Ultimate Spider-Man #155
selected by Eli Katz

THE END STARTS HERE! The Death of Spider-Man prologue!! THE most talked about story of the year begins!! Peter Parker has gathered his most eclectic group of friends and family in the world. In this very special issue we will discover some shocking secrets that will either pull them closer together or push them apart forever. Welcome to Spider-Man stories you have never read before. Welcome to the beginning of the end of what you know to be Ultimate Spider-Man. And welcome fan-favorite Chris Samnee as he makes his Ultimate Universe debut!

Image
Punchy 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

A note of order: My recent flu and some other things have made updating the spreadsheet of Doom tricky over the last couple of weeks. That ends this weekend. I will be updating the spreadsheet and getting shit together and sending PMs to delinquent members. I've been very lucky that the pickers of the last few weeks have been in good standing.

I apologize. I've been getting caught up in other stuff and need to remember that this is in fact a priority around here on the Outhouse. Well, as much of a priority as anything can be here on the Outhouse.

I am looking forward to this comic, but not any of the Bagley that comes after it.

Are they really doing that? I mean, the story is called 'Death Of Spider-Man', it won't be a surprise who dies.

Death Bagleys = sales, of course they're doing it.

I, personally, plan on purchasing five Death Bagleys to help flood the ebay market.

Since no one cares about this, Zero should be able to buy up all the available deathbags in Punchy's area by buying 2 of them.

No-one cares about this one though, so it'll be a lot harder. If the industry is to be truly crushed I'll need donations to the good cause.
