Amazing Spider-Man #626
selected by Dragavon[/center]WRITER: Fred Van Lente
PENCILS: Michael Gaydos

Hiya, Retailers, Fred Van Lente here to tell you we could never let "The Gauntlet" get by without the return of another classic Spider-Man foe...THE SCORPION! She has brand new powers, a new modus operandi, and you won't believe her reason for tangling with Spidey-- Hm, what? Yes, we said "she." Why? Who did you think we meant? 32 PGS./Rated A …$2.99

Blackest Night #8
selected by Old Man[/center]Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art and Cover by IVAN REIS, OCLAIR ALBERT and JOE PRADO

The extra-sized conclusion to the most talked-about event in comics is here, and the results will change the course of the DC Universe for years to come. Earth has become the final battleground for life versus death, but how will our heroes fight back against the darkness of sentient space itself? And what does the future hold for Green Lantern, The Flash and the rest of the world's greatest heroes and villains? Find out here as the stage is set for the next epic era of DC Comics!

DC Universe | 40pg. | 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.

Irredeemable got a lower score than I expected.

Can't wait for this issue, Spider-Man has been awesome since the start of the year.

I've been reading ASM last in my pile because it has been one of the suckiest books out right now, so it'll be interesting for me to put it at the top of my pile.

Well I'm so glad you took time out of your busy schedule to announce that here. It really helps. It's so much more mature than just ignoring the thread and talking in threads that you do give a fuck about. This was a great use of your energy.

Thank you.

I wondered who the first asshole was going to be that just had to run in here to announce that they didn't care. Suprisingly... I'm not surpised.

Whoa! Calm down man. It was just my opinion. Did you have butt surgery recently that is causing you a lot of pain and stress? Is it amplified by struggling to close on a house for the last five months? If so, hang in there, I totally understand. :(

No. I am just a poor comic shop manager who works too hard for the little bit of money he gets. I am also a single dad which makes my economic woes all the greater (as does my comic book addiction). Oh, and it has been ten years since I got laid, so I am a little pent up. So there :p.

No one knows where she is at... so what good does she do me? And poor... what part of poor did you not get. Food for my daughter, rent, food for me, comics... that's the priorities in this household, dammit.
