i view it as all long lasting sagas, like 52. i'll judge it when it's over. it also has firestorm, who while absent the past couple of comics, is one of my favorites.

Maybe it will develop into something better but I am very unimpressed so far. I at least like the reference to the oil spill in the last issue.

The Aquaman storyline is at least getting interesting.

I like Spidey as a character but I normally don't read his comics.

Also, I normally just download comics but occasionally buy them.

Hmm, what are you all's favorites to read?

I always liked Spider-man, Batman, Superman, and X-Men growing up. I watched Cartoons, the movies, and watch Smallville lol.

I am pretty knowledgeable on Superman and a lot of the characters (After The Incredible Hulk came out in '08, I spent hours reading about a ton of the Marvel Universe comic-book characters online to get an idea behind the history of the character).

Are comics better nowadays than they were in the past? They always seemed like glorified picture-books to me? With the lame "Bam!" "Whack!" etc stuff and not as much conversation.

My normal reading is Green Lantern comics, anything Batman, Invincible, Irredeemable, Superman, anything Avengers, and Thor. I have been reading a lot of The Authority lately too because I am trying to catch up to where they currently are. The Authority is fantastic btw for anyone looking for something good to read (recommended to me by rezznor).

Lol you sound like you're 50. Comics were too dark and extreme from the 80s-90s and now they are a little more normalized.

I only buy issues like once in a blue moon but I read whatever interests me. Usually: The main batman ongoing, Red Robin, Green Lantern, all the X-men ongoings, whatever avengers ongoings, iredeemable, Invincible, Fables, Walking Dead, Nemesis, etc.

I generally only read events and, their tie-ins. The only on-going that I am guaranteed to check out is Secret Warriors. If I come across an interesting looking trade I will check it out. The things that have my attention are The Second Coming, The Thanos Imperative, Shadowland, and Golgo 13.
