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.

Uncanny X-Men #241 (v1) : I love payoff issues like this where all the threads comne together. Also digging the slow demonic turns for Wolvie et. al.

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).

Kitty Pryde and Wolverine #6 : The final fight was f-ing epic! Freaking girl power between Yukio, Mariko and Shadowcat. And seeing Berzerker Wolvie was badass!

Kitty Pryde and Wolverine #5 : And we finally have a Shadowcat. I never liked Sprite or Ariel. The last page was epic. To kinda sorta quote Europe... "It's the final showdown!"

Aaaand I got that song stuck in your head.

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.

Darkhawk #16 : Peristrike force sounds like a measurement of gastrointestinal system function.

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.

Kitty Pryde and Wolverine #3 : 4th star for the last page. Otherwise, I agree that this is just like DD in Japan, and Wolverine in Japan.

Marvel Graphic Novel #5 : Several great Magneto scenes in this. Loved seeing him throw down on the Purifiers!

GruvTrain Says:
Journey into Mystery #1 Annual : Why is Loki going with Thor to Jotunheim? Isn't he in some sort of Asgardian prison?

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.

X-Men #23 (v1) : Thank goodness Roy Thomas' writing improved before he took over my beloved Avengers. These past few issues have been pretty weak.

Uncanny X-Men #188 (v1) : Black people are human, and bleed the same color everyone else does, but it doesn't stop people from discriminating against them. I can totally see the mutant hysteria here not being some fake, over-pushed plot. It's very real.

Peter Parker, The Spectacular... : No one has an answer why the Answer appears to be an answer to the question that needs answering about who the worst spider-man villain is that answers to another villain whose only answer is to decry Spider-Man's answering existence. I hope that's helps, @Geeky.

Amazing Spider-Man #258 (v1) : The current run in the order has been phenomenal! So much going on with this issue... looks like MJ is finally going to hook up with Parker finally, the symbiote looks chilling at the end, and the parts with the Fantastic Four are funny. Oh yeah, and Hobgoblin doing his thing, can't forget that. Damn good issue.

Captain America #306 (v1) : This is how all world leaders should speak.
"Sup America"
"Yo Britain. How's it going"
"HAVE you seen Canada"
"He was with France yesterday"
"Lets grab Germany and get a beer"

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.

Captain America #163 (v1) : The villains weren't as bad as I was expecting, but given how very little I have missed Cobra, I'd say the bar wasn't set very high.

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 #86a (v1) : Please don't tell me we're making headway on Namor's story. I thought he was just gonna wander NYC until 2012 AD.
