    Did you expect something better from the mind that brought us A New Hope, Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Return of the Sith?

    I actually love Phantom Menace. ;)

    If we're talking tropes, Rocky stays the optimist. You, Wyo, are probably a cross between this and this.

    In the interest of brevity, I'll just give you my top three reasons.

    1.) The art is atrocious. It's mostly made up of faces, and they all remind me of Greg Land. (That is the deepest insult in my arsenal.)



    2.) The dialogue is cringe-worthy. Witty banter between the droids should be a no-brainer, right? I literally closed the book and set it down when I got to this page:



    3.) The panel-by-panel storytelling is, at times, incomprehensible. If you can explain to me what's going on with this page, I salute you, because I just don't get it.

    That was an excellent article, I loved it.

    So far my two All-New Marvel NOW! must-haves are She-Hulk and Loki: Agent of Asgard. I literally know nothing about She-Hulk, but it just looks like it'll be cool. Plus I wanna expand out from the X-Books a little more.

    I just read Soule's interview with CBR about She-Hulk, and I'm digging it. (link) Sounds like it's gonna have a kind of Hawkeye/FF/Superior Foes feel.

    Makes me wanna look into Slott's run. I hear it's a great read.

    Is she always green or can she switch back and forth? Does she ever, like, lose control a la Bruce Banner?

    Also, I am genuinely concerned for her well-being in that cover. Changing clothes while holding a cup of hot coffee? That is DANGEROUS. Does she know how much spilling hot coffee on oneself hurts???

    I agree with everything else but what was wrong with a New Hope? New Hope in my opinion anyways is the best one out of all of them.

    THE IRONY.

    But what's wrong with A New Hope? It's the best out of the six, imo.

    So i watched the latest Agents of SHIELD, when did this turn into a dating show? No wonder the ratings keep slipping.

    Why would anyone approve of this draft by Whedon? Everyone wanted an AGENTS OF SHIELD tv series, not a show about some ahcker who has relationship issues.

    Extended preview to today's Captain America trailer:


    Woo!

    Huh? What are you on about? A New Hope is brilliant? Along with The Empire Strikes back it is by far and away one of the best 2 star wars films.

    Are we talking Revenge of the Sith or Return of the Jedi? Never heard of Return of the Sith. Anyway, I agree except for A New Hope and Revenge of the Sith. I really like both of them.

    Star Wars:
    1. The Empire Strikes Back
    2. A New Hope
    3. Revenge of the Sith
    4. Return of the Jedi
    5. Attack of the Clones
    6. The Phantom Menace

    No way. The best two are Empire and Jedi.

    Okay, now I HAVE to get Loki: Agent of Asgard.

    (BTW is it still called Asgardia, or...?)
