Since one of my favourite characters became stupid egoist because of stupiDan Sloot, I spend my time talking with my friend about the level of quesada's idiotism and greed. And sometime about ways we could kill him.

Looking good Babs, love the shirt! Go Giants. agreed on the WW story btw

I feel like spending money on things I'm not enjoying.  That said, it would take a lot for me to not buy a Martian Manhunter story; Batman and Superman, who I love just as much, it is easier to pass on the less quality storylines since there are so many other options out there.  Lesser known characters like Martian Manhunter or even Wonder woman, you have less options, so one is more likely to stick it out.  That said, I dropped JMS Wonder Woman right away.  Not the character I want to read about, and judging by the few issues of Superman I read before dropping it (and the reviews of Earth One) JMS is not a writer I'll be rushing out to read anymore.

its tough to see your favorite character suffer bad writing or an unnecessary reboot. I nearly gave up on Spider-Man after the One More Day storyline. I'd stick with Wonder Woman, hopefully they'll swap out the writers after the current storyline

I am a huge superman fan and I stopped following when he started walking across America, cause thats my way of protesting a crappy story. I'll keep tabs on the title of course so that I know whats going on, but I wont buy it and I'll give the next arc a chance as soon as it starts. I'll also frequent the many fan pages and tweet my opinion.
 
Its good to see you stand by your character and hope for the best though Babs.

Kind off hard for to drop  titles I don't like. Couse i live in Sweden and I have to order everything i want. Like Batman: Odyssey. Want to drop it, but I'll have to tell the comic book guy three months before. Couse he pre-orders them. So.. That sucks.

Im going to get yelled at for saying this, but I relate to what Babs is saying because I had a similar situation when Grant Morrison took over X-men.  He spun them around so much and I hated everything he did to them.  I dropped the title and (lucky for me Ultimate X-men came out) but didn't go back to them til 2nd coming.  I like them now, but I'm lost a little on some of the characters that are in the book because Im not familiar with them.  Lucky for me I look them up right here on the vine and read about who they are.  Spider-man does this all the time too.  Inconsistent.  I read to many books and spend to much money to read just BUT something just to buy it.  If it's bad it's dropped, I can pick it up again later if I hear it's good again.  Done it  before, and I'll do it again.  It's like a T.V. show.  If it's bad, I'm not gonna watch it just to watch it.  I made that mistake with the Sopranos.

That's kind of what happened with OMD/BND in Spider-Man book... 
I really wanted to like this Wonder Woman story arc, but I just couldn't get the point of it. 
I saw the DC Solicits for February yesterday and noticed that JMS's books are going to overlap with Superman meeting for the first time the new WW... 
That was what intrigued me about this new Wonder Woman now, but if the biggest WW fan I know (Babs) is not feeling the book that much then I don't think I will even try it.

I think about this a lot.   I go to the comic store, and I can only afford two books a week at the moment, and I have these titles I get regularly.  But then I see all these new and interesting titles with great art and i think, maybe I should get that instead.  I start thinking am I bored with this title?  Should I drop it?  Should I just get whatever suits my fancy at that moment?  Or should I stick with it because I am invested in the story?  And sometimes I start getting a comic for one reason, like I read the transformation of a character is awesome, but then I end up getting it every time it comes out just because I started buying it.  Another concern is what if I stop getting a comic and right after i stop it gets interesting.  I have to pause a reflect on why I get it.  And should I continue?  I have dropped a few books just because I cannot afford them, comforting myself with the thought that I will by them in trade, but I usually don't.  Again, because of the price.  I can't afford every comic, and I can't afford every book.  So I guess with me I starting wanting to branch out and check out other artists and stories, and sometimes feel stuck because I am invested in a comic's art and story already.  What would you do in this situation? 
So I guess i am saying, a lot of times, I don't know if my concerns over dropping a book or not are legitimate.  Maybe I haven't lost interest, its just that I want to check out some other comics.
 
I usually continue getting a comic until the story arc is over.  What is annoying is when the story arc seems to end prematurely.  Like the story they were setting up continues into another story arc.  It is hard to just suddenly drop a title.  It shouldn't be, but it is.  So I usually wait till an arc is done.

Posted by goldenkey
@Emerald Dragonfly: Quasada's greed?  You do realize he's trying make money for Marvel right?  There have been plenty of great ideas and great stories that have been written since he's been in charge.  Things have to change in order for things to be fresh.  If that wasn't the case then comics would still be written for an 8 year old audience, and our hero's would still be dealing with the quintessential "I want to rule the world" bad guy, and bank robbers.
Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I would stick around if it was my favorite series and is my favorite character just to see maybe it will get better. That is what I do with Amazing Spider-man. 

Posted by SUPER-MAN 23

I would stick with the series, that is if the writers do something crazy with the character (e.g. Batman wetting his pants).

What's happening with the new WW series? 
What's going wrong with it?

A good example is "Scrubs" 
the newest season ruined the whole show for me... 
Just keep it the way it was....
Posted by frogjitsu

Yeah, I buy to many comics at the moment, I tend to stick with the characters I've invested in most.  If I issues start piling up, and I'm hurting for money, I just drop the book.  No point in buying it if I can't be bothered to keep up with it.  I have so many unread comics lying around it's not even funny.

Posted by GraveSp

I totally read comics where I do not dig a particular arc, usually just to see how it turns out.  I tend to stick it out to see if the next arc or creative team does something better.  I read Batman Confidential and some arcs I thought were really good, but some arcs I just hate but I keep reading because usually the next arc is something really good for that particular book.

Posted by Texan75

I tend to try a new book or series and if the story or art suck drop it quickly.  However, I have been collecting DD, X-men and Avengers for such a long time that  I just can't drop them...even when the art and story suck...and trust me there have been a time or two for each book that I wanted to drop them.  For me it is the run of books and the characters that keep me in it.  But for droping some other books, I will do it in a heart beat.

Posted by piratehistorian

I read somewhere recently (I don't think it was on ComicVine) that JMS is stopping his work on monthly titles to write the sequel to Superman Earth One. The article made it sound like that someone else would be finishing the stories JMS had planned, but that might bring about enough of a chance to make the book better, or DC could use it to change things all together, depending on what sales have been like for this new run. So, at least something will be changing in the coming months, hopefully for the best.

Posted by afierce

Great video Babs! I think this is an important comic issue to be addressed.
 
It is very rare that I stick with a comic for over 6 issues straight. That is partly because comics can be pricey and I simply can't afford to buy everything every month and I like to jump around and try new things. But it's also because I have no problem dropping things if they simply don't keep my interest. I'm a consumer and I have to talk with my money - it's the only way the publishers are going to know what I like. Even if I love the character, it's important I stop reading the book if I don't like what's happening in it, or else it's never going to change.

Posted by Hamz

When a title no longer holds an appeal to you as the reader you drop it straight away. What point is there in torturing yourself each time you pick it up only to disappoint yourself by finding it still sucks. 
 
With Wonder Woman's recent issues in particular I heartily suggest dropping it. Complete garbage.

Posted by panzerjedi

I'm not a hardcore comic collector, so this may not apply to me, but being as such I now tend to wait until the trades come out. By then reviews and fan comments are, for the most part, out there and allows me to pick and choose which trade to buy and read.
 
I do remember back when Superman died and the whole return storyline came out, I stopped buying the individual comics because his return just felt way too drawn out. Haven't read a single Superman to this day.

Posted by Soldier zero

I think that's the problem with neverending stories and unaging characters, evry author has a different vision of them and tries to impose his/hers vision as the definitive. Usually I'm quite flexible and I try to keep things consistent writing out some of the most outrageous things as one time stunts or simply a case of temporary bad writing, but sometimes it's too much and I usually drop the book entirely.
 Personallly I droped lots of Marvel books around Grant Morrison's X-Men run (the whole E for Extinction thing) and I tried to keep myself up to speed reading some book every once in while and making lots of wiki searches.
I rarely go back to serie after dropping it because usually I feel that there are too much problems with the continuity, sometimes bad ideas are simply dropped or retconned (something that always piss me off) other times they come back with a vengeage and that's usually where I know that a line must be drawn.

Posted by Druid

I'll submit myself to 2-3 issues of torture at which point I stop collecting the title until they bring another writer in. 
 
This problem is almost inevitable with long-running titles or characters. The publisher brings in different writers and artists to keep the title interesting or appeal to new readers. Sometimes it works out and other times not so much.   

It's one of the reasons that some of my favorite books are those that ran about 60 or so issues and then ended by creator design.

Posted by The Mast

A great topic, Sara.
 
I look at it like I look at anything I am not directly involved in. If a sports team I love is doing poor, I give my opinion. I do not, however, ever lose sight of the fact that I am not a manager or coach. It's all easy to sit here saying a team should play this way or the couch should've done this, but if it were that easy, it would've been done. Even so, there's no guarantee that the theories or ideas an armchair fan comes up with will work.
 
I apply this to comics and I'd like to mention Daredevil. I have followed comics since I was six years old. Obviously I wasn't crazy smart enough to GET all the themes, but you get the point. Anyway, I now own all the issues and appearances of Daredevil, Surfer, Nova and a few other characters I love. Daredevil, though, has undergone so many changes as of late and, personally, I am not happy with any of them.
 
Shadowland was meant to be the pinnacle and massive downfall for Matt Murdock, but it ended up being a botched, poorly timed and spoiled-by-solicits even that simply looks silly in the wake of the darker tone the comic was so accustomed to. We have completely lost insight into the world of the man at the centre of it. Like the Kennedy Assassination, the two people supposed to be at the centre of all this shit are nowhere to be seen. All of this on top of re-numbering it for 12/13 issues and then changing it to Black Panther: The Man without Fear, as well as already telling us Matt will die and then announcing a Daredevil: Reborn series. It's messed up and, I think, as close to objectively poorly managed as you can get.
 
Now, I never wanted to be the guy who acts like he could do better. Marvel are a business and I know nothing about running one. Were it not for Marvel, I'd not even have Daredevil. I really don't wanna be THAT guy, that entitled douche who acts like HE knows better. I could write a Daredevil arc and people could hate it, you know? However...I do have to raise the issue:
 
If you, as a company, can take someone like me who has spend years of time and WAY over £1,000 on reading, collecting and loving this character, and turn them AWAY from the character and the book they've loved for most of their time on Earth, I'm gonna have a hard time believing that they are the ones who need to just accept it. I mean, Andy Diggle (Whose run I loved up until this shit) has said for us to not worry because they're respecting Murdock and they know what they're doing, but they're not. They clearly are not.
 
Do I drop it? Will I? It's a pisstake because if I do drop it when it becomes Black Panther: The Man without Fear, I'm gonna end up with a chunk of my numbered and ordered collection missing. People can act like it's not a big deal, that we don't HAVE to buy it, and they'd be right for saying the latter. However, ANY die hard fan knows it's simply not as easy as that. I have to either pay Marvel for doing what I consider to be butchery of what was their most consistently excellent book, or I have to see the pride of my comic collection end up with a gaping hole in it.
 
Like I said, I'm not about being that entitled douche, but sort it the fuck out, Marvel.

This in one of those cases when the character is treated with the least care for the sake of a story, that begin to be something different from what they are in the core, that has happened to me many times, like when I dropped Superman entirely for a time when the brought the red and blue stuff, and supergirl with the dream chapters after like ten issues. Now, I'm about to drop supes again now that he's going all philosophical so abruptly. 
 
Anyways, if it gets better again, there's always the trades to catch up.

Posted by Boots33

Interesting question.  Granted, I haven't read comics regularly since maybe 7 years ago, but when I did, I tended to stick it out when my favorite books when they went bad.  Most of the time, there's always going to be a lull in the creativity of any book at some point, but eventually something will come around that reaffirms your love for whatever book it is.  I particularly remember The Incredible Hulk being guilty of this phenomenon multiple times over my comic years. 
 
So yeah, although it may irk us to see our favorite comics take a downturn, I feel it's always better to stick it out and be there when things turn around, even if just to have the satisfaction of being there when it happens.

Could you please elaborate on the most recent WW series. Why it's so bad? 
 
I will never have a chance to read it so please spoil it for me as much as you can.
Edited by The Mast

The truth is, anyone who says, "Just drop it." has clearly never had a profound attachment to anything.
 
There are people who stay in abusive relationships out of genuine and undeniable love for what once was a loving, caring person for them. From the outside you can sit and logically say how stupid it is, but unless you're in it, you can't say it's that easy.
 
I'm sorry, I don't wanna act like I'm speaking FOR anyone, but that's the hardcore truth of it.
 
Also, you get people like that previous poster saying how the last season of Scrubs ruined the whole series. I don't get that. That's like me saying Shadowland ruined Born Again. I swear, I don't like what Marvel do sometimes, but come on.

@The Mast: Excellent reply, sir. I have to agree with you on most points. I can respect not wanting to drop the title for the sake of completion. I could draw the analogy with the "Fight-bolt" issues of Thunderbolts from years ago, however I was lucky enough for that to only last six issues. All while Avengers/Thunderbolts were being printed, so I had something to tide me over. I have those Fight-bolt issues, but only for the sake of having every issue in the series. 
Posted by ArtisticNeedham

 This is sort of besides the point of when to drop a comic but In the case of Wonder Woman, perhaps he wanted to take her to one extreme so that writers after him wouldn't be afraid to touch her character.  He said he heard someone mention that Wonder Woman was like his grandmother, continuing on to say he didn't want to see his grandmother kissing someone.  He mentioned that the character had become this untouchable character, you couldn't do anything with her without upsetting someone.  She couldn't make a joke, make a bad decision, stuff like that.  Maybe they felt that the best way to revive her character was to push her character to one extreme, so that later writer's extremes wouldn't be so bad.  So that now they can maybe take her back to her original origin but she wont be this untouchable thing.
 
But like I mentioned earlier, back on topic, I try to drop a comic if its not interesting me anymore.  With money limitations I can sometimes worry that I am buying something I should drop when I see something else I want to buy.  Should I just buy whatever comic interests me at the time and buy the full story in trades?  What I tend to do is buy the arc, and then drop it.  Even when I try to just buy two or three comics, to see where the story is going and stuff, I end up waiting till the arc is over.
I also tend to base my spending on the artists in the comics, and then stick around for the story.

Posted by Secret Identity

For me, I usually give it a chance for a while and then if things pick up i continue. If they don't it becomes a question of "why do I buy this book?". The best example for me is Green Arrow. I friggin' love Green Arrow and have for years now. However, when the Green Arrow series ended and the new Green Arrow/Black Canary series started I didn't enjoy it, it made a mess of some great characters and histories and relationships and just wasn't a good read at all. I stuck with it for a while (the first 15 issues or so) but just got to a point where I thought.... this is getting worse and worse and in no way better. And so I dropped it. 
 
I still kept up with the character though by reading what was on  the Green Arrow page here at ComicVine and looking at previews. And now that the new series has started (and is fantastic) I'll keep going with it and the character that I love.

I saw the long slow decline and stagnation from that began with the 'Mutant Massacre' storyline continued with the 'Fall of the Mutants' (an appropriately titled series that closed the good 80s decade of X-men and it's sister books and ushered in the poor 90s decade), and further slipped during 'Inferno'. At this time my reading became spotty, and somewhere during the 'X-tinction Agenda' I gave up on the X-men (and spinoffs) entirely.
 
And, I'm glad I did - I would have had to wade through a decade of inferior stories and art before the books would get good again.
 
I am a firm believer in the power of the dollar - DON'T BUY a comic you don't like. If, say, you love Wonder Woman - if you truly love that character - then you shouldn't buy it if you think the writing or art is inferior. Doing so is just an endorsement to the company (D.C. in this case) and creators to put out more of the same. Comic books are a product, and products are beholden to consumer demand.
 
I loved the X-men - more than most people I think. I loved the title so much I couldn't bear to see what it was becoming.

Posted by DEGRAAF

i definitely agree with you Babs, i really enjoyed your brutally honest, it sounded like something that you really have feelings towards and have an opinion about. 
 
Alot of people put down Skaar and i continued to follow him (i know thats not exactly the same) 
 
Also before the Brainiac story line in Superman, it felt like they were just throwing random stuf at him which i didnt enjoy

They completely changed the character. This isn't Princess Diana from Paradise Island who met Steve Trevor and founded the Justice League. I think that's why it's been so hard for fans to get into this series,  her character feels ret-conned.

Funny this came up. I had a friend who's not even into comics that asked me what was going on with Wonder Woman.
Posted by xkoenig
@Babs: Oh no, Sara! So this isn't just some temporary alternate universe that Diana is living in? I must admit I don't have a similar experience to compare this to, but it sounds like a lot of people had a hard time with the character change that Spider-Man went through in One More Day, and in what Grant Morrison did with the X-men. I personally think what Marvel did with Professor X, in gradually turning him from a Martin Luther King figure to an outcast hate figure is probably my own most similar experience. I read Avengers titles, but I used to read X-men way back in the 80s-90s. I can't get myself to look at the X-men any more because they just don't have that solid figurehead any more.

J. Micheal quit writing the Superman and Wonder Woman books. This news was mentioned in blastr from SyFy channel.
Posted by Fantasgasmic

I think a lot of people stop reading not due to a new creative team, but due to a certain story arc. What I do, depending on the severity of the suck, is drop the book, scour the internet for details about the plot points (so I know what is happening, but don't have to sit through the out-of-character writing, or horribly convoluted retcons, or plain bad storytelling/plot), and then pick it back up at the next arc. 
 
I find its more often that I stop reading a book (or in my case, collecting the trades, since I don't have the cash flow/local shop to get the books) because stuff happening in my real life. Work load, social obligations, personal life issues are more commonly the culprit and the result is thinking "i've got to trim down my reading load."

But he has said that someone else will continue on and finish this arc using his notes, so it looks like this will continue at least for a little bit. It looks like JMS has managed to upset yet another group of fans!! Ooops? What is he up to? I mean, I'm happy for writers to have cool, new ideas, but his work seems like it would be better suited to an alternate universe. He did a bad job with the Spidey-marriage, he is doing something weird here with WW, and also with Superman too! What's going on?? I loved Babylon 5 btw.
Posted by The Mast

Think of it this way, for all of you who simply say, "STOP BUYING."
 
You're a Spidey fan and you've been following for decades. You have most or all of his issues. Then, One More Day/Brand New Day happens. What do you do?
 
Do you honestly allow your collection to have a gap in it or do you buy them anyway? You and I both know that you'd buy them.
 
Also, the idea of consumer power is hazy. I mean, Marvel have shown it works by publically admitting their over-push of Deadpool was wrong. They've asked US which one we want to cancel. However, it only goes so far. So many people are collecters and will buy regardless. As long as the numbers come in, I don't know how much Marvel will care. I tend to think the only reason they're axeing either Deadpool Corps or Deadpool Team-Up is because the numbers were shameful.

Unfortunately, no one is really sure what the heck is going on with Diana. All we know is that she's only just discovering her powers, that she has no idea who she is, her Mother is dead, and there is no mention of any other DC character since JMS started writing. It's all very weird and feels very detached from what's going on in the rest of the DCU.

When a creative teams plays hoo haw with a book i love reading, I dump it, often even permanently. I will not stand for having a book / icon I love to read about get butchered. when a publishing company does too much hoo haw. I dump em too and quit reading any comibook they publish. There are millions of comicbook titles out there. there is always the space and the possibility that i'llfind a new tittle to love.
 
and on that note FUCK Marvel, fuck DC and Dark Horse right up the bum bum.

so true. i love ASM, and i HATED those black cat issues in the early 600s, but im not going to have my collection have a 2 or 3 issue gap because im upset about one little thing. thats lame. 
 
plus im with babs, its a loyalty thing. i love spider-man, i cant not read it. i stick with it through thick and thin. and you know whats worse than wasting a few dollars on some issues you dont like? missing an AMAZING story because you thought it MIGHT be lame. the worst. 
 
now if youre buying a whole series that you just hate, and its been issues and issues later and the money is adding up, thats something else. if youve hated the past 20 issues of ASM, drop it. thats just dumb to keep buying it and keep complaining about it.

I just dropped it ....when Spawn hitted #100 and after that cool thing I was telling myself , this is ending ....finally a superhero comic book with an end , then it kept going and became one more of the never ending bunch so I just didnt care for it anymore , dont know what happened to it  I never looked back .... and this is the problem I think with super hero comics , you have to permanently end them if not garbage will taint the character and confusion will arise and then you have hundreds of new beginnings that   now theres no the real origin ..... granted Im not a huge comic book collector/reader

I stopped collecting comic books on a regular basis when it came the "Amazons Attack!" mini series and "The Trials of Shazam!" storyline. Both of these character are in my top 3 of DC Comic Books favorites. Since then, I just haven't "recovered" and found myself each time more and more uninterested in what it's been done with them.
 
I tried to start once again with Wonder Woman and JMS on her, but really, couldn't get her.

Posted by xkoenig
@zombietag:  So how do you rate Spidey in the time since One More Day? Has he come back to a similar place to where he was before the Mephisto story? Is the marriage thing too big a change for people to get over? I just picked up #648 and I loved it, but I only got in now because I was uncertain about the whole BND saga. This seems like a clean slate and a good place to get back to the real Peter Parker.
Posted by DMC

Well that wasn't the answer I was expecting from you at all Babs, good to know you're sticking with WW even though you don't like it.   Looks like we're both in the same boat.....kind of.......but for me, it's Power Girl. 
 
I loved Jimmy & Amanda's run on the series, not that it was perfect mind you. Overall I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the types of stories (most of them) they told, it was great stuff! So of course I had my doubts about Winnick & Basri's run and for the most part I've not been impressed, but I'll continue to read PG because 
a) this book needs all the sales it can get to stay alive
b) I want to see the original goals of the book come to some fruition (supporting cast, good rouges gallery, etc), for this book to accomplish something that will actually last and be a part of the PGU, that won't be thrown away or forgotten. Of course this doesn't happen overnight but the longer this book stays alive, the more opportunities for writers to meet these goals and (hopefully) give them some "polish". 
 
I will admit though that I've come around a bit to Basri's artwork and issue #17 was pretty good.
