We have an issue about Groot that is all told in a style that is a big tip of the cat hat to Dr. Seuss, one of those ideas that is much harder to pull off than you might think.

No shit, Bendy. Like the whole damn three years that you've been struggling to give us even ONE decent plot line without aborting it as soon as it gets even remotely uncomfortable for you to write.

I hope Schiti will continue doing art for Marvel. He deserves a better book to draw that Benids' Guardians.

He said in an interview that he would do a graphic novel-sized final issue once this last arch is done with issue #18. So probably around May-April.

I know I just posted something about comic fans being negative in another thread, but I just got done with this one.

This is the worst comic I have ever read.

I cringed and tried to speed through as fast as I could.

I have read thousands of comics.

This is the worst comic I have ever read.

@jloneblackheart: I don't think it was quite the worst ever but I do agree with you to a point; this kind of 'cute' ideas are something you should only publish as a back-up not full size.

@sinikettu: I agree and I don't hate the idea and have always enjoyed a good heartwarming Groot tale, but Dr. Suess never shoe-horned words in like this just to make them rhyme. It was like I wrote it.

@jloneblackheart: I wonder what on Earth possessed Bendis to think he could do poems in the first place?

Indeed. With comics like this it's high time for Bendis to bail out from GOTG. I really hope that Duggan can salvage at least something from the midden heap Bendis has left in his wake.
