When writing a review, please make sure that it is more than a plot
summary.  Most often people will read reviews to either A) decide 
whether to buy the book, or B) see whether they agree with the 
comments you make about the dialogue, pencils, layouts, plot, 
editing, characterization, colors, and the like.  Therefore, it's 
important to give more *critique* and *comment* and *praise* than 
simply restate the plot and be done with it.

Posts are most quickly posted if they follow a basic Subject Keyword
format.  Right now there are three standard Keywords that the bot looks
for, as well as checking the newsgroups line:  CAPSULES:, REVIEW:, and
PREVIEW.  Other subject-line keywords may be arranged with the moderator.

Please note that it's best to give *some* hint of which titles you're
discussing in your review;  don't just say "Mark's Reviews 11-2000".

If you will be crossposting your review to a non-comics newsgroup, like
rec.arts.books.reviews, rec.arts.movies.reviews, or rec.arts.sf.reviews,
please make sure that your review fits that newsgroup's review 
criteria.  Crossposting is fine, and is even encouraged, but please 
make sure to read the FAQs of those groups so your reviews won't be 
rejected.
