Re: Is anyone else sick of the junk coming out of both Marvel and DC?

I am. Not only has the quality gone down but its tough to justify the cost vs value of comics anymore. The books are clearly priced at a point where they have long since been considered "throw away" entertainment. When one book costs $3-4 and any serious reader likely reads at least 6+ a month then the math starts to add up.
At $20+ a month you can find more value for your dollar than what the comic industry is putting out for 22pgs.

I'm about down to just reading trades and then just picking them up at shows or sales to save some more.

The industry as we know it in the monthly printed format will be dead inside 10years. Not sure what form it'll take but the form its in, and has been in, is quickly becoming devalued.
