Holy crap, today has started out awesome. Some jerkhole decided he was going to threaten to jump off an overpass so that shut down Lake Hefner Parkway and made me 20 minutes late. Dude didn't even jump. Jerk!
So I read some comics last night, super lame. ZOMG how pitifully did the Millar/Hitch FF end?! Such a disappointment, I was enjoying the run but it all fell apart in those last two issues. Speaking of disappointment, Kathy Immonen's Runaways hasn't been so great. Terry Moore's run may not have been the best thing ever, but at least it was fun!

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.
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.
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.
