(If any other retailers would like to sponsor our reviewers in your area, I'd be happy to promote your store in the thread too )
What we do: This is a fanbased review group, open to everybody.
As people post the reviews, I will add your name and score to a list in the main post and at the end of the week average the scores for an overall grade on the book. We grade on a scale of 0-10, the meanings of which roughly translate to:
10 - Everything I want in a comic, an instant classic
9 - Excellent, a nearly perfect read
8 - Highly recommended but it has minor flaws
7 - Very good, it does have some problems
6 - Above average but has deep flaws
5 - An average comic
4 - Below average, the flaws outweigh the good
3 - A disappointing comic
2 - Forgettable, a waste of time
1 - Stay away!! One of the worst comics I've read
Anyone who participates is asked to please keep this scale in mind when giving a grade so that everyone is operating on the same system.
THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO PARTICIPATE EVERY WEEK. Please join in as little or as much as you like week to week. If you are uncomfortable giving a grade then just join in the discussions and ask questions.

That World War Hulk was a real Review thread?

The writing, from the story to the dialogue, did nothing for me, I found it pretty dry really, but the art was phenominal. The past heroes that are discussed in the first couple pages was the most interesting part of the entire issue, Madame Mirage does nothing for me so far, I'd much rather read a book about them than her. And really, I can't say enough abut the art, Rocafort is a talent.
I glanced at this at the shop and decided to pass.
If I hear good things I'll probably pick up the trade, though.

My main problem with it (especially being a first issue) is that, well, it's never a good sign when your title character is the least interesting character in the whole book. Maybe that will change, I dunno.
