THE CRUNCH: What's That Got To Do With The Price of Comics?
I'm aiming to start 2011 with 7-9 monthlies and two mini's at the most.
When I saw Chris's name on the cover of the recent Shed story-arc in Amazing Spider-Man, I made a detour from the norm, and when it and he were done, so was I. It was great. I still got my monthly dose and being a huge fan of the creator involved, I knew chances of been let down by content were pretty slim. It's win-win!
Writer Paul Cornell is another. His Captain Britain work would've been the one title I'd have yanked away with me to a dessert island back in the day, that's how I'm finding his current run in Action Comics, and why I will pick up his Soldier Zero from BOOM!
It's not all going to be creators over characters from here on in - The Flash for example I once tried to give up many moons ago, but only lasted three weeks! However as a pull-list perspective it has definitely got me off to a good start.
What about you? How has the rising cost of comics affected you and are there any ways you've found to 'slim down'? Feel free to drop your thoughts below.
