I'll pour over midtown's list a little more but until then here's what I've narrowed it down to:

ultimatum #5 - Drive for the most reviews, even if its just Jeph Loeb bashing.

citizen rex #1 - intersting concept.

Justice Society of America #29 - New writers, with a great resume, I stopped reading JSA a while a go but this might be worth checking out.

Holy fuck, it's almost 2am. :shock:

I have to be at work in 5 hours. :(

I just wrote multiple rambling messes that I almost posted as reviews. I probably should have just given up and waited until the weekend. :?

I can't believe you aren't considering:

The art looks amazing! Is that a Frank Quitely cover?

As a confirmed American hipster (as evidenced by my love of the comic book series Phonogram), I am contractually obligated to watch Soccer at least a dozen times per year (or to at least claim that I did). If that means that I lose cred with grunge/hippie hybrids like yourself, so be it.

That's actually what Frank Quietley's art looks like when he does a full issue in 36 hours.

Seriously, that company must have started working on that book when the King of Pedo was still in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

Kieran got a letter printed and the Review Group is mentioned (and Yoni's review mocked) in Phonogram #4.

Awesome! Can't wait to see it next week when my BOC arrives.

Should we be expecting a flood of all 2,000+ Phonogram readers stopping by to mock Mr. Smashley? :twisted:

The thread currently has 1,048 views which is pretty standard. We need to check it again in about a week to see how many people looked at it. 8)

This was brilliant, hilarious and sad in equal measure, and there were 2 truly bravura sequences in the book. Jason Aaron is a perfect fit for the Kung-Fu milieu, and this was a perfect complement to Iron Fist.

The back-up story was damn good too, a more personal Iron Fist story.

Review tomorrow, or maybe Sunday.
