Otaku USA has a great article on how to review manga titles the correct way.


This could really catch on, and I’m thinking to help the movement, Major Spoilers should set up our own comic book tasting marathons. Of course we’d turn it into a drinking game with the following rules:

Take a drink when:

  • Batman is a dick
  • Superman strikes a pose to instill fear in the enemy
  • Wolverine appears in a title
  • someone in the room shouts “I’m not a Skrull, I swear!”
  • there is a reference to Tom Welling or Tom Welling Prime
  • someone complains that we are spoiling everything by giving away “too much”
  • Matthew tries to push Legion of Super-Heroes issues off on unsuspecting attendees
  • someone complains that the new writer isn’t as good as the old writer
  • someone exclaims the new writer is way better than the old writer
  • someone begins to get a little too excited about Power Girl’s costume
  • Spider-Man complains about how terrible his life has become
  • Aunt May nearly dies, but recovers at the last minute
  • Holly Robinson appears (probably a result of too many drinks)

Feel free to add your own to the list.

    A recovering alcoholic would not be able to view this site.

    Or any other comics related site.
