Walt Disney Comics and Stories #701
as selected by thefourthman[/center]
Writer(s): Riccardo Secchi
Artist(s): Stefano Turconi

Featuring a brand new team of super-heroes culled from Disney's Mickey and Donald universe! Come adventure with The Duck Avenger, Super Goofy, and the main man Mickey himself, as they take on the Phantom Blot and his nefarious group of ne'r do wells! At stake…nothing less than the riches in Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin!


Image

Hellboy: The Bride of Hell
as selected by Chris[/center]
Writer: Mike Mignola
Artist: Richard Corben

A year after their Eisner-nominated collaboration Hellboy: The Crooked Man, horror comics legends Corben and Mignola reunite!

A nineteen-year-old girl is kidnapped and Hellboy tracks her down to a remote clearing in France where she's about to be given to Asmodeus, in a strange tale of ghosts, demonic revenge, lost love, and King Solomon.

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 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.

I (and Amlah as well) read Hellboy in the big Library Editions and do not want spoilers or to try to do anything even resembling catching up.

I think it is a great pick and it will be interesting to see what the group thinks of the book, but I have chosen a path of reading for the book that I am remaining faithful too.

Ah, ok.

I read pretty much everything collected, so every pick for the Review Group messes with my path of reading. :P

It's why I only really do a review every few weeks, though I try to still participate.

there are only a few books I read that way and only two of those that I can think I would react this way to, the other being Powers.

Yay. I love me some Richard Corben. I should be in Tucson when that comes out, so I can actually pick it up and contribute for once.

It's part of Dark Horse's one-shot program. If it's anything like the Abe Sapien one-shot a couple of weeks ago, it should be safe. 8)

i don't care. I made a bed, I will lie in it. I am not suggesting he change his pick. I am just saying I won't participate next week. That will make Punchy happy anyways.

Whatevs. I had already decided to buy it even if it wasn't the pick, the Abe Sapien and Goon books in the promotion were greatness. :P
