I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
He's still not at Roberts level, or hasn't reached the heights of Barber or Scott at their best, but he's winning me over. It's more tense, it's better, it's not all fucking Rubble - who still annoys the crap out of me*, and Barricade is alive again. Took a while to get there, but I'm glad I stuck out the first couple issues which I, quite frankly, hated after the MTMtE and LL runs. (And yes, RiD, OP, TAAO, and all the one shots and trilogies were pretty damn good too.)
Look, this hasn't reached five star level - not even at issue six, which I've read. (I'm still a month behind on reviews!) But it's getting better.
*look, if I want to see through anyone's eyes, it's not a baby OC, okay?
