How we review comic books:
5.0 = A near-perfect comic; one of the year’s best. You’ll remember this issue for a long time.
4.0-4.9 = An excellent book that’s well worth your money. Has memorable moments, stunning art, and shows a real understanding of how comics work.
3.0-3.9 = A pretty good, middle-of-the-road comic. Maybe not worth your money unless you’re a big fan of the series/character.
2.0-2.9 = Meh, it’s fine. Below average. Not terrible, but ultimately forgettable.
1.0-1.9 = It’s bad. Maybe it has one or two redeeming qualities, but the bad very much outweighs the good. It’s not worth your time, let alone your money.
0.0-0.9 = A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad comic. Not worth your time, let alone your money. If this is your score, you probably shouldn’t bother reviewing the book.
