Re: Favorite Comic Books
I had a few issues with Guardians (such as inconsistency in certain characters' power levels, the implausible romantic connection between Peter Quill and Gamora, and a couple story holes) but but not enough to prevent me from finding it entertaining. Which it is, so long as you don't look too closely at it.
And in case anyone's thinking "Oh, that Lon, nothing ever satisfies him," keep in mind that as encyclopedic as I am when it comes to movies, I've even more encyclopedic when it comes to comic books (and music, but that's not what this discussion is about ). I've got over thirty years of comics reading (not to mention writing and drawing my own), I can quote entire entries from The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition and DC's "Who's Who?", can tell you exactly what incident happened in which issue of which title and can pinppoint incidents in no less than four other comic companies' canons. So you can expect me to be VERY analytical of super hero movies, and when they get something wrong, me being the snobby prick that I am, you can count on me saying something about it.
Incidentally, this wasn't a brag. I literally have so empty a life that I have time to sit and obsess over such trivial details as these.
