Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"I read the last two issues of Batman (68 and 69), and I hate to say it, but I don't think this book is doing anything for me anymore. 69 was the conclusion of this story arc, which was just way too long. It may have taken only a couple months,…"

"Of those, the only one I'm reading is Supergirl, although Books of Magic is a comic I'll probably take a look at in trades. (Which wouldn't be the case for Harry Potter. But I'm sure JK Rowling doesn't need me.)Catwoman and…"

"I recently dropped: BOOKS OF MAGIC (Would rather DC put out a Harry Potter book!) SUPERGIRL CATWOMAN (a Bat-less Cat is not that interesting) JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY (too many JL books!) SHURI (should be with her brother, not apart) UNSTOPPABLE WASP…"

Jeff of Earth-J replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"Aquaman, eh? Let's see... I bought and read issues #43-44 and liked them well enough, then I forgot to read #45 and forgot to buy #46. Yesterday I bought #46-47 and was planning to read them in a sitting sometime soon, but you're comments…"

Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod) replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"Despite my best intentions, I wound up reading all of the first arc of the DeConnick/Rocha Aquaman. After dropping it after the second issue of the arc (issue 44), I found myself in a comic shop with nothing to buy, and decided to try issues 45 and…"

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"I have to say that recent events have led to a temporary spending hold-back for me. It may be the best thing that has ever happened to my comics collecting. I am no longer buying up books that I won't realistically read. I had never really…"

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"Travis, I read the last two issues of Justice League earlier today. Sigh. Yeah, the whole "thing you never knew about before now" is played out again in this book with a meeting (or series of meetings) between J'onn J'onnz and…"

"You should consider hopping onto Wonder Woman. It's a great title with G. Willow Wilson's writing."

ClarkKent_DC replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"With G. Willow Wilson having moved to DC to do Wonder Woman, that has mean her time doing Ms. Marvel has come to an end. That makes a great jumping-off point for me."

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"I think Tom King's Batman has had some pretty bright spots in it with a few real dud issues in it. I agree that he does seem to have a penchant for dragging stories out (none quite as pronounced as Heroes in Crisis, but I'm a glutton for…"

Travis Herrick (Modular Mod) replied to Alan M.'s discussion On the Chopping Block
"For me, I'm also dropping Justice League. How Scott Snyder can take this great line-up of heroes and villains and make it so boring, is beyond me. I wish I was interested in all of the Dark Metal crap as he is. Also, doesn't…"

Richard Willis replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
"I remember that Neil Gaiman was hired to write the English script for the dubbed version of  the Princess Mononoke anime. The problem is that translators are not usually professional writers, so a dry translation is often less than…"

Jeff of Earth-J replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
"When I was in high school, I became interested in reading the classics. We read some (such as David Copperfield, Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird) in class, but others I had to read on my own. One of the books I chose to read on my own was…"

"MORE POE: Edgar Allan Poe wrote much more than the horror and detective stories and poems for which he is primarily known. A smear campaign by a literary enemy kept him from being read for many years after his death. When he did become popular…"
