I'm not saying that comics can't do that, I just don't buy into the idea that every issue of every title needs to be groundbreaking, cutting-edge, blow your top, HOLY SHIT, type stories. On the flip side though, I don't want to read issues about Spider-Man spending his day grocery shopping, doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom, cooking dinner, and then doing the dishes.
Actually, I've got lots of comics I enjoy of people doing those very same things.
Of course there's a lot more at work in the comics I refer to than just dishes and laundry, but many feature what you might see as the mundanity of daily life.
I don't have a problem with why you or chap are saying you still read superhero comics, what I'm saying is that doesn't work for me. And part of the reason is stopped working for me was
, in fact, Hickman's FF. Because I was only reading it still because I liked FF as a kid, outside of the nostalgia it had very little left to offer me, and I dropped it mid-way through the run like Jubilee did. It was okay, even good sometimes, but no longer useful to me.
