My Welcome to Cates: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2019110714465798&layout=thread

My suggestion on how Cates can improve: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2020020718540119&layout=thread


Issue #3 Bullet-Point Review: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2020021214221079&search=review&layout=thread

(Funny, LGDB participates in these threads but mysteriously doesn't remember substantive critiques. HUH).

Issue #4 Bullet-Point Review: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2020031118034415&layout=thread

Issue #5 Break-Down (trying my hardest to like Cates' stories): https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2020062416072299&search=Thor+%235&layout=thread

Issue #6 Break down: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2020081917444969&layout=thread

Issue #7 Break down: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=thor-2020091707283360&search=Thor+%237&layout=thread

And, oh look, me having the exact same discussion with Mod-Blake as we're having now, despite Mod-Blake being present throughout my entire substantive-critiquing history on these forums: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?rpy=thor-2021041711375726&layout=thread

Decompressed - check
Deconstructed - check
Illogical Plot Holes - check
180 degree characterization - check
Actual Heroism in short supply - check
Rubbish Fights - check

The only thing Cates has done well is Thor's power showing - which got the battleboards (are they even still a thing? ) fanboys on his side.

In all other respects he is Aaron-lite with none of that writers shock/mystery; snake-oil salesman expertise.

Your little spat with LGDB is amusing though; makes me think of two antifa supporters arguing; where one is trying to convince the other Portland is still a great place to live.




You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
