Isn't buying a comic that you were so interested in reading ends up being a terrible comic and you've realized you've wasted your money as a comic reader? Especially when you buy on digital and you can't even return the damn things? If it happens to me on print I'd usuallly sell it to my friend or something but I still hate the feeling.

What are some of the most disappointing comics you've read?

Some of the most disappointing comics I've read? 93.765% of every New 52 comic I've read. My opinion whether I get flak or not for it.

DC New 52 has been mostly disappointing.

Valiant has started to disappoint me lately too. I've dropped half of my Valiant stuff. What I have left usually collects in a small pile on the bottom of my pull. Ever since Unity, X-O has not been as good. It's sucked the life out of that book. Since Planet Death I've been bored with everything from Valiant, save for Bloodshot & HARD Corps.

Only Marvel has consistently impressed me.

Most people liked it. I hated it.

When Tynion took over Red Hood and the Outlaws was pretty bad. It went from being my favorite book month after month to being total crap. I still bought the issues though, hoping they would get better. I green Arrow in the beginning of the New 52 sucked hardcore. Wasn't a fan of Superior Spider-Man at first but somehow it really grew on me.

#11 Edited by Experio (17250 posts) - - Show Bio

Battke of the Atoms, Superior spider-man, Blue beetle, Age of ultron. Just to name a few.

#12 Posted by MatteoPG (1927 posts) - - Show Bio

Final Crisis. I expected so much, it was just all over the place.

Battle of the Atom dumbed down and ruined the little good that came from the new era of the X-men.

I'm picky and hard to impress. I've been disappointed by 99% of New 52. I also tend not to like critically acclaimed books. Its not necessarily the writing, I just find that they are over-hyped and so I go in with bigger expectations than what I should and end up disappointed. Usually my being disappointed in any book has to do with the failure to care about the characters in the story.

Jason Aaron's Hulk and Matt Fraction's Fantastic Four are two of only a handful of books that I have ever dropped mid-arc. I usually ride it out to the end of an arc, but not for these two because I was disappointed in them. I didn't start reading Thor at first because of how much I disliked Aaron's story with Hulk. It took 4 or 5 issues of great reviews before I picked up the first issue.

#16 Posted by PeppeyHare (4310 posts) - - Show Bio

@cap10nate: Yeah, Fantastic four wasn't very good. FF was incredible though IMO

#17 Posted by sagejonathan (2032 posts) - - Show Bio

Bendis' Guardians of the Galaxy and the first 14 or so issues of Red Lantern from Milligan before I dropped it.

I would say the Taskmaster: Unthinkable series. It wasn't the worst thing I've read, but it had such good reviews and I was hoping more from it. I thought it started of fairly well but went down hill, and I found myself struggling to understand some of the plot and dialogue.

#21 Posted by BR_Havoc (1340 posts) - - Show Bio

Like others have said many titles of the New 52 have been horrible. As for Marvel Remenders Captain America was a huge let down.

#22 Edited by waezi2 (8469 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it has to be Justice League Of America, by Geoff Johns. He introduced so many new characters, but didn't really do anything with them, except for showing them to us.


#23 Posted by CaptainHoopla (1193 posts) - - Show Bio

Everything from DC except Aquaman, Batman, and a few issues of Detective Comics. Captain America and Iron Man from Marvel.

#25 Posted by Wardemon32 (4635 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmmm some of mine would have to be from New-52. The art really got me but it isn't what it turned out to be so I stopped myself from buying the Outlaws. The only REALLY good comic was the 'Night of the Owl' series really. Off of the top of my head Wanted was pretty disappointing, Kingdom Come was pretty slow and boring to me, Hawkeye was seemingly terrible. I don't understand how people can like his comics?

#26 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3567 posts) - - Show Bio

Either the New 52 Superman or Constantine.

#27 Posted by LyraFay (2536 posts) - - Show Bio

Knightfall, it was a bit chaotic and Jean-Paul Valley might be the most despicable character in Batman mythos.

#28 Edited by Wardemon32 (4635 posts) - - Show Bio


You mean the one where he was in actual Knight Armor? Yea I was not buying that haha

Infinity and Battle of the Atom I dropped marvel because of them

#34 Posted by Manwhohaseverything (2104 posts) - - Show Bio

House of M.

FF..I got the first 5 issues based on reviews here, and dropped it...have no idea why folks liked it, but since it's now cancelled, I feel redeemed.

I've liked the New 52 by and large, but Superman is 27 issues in, and still hasn't had but maybe 1-2 good issues. Action started out great, got a little tiring (towards the end of the Morrison run.) Recently it's gotten back to okay.

Detective has gotten much better lately, but to see it get off to such a bad start was a big let down.

Totally agree on Battle of the Atom, but I liked Infinity

Cap was kind of disappointing this week

Remender can be so hit or miss with me. Just when I'm loving what he's doing he does something so predictably droll.

#38 Posted by Cap10nate (2737 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll also have to add Age of Ultron to my list. I was so excited to read it because I love Ultron, and he never made a real appearance until the end which was basically a reprint of an older Avengers issue. I was excited for the premise . . . let down. I was excited about the team going into the future to fight . . . let down. I was excited to see how it would end . . . let down. There was nothing in there that met my expectations or exceeded them. I had some faith in the first couple issues, but it eroded as the story progressed until I was just buying the last couple issues to see how it ends.

  1. Humphries' Uncanny X-Force
  2. Wolverine and the X-Men
  3. The "Battle of the Atom" crossover
  4. Stormwatch after the re-boot told me that my 18 issues were irrelevant garbage that never happened and don't matter <insert New52 joke here>
  5. Batman: The Dark Knight (except for that one story about Scarecrow)
#40 Edited by Jphu8414 (3877 posts) - - Show Bio



I feel you bro, thinking about it just makes me sad

I was so hyped for Ultron, but you BARELY see him at all. The event was pretty much a lackluster Wolverine story...

Superior Foes Of Spider-Man is quite boring to me.

@imagine_man15: infinity was pretty solid I just felt it and BotA left to many unanswered questions and did not wrap things up in a nice way to justify the events.

#44 Posted by Army2442 (1875 posts) - - Show Bio

For me it was crisis of infinite earths it was good and really reached its climax when the anti monitor fought the specter but after that it dragged on for far too long. The new 52 flash was good but Barry Allen was soo boring.

It's been said before but most of DC from the last 2 years. Right all I'm reading from them is Green Arrow. From Marvel probably Uncanny Avengers, and from Image Pretty Deadly. That narration just seems so forced to me.

52 Aquaman and Uncanny X-Force. I was surprised by how average Aquaman was.
