    Hey Linkara!
    Just wanted to say that I loved your USA review. You review subject matter that I haven't seen anybody really tear apart, and you do it beautifully.
    I'm really excited that you got accepted onto thatguy's site, and look forward to all of your new reviews and videos.

    Peace out,

    I'm pretty sure it lasted a few more issues than this one, but damn it'd be funny if it did. :D

    They're uploading my videos a little slowly, so I do apologize to everyone if my voice quality isn't what it should be - this was actually the second video I made (Top 15 was the fourth, US-1 the seventh and most recent [though as I write this I'm uploading a new one]) and at the time suffering from a cold.

    I am so glad that you are now a part of the site, Linkara! I absolutely loved your last videos and I loved this one! It's great to see Doug adding new people to his site because variety is always welcome, and your brand of variety is every bit as entertaining as his! Great work man! I can't wait for your next videos. :D

    As always, a great review.

    And I love how you hate every bit of this comic, but can't bring yourself to destroy it =P
    It has become a part of you!

    You want to know the most painful part of this?

    This STILL isn't the worst comic book I've ever read (I'm saving that one for Sweeps).

    Was there anything good from the 90's? I am an X-men fan
    but damn I have set through and red most of the Onslaught epic.
    It was a dark time for marvel and the industry as a whole. DARK
    TIMES...Now what song was that during your Break Down?

    Oh my, yes, though most of it was in the latter half. For all the crap that gets tossed at the Clone Saga, it started off really well and entertaining. 1999 also brought about Devin Grayson's Titans series and Grant Morrison's JLA run.

    Anything that has fanboys promoting the comic will always end in epic meltdown...

    It stuns me that people loved (and in some cases CONTINUE to love) this sort of crap...D: Please feel better!

    Also, was that a YuGiOh: TAS joke I heard? (the America/Canada one)

    When I first read the title of this video, I immediately thought that you were somehow making this video about the 1996 comic tie-in for the Doom PC game. I've read some bad comics, but don't think I've ever read any comic like Doom.

    It was literially SO retarded, that it (to paraphrase SpoonyOne) reached infinity, looped back on itself and became something mind-blowing awesome again.

    I've learned so much about obscure comics that I had no idea existed. Thanks for making these...I love gathering useless knowledge. :D

    ...really, it's not a flame or anything. I really DO love gathering random information.

    Hey, it's no problem, Xatike. I've enjoyed the Angry Video Game Nerd for the knowledge he brings me about obscur games and consoles I never knew existed.
  • DakotaCruz  - Doom's IV
    Back in my younger, stupider days when I bought up every comic in site, not wanting to miss out like I did when Image put out their first round o titles, such as spawny guy, youngblood, shadowhawk & the others, I actually bought Doom's IV #1...and OMG sucked.
    Great Video

    I don't think I've ever heard of Doom's IV! I mean...wow that is bad. That was pretty bad. Still, welcome officially to the site. Your vids are wicked good and I look forward to more from a fellow comic fan. If you ever do Capwolf, let me know. That should be FUNNY!

    Captain America + Werewolf= Hahahahaha.

    Ouch, that comic truly sucked. Then again it seemed little better than US-1 that you reviewed in your previous video. Then again thats not much said.

    1st time watching your vids.
    Loved it! Looking forward to more in the future!
    Welcome to the site as well!

    Now, now, live and let live! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion! If kids of the 90s liked that hyperstylistic, violent art and jingoistic, male-dominated storytelling and shallow, one-note characterization, what harm would it lead to? :)

    I think that might have possibly been a hidden insult :p

    That was amazing. I've seen some comics that suck, but this one really seems to be one of the worst.
    I'm still crying from laughter after you read the letters column.

    Did these people just make up all the comments in the fan pages, or are the fans just as bland and easily impressed as the artiest and writers.
  • palindration
    Mike picks some awesome talent!

    I swear, the whole review was just... wow.

    Bravo, and welcome!
  • Lupine
    I can't say how glad I am that you'll now be on the site full-time. This review was pretty much awesome- can't wait to see more. There's no end to the masses of bad comics produced...

    (Capwolf? Man, I have got to see that. Anything with werewolves is automatically full of win.)

    Well the art isn't as bad as some comics I've seen... though I think the only well-drawn character was the girl... whoever the hell she was...

    I've never been a western-comics fan, though. I like the Japanese comics (manga) a hell of a lot more. Just so much more appealing. And even the most idiotic ideas make more sense than this thing did o_O

    Another fantastic video. Though, the ending was a bit, too...Nostalgia Critic-esque.
    I suppose to every man lies his own, unique voice: Hopefully soon you'll find yours ;)

    Hi there, Linkara!

    Never heard of the comic (of course; there's not that kind of comic-culture over here at Germany...well, not amongst people of my age, it appears) but laughed my heart out! Great that you're part of this site now. Keep them reviews going!
