Ohhh, I love the cover of Batman #33! Looks very nice. And what's up with Batman Eternal?! It's releasing so much issues in little time! Are the series any good? I know Scott writes this book, so I'm assuming it has to be very good one.
Great article, Mat! In my humble opinion, too much of Crossover events can be very overwhelming and difficult to follow what issue to buy next. It's like "read Batman #23. And then read next to Superman #343, and then, Wonder Woman #44, and then Batman #24." Eventually, you're starting to think, "Okay, please stop jumping around too much! Can't I enjoy my own favorite hero for once?!"
Also, money can be an issue. If, for example, a big crossover event(s) are starting to pour out every single week so fast in little time, it can hurt my wallet. I pay all bills, foods, toys for my son, etc., and it's no way that I can keep up with every issue (especially $3.99!) in so little time. Currently, I am following Batman (Scott Synder) and Wolverine (Paul Corner). I can only afford to buy both titles at the moment and if they're planning to do big crossover events, then I know it'll going to hurt my wallet a bit.
Now for the good side. I like big crossover events because I love big story! It makes you want to sit near the edge of the seat, wanting to know what's going on next! I do like crossover events but all I'm asking is please don't "over" do it too much.
