Have you sampled some of the non-"mainstream" comics that are out?
Well, I only have enough money for, like, three books a week nowadays (and, actually, funds are so low right now that I'm down to ZERO books) but non-"mainstream" stuff doesn't interest me. I'm a capes and super-powers fan, tried and true. I've sampled some of the more critically acclaimed stuff out there but it rarely clicks with me. I'm not a big fan of anything horror. I don't like too much adult themed crap (which always turns out to be boobs, blood, and vomit). That would include stuff like Invincible which did nothing for me.
BK lent me the first Chew trade which was... interesting but not my kind of book at all. I used to love me some Bone back in the day and there used to be some fun swords and sorcery books that held my interest. I'm a gigantic Transformers fan but dropped the last ongoing about nine issues in because of lack of funds and never looked back.
I still enjoy some Big Two books, of course. Journey Into Mystery is one of my favorite reads but I'm pretty sure it's only got about half a year or so before it, too, gets the axe. Snyder's Batman is the bee's knees and I'm not even a big Batman fan. There's certainly stuff to read that gets me excited.
But there's an undercurrent of bad stuff happening here and poor editorial direction that borders on incompetent at the moment. I don't mean to say that lightly or in a fanboy rage or anything. I've seen more balls being dropped in the past six months, editorially speaking, than I've witnessed since maybe the early nineties. Marvel, especially, seems like a company that's just going through the motions and isn't taking their product as seriously as they should.
Or I could just be still cranky after suffering through Fear Itself. Who knows?
