I know the sales have been dropping because of his terrible writing. I've only been buying the series to keep my collection intact but his writing is so god awful i'm at my wits end! I can't remember a time writing has been this bad in comics. The guy is a legend in the industry what the hell happened? I can't stomach anymore. If he doesn't leave soon or if the writing doesn't improve i'm going to quit buying. It's my favorite series but I can't take anymore. Bring back Judd Winick or someone else that has written the series. ANYONE BUT CLAIREMONT!!!!
