I’ve recently re-thought about the comics I am buying, and a lot of them no longer fit into the realm of getting a good return of enjoyment.
Avengers (and really any Marvel Comic)
The recent relaunch of the Avengers group of books had me excited, but not at $4 each. Its kind of odd. At $2.99, I would have bought 1 or maybe even 2. At $3.99, I’ll buy none.
Legion of Super-Heroes
I like the Legion of Super-Heroes, the team. I enjoyed seeing them in the JLA/JSA cross-over. I bought the issues of Action Comics which followed up on that story. And I bought the new LSH title. Until I realized I was paying $3.99 an issue. Its kind of easy to miss when you are buying a bunch of comics every week. I know the price will go down, but its the principle of the thing. And then there is the fact that the stories were kind of dull and felt like retreads. Mind controlled Ultra Boy creating random destruction? Boring. Saturn Girl worried about her kidnapped kids? We already did that. One of them was sent back through time and became Validus. Besides, I wanted to read about the Legion, not their kids.
