I think I read the first issue of one of them? But I don't remember. Lack of interest combined with cost--if they were cheap, maybe it'd be more tempting, but I'd have to follow at least 2 $4 books, maybe with double-shipping (maybe not, I can't remember which books get delayed). I'd rather not pour any more money into Marvel or DC these days, I despise the public image and corporate faces currently out there from both companies. Artists and writers like Hickman can get my money for books like Manhattan Projects and East Of West, I'll support those sort of books gladly and with loyalty. But I hate hate hate how much new talent is being ground beneath Marvel's or DC's wheels to churn out formulaic hackwork (not necessarily talking about Hickman here, he's hardly "new talent" anymore!) on superhero IPs.
Definitely superhero comics burnout contributed to it. Utter disinterest in the sounds of things like, "a new Smasher", "Captain Universe", or "Starbrand". Wishing never to see Captain America or Iron Man in an Avengers book ever again.
