Punchy 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.

Trade wait for The Unwritten so no review this week for me
“Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly-up, disappears. It ceases to exist without me. No. You clearly don’t know who you’re talking to. So let me clue you in. I am not in danger Skyler I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No, I am the one who knocks!”

I vote for Punchy because he gets hilariously pissy when bad issues of USM get bad scores.

Why is young Wolverine on the cover of The Unwritten?

Also, just like everyone else who isn't GLX I read this book in trade so I will not be reviewing this week.

Seeing as Punchy is an infinitely more competent picker, I should be able to review next week.

I would have reviewed last week (or the week before that or the week before that or the week before that), but I'm still super busy with post-move stuff (complete with a bonus impounding of my truck because the state stopped mailing tag renewal notices without announcing it. :smt013 ) and have been reading that Wolverine one shot by Lapham and Aja for the past 4 days.

I would tyrant back up, but I'm clearly not active enough anymore. Punchy should do it since it would piss off everyone equally. It would be nice if we got someone who can update the previous weeks list though. I don't know what the picks have been for the past month to even try reviewing one of those.

I would consider being once a month tyrant or special tyrant but well, work is actually work most of the time now so yeah but I do not support Punchy who I took the reigns from and ran the train on times.

Maybe if we didn't have members who quit even though they were reading that week's comic anyway, we'd suck less.

If you can commit to a weekly schedule and have the review threads up by Wednesday, I don't think Punchy would mind not getting this stuck on him again.
