After these past 2 weeks putting a hurtin' on my wallet...I've been thinking more and more about dropping a bunch of books from my pull list. The majority of them being DC titles.
It hurts to say it----but they just aren't that good. I'm not caring about those books like I am, say...newuniversal or Daredevil.
I'm thinking about dropping both JLA and JSA after "The Lightning Saga". And---as great as Checkmate is....I'm thinking about dropping it as well. There's just not enough going on with these titles for me to care about what happens next or 6 months down the line.
The same goes for both Superman and Action Comics. I'm pissed that Donner/Johns' AC got cut to an annual...and all the filler arcs they're doing until then just don't measure up. They're not bad----but they're not anything to write home about. Supergirl is kinda lagging as well.
I stopped reading Dini's Detective Comics because they're just one-shots and since they weren't tied to anything, I didn't see the harm in letting it go to save a few bucks. But Morrison's Batman run is less than stellar. IMO anyways. So I think I might drop it by summer's end.
I'm also getting bored with WW. Amazon's Attack is ok....but it only affects like 3 books. 2 of which I'm not even reading.
The only other DC books I'm getting are AS Superman and Batman, Green Arrow (but that's ending in like another issue or 2) and Robin.
I just caught up with Countdown....but if I'm not really interested in any of the DC titles....why should I bother getting that every week?
Am I the only one who feels like this towards DC? It's not that I'm a Marvel fanboy....it's just that DC isn't really turning out any compelling stories.
