Comic Critics #140!

I like the tweets. As Marissa says, all the snark, none of the critical thought. I especially liked the Hush one.

And don’t let anyone tell you “too many panels”. They don’t seem to get that this isn’t merely a gag strip.

Everything in this strip was pretty spot-on.

Too many panels.

I don’t quite get the last panel.

Also, it was cool to check Twitter just now and see JoshCritic actually does have an account!

Can someone explain everything after Panel 2? I think I’m just too far out of the loop on this one.

the twitter works for josh allows him to be more of his self. even if he is already along with the now ex of Marrissa s friend not liking the green lantern film just over the first trailer.

Is Onslaught really coming back? Why would anyone want that?

I liked what I read of DIni’s Hush…

Can someone explain everything after Panel 2?

Joyce is crushing on Josh, and obviously this is foreshadowing them going on a date* to see Green Lantern, where Joyce’s ex-boyfriend does something stupid and dangerous.

*Josh, of course, will have no idea that it’s a date until sometime after it happens. He might realize it by 2012.

Yup Mary, Onslaught is coming back in February…. the mini is going to feature The Young Allies and Young Avengers centering on Rikki Barnes. I believe it is going to be written by Jeff Parker, so yeah…they got to me on my “Atlas/Avengers” craving….

Twitter: All the snark with no need for rationale… The strip nailed it perfectly….

I agree with Travis. Don’t listen to those who critique panel counts. I’ll take each and every panel given!

Yay, someone’s got my back about the “too many panels” stuff. Thanx, Van GoghX! (Is your mutant power the ability to paint with a disembodied ear?)

Wow, the comments are appearing in a different order or something. Weird.

Stealthwise, I liked what Dini did with Hush, but I like Josh’s comment too. I just hope I can laugh at the strip when they eviscerate the things I love.

This could have done with three less panels or two and a half more, but the current count is definitely wrong.

If you change “Paul Dini” to “Brian Michael Bendis” and change “Hush” to “Red Hulk,” that tweet totally still works.

Wait…Twitter specializes in 140-character messages, this is Comic Critics #140…I just realized, the 140 thing is intentional isn’t it? (I can be so slow at times)

It actually started as a coincidence, but once I noticed the “140” connection, I titled the strip after it. :)

After checking out the Green Lantern movie trailer, I can understand why Joyce’s ex is so upset. I’m not a GL fan, but even I know that Hal does not have the same personality as Johnny Storm!
