesy (Ties in with some of his other stuff and the end of Aaron's Thor)
-His Cosmic Ghost Rider, tying in with his Thanos, was a pure BLAST!!! Loved everything about them both, except for the next Cosmic Ghost Rider mini that followed written by ... someone else
-His Dr. Strange was another fine piece of comic writing. For me at least. As a fan of the character he took me, the good doctor and Loki on a great ride! And the dog!!  Grin
-His Death of the Inhumans was pretty fun t ... hey, I still need to finish that one!!!! Shocked
-His God Country, the book that made him (some say) while good, to men,wasn't as amazing as I had heard. Enjoyable read with an ending that, to me, happened way too fast. Not horrible though, just an ending that felt very much like the end of that Abercrombe book  Cheesy
-His Redneck is a great Vampire tale. In the same vein as American Vampire ... in a way ... though to me .. and I am sure Jeff will agree, I think  Smiley a much better story, with all the stuff about the family and the curse
-His Babyteeth is another book I need to get back on. Girl gives birth to Devil baby and all that. Only a 20 issue series.
-His Buzzkill and ...
-Ghost Fleet are two that I have yet to read, but one day will. Ya know, along with 87,593 other titles I have on my to read list.

Yeah, I am loving me some Cates

I so wanted to like Bendis on Legion but it was terrible and I had to quit reading.  This looks interesting and might be good but I just canít go back.

Titans: Burning Rage #3 - End of arc and it was decent.  Iím sure Iím enjoying it as a fan of the Wolfman/Perez Titans.  Not sure what new readers would think.

Marvel Zombies: Ressurecton #1 - I guess this is an all new zombie story and not related to the original Marvel Zombie story.  Knowing that, I will say that I liked this first issue.  Interesting way that the zombie virus comes to earth.

Silver Surfer: Black #5 - I think Jimmy already said it all on this one.  I did enjoy this, including the art.

Doctor Aphra Annual #3 - art here was terrible but the story was fun using the bounty hunters from the series and taking place in the cantina on Tatooine.

Silver Surfer Black 1-5: A little love song to Stan Lee's and Moebius' work. A fine little piece, with some visuals that really were...stunning to take in. With my art background, I do love to take in an amazing visual, but I do also like to back up from it to 'see' how it was made. To step back to see how the artist drafted it all originally from the first pencil mark touched to a virgin white sheet of paper. Some pages here? Wow, the imagination! And a fine reason of a story to help reset and or push the Surfer in a new direction. I dig it.

Guardians of the Galaxy 1-10: So, this is Donny Cates work. At first, I was having a pretty time reading the first arc. Headless Thanos, resurrection threats, Star-lord down and out, picking up pieces after The Infinity War or whatever they called that latest piece. But as I kept reading, something started to gnaw at me...and bug me....This is all derivative. Find the prior members, tell a brief story of them, Church of Universal Truth, getting back the
the original Drax
, it all feels....derivative. Since Abnett&Lanning, this feels how you're supposed to write GotG books. So, I don't know if I soured myself on the book, but I want something to change or give a huge uptick to the book. Am I wrong? check that. Do you guys feel that way at all?

Starting Silver Surfer Black...

I am so non-objective when it comes to new Bendis ideas!

"This is gonna be terrible!"

"What shlock!"


"Bad execution, and worse follow through!"

LOL at myself. Never mind me, carry on!!

As I've said about everything with the Unlimited as well; hire some 3rd year college guys to fix your damned app. Searching and backing out of menus shouldn't reset your damn page. It's not that damned hard. Netflix does just fine with it!!
