Review Group #260: Five Year Anniversary!!!!

Last week on Review Group Drama: Seven reviews, seven pages of musical talk. Sounds about right.
Image
YOUR FAVORITE COMIC OF ALL TIME!
selected by your lovable tyrant

There are those individual comics that justify your love of the medium. They are the best that the comic book industry has to offer. Whether they appeal to your inner fanboy or are a fantastic piece of literature, this week is all about celebrating the best that comics have to offer.

So, I offer up two choices for you to select. Either a) review your favorite comic of all time, or for those who are unable to pull that book to reread it due to their collection being inaccessible, b) review your favorite comic of the last year.

I look forward to hearing everyone's pick!

[size=85]Stephen Day has next week's pick.


Image
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. There is no such thing as a "late" review.

The only request I make 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. Also you'd better keep in mind the Amber Atoms rule, if your pick isn't reviewed by 2 or more people you will be exiled from the Group for 1 year. Our definition of a single issue comic is limited to comics listed at $3.99 or lower, anything above that is off limits. Also, to prevent utter filth being chosen deliberately, the Weird Worlds Rule has also gone into affect. Any book scoring a new all-time low (2.68 as of today) will not count as a miss if people wisely choose not to purchase it. Any poor soul who did review the book will earn a free pass on a book of their choice.

I'll be contacting members this week about their desire to stay involved with the group.

List will be updated with colors and any new members I missed at approximately 10:30 PM EST, Wednesday

Scores will go here once I have power back. I'm currently using my netbook using the wifi from a nearby McDonalds to post.

Sorry for being in red. I have two of the last two books waiting to be reviewed at my LCS. I can just never get out of bed and get up there.

What do you mean - EVERYONE should have an issue this week in trying to find that one issue that stands out above all others.

It's been a week now and I'm still not close to figuring it out.

I've gotten my list narrowed down to a couple issues.

There's a Guardians of the Galaxy issue, a Green Lantern issue, a JSA issue and a New Avengers issue.

There also might be a Fantastic Four issue on the list too if everything goes according to plan this weekend. :twisted:

And this isn't supposed to be stressful! You're allowed to pick multiple issues if you don't want to offend someone. :P

I haven't got time for the full review now. (I might even do multiple reviews) but here's the gist of it.
Image

Claremont does it again! Dino Rachel attacks the X-men, and things will never be the same again. Rachels struggle with her inner dinosaur is perfectly portrayed, and Claremonts dialogue is incredible as usual.

10 out of 10.

In all fairness, I'm going to do my favorite issues from the 60's, 70's 80's 90's 00's and 2010 if that's alright?
