This past week I bought Moon Knight #188. It had bee awhile since I last picked up an issue of one of his series. Moon Knight is one of those characters that I go through periods in which I don't read anything starring him, then something happens and I get interested in him again. Other characters that fall under that category for me would be Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and captain America.

Are there any series that you guys go through on and off periods with. What are they if so? Thoughts?

Because of bad writers I've skipped large chuncks of Avengers, Daredevil & Fantastic Four coming back the month after they were gone. (Bendis & DeFalco)

Because of directions I didn't like, I've skipped Spider-Man (Clone Saga, Carnage, Gwen Slut Stacey, etc.), Batman (Knightfall), Green Lantern (Emerald Twilight through the majority of the Kyle years), but made it back inbetweens.

Because I was a fool, I skipped Cerebus after Jaka's Story (only to go back a few years later and spend another year trying to fill in back issues before I was caught up).

The X-Men definitely top this list. I always go back and forth reading various incarnations of the team. Might be because a certain artist or writer is on the book that I like or don't like. Might be because a certain story line interests me. For example I got the first couple issues of the current Mojo crossover because I thought it might be pretty cool, quickly lost interest and won't be picking up the rest.

Just to throw this out there since you mentioned it, I did enjoy the hell out of the new Moon Knight issue though, it was pretty damn good.

All of them, really. Comics are too expensive to waste money on shit runs, so I tend to drop books after a few poor issues.

I'm pretty much the same as nieto. I have characters I truly love more than others(The FF, Thor, Cap, TMNT, Wally West, Dick Grayson etc etc)but if I don't like the comic I will often drop it. The FF being the lone exception to that rule because we all have our dumb completionist tendencies.

Then there are the books that I wait for trades on and always feel behind about or am foggy of what occurred in previous issues. Usagi Yojimbo is the big one as you get one trade every year around SDCC.

Yeah, I liked it too. The new villain seems like he could be interesting.

That would be Avengers for me. The Heroes Reborn period was the only time I wasn't getting at least one major Avengers team book.

Yeah, I'd say pretty much every series works that way for me. I'm not one of those people that buys every issue of a series. I'm not gonna buy every issue of Amazing Spider-Man. I usually don't buy a book unless it's either a writer I like or an arc that interests me. Usually, I'll buy a certain writer's entire run, but I might drop it after a new one comes on, depending on how they are. And sometimes, a given arc will interest me enough that I'll buy the book for that arc when I usually wouldn't have.
