If DC doesn't do anything to make me cross with them, I plan to support Vertigo monthlies more from now on. ICON books, if they continue to add stuff like Nevins and others the added value virtually guarantees monthly purchase. Most of the independent stuff I buy monthly to support smaller lines than the big 2+, but that means every month those books are up for reevaluation--Sweet Tooth is a recent casualty, for example. I won't be faithful if the product doesn't 100% satisfy me. (That doesn't mean each issue has to be perfect or a "10", it's more complicated of course especially in regard to multi-issue story arcs. And I am very fickle.)
Marvel otherwise, I'm considering just not buying any longer in monthly format ever.
