It's come to my attention recently that I read a shit ton of comics, thus spend a shit ton of money, but the thing is, I don't really care all that much about some of the books I read, and have just fell into a habit reading them. So these past few weeks, when I see books that I'm actively putting off reading until the end of my "stack" (quotations since I read digitally), I realize that those are the books I've sort of stopped caring about, and I figure I'll just pull the trigger and stop reading them.
To be honest, a lot of it is DC stuff. The New 52 is far from new, and is starting to get stale, while other various things happening around DC don't make me too optimistic towards the whole line. Yeah, I like my Batman stuff just fine, but I'm starting to lose interest in many of DC's characters outside of Gotham. The books I'm losing interest in may be fine, others may like them, many do... but I just don't find them exciting anymore. I'm starting to notice the DC has a style of book they like to publish, and it's very by-the-numbers. They have their winner's here and there, like Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Arrow, but for every great book DC has, they've got two or three average titles. DC doesn't have stuff like Hawkeye where the creators really (metaphorically) own the book, and are doing something truly unique... instead, they just have a whole bunch of superhero books that don't do anything out of the norm, and I'm starting to get bored.
I don't know... so when you start reading my thoughts on various issue and how I'm losing interest, that's why.
