Avengers wouldn't be great without New Avengers, but with New Avengers a bigger picture is building that is very exciting.


Justice League is "so bad its good" on a level only ASBARTBW ever achieved.

Astonishing X-Men is the only thing I've dropped in awhile. Usually the books I read get cancelled so I don't have to quit buying them.

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. The last volume was revolting.

Amazing/Superior Spider-Man - Just a bad idea done badly more than likely so they can reset Spidey's status quo yet again.
Green Lantern - If Hal and/or Sinestro come back, I will stay on the title. If it continues to be about Simon Baz, I am done.
Nightwing - Brett Booth becoming the new artist seems like the perfect jumping off point for me.
Swamp Thing - As soon as Snyder exits the title, I will probably drop the title although I may give Soule one chance to impress me.
Uncanny Avengers - I am going to stick with the title through the first arc but I will drop the title as soon as Acuña joins as the new regular artist.

Reading that Fatale looks to be getting an extension annoys me. I've been waiting for Brubaker and Phillips to wrap it up and move on back to criminal and incognito :(

In interviews from January of last year, Ed B said he envisioned it running about 15 issues and he had a definite endpoint in mind--but things could change.

Then, late last year:

FATALE, the beautifully drawn and conceived crime comic by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips has been presented as a very well received series of minis up until now, but it seems Brubaker has so many ideas for the main character he’s decided to make it an ongoing. Via PR:
Josephine, heroine of Ed Brubaker’s and Sean Phillips Image Comics series FATALE, has carried the curse for decades — able to enthrall men but chased by an ancient evil, she is seemingly destined to cause the ruination of anyone who loves her. The haunting series was originally planned as a mini-series, but Brubaker and Phillips have found that curse of the femme fatale is inexhaustible. Thanks to strong sales, a wealth of stories yet to be told, and a certain mesmerizing quality, FATALE is now an ongoing series.
“Fatale was originally envisioned as a novel in three parts,” said Brubaker in an interview withComics Alliance, “but I kept having ideas for side-plots and tangents or single issues, and it started to feel more like it was meant to be a more sprawling story. So I just decided to let it go until it’s finished.”
To launch the new format, Brubaker and Phillips are taking readers back in time with four standalone issues of FATALE. Jo may feel alone in her curse, but these stories will let readers in on her past and show that other women have shared her fate.
The first of the FATALE Flashback issues, December’s FATALE #11, will reveal Jo’s early years as a femme fatale. As the story follows her on the run in 1930s California, some of her elusive secrets will come to light.
In January, FATALE #12 will take readers all the way back to Medieval Europe, when a woman possessing the powers of the femme fatale curse faces doom not only from demonic forces but also from the scourge of witch-burnings.
February brings the femme fatale to the Wild West with FATALE #13, when a man — or a woman — could blaze a trail with a loaded pistol and a steady hand.
FATALE #14 in March is a World War II horror adventure, when Jo crosses paths with crazed Nazi cultists behind enemy lines.

It was the "4 stand-alone issues" that did me in, I think.

Maybe that's why I'm still buying it.

The problem with Fatale is that it's boring. I have fallen behind on issues for several months now, and just don't care.

I am so deeply disappointed by the series that I am no longer interested in anything that Bru does. Criminal included.

I think that he and Phillips should stop collaborating. Both of them need to work with other people, very different people, to boost their creativity.

New Avengers is stellar. You're drunk.

Yeah, New Avengers is pretty rad so far. My one big regret is that I snubbed All New X-Men due to my distrust of Bendis.

On the fence about Uncanny Avengers. Don't really care to see Wonder Man and Sunfire in the book. Also don't appreciate the delays.

To be honest, there's maybe three or four monthly comics keeping me in the game. If Hickman's Manhattan Projects weren't so damn good, maybe I could rid myself of the affliction.

I just added it to my pull starting with issue #9. I'll probably get the first trade when it comes out. I don't feel like tracking down the floppies.
