In certain areas, I’ve read a ton. But I’m severely outclassed by a lot of people here when it comes to DC of just about any time period.

Y’all read way more new comics than I do. Some of those I’ll catch up to some day, others I never will.

It’s funny that I actually read fewer comics now that comics have diversified more and have more things that speak to me. But I think it’s just that I can find things that are for me with so much less digging now. I’m getting what I want with less work.
the beauty of refined tastes. i'm struggling with that and video games in recent years. knowing i should play all manner of games (and still doing my best to) while knowing in advance how boring or bad it's going to be.

The bigger an investment something is in terms of time and money, the pickier I am about what I get involved with.

I will watch damn near any movie you put in front of me, because they’re such a minimal commitment, with unlimited potential for what I can get out of them.

There are twelve dawn of X ongoings now and planned (if you include giant sized). One of them is ending so if you leave out the one shot series it's ten books.

Barbara Gordon calling Blockbuster, as her own assistant, to bail out Dinah who Blockbuster currently sent to Gorilla City and thinks is Oracle AND Black Canary, is quite possibly one of my favorite things.

I wouldn't have said Metal or Joker's new face

I would've said DC Rebirth and Dawn of X/House of X.

Also, I realize it's just Big Two, but if it was outside of Big Two, The Walking Dead ending should've probably been on there.
This shit is gonna be stupid but fun

What?
What's the count of X-books that we're on now? Cause it feels like we're approaching 20.
X-Men
Marauders
Excalibur
X-Force
New Mutants
Wolverine
ThunderXbolts aka Hellions
Cable
X-Factor
The book with X-23, Darwin, and Synch that's using the one last X team name that I can't remember

Cancelled:
Fallen Angels

So no more than 10 at a given time, but Wolverine hasn't dropped yet despite having been announced since the beginning of the Dawn of X stuff.

Wasn’t there a Coates/Bartel Storm thing that never happened? Or did it happen and I missed it? Or was I high when I thought there was ever a thing in the first place?

I don’t think Fallen Angels was canceled (based on the sales stuff posted here it seems like it was selling very well), Hill just stepped off the book because of Hollywood stuff and being spread too thin.

I wish DM covers were in my budget but in order to collect I have to go by the standard ones.

But I did get the variant and the standard for HOXPOX.

My favorite comic periods are the second half of the 90s and early 00s. BUT, they are also some of the worst times lol.

Basically everything after Onslaught for Marvel. This period at Marvel has some of their best books imo. Especially with the switch to digital coloring, the art gets a huge improvement.

Fun fact: JJ Abrams' Spider-Man outsold every X-book outside of X-Men proper

Irrefutable evidence that JJ Abrams needs to take over the Dawn of X
