Hi, the internet. I'm SuperginraiX and I wasted a lot of my life reading almost all of Fear Itself and then writing about it. All it's missing is Fear Itself #7.3: Iron Man because I got to a point where I just couldn't pay for this final final final book.
I started out less than excited about the event and went down from there. I'm usually the guy who CAN'T WAIT for a big event so the fact that I could barely get enthusiastic was probably a good sign I wasn't going to enjoy this thing. I just never thought it would make me feel this dead inside. While there were a few tie-ins that were pretty damn awesome, THIS was the event that taught me that I don't ever want to read a Matt Fraction book again. This was the event where the last book was just terrible on so many levels that I spent most of my time writing about it in full complain mode. I will spare you a repeat on the rant.
But it was ALSO Fear Itself that has left me utterly unenthusiastic for ANY Marvel book, let alone event. I see this Avengers vs. X-Men event heading our way and I just don't care. And I blame Fear Itself.
So basically, I'm only reading IDW's Transformers books now and that's just because I love Transformers more than my disdain for the entire comic book industry. I'm hoping this feeling wears off in time but no decision made by Marvel (or DC, really) is helping. Both companies have some readable books... some GOOD books... but I'm finding it harder to care.
