I die a little inside.
It’s like the past coming back to haunt you!
It’s right up there with Disassembled and House of M, where it just seemed they were like HEY BENDIS DO STUFF TO PISS PEOPLE OFF, HERE’S WHO YOU CAN KILL. I really like a lot of his writing, and I know Civil War wasn’t a solo effort, and there’s always things that are editorial but— but—-
I kind of broke up with Marvel shortly after that. Me and DC are kinda broken up at the moment, too. (New 52…although they look like some really good stories, a few titles I was following for years I felt were forced to stop ahead of their time. )
I just hate how both DC and Marvel always try to have these epic-title-spanning-world-changing-forever-events every year. I really enjoyed Blackest Night, but maybe because it came out of two plus years of story development. The rest of the events— it seems they get a list of things that would make people buy books/ shock people / characters to kill, and worry about telling a good story second.
._. Anyway, I just hope it leads people to read other better stories, and don’t spend hundreds of dollars trying to read the whole thing.
