TWO freaking HUNDRED!!! According to Marvel's pricing model this thread should cost extra, but since a Marvel pricing reference will probably send Punch into a tizzy this week's thread is going to be totally free.

Invincible Iron Man #21
as selected by Old Man[/center]
WRITER: Matt Fraction
PENCILS: Salvador Larroca

THE STORY: Tony's closest friends and lovers have gathered to try and help the man rebuild his shattered consciousness, body, life and legacy...but when Tony gets the call, does he WANT to come back?

And you didn't think the bad guys were going to just sit back and let Tony rest and recuperate, did you? Rated A …$2.99

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!

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.

No, it was 19 and 20 along with the Requiem one shot that got me to drop it. They had also double solicited not too long before that as well.

If I had been enjoying it more I would have bitched about it but kept reading it, but Most Wanted went on way too long and I was bored so the pricing and needless one-shot was all the excuse I needed to just be done with it.

Of course now I'll be buying 20 today when I pick up 21 so that I won't have a gap in the story when I do my review.

And Fraction's Punisher sucked, let's never speak of it again.

I liked it :oops:

Now I'll get fourthy on my ass for daring to like a Punisher that isn't Ennis or something, and how I have no knowledge of Punisher history!

Remenders punisher was ok. At the start of darkreign I mean. Fraction writes good iron man, but anything else he associates himself with that I read is GARBANZO

FOr the record I hate the fucking Punisher, Ennis made him somewhat entertaining, I am reading Aaron's first Max issue right now and it is boring... that's why I liked Frankencastle, it was awesome, cause Punisher sucks.

Also Most Wanted went on way too long, I dropped out like the second or third issue, cause I didn't care. 20 was okay but seemed a weird starting point, I hope this issue is better. Did I need to read Requiem? Cause I really don't want to spend that much time reading Iron Man that isn't by Ellis or the Knaufs or where he isn't drunk.... that's the only way I like my Stark.
