When we did Locke & Key I sent my copy to 48 and he later sent it on to Yoni. When we did Kill Shakespeare I sent mine to Chubbles and iirc the same week Squid offered out multiple copies and didn't get any takers. :smt102

I've still got a copy of Teen Titans (and Batwoman now too, I guess) for Punchy, but he refuses to accept delivery.


I never said that, PM me.

Bluestreak is there anything you could be doing to pay homage to the older leaders of the group who contributed so much?

Like how Marvel does with the "presented by Stan Lee" something like that for whoever came up with the review group.

Well, I know that we had yoni, John Snow and Punch as Tyrants. Is there anyone else you had in mind? I'm starting to look at our five year anniversary stuff and what to do with it.

I didn't realize you were a tyrant in the past. :P

Unfortunately, I don't think that it'd be exactly fair to Ameobas, who already had one pick vetoed, to have his second pick being credited to another poster. Now if you wanted to rejoin, we could definitely add your name to the Thread title when your week came around. It certainly would garner the unique hits.

And just because I had to go over there to remember who that was, holy crap is the BenBo RG boring! OH RG Drama FTW! Even with the drama, we still post way more reviews. Our Batwoman week had 15 to their 'Tec week's 2.

And for anyone who thinks sticking with the original pick format was wrong (BenBo RG picks each week via poll) they've done 4 of the last 6 issues of Batman and Robin. :lol:

I'll tell you what, if you can convince my fiancee to a) start supporting my new position as Review Group Tyrant, b) understand that the three to four dollars for a Review Group copy of a comic to be sent around to various members to encourage more people to review books on a regular basis is a solid investment and c) start reviewing the books herself, I will consider it payment for a full year's worth of Twigglet Presents advertising on the Review Group OP, plus Thread Title rights to any pick that week's picker consents to, with a minimum guarantee of three plus the anniversary thread.

Right, I'll asked her next time she comes around.

HEY-O!

No but seriously, congrats on the fiancee. Now does she post here? I'm on a mission now.

I'll review this once I've had a chance to get out and Byrne it. I'm trying ot review every week until my terrible choice comes up.

Also, Week #260 is coming and will be my first big RG anniversary week, I hope our latest tyrant has something up his sleeve.
