Laura Hudson says it better than I can

I haven't felt much like reading comics lately.  Part of the reason is my confusion over the DC reboot.  The other reason is expressed so well by Laura Hudson over at Comics Alliance.


And what about some wisdom from the mouth of babes?  There's a reason cartoons based on comics are so popular, and part of that reason is because TV producers have to appeal to a wider audience than comics.

Honestly, DC, I don't know what's going on over there.  You're making reading comics a chore, and I don't want to work to be entertained.  Escapism is why I read comics in the first place.  I've dropped all my books except Stormwatch, which I am hanging onto out of sheer loyalty to my favorite hero, Martian Manhunter.

Give me some good stories, some heroes to look up to, a couple of cool fight scenes, a little bit of humor, and that's all I want out of my comics.

Come here, old JLI trades...I need you...
