Back To Basics

You know what I haven't posted in a long time?  Green Lantern stuff!  I've forgotten my roots, man!

I...I miss stuff like this.  Guy flying through space eating doughnuts, and ragging on Kyle.  The cameraderie.  The Black and Green.  The snark from Guy, the pomposity from Hal, the eye-rolling from John, the earnestness of Kyle.  The Four Musketeers. 

It just hasn't been the same in a while.

Yeah, DC hasn't been that kind of fun for a while now.

DC has been on the grim and gritty side, hasn't it. Marvel on the other hand has a whole lot of actual books that are... fun!

Some of my favorite books, including a few of my current pull list, have lots of fun bonding moments. That's what makes something a treat to read. I think the problem is that too many writers are trying to be remembered for epic stories which lack the impact they want because they don't have the weight of those relationships. In many cases you'd never guess it was there if you're a first time reader. So many recent stories feel very generic and boring.

I like variety, from the fun mixed with serious of Saga to the dark and gritty Lazarus. But for recurring superhero comics, fun needs to be part of it. It's a lot harder to slog through a relentless serious/dark comic series than it is to read a serious superhero story. At least balance out the serious books with fun ones. Gotham Academy and Harley are fun. Starfire is light, but almost too light. You still need substance. DC used to do a good job balancing their comics for tone, but not so much, anymore.

Variety is key but sadly a lot of recent books seem to exclude one--usually the bonding--for the action/drama, etc. I find myself bored with a lot of crossovers where you can't tell if anyone is supposed to like anyone because their fighting. In some cases extremely out of character actions are made just to create a false sense of drama. But when I read other books with the same characters or haven't seen those characters interact for more than a couple pages it makes me want to read the new stuff less. It really makes me appreciate those that make the effort more.

God, am I sick of never-ending crossovers!
