    Two Words, Holy Crap!!

    Lets start out with this, my own words an opinion 
    I honestly had no let me repeat no expectations for this event, i saw the title an the concept an thought it was meh. I went into this whole event with nothing but a curiosity for it. But i was so freaking wrong, i cannot begin to fathom what is going to happen.  
    Story-The things that happen in this issue, holy crap. I never ever EVER saw some of these things coming. I mean we were teased with images of what could happen. But never saw the ass whooping a big named character recieved in this issue, ever saw it coming. I forsee something big and horrible happening to our Flag Friend. I hope it doesnt happen cause it would destroy so many people connected to him, but i am floored by the event. To see the emotions immediately following it, if the next issue is what I think it will be i will cry or at least tear up. 
    I do wish i got to see more Juggy in this, i love his Fear God form whatever its called. I want to see where they go with him, and I hope the next issue will show more and tell more. The Tie-Ins coming soon will probably not have him, but what they will have is one of my favorite underrated villains kicking some ass...hopefully. Seeing Absorbing man as a host is just freaking awesome, and Titania omg lol. This event is for us readers who have been reading for many many years. Seeing the under dogs in action it gives us some hope that these characters are never forgotten, just not used unless they fit. And do they fit in this story. Give this story a 4 
    Art-I dont really enjoy the art of this issue, nor do I enjoy it in any of the other issues. Its...too pretty? I cant say how it is i just dont like it, ill admit its more than detailed. Especially in the fight scenes but for most part the only redeeming thing for the art is the transformed versions of those who lift the Hammers.  Give it a 3.5
    Overall-This is the big issue for the beginning of the event, the hype is being shown an its being glorified. So i hope it doesnt fail in the end, i love the story but I wish somethings were worked out a little bit. Plus ive become more of a art person as of late which I hate, and it comes out with this issue. But besides that I cannot wait for the coming issues, these stories are the reason I still stick onto Marvel. Loving every moment of this.

      Hype Itself 0

      Fear Itself begins to buckle under its own hype as the awaited moments of the third issue prove to be an unclear crisis and a cheap death. The supposed "shock ending to end all shock endings" turns out to be a moment many readers expected to come since before Fear Itself started and a moment rather painfully foreshadowed from the very first pear of the story.  It is beginning to be difficult to get a feel for what exactly the meat of Fear Itself's story is. We have characters behaving as if it i...

      Massive Spoilers Ahoy: Fear Itself on the Upswing 0

      It seems like last week we had a few problems with spoilers in posts. This week, I'm going to give you fair warning: there will be spoilers in this post. Big ones. Because take it from me: stuff happens in this issue.The GoodHoo boy. Bucky's dead. Or dying. Or in a coma. Out of action. Kaput. Seeing white. He's missing a (bionic) arm and has a big ol' hole in his chest.And I honestly didn't see it coming.While this might seem a bit weird to point out, I find it comforting that the comic industry...
