Review Group Week #276: Spencer Double Team!

Postby BlueStreak » Wed May 25, 2011 7:59 am

Last Week on Review Group: The butthurt level was around a 4. BTW, Doomy, my fiancee has been enjoying the whole Hawkeye/Mockingbird series, so she'll probably like Blindspot too.

Iron Man 2.0 #5/Secret Avengers #13
as selected by BlueStreak (inspired by Twig who lamed out on us

Secret Avengers #13
FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN. Armies are mounting against the Avengers on every side, and even the Gods have turned their backs on Earth. With humanity facing it's gravest threat yet, Steve Rogers and his Secret Avengers will make some hard choices about what's just in times of war. And even as they do, a new danger of a different kind emerges-- one that confronts them not in the name of evil or fear, but freedom and liberty.

Iron Man 2.0 #5
FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN One of the major villains of FEAR ITSELF shows up to claim his power and wreak havoc right in the pages of 2.0. Rhodey must join forces with Danny Rand, the Immortal Iron Fist, and the Immortal Weapons if he hopes to win the day!

AMS 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.

Always Right (this week)

I got three first prints of Morning Glories #1 and SOLD THEM FOR OVER $100.

Then I bought the first trade for $6.

I win. There is no escaping this as an absolute fact, Punchy.

I would sell my soul in a heartbeat assuming figments of imagination were going for a good price that day.

It'll be interesting to see how some of our more... pretentious members try and balance their love for Nick Spencer with the most hated of comics... the event tie-in.
