I'm assuming there won't be any talking animals this time around. Hopefully the British teens shouldn't have any worries about anyone seeing them with their comics and running away in horror this week.

X-Men Forever #18
selected by Jude Terror[/center]WRITER: Chris Claremont
PENCILS: Tom Grummett
For our Salem-based X-Men, you’d think a trip to the South would be all buttermilk biscuits and bacon. But in issue 17, Nightcrawler and Rogue’s journey past the Mason-Dixie line puts them in the crosshairs of a familiar face known for her feminine…do we really need to say it? And in issue 18, X-Legend Chris Claremont takes us behind the visor in a special spotlight story that will change the way you look at Cyclops! Don’t miss this classic tale of the original X-Man. Rated A…$3.99
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.
