Due to the stupefying numbers of changes that disregard continuity and classic characterization, I have only been following one Marvel and one DC title in the past couple of years. I have been pretty happy with this decision. I check sites like this to keep up on things and get a sense of what others think. I would encourage others that may be alienated to check out titles from the smaller companies instead of dropping comics altogether. I have been enjoying John Carter and Red Sonja myself but I am sure there are many other worthy titles. I also have been getting a great deal of Bronze Age comics. They often cost less then the current product and are a lot more fun to read.

I did that few years back, completed all the runs I wanted as a kid, Avengers, Defenders, Champions and new X-Men (obviously still have holes as can't or won't pay too much for a comic book).

But that's done now.

I'm not interested in small press, did that with Image and gave away a huge stock of their comics when I moved home a few years ago.

I guess my tastes are just not being catered for. I love super-heroes, I love the costumes, the soap opera, the secret identities. I don't or can't see what's wrong with it. The argument about Supes having his pants on the outside always makes me laugh. The idea of a man wearing red briefs is ridiculous, yet you're prepared to suspend belief that a man can fly, has heat vision and can lift up a mountain? That's realistic to you, take the red pants away and put him in jeans, that'll make him more realistic. Sheesh. Cage has to wear a suit and loose the tiara? Why? Ahhh, As that's makes him more real? He has bullet proof skin he got from an experiment, none of that is realistic.

The whole idea of super heroes are proposterous, so just go with it. Don't try and ground it in realism.

They really want to increase sales, go back to cheap paper, go back to creators getting smaller salaries, aim them at kids, put them down to 50p a comic and circulation will go back up. I bet you. What under 10 has £20 a month to pay on comic books.

But as stated, no one wants my PoV. im out
