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

Yesterday was my Birthday.

And I'm not trying to be controversial, I genuinely felt Batwoman was boring, and very much a typical Bat-comic, there was nothing there I haven't seen 100 times before, apart from Lesbianism, which only goes to prove how DC have exploited the character's sexuality to make up for shortcomings in actual characterisation and good stories.

The art was nice, but it was unnecessarily complex, such a straightforward story was only made less enjoyable due to Williams' confusing layouts. It's like dressing a dog in Luis Vuitton or something.

But this thread isn't about Batwoman, it's about Morning Glories, so I'll save the rest of my thoughts for when I do eventually do my review.
