Wowzers, last week was way more awesome and successful than I think anyone could have anticipated. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Diamond sucks. Maybe Choker ships this week, maybe it doesn't. Since the situation is a clusterfuck, this is our first ever week with a backup pick.

If your shop has Choker, get that. If your shop doesn't have Choker, get Tails of the Pet Avengers instead.

This is the first week this has ever happened, so we're going to just make it up as it goes.

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.

How are you going to do that? You said your shop didn't get Choker! :x :x :x

:P

If no shops got it this week and it doesn't get picked whenever it does actually come out, we'll have a Spin-Off thread for it or something.

Snowpocalypse 2: The Revenge started last night, and we've already got over 9 additional inches of snow in my yard. I don't think I'll make it to the comic shop today. It's just as well, as I do not think it's been open all week.

Nonetheless, I will post a review of the Pet Avengers comic based solely on how good I think it will be if it comes to it. :P

Possible. It will suck if it is, because I will have massive problems getting my shipment replaced. It's also possible that the tuesday accounts didn't get it and the weds accounts did.
