My comics pull list is down to the two Green Lantern titles and three of the Avengers titles and I’m pretty sure I’ll stop collecting Avengers after they all start from 1 again. That’s the fewest comics I’ve read regularly since I started collecting comics. I’ve been trying to figure out why and I think it comes down to three things:
- I’m waiting for the trade on more titles than ever. Only one title made the transition off the pull list, Fables. But when I pick up a new title I’ve been skipping the monthly all together, like with The Sword, Secret Six or Air.
- I’ve gotten more discriminatory. I was reading some title far longer than I was interested in them, Supergirl, Teen Titans, JSA and JLA come to mind.
- I’m not all that excited with what Marvel and DC are doing. Event fatigue is defiantly a part of this but both crossover events aren’t doing much for me. I can’t tell why Asgard is under Siege (see what I did there?) and in hindsight Blackest Night was written to bring twelve of DC’s pet characters back to life and I hate resurrections.
If Green Lantern is seeped in Brightest Day for another year I might lose interest in that title too. What’ll I do on Wednesdays at noon? Eat lunch or something?
