Do you like sharing your opinions on the comics you read?
Do you want the community to see why you do or don’t recommend a comic book?
If the answer is YES! The Review Crew is for YOU!
Who We Are
The Review Crew is a group of members of the DC Universe that enjoy writing reviews of the comic books that we read from the DC Universe comic book library. In the future, this may open up to different content other than just the comic book library, but for starting reviewers are expected to review the comic book library found here.
Monthly Group Read Reviews
The first week, a monthly group read selection will be announced by the club leader (@PrincessAmethyst). All reviewers will have that week to read the club selection. Start formulating your thoughts on the reading!
The second week, you need to post your review!! The review should include the title of your review, a rating, and your thoughts on the read material.
Here is where the monthly aspect gets fun! At least to me The third week, look at your fellow reviewers’ reviews and post your thoughts regarding some element. Do you agree or disagree with some of their thoughts regarding the material? Discuss why you feel the way you do about the reading. Stat why you didn’t feel that way about the reading. Have a back and forth, constructively with each other.
The last week, group members will continue discussion regarding the reading material and wrap-up any ongoing discussions. This week also group members will begin discussion regarding the next month’s selection. There will be a poll on Thursday with group members being able to vote on the next month’s selection from those that were mentioned.
The other expectation for The Review Club is writing a weekly review to a comic book from the comic book library on the posted forum for that month. Look for the “The Review Crew - (Month) Reviews” forum thread to post reviews to each month, starting in March. The review will be asked to post one review each week to any comic book issue(s) that they have read. The review should include a title, a rating, and your thoughts regarding the material you read. Anything additional or formatting is up to you!
It is fine if you need to sit out any particular week from reviewing. This is for entertainment and fun, so don’t feel that you can’t sit out a week.
All reviews should include a title, rating, and your thoughts.
Reviews should be constructive in nature. It is fine not to like a particular artist or writer, but why should be stated in the review of why you don’t like the particular artist with more than “they suck” or “I don’t like them.” There should be a reason. For example, “I don’t like ARTIST A because they draw Batman with unrealistic proportions for how he is usually presented in his main title. Other artists do not show him drawn this particular way and it was distracting as a reader.” You don’t have to be this wordy, but you hopefully get the general idea.
For the monthly discussion, it is expected that we will have differing opinions on the material. You should state your opinion appropriately. Anyone found to be rude, belligerent, attacking, or not following the community guidelines may be asked to leave the Review Crew, so please follow these simple etiquette rules. Just be polite to each other. It isn’t asking that much right?
If you join up, feel free to answer these questions to start some conversation:
What is your favorite comic book series and why?

Is there any part that you are anxious about?
