Review Group Week 198 - IMAGE UNITED #1

As someone who hasn't read a jam book since the Madman/Jam crossover, I can only imagine the insanity the art in this comic is going to bring. Plus, Liefeld! :twisted:

Image United #1
as selected by amlah6[/center]
story ROBERT KIRKMAN
art ERIK LARSEN, ROB LIEFELD, TODD McFARLANE, WHILCE PORTACIO, MARC SILVESTRI & JIM VALENTINO

THE CROSSOVER EVENT OF THE CENTURY IS HERE! The heroes of the Image Universe are united in order to fight the greatest threat the world as ever faced! You can’t miss this historic event as the original Image Founders draw all the characters they made history with. Each page is an amazing jam piece – it’s a story told in a way never before attempted in comics!

Jonah Hex #50
as selected by young neil[/center]
Written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray
Art by Darwyn Cooke

Darwyn Cooke illustrates a double-sized anniversary issue as we hit #50! Jonah Hex discovers a secret being kept by Tallulah Black that could change everything Hex is about. But happiness has no place in the life of Jonah Hex, so what kind of tragedy awaits our disfigured gunslinger?

DC Universe | 48pg. | Color | $3.99 US

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 Spreadsheet 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. (If you're seriously MIA, I'll probably put the poll up sooner) To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays.

This is an interesting book to review, because I think a lot of the focus here will be on the art, which is the most distinctive aspect of the story, normally we're all writing-oriented, but Kirkman's story here isn't really the big deal, it's whether all these different artists can mesh.

I'm not expecting much from Kirkman on this. I just can't imagine anything where you can put all these characters together and make something awesome out of it, especially not in one issue.

It sounds like it's something that he's excited about working on so who knows how it'll turn out.

He did it in Invincible #60, who knows.

Isn't the main villain 'Dark Spawn'? I don't know what that is.

Invincible 60 was not a good comic book and the only ego he had to deal with there was his own. Hopefully he learned from it and this will be better as a result.

Al Simmons isn't Spawn?

Huh.

I think the only characters in this I actually know anything about are Youngblood and Shadowhawk.
