  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

Are there any comics you gave up on reading?
« on: May 07, 2016, 11:14:21 pm »
Are any comics that you had read that you have given up on? I gave up on Harley Quinn. The story is terrible now. When she got her gang of Harleys, the comic wasn't so good anymore. I quit buying it. I only bought the first 3 issues of Zodaic Starforce & I didn't like it at all. Sadly I'm not big fan of Jem & The Holograms now. The new story line that they had was crazy. And the art much better in the beginning. Even the Lumberjanes v hanged artists for some of the issues. So now when the solicitations come I really only for Archie by Mark Waid  & Jughead by Chip. And the Betty & Veronica reboot. I also must buy Saga. I love it.

There may be hardly a month that goes by that I don't give up on reading some title or titles, because I'm always adding new things to my list, so older comics series where my initial interest has faded after some time need to be 'pruned' from my reading list to make way for new ones.

All the time. I usually try to at least make it through one issue to give a new series a try but if the art is too bad or the story too confusing I give up early. The series I gave up recently was New Romancer after 3 issues and Patsy Walker Hellcat after 5 or 6 issues. Others I just put on "hold" for when I'm in the mood for them (i.e. on a long weekend and not after a long day of work. They are more "serious" and require me to pay attention more or have a lot of wordy dialogue. Reading them is work.) These include Saga, iZombie, Descender, Fables, Locke & Key, Southern Bastards, The Sixth Gun. Archie requires practically no work which is why I like it. I spend all day "analyzing" things. Sometimes my brain just needs a break.

The last two issue of Bat Girl had a different artist which I didn't like. Bring back Babbs Tarr. She's a great artist.

I need to catch up on my Mega Man by hunting down the final issues they had, after completing The Ultimate Betrayal arc, I forgot to read the Worlds Unite arc, so I have to fish out for back issues.

Can't say I blame you. You probably already read practically all the good one.

You can just skip the crossover and go straight to the last 3 issues. I did and it doesn't feel like there's anything missing in between there.
I'd be shocked if MM ever actually came back. I don't think it'll happen. I doubt the last three issues will be collected in trade paperback, either.

They cancelled the MEGA MAN MASTER EDITION VOLUME 1 collection, which would have been in the Best of Archie Comics format.

I gave up on reading the rebooted Archie after issue #1 as well as the rebooted Jughead after issue #1.

I started reading a comic book called "Bitch Planet" by Kelly DeConnick. I really thought I would enjoy it at first, but then it got pretty weird and it has to get weird for me to think it is weird.

I gave up on reading the rebooted Jughead after issue #4 because it was drawn like crap as well as the stories.  >:(

I gave up on Jughead after the first issue. I was never able to make it through anymore issues until Jughead #7 which I loved.

I LOVE Bitch Planet  :)  I am not sure whether I should give up on Jem though...

I gave Bitch Planet a try and I didn't hate it or anything like that, but it is a little weird.

I'm the opposite. Love Jem but Bitch Planet was too weird for me.
