Double Special Review Group Week #266: Morning Glories #8

Last week on Review Group Drama: Thread can be found here

Morning Glories #8
selected by Punchy

What is Morning Glory Academy, and what does it want with Casey, Zoe, Hunter, Ike, Jade, and Jun? What mysteries connect the six of them to the school, and what is their true potential? This spellbinding issue brings us one step closer to the answers to those pivotal questions!

Image
BlueStreak 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

Everyone must participate this week! Not only is it my pick, but it was also my Birthday this week, so it's a double special Review Group.

I'm out. It's my birthday next week and I'm celebrating by not reading a comic I'm trade waiting on.

However I will review any of your past picks if you pick one for me.

You still owe us a Teen Titans and a Batwoman review, jerk! I didn't send those funny books across the pond for your amusement.

Amlah is being mean, so let me take a moment to say how excited I am for Super-star Nick Spencer to come in and fix the blah in Secret Avengers.

I was waiting until I had read Elegy so I had the full story.

I finished Elegy yesterday, so a review is forthcoming. The worst thing about it is how dul and pedestrian it is.

:smt011 You are so incredibly full of shit at the moment with your posts today.

I'm assuming yesterday was the birthday and today you're just trying to be controversial? :smt011
