I likes me some Transformers, not the movie Transformers, those Transformers suck, but the real Transformers. The ones from the toys and the cartoon and the Marvel comics. Are there archive editions of the comics out there like the G.I. Joe ones? I'd kinda like to read those again. I certainly won't be seeing the Michael Bay suckuel next week, instead I'll probably see Star Trek again. Now THAT was an awesome sci-fi action/adventure movie.

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. Going forward, there is no such thing as a "late" review.
The only request I make with the new format 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 Spreadshee of Doom is thorough, but it can't read your mind.
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.
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. To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays.
BLUE indicates explanation given for not posting a review. RED indicate that no review or explanation has been posted in two weeks. RED and BOLD will be deleted at the end of the week unless a review or explanation is posted.
Each Tuesday I will putting together all of our reviews and we will have our very own article on the front page of The Outhouse! If you would like for your review to be included, please try to have it posted by the end of day on Monday.
