Okay so been a lot of talk recently about jumping on point with superman: earth one, the new .1 initiative and the start of Batman Inc. It got me thinking, at what point does a comic reach a jumping off point?
Now I'll admit this is very similar to Bab's recent post about dropping titles, I'm thinking have you ever wanted to drop a title cos it's starting to drag a little? Both on your time and comic budget? However, it's not that bad that you'd drop it straight away so you see the arc out and then think, well that wasn't that good I think I'll drop that book now. Maybe it's just me, am a little OCD in that I'd want the whole set but sometimes it works out. I was quite happy to drop Daken as much as a few days ago but then I got #3 and I'm interested in the series again. After all it was only one arc.
I know for me a jumping off point for the hulk books was after world war hulks, it just got a bit boring for me and the idea of incredible hulks sounded banal and it just wasn't something I wanted to keep investing in.
I imagine there may be some out there thinking of dropping bat books over this whole Batman inc scenario, I'll put my hands in the bucket and say I'm intrigued. I think it's a bit of a radical direction but it's good to see risks being taken with a marquee character. It's usually very difficult to make major changes to a character with such rich history without messing it up (cough, brand new day) but i know some people are disgusted with the idea and will probably move on for a bit.
Going back to Bab's recent post on dropping titles and wonder woman, are there any of you out there who would consider dropping the book after this arc? Or have you already dropped it out of disgust?
