Isn't it just? Also, many of the guys from Image's early days are now back at Marvel & DC. Then you have some of the guys who made 90s Marvel so bad now running things at DC. No surprise there.


From DC I regularly buy: Unwritten (yes it's Verigo but still), Animal Man, Batman & Batwoman (but they may be dropped soon for $$ reasons), & Green Arrow. Their quality books are very few and far between, or have been cancelled/ended.

I'll be dropping Swamp Thing and Action Comics when the respective creative teams leave. Maybe picking up Superman Unchained (such a dumb name).


But on another forum someone posted a poll if you prefer Marvel to DC. I found it funny that so many people had a definitive answer. My attitude is: it depends on who is writing what title and when? Right now? Image is my fave. Last year? Might have been Marvel, DC before that. Depends.
