Is it me, or are the revelations of SI completely underwhelming? Even reading a synopsis of a tie-in Avengers book leaves me under-impressed. I stopped reading SI after #2 and it's still boring me and leaving me cold just hearing about it. I don't find it very original or intriguing or enjoyable at all. In fact, I find it grating. and this is from someone who was originally looking forward to the story idea.
If this is what BMB has been working on for years *cough - yeah right - cough* then I gotta say that I feel the Avengers and Marvel have hit an all-time low in storytelling. Between SI 1 and 2, and all the Avengers synopsis' i've read since SI started, this is all junk that could have been done in a one-shot.
Oh well. Onto better books for me. I look forward to all the counter-arguments, but all I need to do is re-read Kree/Skrull War to know that SI is marketing manure.
(Again, just my opinion. I realize some of you are enjoying it. My tastes differ, I respect your opinions, and that they may be different. I am by no means suggesting that anyone is lesser for liking SI. So lets not get incensed at my reasons for disliking it, if anyone feels like writing back).
I've been skipping Marvel's major events since about the time Bendis Dissasembled the Avengers, and I'm a happier man for it.
Keep tabs on your favorites on this board, and then spend money on the good stuff out there like Annihilation, and support the books that should still be going like Ant-Man.
I didn't read House of M, World War Hulk, Decimation, or Civil War. I'm probably forgetting one or two also. Guess what? I still enjoyed the books like She-Hulk that tied into them. Thanks to the 'net I knew enough to "get it".
