Project 500

Just a little heads up for those who care.  If you are wondering why I have slowed down from reviews and have not posted a new one since the " Star" article, it is because I want to make the recorded #500 a special one.  I have invited a few friends and acquaintances I respect to help me out with this experimental review.  I am told it is the first attempt at such as thing on the vine, so its got me excited.  I hope you all read it and like it.
 
It is not the #500 I really want to talk about, it is the possibility to invite other reviewers to come together in a community to do an official "relay" review of this landmark series I think needs a little more love.  I don't want to spoil what series that is in the works and I don't want to spoil my friends list just yet.  But if we can sell you guys on issue #1, who would be down to continue in a relay all the way to the finish?
 
It is really not about the numbers with me.  Being on top without the recommendations of the community would not mean anything to me.  Being the "Prince" means the world to me and I thank all those who have showed love in any way.  This is why PROJECT 500 is more about the comicvine community then my review count.  I've given my team now a little under two weeks to have Review #500 up for you all.  And I hope it does inspire us all to come together as a community, this invite to the relay is not exclusive to those who have reviewed before, those who haven't reviewed can as well volunteer. 
 
Dependence on the volunteers will determine how this relay review will work.  So feel free to come out in the hoards.  
This is for you Comicvine, Cheers 
 - Kevin

If its only our skeleton crew, then be it.  But the this project is intended to inspire, so I plan to give it a little more time.

issues 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11 are open, you can lock one down for now.  If you are flexible, may be we can get you to write more then one, or team up with some one like the jam session.

absolutely! I am down for anything, and would love to write more than one. If it would make things easier for you to organize, go ahead and sign me up for 11.

I jot you down for 11, if we are short on volunteers, you and liberty can go nuts.

My Little riddle:

The Number Four is when I will appear.
My current status brings readers fear.
Cameos are but few,
Warning of Chaos my presences is true.

 Does the riddle make sense now after I say I am writing the review for issue #4 of CoIE.  that is the issue with John Constantine's appearance...lol

Nah, better let someone else do it. I don't know when I am going to read it and there are others in the Vine better equipped than me to do it anyway. ^_^

...lol Its up to you man, its not like I want war and peace written.  The project was meant to inspire and you would be a perfect example of someone inspired.  You joining is a perfect example of the words synchronicity.  We meet one day.  Both did out our things for a while.  I hit a milestone and decide to do a project.  You happen to start reviewing and have the source material for the next phase of the project.  It sounds to me that the universe wants you do write the review for issue number 2.

not pressure.  I has nothing to do with being ready.  I did mention any review experience allowed.  Having you on board would be an inspiration, like how Superman is.  It is a great way to break out of your comfort zone.    But no pressure.

Don't matter.  If you want 2 you can have it.  I want to try to do the relay in the proper order, but Sha has been ready a few days...lol
I had to break her the secret in advance, since she was most deserving of the SG issue.  But its up to you if you want either of them.  IF you do 2, I still need someone for 3...lol  I want 4 so then there is the gaps in the middle....lol  I'll pencil you down for two... sorry for the above ramble....

Great review and I know whoever got issue #3 will knock it out of the park like you did.

I need to go to town on Saturday, so I'll make a note of all the open issues and swing by my comic shop to see if I can find one.  If I do I'll get a review up early next week. : )

Update!

The Relay is off.  So far we are at issue #4 and issues #5-9 have agreed reviewers.   One more spot remains and it is important because there is volunteers for issue 11 and 12.  No experience is needed, the few two reviewers to the relay has less then 10 reviews written together.  Both great on the record.  
 
Some people have mentioned interest but no access to the book.  I am not saying to buy Crisis, since I don't know who will love it or not.  But I do say it should be read and if your library has it, then you can read it for free ^_^
 
One more reviewer is all I need to complete the relay.  
This Project was for you Comicvine, please don't let me down. 
I have so much faith in you.
Cheers

Its no competition between reviewers ^_^
We all view comics at different angles and I am glad there is this medley of reviewers.  Krakoa did a wonderful job yes, but that doesn't take away from your great review, FO2012 or any one yet to be written.
 
I am happy with how Project 500 is and it is nice so much care from other users has been invested.
I can't wait to read the rest of them,

I am very grateful for the positive feedback, and I concur with Silkcuts. I'm yet to read a review by anyone on this relay that hasn't been eloquent and thought provoking. Kudps to all and all to come.

My local shop didn't have them but after reading these reviews I think I'll be stopping by eBay or somewhere else to pick them up anyway.  These analyses are really deep and although this series was published over twenty years ago you guys are making it sound like the comic event of the decade.  Also, as a Flash fan I suppose it's a bit shameful I've never actually read issue #8 (really looking forward to that review Liberty!).

Glad you are enjoying Project 500
It may be better looking into the trade.  I believe the coloring was updated in the trade version.
Issue #8 is big, this is why I had to have Liberty on issue #8, I agreed so much with what he said in issue #1 that Barry died so noble I didn't want him back.  Wally is still my flash personally.

No worries.  Wally was always the flash when I was younger and reading comics, I knew Wally first, so he became my flash.
