I'll second the nomination for Confessor's Star Wars thread.
It's obvious how much he cares about the subject matter from his reviews, which are incredibly detailed and, even though he loves the material, not shy on being critical when the work isn't up to his standards. As I've been rebuilding my Star Wars run lately, it's been fun to read his take on it, as it's been years since I've read any of it.

There are so many quality review threads here that have all been the recipients of tremendous care and work, but I was ultimately torn between nominating two of them, and mrp just nailed one, so that frees me up to nominate crazyoldhermit's Garth Ennis' Punisher MAX thread. I'm not a fan of the Punisher, and I've never read a single one of these books, but his writing style was so engaging, concise, and informative that it absolutely kept me wanting to read more, and the little extras, like assembling a timeline, body count, and even a medical record were just pure icing on the cake. VERY fun.
Seconded. crazyoldhermit contributes some fine review threads.
