Review Group Week 202 - HELLBOY: THE BRIDE OF HELL

Postby ****** » Wed Dec 23, 2009 9:24 am

Everyone can put away their inner child, we're back to reviewing big boy comics this week. Happy Holidays and all that, but don't think that means you can skip this week, certainly not when we're finally doing a Hellboy book. :cool:

Hellboy: The Bride of Hell
as selected by Chris[/center]
Writer: Mike Mignola
Artist: Richard Corben

A year after their Eisner-nominated collaboration Hellboy: The Crooked Man, horror comics legends Corben and Mignola reunite!

A nineteen-year-old girl is kidnapped and Hellboy tracks her down to a remote clearing in France where she's about to be given to Asmodeus, in a strange tale of ghosts, demonic revenge, lost love, and King Solomon.


Image
[center]Image[/center]Diamond might be taking next week off, but the Review Group doesn't stop for anyone. Next week is Webcomics Week! Everyone gets to pick what they want to review. Either pick your favorite or try something new or both! It's up to you what you will be reviewing, you can pick a comic from the following list or you can venture out to the wilds of the internets and find something cool on your own.

Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:


Webcomics by current or former Review Group Members

New Comic Day (doombug)
Mice Templar: Games (Ryan the Iowan)

2009 Eisner Nominees for Best Digital Comic

Bodyworld
Finder
The Lady's Murder
Speak No Evil
Vs.

2009 Harvey Nominees for Best Online Comics Work

Black Cherry Bombshells
High Moon
Least I Could Do
The Night Owls
PVP

Other Webcomics

Angry Little Robot (Jamie Smart)
Bayou
Billy the Dunce
Dr. McNinja
FreakAngels (Warren Ellis)
Garfield Minus Garfield
Indestructible Universe
Let's Be Friends Again
Looking For Group
Mermaid Hostel
Penny Arcade
Planet Saturday
Shortpacked
Sin Titulo (Cameron Stewart)
Wondermark
XKCD
Year of the Rat

Wecomic Resources

Next-Door Neighbor
Shadowline (Image)
Zuda Comics (DC)

There are a gazillion others out there, if there's something you want me to add to this list, just post it. :cool:

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 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.

Richard Corben is an amazing talent--did you know he illustrated the cover of Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell album?

I'm really glad RC has been getting some high-profile comics work--although the writing in Starr the Slayer drove me away, I'll probably get the tpb just for the artwork eventually.

Blackest Night #6 comes out next week and some freebie shit from Marvel.

Diamond decided not to ship books next week. I know that they are having problems and all but this seems like a massively stupid decision on their part. In a business where the majority of their clients are cash flow businesses, a week off will be detrimental. I wonder how many shops will close next week for the holidays and never reopen. It should be an interesting week to read RObot 6 and Journalista.
