It's a shame, really, because you have so many fascinating titles coming from Image or other imprints right now, and they don't get enough attention.
I guess that's why, on my blog, I usually review titles that not everyone is reading (or talking about in message boards).
here's a different perspective, though: I may hate repeated stories over and over again, but I also dislike "indie" stuff. I don't want to bog my collection down with a bunch of characters that may be flashes in the pan or just aren't as memorable as others. Also, there's a shit ton of shitty indie stuff that can quickly drain one's money and collection space. I'd rather have shitty spider-man comics that still hold a valuable place in my collection of spider-man comics rather than some ugly, stupid fucking indie comic that I would just as soon throw away than take up space in my home. If something "indie" is really worth picking up, I'll pick it up in trade and have it as a book on my shelf. But, as far as floppies go, I only want stuff that adds to my collection. And I try to limit my collection to certain characters or creators, and for the latter, I tend to only collect the more ongoing type of stuff in single-issue format. Anything else is better as a trade. Maybe if indie comics were like 25 cents or something, then I'd buy them instead of "the big two."
