Yeah but the greatest comic stories ever came from pre-90s (even if my favourite characters and story was 90s) It use to be great of having an issue of say Spider-man.
You get the build up , the villain and end. Not much had to be continued as much even if some stuff carried over. Also you cared more about the villains back then too. Even if some were over top.
E.g Gwen Stacy's death and then the follow up with Green Goblins death to me have never and will never be touched on a purely emotional and amazing writing point. The quote from that
"So do the proud men die. Crucified not on a cross of gold, but a stake of humble tin" Is quote that today still gets me emotional.
Ironically I wasn't even alive then and I still think it's better than anything they have done in comics.
Now days you need to buy every one of their series in order to get the full story , That's why I prefer Ultimate Spider-man to 616 , less other non-spidey comics have to be bought.
I might not be making a lot of sense but it seems that yes we lost the campiness but we also lost the beautiful and moving story telling that a lot of older ones had.
Now days if they did Gwen's death (not including carnage death) it would be she died just so he would have motivation to go to big war the event of the year has lead up to.
While you are correct in many parts, the modern age still has had some of the most emotional and important stories of all time. IT started with Crisis so I would say DKR, Watchmen, and anything Grant Morrison or Geoff Johns write is brilliant. The Golden, Silver and Modern Ages all have good things about them (some bad as well). I think refusing to draw Kyle is stupid. I mean he's a good character. Ross isn't mad at the Rayner character he's mad at what they did to Hal Jordan.
