And it's another "great" review at!

This time, they take some shots at Avengers: The Initiative # 1 in their Sunday Slugfest, and even though I liked the first issue, I will admit, there are a few interesting points made here.

But out of the four reviews done, it's gotta be Thom Young's assessment of the protestor's chant that seals this up as honest to goodness SBCB review.

Thom writes...

"Anti-Initiative protestors outside Initiative Headquarters in Stamford Connecticut have problems getting the proper rhythm to their protest chant:

One, two, three, four.

Not another Civil War.

Five, six, seven, eight.

Take your base out of our state.

Despite some guy who looks like Carrot Top and who is called Slapstick proclaiming, “It’s got a beat and you can dance to it,” the rhythm of this protest chant is a mess. Granted, the first and third lines are two sets of spondees, and the second and fourth lines each have seven syllables.

However, the second line has down beats on the odd-numbered syllables and up beats on the even-numbered syllables while the fourth line is a confusion of heavy and light syllables with no discernable rhythm.

In fact, there is a variety of ways that the fourth line can be scanned."

Ummm... anyway, here's the link!

If you look through the forums, that guy Thom Young's as cool as he sounds.
