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 do the same. I was always a Marvel only kid growing up, but I find that nowadays I enjoy DC comics from the 70's and 80's much more than anything I've read from Marvel in the last 10 years.
