So, yeah.  I created a group for the Serpent Society a while ago out of boredom, and whenever I look on there and see me as the only member, it makes me sad.  :( So, everyone should join to make me a happy li'l Nyssie.  :)


ANYWAY, to keep on topic, I have this dilemma.  I never buy comics anymore.  Before, I was in a comic frenzy, and I constantly bought stuff.  I even bought a few series REGULARLY, which is weird for me because I usually only used to buy comics that had my favies in it.  But, I started buying Cable & Deadpool, New Thunderbolts, New X-Men, the Madrox mini, X-Men: The End, etc.  But, now I find myself bored with them and I've stopped reading them.  Last year, there was a time where ALL my favorite characters returned, so that kind of gave me a burst of energy.  Anaconda appeared in both Captain America and Cable & Deadpool, Thumbelina appeared in the X-Force mini, Cargill appeared in X-Men: The End, but now they've all disappeared.  The BAD Girls are supposed to appear in Cable & Deadpool soon, which has sparked my interest up a little bit, but I guess it's just because I like such obscure characters (who are usually villains, at that).  Anyway, I'm going to try to get back in with New X-Factor when it premiers but I even have my doubts about continuing on with that, because I know I'll eventually get bored, no matter how much I love Madrox (the fact that Siryn and M in it also make me a bit iffy).  I don't know, I'm just ranting.
I just think they need to bring back some of the good ol' villains.  I hear people mentioning how they should "make new villains instead of recycling the old ones", umm, that's boring.  They have so much they can do with obscure villains like the Kleinstock Brothers or the original Four Horsemen or the Marauders, etc.  ME NO WANT CHANGE!  Thank you, that is all.

lisacharly: A betrayal of the darkest kind! And all that.

I'm a bit peeved right now. Three weeks ago, Mr. Claremont promised the return of Black Tom. Me, being the excitable, eternally optimistic fangirl I am, got spazzishly happy, with the whole 'yay, Tom's back and he's written by Claremont!'. Previews came out today.

Jesus screw it sideways with a rusty shovel, it's like Austen all over again.

I realize there is a similar post in blacktomfans. But normally, I don't spew hateful bile there. I'll save that for here.

lisacharly: Stop killing the B-list already!

No journals and we already have six frequent customers. Quite a tally.

Alright, so, deaths in comics. It's not deaths that bug me. I'm all for the occasional tear-jerking goodbye, the death that has a lasting repercussion and brings the team to their knees.

It's deaths done to make a story seem serious that piss me off. Like Northstar's death in Wolverine. What the hell was up with that? At least Nunzio and Christina did something interesting with it afterwards, but we all know gutting JP was thrown in just to make that Wolverine arc seems serious. This bugs me. If it had been a good, decent death, that's one thing. But instead, it was just to add 'impact'.

Furthermore, it's not just Marvel doing this - the solicits for The Intimates #10 suggest death as well (I think it's Sparky or Kefong), probably to help save the book from the bad sales it's getting. Does the public honestly go for deaths like this? Will killing off some high-school kid really help the series where the excellent writing didn't?

I find it strange that instead of character development or even MEANINGFUL deaths, we just seem to get random deaths.

Rant over. For now.
