Pretty sweet art work! heh, nice review!

Another thing that glows red: Red Lava Lamp!

Am I the only one who immediately thought of a parasect when bug dude was mentioned? Yeah, probably.

It's scientifically proven that if you paint stuff red...it will go faster!

Now we get comic book schills, too? I can't think of one video-game comic book option that was any good. This is just more merchandising schlock, I don't care what color the space station is.

After working at a comic book store for 4 months, I realized that there are plenty of "awesome" comics out there but very very few with any decent of a story. Just because stuff goes boom real nice doesn't mean it's a good comic. Boobs on the other hand...

...also don't mean the comic's any good.

Although I criticized your previous reviews, I definitely liked this one because you went completely over the top. Away with the conventional thinking and making your own style, job well done!

Awesome is...

I've never really cared for country-themed superheroes. Captain America, Captain Canuck, the other Canadian guy, the other American guy, the British guy... patriotism is all well and good but I'd rather read a comic about someone else.

1602 does sound like a good idea though.

I share that sentiment, I don't really like Captain America, or the Red Guardian or Captain Britain. I think the 1602 series was the only one where I was pleasantly surprised by his appearance. And the idea of a Native American Captain America was just brilliant.

If you want to explore the series then I can recommend you the original 1602 series and the 1602: Fantastick Four follow-up. There's also a 1602: New World that focuses on Spider-Man and Hulk but it was too brainlessly action-packed for me, and that comes from a Hulk fan.

Thanks for the recommendations but I have no money right now and, at the end of the day, I'm not even a big fan of comics or graphic novels. I know enough about them to competently run a comic book store on weekends but I don't really care about them. I'm more of a movie guy (which only furthers my dislike of comics since there are very few good movie adaptations of them. I know it's not the comic's fault but they suffer for it nonetheless).
