As far as this being “divisive”, I’m a person that doesn’t hate it, but I just don’t get it. It’s interesting I guess but it’s just too weird for me. It’s like it’s a kind of parody of both properties, but it’s also written in a Jack Kirby New Gods style. I’d prefer a straight forward story of the two groups meeting, but I suppose that’s already been done.
Well that certainly is an easy pass. Was there a contest to see how bad you could make a comic that I missed? Rob Liefeld alternate cover? That might actually be a tiny step up, lol.
