It's still summer and I'm still too lazy to come up with something to say so...

Good vs Evil!
DC vs. Marvel!
Baltazar vs. Bendis!
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that next week would have been Old Man's turn to pick. We could have picked one of his favorite books or we could have picked something to rant on since he always seemed to have fun with those, but why do just one when we can do both?!
Next week, everyone has the option to review both or review just one. The only rule is to have fun with it.
Tiny Titans #31
Written by ART BALTAZAR and FRANCO Art and cover by ART BALTAZAR

New Avengers #3
WRITER: BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS PENCILS: STUART IMMONEN

Find out here in this brand new eye-popper from Bendis and Immonen! Backup feature: Another brand new oral history of the Avengers chapter by Bendis! 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.

Yeah, having score it just barely over 6.5 I thought we nailed it that time.
