    New York Five is over-rated pandering crap that comic nerds can’t see through. It hardly passes the Bletchel test and when it does the content is inane and cliched. Anyone can crap out this awful coming of age college story and draw a bunch of attractive girls to act it out.

    This is like people thinking that suicide girls is actually a kind of cerebral pornography when it is just tattoo’d girls with large breasts (aka normal pornography). Comic nerds need to ask for more. Not this pandering tripe.

    I am a big fan of New York 4 and 5.  Brian Wood writes excellent female characters with real depth.  New York City (where I also live) really comes alive in the books, and the story line has real interpersonal depth.  I do not read a lot of comics, so I am not sure why comic nerds should hate this book, but I liked it a lot.
