Ze rules:

Post your review in the forum thread or in the comments section here on the front page.

Review as often or as little as you like. Once you've posted 5 reviews, you will be awarded 1 pick. You can post 5 reviews, right? That's a totally achievable goal and with day and date digital releases becoming the standard, it shouldn't matter if your shop ordered enough copies of this weeks comic or not.

When multiple Review Groupers have posted 5 (or more) qualifying reviews, they will be awarded their pick in the order that they qualified. What constitutes a qualifying review? Any review posted (with a score on a scale from 0-10, that's right 0!) within 1 calendar month of the thread going live. Reviews are to be at least 5 sentences long. It shows that a) you have at least read this week's pick and b) you have some unique insight into the comic.

Reviews posted while waiting in line for your pick will be applied to your next pick.

I'll be keeping track of everyone's progress with the newly christened Spreadsheet of Fantastic (RIP, Spreadsheet of Doom) and reporting the results in the Current Members list in the weekly OP. When it's your turn to make a pick, I will PM you. If you do not respond to me by Midnight EST the following Sunday, you will lose your pick and I will start a poll to determine that week's selection.

Any week in which we do not have a Review Grouper with 5 qualifying picks, we will determine the week's comic via poll.

If it's your week to pick, remember to keep it under $3.99.

Sam Alexander's father isn't his father, but a clone replacement sent by the Chitauri to steal his Black Nova Corps helmet. As the situation stands at the beginning of this issue, the first clone has decided he likes Sam and his family and no longer wants to work against him. With this first clone essentially in rebellion, the Chitauri have sent a second clone to steal the helmet.

This set up could be a very confusing one if not handled correctly. Fortunately Sean Ryan does a good job at keeping things as simple as possible. The overall narrative is easy to follow and the story is fun.

Next up for Sam, I would guess, is a quest to find out where the real Jesse Alexander is. I'm looking forward to seeing where this story goes from here.
