Review Group Week 159: RUNAWAYS #7

Postby ****** » Wed Feb 25, 2009 9:58 am

[center]Image[/center]
Welcome to the mostly the same Review Group in our first ever week here at The Outhouse!

If you're not familiar with the Review Group, we are a group of posters who like to get together each week and share our sweet, sweet love of comics. We love to have as many people participating as possible, so please feel free to jump right in and join the conversation.

Details of how the group operates will be covered later in this post, this section of the thread is reserved for the ramblings of the current group leader... me! The group leader hasn't always been me of course, and this week is a special week for the group - not just because of the big move, but also because it's Sire's last week as leader as he prepares for his life of crime... errr, politics. So let's all be sure to wish Sire well in his future endeavors and pray that he is successful in his run for Minneapolis City Council so that he doesn't come back here and want to run the group again. :D

Runaways #7
as selected by Sire v 2.0[/center]Story by Terry Moore
Art by Takeshi Miyazawa
Colors by Christina Strain

The spookiest Runaways tale ever starts here! The Val Rhymin subplot has been brewing since issue one and peeks here! Chase’s boss is not what he seems! Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise, Echo) welcomes former RUNAWAYS artist Takeshi Miyazawa aboard for this creepy tale of magic and mayhem!

Superman: World of New Krypton #1
as selected by Mr. Batman[/center]
Written by James Robinson and Greg Rucka
Art by Pete Woods
Cover by Gary Frank
Variant cover by Ladrönn

Following the events of the "New Krypton" crossover, the Man of Steel has had to embrace his past to ensure humanity's future. And while a devastating armed conflict with Earth may have been averted, keeping the peace will be Superman's greatest challenge yet.


Image
If you would like to join the group it's easy. Just post a review and I'll add you to the member's list. As long as you stay active, eventually it will be your turn to make a pick.

With $4 comics becoming the norm, the economy being what it is and the growing popularity of mail order services the Review Group recognizes that it's becoming harder and harder to commit to participating each and every week. As long as you can post one review per calendar month you will stay in the member's list. It doesn't matter if you post your review the week of it's release or if you post it later. Going forward, there is no such thing as a "late" review.

The only request I make with the new format is that if you don't plan on posting a review or if you're going to be posting late is that you drop a note in the thread so that I can keep track of who is active and who isn't. The Spreadshee of Doom is thorough, but it can't read your mind.


Image
Comics are to be scored on a scale from 1-10. 1 being suck, 10 being a damn good comic. Beyond that, there's no right or wrong.

Image
If it's your week, you must announce your selection by 5pm EST the day Diamond releases it's shipping list. If you do not announce your pick at that time, I will add a poll to the thread that will remain open until 12pm EST so that the group can make the selection for that week. To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays.

Each Tuesday I will putting together all of our reviews and we will have our very own article on the front page of The Outhouse! If you would like for your review to be included, please try to have it posted by the end of day on Monday.

I'm not 100% sure of how I'm going to format it yet, but if for any reason you would prefer that your review not be included please let me know.

I think this is going to be a great addition to the awesomeness of the Review Group. Thanks to Misac for suggesting it.

I totally dropped Runaways after issue #6 -- it just doesn't compare to BKV's run.

Active and returning members should probably go ahead and read through the whole OP, I changed up some of the rules in an effort to make it easier for more people to participate and also make sure you read the Front Page Content section as that's something totally new. 8)

If you hadn't read Rucka's run on Checkmate that book didn't make a lick of sense... which made it fit right in with the rest of Final Crisis. :P

You're making it too easy on these fools.

That's really not all that different from how it's been for a while. As long as someone has said they're taking a pass on a book it hasn't counted as a missed week in forever. I'm just being more upfront about it so that people who aren't in a shop every week can still feel like they can participate.

This also opens it up for people who use mail order to be able to wait for their box to post a review instead of feeling like they have to double dip.

It's 11kb. :x

I'll shrink it a bit when I go back to re-match the background since apparently the OP's are a bit darker than the other posts. :oops:

I tried a couple of different ways, but couldn't get it to work.
