Since today's solicitations list a Power Girl trade paperback (on sale April 17) of issues 1-6, issue 7 is the perfect jumping-on point for me. Perfect timing, what with me realizing JLA looks like an unending horrorshow.Less angst, more fun!

I wonder are these projects a way to 'mop up' readers just like you, who have an allegiance to certain periods of X-men continuity, but have long been put off by the continuous recycling of ideas, 'bold new directions' and inevitable resets?
The real funny thing is that I'm not particularly a fan of that era, but the "real" x-titles left me behind years ago. I do miss the characters, though, and X-Men Forever is a comforable fit for me.
I'm finally giving Gotham City Sirens the axe. It's been iffy for a long time. The most recent issue did nothing to convince me that I want to keep reading it and was a done-in-one so I'm not leaving in the middle of a story.
Detective Comics is still borderline for me.
