There are a lot of iffy title on my list this week that may get cut sometime in the future. I'm also going back and rereading my entire blackest night TPBs because I finally got the last one I needed a few months ago and I want to read it start to finish in the order it came out. I have a bunch of books with little paper tabs sticking out say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ect.

I'm keeping the dream alive!
Honestly so much has happened in this series since this thread has gone up I think that people's views on Starfire should be completely different. This last arc was really Starfire heavy. We saw her in a new costume (do you think she'll go back to the old one when she returns to Earth?), we saw her go in depth into her past and present, and she even mentioned that she may be in love on Earth (I am assuming she means Roy). She seems like a completely different Starfire than the one we all debated 7 months ago.
@longbowhunter I haven't ever read it either, but thanks for the cue. Maybe if I enjoy the writing I will pick it up.
@tomlikesfries Yeah that was another thing that drove me bonkers, the jumping back and forth all the time!
@JSH92 I only read the first issue of G.I. Combat. It wasn't bad, but I didn't want to try reading it. I wasn't really into Men of War either. I am looking forward to the upcoming JLA.
@SmashBrawler I really like Jeff Lemire's work. I love Animal Man and thoroughly enjoy Justice League Dark since he took over (before him it was kinda lagging). When did he stop writing Frankenstein? His departure from the title might have been what caused me to drop it.
@sagejonathan Agreed. I have already dropped both Red Lanterns (Until this month because of the 3rd Army Story Line) and Firestorm and I could easily lose one of the many Bat Titles.
@longbowhunter I'm not familiar with the writer on this next DCU arc, but that isn't saying much as I just started reading comics again last year.
@MadeinBangladesh I spend about 25 to 30 bucks a week on comics, which has actually scaled back quite a bit!
@tomlikesfries Good list. I dropped Supergirl after the Banshees. I loved the series up to that point but it lost me after that. Batwoman was good but it feels a little slow for me, not enough story gets resolved and it feels like it has been going around in circles.
I can't say that this news affects me much and I can see why these titles are being canceled as all 4 of them have fallen off my list already. I see a lot of people criticizing the cancellations but in reality these aren't the only books for non-mainstream characters. There are many other, better written ones like Dial H (One of my favorite titles) and Demon Knights and DC Universe Presents ect. And I am pretty sure that all the previous titles released in the last wave were non mainstream books like Phantom Stranger, Team 7, and Sword of Sorcery. And one of them was a new hero book all together with Talon, albeit born of the Bat.
So I am facing quite a decision for next week. I try to keep my Comic Book spending down to at least close to $25 dollars a week but next week is filled with some tough choices for me. Do I want to buy DC Universe Presents #13 and Sword Of Sorcery #1? Or do I cut those two from the list for Marvel Now Point One?
