Titens Says:
Fantastic Four #244 (v1) : I really don't get how this issue has a 4 stars rating. There's no action at all (which is fine), and the plot is basically "Reed's decides to save Galactus life even knowing that at some point he'll kill billions, and after doing that he sends Galactus in a search for planets that are perfect for him (a feat Galactus with his far more advanced technology couldn't achieve, yet he does in 10 minutes in a destroyed building), and when the problem arrises that he doesn0t have enough energy for the travel, Franky out of the blue proposes to become the new Herald, even if this wouldn't help the energy problem at all since he already knew where to go, and in fact would cost him even more energy. At this point, Galactus is convinced by Franky's motivation, which is not even explained in the issue, to be perfect and so he makes her his Herald, and departs Earth acting like best friends of the people he just tried to eat".

Seriously, this is as bad as it gets. What's next, Reed defending Thanos death crusade since love is his read motivation?

This is a 2 stars issue that shows again that no matter how bad it is, Galactus always seems to get 4 every time he appears.

Fantastic Four #243 (v1) : And it was going so well up to that last pannel. I'll still give it the 4 stars it deserves, because it was a good issue, but now I have the strange feeling of hating an issue that I really liked.

And in my mind it helps thinking that the real reason Reeds chose to save him was only so that FF could keep getting easy four stars.

Titens Says:
Fantastic Four #240 (v1) : I have to agree, this was a bad issue... more annoying than bad I guess. On one side, it's pretty much entertaining and has a fast pace, which keeps it being easy to read, which is the only reason I'm giving this 3 stars I guess. On the other hand,it tries to do so many things (the war, maximus death, pietro's son, the plague, the kidnapping of Medusa, the exodus, and more) and fails, hard, at each one of them. I could start pointing out every problem, every thing wrong with this issue, but the list would be extremely long and pointless. But Byrne so far has been a totally average writer so far (and the average so far in the order is pretty bad).

Russ Says:
Werewolf by Night #14 (v1) : This one did end up better than I thought it would, given the villain and the overall plot. Taboo wanted his son to live by transplanting some guy's mind into his son's body? I kind of want to think that's like saying the ugly sweater I got at Christmas was okay because it came in a cool box.

I was also a little surprised at the ending. The feud between Jack and his step-father/uncle was a plot point they actually could've kept going for awhile, but honestly I'm glad it was resolved. It's the first sign of overall plot advancement in this title in quite awhile.

3 stars. Kind of feels like a new beginning, and the first monster-crossover is on the horizon; it's got me intrigued.

Russ Says:
Werewolf by Night #13 (v1) : Man, they've really ramped up the sex and innuendo in this title the past few issues. The scene with Jack, Sam and Clary doea allude to the notion that Clary's acting job is in a porn film. The CCA still lets this go? And of course, that little honey Topaz. Whew, I think she's cast a spell on me!

Some misdirection on the cover, though. (Surprised? Not me) It hints that Taboo is the name of the monster, when it's actually the name of the sorcerer. And he claims he's the last of a dying breed? Excuse me, Taboo, but some guy named Doctor Strange would like to have a word with you.

2 stars, though that's quite a cliffhanger they set up.

Why is this fight so honorable? Picking a fight over who gets to cross a bridge first (which neither of them get to do after Hercules destroys it) is something that a stereotypical drunk would do.

Despite the lack of any plot that makes sense, it was a good fight.

JonahBlack Says:
X-Men #45a (v1) : This issue is emblematic of my x-perience (sorry) with X-Men thus far in the order. There's a lot to like in this issue, concept- and plot-wise, but it's outweighed by inconsistencies (how does Cyclops's power work? Does it cut, or melt, or is it force? How does he rest it if it's always on?), dialogue problems (Nobody tells Cyclops to stop!) and very uneven art (quicksilver is posed like Toad in a few places).

The end result is that I just don't *enjoy* reading it.

CrazyforRAMU Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #115 (v1) : I am getting fed up with Mr. Conway's new party trick: Shoving a dangling plot thread in the reader's face at the end of his story like it's some kind of resolution. He did it with the New Gods in Thor #203, and now here it is in Spidey.

"Hammerhead escapes with a mysterious something and gloats about how it'll turn Ock into his willing partner next time around! Tune in 15 issues from now when we finally maybe pay this off!"

I know dangling plot threads are a fixture of comics, or maybe of any ongoing long-term narrative. I know they're not bad in and of themselves. But Mr. Conway is using them like they can satisfy the reader's need for closure all by themselves. They can't, and they make these stories hugely disappointing.

Spidey's Ulcer turning into a potent villain in its own right is pretty disappointing, too. Is this gonna go away soon or should we go ahead and make it its own "character appearance" entry under villains?

Skull the Slayer #8 : This was pretty terrible overall. It mostly didn't make sense and had no cohesion. They were originally 222 million years in the past. Then they fell down to farther ahead in time, but it still said 222 million years. The story of why they're chasing Scilly makes no sense. It was disjointed and inexplicably confusing. Bye bye.

Tales to Astonish #87a (v1) : Oh a character limit lovely.

I basically said that the first six issues of Hulk were bad with lame lame lame villains, Hank and Jan were a guilty pleasure. Anthology titles got 0 stars and Solo Torch and Thing got negative five stars.

StrictSnow Says:
Tales to Astonish #87a (v1) : Here we are. #500 in the order, unless some more weird anthology titles are added, and the end of a plodding Namor arc. Hopefully they go somewhere with him next.

The round-up:
So, because I'm sure someone totally asked for this, I'm going to give a rough overview of my favorites in the order so far. I figure I'll do this every hundred issues or so from now on. I'll do the past 500 for now because this the first time.

***** Spider-Man and Fantastic Four. Spider-Man came out swinging and hasn't stopped yet, while Fantastic Four overcame a fairly rough start to become the series that I'm looking forward to most, besides Spidey.

**** Thor and X-Men. Though X-Men hasn't been good for the past few issues, the story around the Juggernaut arc or near it was really good. Thor was kinda dumb at first but it's definitely gone pretty far, and has a lot more potential now that we're seeing Asgard more and more

*** Avengers, Iron Man, Hulk (Tales to Astonish), Nick Fury, and Captain America. All of these books have had some really really dumb issues (That issue where Tony's cousin makes him see aliens(?), post-Hydra-pre-secret-empire Nick Fury, WWII recaps) But they've also had some really friggin awesome issues (Cosmic Cube, battle against Titanium Man, fight against Hydra, Cap being broody, Hulk being misunderstood and not just a dumb brute).

** Namor, Daredevil. Namor and Daredevil both happen to feature the worst soap opera love dumbness in the order thus far, but have had some fairly decent issues to balance it out. Daredevil is more just spurts of greatness (Spider-Man issue(s) and the first issue, for example) surrounded by mediocrity, while Namor rarely rises above C level.

*Ant/Giant Man and the Wasp, The Incredible Hulk (v1). Hank is a huge whiny man baby and Janet is thisty af. Despite that I

Tales to Astonish #85a (v1) : I am so sad Number One does not show up anymore. I do so love an absolutely inept villain. One that's treated as such, that is, like in this how Namor just kind of brushes his little ear chips off. Torch Solo stories, where dudes I could probably beat up are giving the Human friggin Torch and The Everlovin' Thing lots of trouble? No thanks.

jwerth Says:
Master of Kung Fu #76 : Seems to me that the message in this story is actually the opposite. If Shang Chi wasn't so well-prepared for war - if he wasn't such an incredible fighter - then he wouldn't have been recruited by MI-6, wouldn't have friends who are always in danger or most of the enemies he has, wouldn't be such a target for bad guys to "prove themselves" against. Blackjack wouldn't have asked for his help at this end of this story if he didn't know that Shang Chi would be able to do the job. The message of this story seems to be: if you create weapons, they're going to get used.

Fantastic Four #14 (v1) : The sexism is really quite ridiculous at this point, even for the 60s. That combined with the Puppet Master's plan making zero sense means it gets a low rating.

That said, this gets an extra star just for Thing. From arguing with parking attendants to making pithy comments about Hamlet, the Thing is really the MVP of this issue.

Avengers #119 (v1) : Not thrilled with the return of the Collector, although his MO is at least a little interesting. Still, I agree that his appearance here doesn't seem consistent with his prior (and subsequent) appearances. And the way Mantis took care of him makes me wonder how and why he's given the Avengers so many fits in the past.

Also, it strikes me that the Collector wouldn't necessarily care about Rutland in order to set a trap for the Avengers. To do so outside where the group normally operates is really presumptuous for an alien.

And yeah, having Loki stay just outside Rutland made me laugh. I didn't realize the Avengers hated Tom Fagan so much!

Journey into Mystery #92 (v1) : This is a weird one. I normally like the Loki stories, but this one pushed me to the brink.

First, it takes 8 pages (out of only 13) for the main plot to start. The first part is just random happenings in the life of Thor, including the repeat "threaten the doc to treat the criminal" plot. Then, the way Thor gets to Asgard and what happens there just seems...random. There's no real rhyme or reason. It felt like somebody wanted to see, say, purple dragons, and so there are purple dragons.

2/5. Would've been higher if we had more time on Asgard or a more cohesive plot by Loki (who is still the best part of the Thor stories).

Also: more Heimdall.

Seriously, literally nothing happened in this issue except for a little gratuitous violence and destruction - not that I'm necessarily opposed to that, but Graviton's ploy on "nothing" and "No-Thing" loses a star.

What's really perplexing is that Engelhart's Silver Surfer has been consistently superb.

Daredevil #262 (v1) : I Guess Karen's thought process in all this was that it would be just dandy to take 2 kids out into a heat wave where everyone was going crazy, still get on the train after the mishap with the doors, and travel all the way to the precinct station just for a 2-minute conversation with a detective, then complain that the police officer is dealing with city-wide weirdness on an unprecedented scale (even for the MU) - just to try and compel the police to continue searching for Daredevil? This right here is why I'm skipping so many DD issues lately.

Same thing is going on in Spider-Man. Great art, but short on the writing.

And, why does it feel like the last page of every Nocenti issue I've read so far is just stopping cold? Not even any preview boxes, it just...ends.

Amazing Spider-Man #311 (v1) : Peter's a bit overwrought in his mourning for the person he couldn't save. It could be a result of the psychic manipulation that's happening because of the Inferno scenario but still, this isn't the first person he's been unable to save, and who could have expected a building to spring to life? One thing this issue does clear up, is that the growing situation in New York does develop over a number of days, which makes the jaunts to other stories since Inferno started in the pages of X-Terminators more understandable.

The thing about Michelinie's run is that, he is getting better and McFarlane's art is fantastic but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Yes, there is the "soap opera" development with Peter going back to college and whatnot but each of the villains are just dropped in to have Spidey have an adventure. No forward narrative movement, nothing building towards something bigger. Much of it is skipable, which I have been doing in spite of McFarlane's art.

After reading the end, I take that back, Michelinie's writing is not improving. *sigh* Too bad TM couldn't have been assigned a better writer for his time on Spidey.

New Mutants Summer Special #1 : I'm usually a fan of Nocenti's blunt political inserts, but running straight at exposition of McLuhan and Chomsky ideas with the barest smidge of visual metaphor is a little too much. It's like reading the Phantom Tollbooth without the whimsy of Feiffer and Juster, because the topic's much more serious. The only people I've seen pull off this kind of political allegory well are Alan Moore and Grant Morrison, and even their stuff is full of indulgent muck, layers of dense symbolic thousand-layer-cake, to keep it from being too flat. Nocenti's attempt is unfortunately more like a single undercooked hotcake.

There's no logical progression, no structure; instead, it's just 20 pages of Thor walloping demons, lost souls, friends, and finally Mephisto himself. A mega yawner.

Iron Man #1b (v1) : Origin in only 3 pages....did not work for me at all...sorry, 1* only..
It showed only WHAT happenend, and not any reasoning behind it or any emotions with that

Uncanny X-Men #236 (v1) : So this is where The X-Tinction Agenda all started! Never had a chance to read all the lead-up to that before. I like how it's tied in with the Inferno storyline.

Uncanny X-Men #235 (v1) : Didn't we last see Maddy lying in a pool of blood? Now she's piloting a plane that crashes. This is the one aspect I never did warm up to about Claremont's writing was jumping far ahead after a cliffhanger. I understand it's a valid writing device but it's rather irksome.
