Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt #1
as selected by SilverPhoenix

Written by SEAN MCKEEVER
Penciled by MIKE NORTON
Cover by GUISEPPE CAMUNCOLI

The Story: (hide) FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN! With a growing sense of uncertainty and despair gripping the nation--and the world--the remnants of the Initiative program are sworn in as federal agents charged with keeping the peace. Their ensuing actions, however, threaten to plunge America's young heroes into civil war! Featuring AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE stars THOR GIRL, ULTRAGIRL, CLOUD 9, KOMDO and HARDBALL--plus FIRESTAR, GRAVITY and some very cool surprises--YOUTH IN REVOLT brings the horror of FEAR ITSELF to the doorstep of a generation!

Doombug 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 (2.12 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'm going to try to do something this week to try to stem the epic "BlueStreak doesn't have enough time to post front page articles" problem.

Namely, a "live" front page article that will be updated when reviews come in.

in summary, "various and sundry" is a stupid phrase and only used by halfwits.

The last issue of Uncanny X-Force was better than gastric bypass surgery, sure. Barely.

My personal belief is that last week's Uncanny X-Force was released in an attempt to show that Marvel still believes in killing Nazis, as Fear Itself featured lots of live Nazis, but not a single dead one. :smt011

Plus they are afraid to show Nazis in Captain America.

Fear Itself #2 must've REALLY sucked because I read it and erased the entire experience from memory. Much like I'd like to do with the entire former portion of today actually.

No some girl ordered an "everything" bagel then freaked the fuck out saying she was allergic to sunflower seeds and ran out crying while various White Knights ran after her to no avail.

Seems to me if you have food allergies you should 1) wear a T-shirt that says that, since apparently I'm supposed to magically know this otherwise, or 2) order the plain bagel, not the one designated by name and appearance to have "everything" all over it.

For some reason, the mental image of a bunch of hipster boys stumbling over each other to run after some girl in leggings made me laugh.
