I just finished reading Hulk Gray,Hawkman Rise of the Golden Eagle and The Return of Barry Allen.

All were fantastic character driven stories which really reminded me that no matter how much I stray away from them at times,I will always love superhero comics and all the fantastic elements that come with them.

Superheroes are the backbone of the industry for a reason.

Love 'em too, but lately I'm getting more than a little bored with them.

So many people give superhero comics hell, but there are so many cases where it isn't at all deserved.

I've been reading Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus #1.
That is some awesome early 70s action. Superheroics at its finest.

I got bored a couple years ago but eventually came back.

When I see guys like Morrison,Johns,Brubaker,Fraction and others just to name a few, putting their characters through new situations and really doing new things with them,I get psyched.

Superheroes and the Wild West are America's contribution to the Mythological landscape.

EDIT: Yeah, maybe I'll not say that. This thread is already going to go a certain way, no need for me to accelerate it on its way.

I had a moment like this recently, too... it was actually secret invasion that made me realize how much I love a well done superhero story....

the key there is well done story. the fact that it was a superhero story makes it all the more awesome.

Everything adapts or dies, and superheroes have managed to adapt. The world has loved superhero stories ever since Gilgamesh in x-thousand BCE. As long as they keep changing with the times, superheroes will never go out of style.

Totally agreed. Not to say I have not been burned out at one point. But the ones that I do read make me very happy. And the fact that some of my favorite charecters are now being written well, makes it all the sweeter.

Superheroes are where it's at. I'll take the worst superhero book over a mediocre anything else-book any day. There's always at least something to like.

I go through fairly long periods of time where I don't get to read my stack of comics.

But every time I do dive back in I'm quickly reminded why I love them.

Eh, not always true. But I do see your point. Oh, and welcome.

I never thought I'd say this, but... I'm almost starting to miss Goddard.
