Batman & Robin, Batman Inc, Nightwing, Catwoman - too many Bat-Titles thought I'd just stick with the originals, Detective & Batman.

Firestorm, Sword of Sorcery. Loving both of them but with the news of their cancellation thought I may as well cut them.

Thunderbolts, Avengers Arena - not very memorable.

Considering cutting a load of Marvel. Fed up with events. Think I'll just stick with Cap, Daredevil, Hulk, JIM, Wolverine (Cornell/Davis), Fantastic Four, Thor, Fearless Defenders. Will try GoG. Avengers seem to be event-centric, had enough over the past several years. A shame, apart from the Bendis run, my all-time favourite comic/team.

This time last year I was reading fourteen DC / Vertigo titles and three Marvel ones. Now it's fourteen Marvel, six DC and one Boom title.

Good. Fuck that garbage.

I am on the verge of dropping Morning Glories. Too many plotlines and not enough resolution.

Swamp Thing is going when Snyder does, everything else on my list is either good enough to keep or only just got added.

But at least you had the unforgettably beautiful gay sex scene on issue # 19, don't you forget that.

I dropped these:

Young Avengers- I was looking forward to this book, but that first issue...wow. Just awful. Easily the worst comic I've read in a long time.

Iron Man- Cool ideas but terrible characterization. It's a chore to read. I just do not care for anything I've read by Keiron Gillen. Very bland writer.

Captain America- I just don't like the direction of the book and John Romita Jr makes it unbearable.

Uncanny Avengers- I don't need to read that many Avengers books and this one just does nothing for me. The concept just doesn't work with this cast. Havok giving orders to Cap makes no sense and the prospect of Acuna's art coming up turns me off.

X-Men Legacy- I liked the first issue but I haven't liked anything since. Just a meandering mess of a comic.

Battlefields - I just feel like I've read the same story over and over again
Crossed - oddly enough same reason,that and the stories are really dumb most of the time once you get over the shock value of the series there's not much to it
JLA- I just got bored with it I guess I just don't care about superman and company
Action comics - I've really never liked this book from the start but I kept hoping that Morrison would turn it around

on the chopping block
Swamp thing and Animal man - for awhile these books were really solid I feel like both have run out of steam
morning glories - how long has this book been out ? like 5 years ? I'm still wating for something to happen

I read this in trades... and yeah, it's getting to the point where it needs to resolve some of these 'mysteries'. Volume 1 was awesome and there was so much potential. But it's starting to feel a little like the last 2-3 seasons of Lost.
