The Question is... what can be done about it? I mean seriously, as long as pathetic losers who get off on high body counts and low humour keep buying, the industry is gonna keep supplying.
I hate to sound like comic-book guy but "They Owe Me"
I loved the marvel universe... i absorbed it like a sponge to the point where i can name most any character from any major storyline since the whole shebang started... and i only started buying comics in 96. But they went and tanked it, decided that sales figures are more important than heart, and that decision seems to have paid off in the balance sheets.
What can WE do?
Come.. to "The Dark Age of Comic Books" if you dare...
Welcome to this community, which is dedicated to chronicling, discussing, complaining about and hopefully coming up with alternatives to, the current situation in the comic book industry, which I call "The Dark Age".
To those who're wondering what I'm talking about.. First of all, let me envy your innocence. Secondly, to explain, the "Dark Age" of comics is what I call the current trend in comic books to have "serious, dark and gritty" stories, often involving senseless and gratuitous violence or mature content, in increasing numbers..
Now, while I personally think mature, serious stories have their place, when done right, I think the current comic book industry is, frankly, oversaturated with them. ...And not even well-written mature stories, for that matter.
So, who's with me? Current Mood: annoyed
