Oh, and on the subject of comics - Jason Lindquist — LiveJournal
Idle ramblings of an idle mind
Oh, and on the subject of comics
There's a couple of big annoying storylines going on, I guess. DC needs another Crisis to spike sales. This one is "Final Crisis". Which really means "Final Crisis Until We Need To Print Some Money", in which case they'll do "Oops! Another Crisis!" I could give a fuck. Evil wins. I guess someone finally figured out how to put frickin' lasers on the heads of sharks.

Marvel was responsible for "Civil War", about which I couldn't give two shits. Fifty-two weeks of superdickery.

So now, Marvel has their whole universe being infiltrated by Skrulls. "Secret Invasion". I already don't care. But if I had to decide, I'd trust Nextwave. Also, cocks.

There's gotta be someone out there worried when people like me stop buying books in the main universe because we're SICK TO DEATH OF FULL-LINE CROSSOVERS. Dear Gods!

Exactly. It made me reconsider my position that "I'll buy anything that {list of authors} writes". I'm not holding it against the writers--if some guys feel that they've got a story to tell within that context, hey great. The stuff Ennis did with Punisher and Fraction did with Punisher War Journal was good. Bendis' work? Not so exciting.

In the midst of it, I got so backlogged reading what I bought that I just stopped buying for about six months. Really, I didn't miss it. I'm only now trying to catch up. (It helps that the new job is 10 minutes from the shop run by an Ellis fan.) I'm being much more selective about what I buy and read now.
