It's been a while since I went through the entire back of VEI TPBs and their related reviews over at Amazon.

We all here did a FANTASTIC job at the start, with many TPBs getting 30+ reviews, all of which help VEI. However, for the last while, that has dropped off so starting with myself, I am challenging all of us to try and correct this situation. I'm speaking ESPECIALLY to the members who participated in rounds #1 - #3 of the reviews, AND to members who now get the majority of their ready from TPBs. Below are listed ones which need the most help. If everyone could repeat their past efforts and take a while to go to Amazon and do a review on as many of these as you can, it would be a REALLY big help to VEI :thumb:

www.AMAZON.com

Unity Vol 4 3 reviews to date
Harbinger Vol 6 Omegas 6 reviews to date
Q&W Vol 4 Q&W Must die 1 review to date
A&A Vol 7 the 1% & Other Tales 0 reviews to date
Delinquents 7 reviews to date
Eternal Warrior Days of Steel 1 review to date
Bloodshot 6 The Glitch and Other Tales 0 reviews to date
XO Manowar Vol 8 4 reviews to date
Rai Vol 2 6 reviews to date
Bloodshot Reborn Vol 2 3 reviews to date
Ivar Timewalker Vol 2 1 review to date
Ivar Timewalker Vol 3 1 review to date
Imperium Vol 1 6 reviews to date
Imperium Vol 2 4 reviews to date
Imperium Vol 3 0 reviews to date
Ninjak Vol 2 3 reviews to date
XO Manowar Vol 9 0 reviews to date
XO Manowar Vol 10 1 review to date
Unity Vol 5 0 reviews to date
Unity Vol 6 0 reviews to date
Unity Vol 7 0 reviews to date
Rai Vol 3 4 reviews to date
Dead Drop 3 reviews to date
Book of Death 3 reviews to date
Book of Death Fall of the Valiant Characters 2 reviews to date
Wrath of the Eternal Warrior Vol 1 2 reviews to date
Death Defying Dr. Mirage Second Lives 1 review to date
Ninjak Vol 3 1 review
XO Manowar Vol 11 0 reviews

We all have our personal favorites and everyone wants to do all they can to help out VEI. As we pointed out in the past, you don't need to physically own the TPB as long as you have the issues which make that volume up. Every single review helps when someone not familiar with the goodness which is Valiant is looking for a new reading source. Lots of reviews catch the attention of people and aid in making that choice. So PLEASE take some time and do your part to help us help VEI with getting this group of TPBs more noticed and gain in popularity :high-five:

I'll do my usual updating to let everyone know how this task is progressing and a big THANK YOU in advance for YOUR help with this :clap:

For better or worse, a couple of those Unity volumes are on the board.

I'm surprised at some of the books that have 0, like Inperium volume 3 was amazing and there's nothing.

This is one of the problems with being fans of a comic book company that puts all their books out ON TIME EVERY MONTH! :!:

We're behind on reviews. facepalm

It's definitely a burden to be a fan of a company like that, but I guess we can handle it. :thumb: :clap:
Let's see what we can do! :high-five:

I am way behind on reading and even further on reviews. This weekend I should be able to get a pile of reading done, and will get started on the reviews as well. Thanks for the friendly reminder Bruce.

Wow, 29 TPBs to do reviews for... I'm in! :lol:

I've got a Hell of a lot to do this summer, but I'll review 2 or 3 trades per weekend and I'll soon be caught up on this :thumb: Really not that hard if you do it this way.

Just wanted to remind people to post reviews over on Barnes and Noble as well - I've just posted a couple of reviews on there and neither of the books on that site had reviews although several people had reviewed the same book on Amazon. Might be a sign that the review 'situation' on B+N might be even more lacking than Amazon, so it'll be just as well to patch that up whilst we're putting our Amazon reviews together :thumb:

just got done doing another two reviews for this group. Will keep plugging along on all of them.

So appreciative to everyone for their support and promises of support yet to come :thumb: With all that help, we can certainly get these books the helpful reviews which they deserve and which will be a great benefit to VEI!

Thanks so much to all :high-five:

UPDATE TIME:

When we started this thread, these 29 TPBs had a total of 58 reviews for all of them.

Today, 5 days later, these same 29 TPBs have a total of 72 reviews for all of them :o

This is a GREAT start :banana: :banana: :banana:

Thanks to all who have helped out to date. I have every faith that even great numbers of reviews will add to this total in the coming days. Will keep you informed of the progress :thumb:

When we started this effort, these 29 TPBs had a total of 58 Amazon reviews.

As of this writing, they now have 79 reviews or an increase of 37% in a relatively short span of time :banana: :banana: :banana:

From PMs I have received from members, I know there are a lot more reviews of these to come so thanks to everyone both for what they've done so far as well as what they planning to do on this :high-five:

And again, another reminder that as of tomorrow (July 5), you can leave a review for the FAITH TPB over at Amazon. This is important to VEI so any effort you could extend on that particular volume would certainly be appreciated. :thumb:

Love when I click on a book to review, and I already have reviewed it.
Job Done already. Happened a few times, just thought I would share that for no reason ~ but just to post..
