What ever happened to all the Comics I Like?
They’re gone, mostly. In the time that I haven't been able to post reviews (due to too many reasons to get into) most of the comics I like seemed to disappear. I haven't really been able to get my weekly read in as I used to and as a result a comic story has to capture me to get me to keep up, but most haven't been able to do so.
Granted, I don’t think I’ve given them all a fair chance. I loved X-factor. When it restarted in the recent volume I never read more than two books. When the Guardians of the Galaxy invaded All New X-men I stopped simply because I felt the story was about to go nowhere that I might want to follow and didn’t feel like I wanted to be introduced to the guardians there. It is that I’m so strapped for time that a title has to be really good for me to go out for it these days. Though I’m really not certain why I still follow Wolverine and The X-men, It’s been losing me for a while now. Ultimate X-men has ended, finally. So has Young Avengers, just as it was getting good again. All in all, I’m at a very odd place with comics.
But there’s good news. Avengers Undercover, like it’s predecessor Avengers Arena, just from the first two books has knocked my socks off! Also, while I’ve been on and off with this latest volume, something about the X-men title is definitely growing on me. ANYTHING that features Miles Morales has me gleeful as a schoolgirl on at a boyband concert (or something like that).
Even better news ; I should have a bit more time to be back on comics. I really should explore some new titles and give others a chance. It’s just I seem to have a particular taste that I still haven’t fully summed it yet ( I’ll probably expound on these tastes in a later post ). A lot of these comics, on the face of it, don't seem to appeal to me. I think I’ll be making a pact with myself to give other books a try, to be more open in trying to find more comics I like.
Side note : Interesting how I’m not compelled to pick up X-factor when anyone who’s ever bothered to bat an eye at my fanfiction would know I’m very interested in the character Lorna Dane.
