Thread: I Still Like POWERS.

  1. #1

    I Still Like POWERS.

    Bendis gave me the latest tpb at Emerald City Comicon, and this is still a great book.

    Nice job, Mr. Bendis.

    There was never any doubt that it was still a great book.

    I know the general consensus some places online seems to be that the quality dropped alot since the switch to Icon, but I don't see it.

    Secret Identity and The 25 Coolest Dead Superheroes of All Time are two of the best arcs of the entire series, in my opinion.

    I didn't know opinions were otherwise.

    Doesn't your acknowledgment of there being a general consensus that the book took a drop in quality confirm the existence of doubt? And yet, you're also stating there was never any doubt? I'm so confused!!

    Okay, I'm just being English-teachery. And I'm not even an English teacher. Otherwise I never would have used a word like "teachery". It's just that your first line in response to Gail came off, to my "ears", as sounding like "What the hell are you talking about? There was never any doubt! Anywhere! Stop making things up, mad woman!". Like you were snapping at her for suggesting such a thing. And then you went right on after to talk about all the other doubters. I think you and Gail are right on the same page here. You both heard the naysayers and all their whiny doubtery (that's not a real word either...), read the material, and realized that all the doubters were quite and properly high, and that Powers has continued its reign of rocking all the way through.

    Honest, I'm not trying to be snarky. Guess I'm just pointing out the "how dare you?" feel of your response, in case you didn't realize that, though it may have just seemed that way to me. And also, backing you and Gail on your Powers love. The reign continues.

    Your post just confuses me.

    Bah!

    I think there is a contingent that soured on the thing mainly because it became less reliable, schedule wise.

    BTW, what do people make of this?

    You know what? Ignore me. I'm in the middle of quitting smoking this weekend. Reading back, it didn't make much sense to me either. I will "Bah!" myself on that one.

    You know what?

    The only thing I cannot abide is the loss of backmatter in the trades. But I like to complain on the internet!

    yeah, amazon recomended that to me months ago. but they do that. it recommended revenge of the red lanterns probables 6 months ago and it still isnt out. they recommended iron man viva las vegas about a year ago, at first with a release date, then no release date, then it just looked like that powers listing.
