Dear comics: It's not you, it's me...  
Today I wandered into my local comic book store (hubby wanted to buy the new Batgirl bust, which is adorable, btw), and found nothing. once upon a time, hubby and I were doing twenty-thirty titles a week. Of course the baby blew that all to hell- for awhile we could barely get to the store once a month. Going (all but) cold turkey really broke the addiction and now I can't go back. I still can't keep up with the multipart epics that seem now to occur every month and even the titles outside that stuff-- I'm so meh. Even Astonishing X-men which I continued to read pretty much purely for Teh Joss and Kitty and Scott, I can't cope with it anymore -- I don't like Emma (and the more I read them, the more I hate Emma/Scott with a thousand fiery suns) and I wish Piotr had stayed dead. It was kind of sad to look at all the titles I used to read and not want to pick up any of them again. Fannish glee all gone. :(

Or, maybe not, since I'm coveting that Kitty mini-bust like crazy. It has Lockheed, woot!

Awww. *cuddles*

If it helps, I used to pick up ALL of the X-books, and now? I'm personally buying BSG, the silly Dark Xena book and... That's it, I think. I'm reading Cable and Deadpool, though, which is mostly full of Fabian and Fabian snarking other plots (like multi-book crossovers, where the other writer obviously doesn't bother reading what's going on in C&D)

I broke up with comics when they broke Wisdom and Pryde up. Sigh.

Oh! And the Wisdom LS was fabulously AWESOME.

Well, I'm still getting the BSG title too, but that's part of my BSG fannishness, I figure, not really comics. So it only sorta counts.

While I was annoyed when Excalibur blew up, really what broke up me and comics was Grant Morrison - I hate his runs on X-Men and Authority (and Justice League for that matter). I know he's wildly loved by fandom, but I've found I generally don't like what he does at all.

Wisdom LS! Damn, I knew there was something I was supposed to be looking for yesterday. Totally forgot!

I don't even try to read some comic series anymore. I haven't read Astonishing X-Men in ages.

Right now the only comics that I read is 'season 8' of Buffy and the Battlestar Galactica comics.

Yeah, I get the BSG one too, but that only kinda sorta counts as "comics" I figure. I'm waiting for the trade for Buffy so I can read it straight through. I think my other problem with comics nowadays is I just can't be bothered to remember what happens from issue to issue anymore when they're a month or more apart.

I know what you mean about waiting a month between issues. I didn't really think about the trade for Buffy. I should've! LOL. Oh well. :D I was being impatient and needed more Buffy. :)
