Been about 15 or so since I seriously collected. Was a fan of John’s when he was a nobody who wrote the Wally West “Flash”, but wasn’t a fan of any “Rebirth” books and bending over backwards to pander to my age group at the expense of the fans who came after. I check the comic sites almost daily and comics from the Big 2 just look like convoluted clusterfucks. The only titles I pick up (if I don’t wait for the trades) are those in the “Black Hammer” universe. Because they’re usually mini-series, and it’s a pretty small little universe that pays homage to many classic characters from the Big 2, but with a more sophisticated, usually melancholy, vibe. Not grim n gritty, not quite Vertigo level, but *leans* in that direction.
