Almost everyone here reads mainly comic books featuring characters created decades before they were born, those comics are the past. By definition they can't be anything but at some point along a repeating cycle of events.
You make a post about an excellent truly independent or small press comic and you get virtually no responses every time.
You make a post about "which Avenger would you like to see punch which X-Man?" and people crawl out of the wood-work.
Too true. I've done this many times on other boards, only to hear crickets while some X-piece of crap or the latest Geoff Johns wank-fest gets a fifty page response.
