1. A review needn't be epic length. if you've read something recently (or even not all that recently) and you'd like to post a single paragraph response - good, bad, or mixed - that's perfectly fine.

2. I'm deleting the section of the community profile about off-topic posts. If we decide there's a burning desire for off-topic discussions at some point in the future, I'll add it back in.

3. This community has been - up to this point - pretty writer focused , but what I'd like to do now is encourage artist-centric reviews and commentary as well.

To give that a jump start, on Sunday morning (March 17), I'm going to make a post that asks you to embed or link a sample from one or two favorite comics artists (and if you're so inclined, to say a few words about why you like their work). After that, if you want to do an entry about a specific issue of a title that just talks about the art, that's fine.

Welcome to Comics Reviews, ETC. a community created for reviews and discussions about comics (new and old, single issue and complete runs, digital and trade paperback). It's likely that Marvel and DC comics will get the most attention in this community, but posts about comics from all publishers (Dark Horse, Image, IDW, independents, etc) are absolutely fine.

(Initially, this community will concentrate on western comics; manga, etc may be added later)

If you want to include an image or two in your post - or add a reference a comics-related film/t.v. show - that's fine, but remember that the focus of this community is reviews and discussions of comic books, and all posts must reflect that.


* Subject Heading should include Book Title, Volume/Issue(s), Writer's Last Name.

* Once a specific comic issue/trade paperback entry has been posted, please keep all related discussion to the comments section of that entry. Needless to say, if you'd like to discuss a later issue (or issues) of the same title, feel free to post a new entry.

* Note to original posters: differences of opinion about the comics you're reviewing are going to happen and yes, you're going to see them as replies to your posts. Rebut those opinions or ignore them, but no deleting of comments, please. If you believe a comment is a flame (or contains hate speech, etc), please PM the Mod.

* Feel free to introduce your posts as you wish, but...ALL discussion of the book/series must go under a cut, since everything's going to be a spoiler to somebody, no matter how old the title is. Posts will be moderated to ensure the community remains spoiler free.

* (adapted from scans_daily) Any post that contains potentially triggery discussion - such as extreme violence/gore, sexual violence, abuse, self-harm, and offensive and oppressive content - must include adequate warning.

---> My own note: Because such warnings may constitute spoilers about the issues in question, I'm going to ask that all warnings appear below the cut, but with 15 blank lines between the warning and the main text of the entry.

read more. No, more!! )
