    Our Sponsor: Isotope Comics (SF Bay area)



    What we do: This is a fanbased review group, open to everybody.

    As people post the reviews, I will add your name and score to a list in the main post and at the end of the week average the scores for an overall grade on the book. We grade on a scale of 0-10, the meanings of which roughly translate to:

    10 - Everything I want in a comic, an instant classic
    9 - Excellent, a nearly perfect read
    8 - Highly recommended but it has minor flaws
    7 - Very good, it does have some problems
    6 - Above average but has deep flaws
    5 - An average comic
    4 - Below average, the flaws outweigh the good
    3 - A disappointing comic
    2 - Forgettable, a waste of time
    1 - Stay away!! One of the worst comics I've read

    Anyone who participates is asked to please keep this scale in mind when giving a grade so that everyone is operating on the same system.

    THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO PARTICIPATE EVERY WEEK. Please join in as little or as much as you like week to week. If you are uncomfortable giving a grade then just join in the discussions and ask questions.
    Join the Prime-Punch revolution!

    Re: BB Review Group week 368 - Defenders #1 (Spoilers)

    A lot of set-up, well written set-up, but just set-up. Art was good, but it just felt slow to me, a bit like Justice League #1. Looking forward to the rest though.

    6.5/10

    Defenders was many things, but slow was definitely not one of them.

    It felt slow. I know it got the entire team together and sent them on their way, but it felt slow. It might have gotten a few things done, but it felt slow to me.

    I just read that back...

    It just felt slow.
