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.
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.
[/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
Mice Templar: Games
(Ryan the Iowan)
2009 Eisner Nominees for Best Digital Comic
The Lady's Murder
Speak No Evil
2009 Harvey Nominees for Best Online Comics Work
Black Cherry Bombshells
Least I Could Do
The Night Owls
Angry Little Robot
Billy the Dunce
Garfield Minus Garfield
Let's Be Friends Again
Looking For Group
Year of the Rat
There are a gazillion others out there, if there's something you want me to add to this list, just post it.
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.
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. (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.
