Seeing a trend here...

Seeing a trend here...

So...

@Hal(Jordan) has a Green Lantern avi.

@Jay(Garrick) has a new-ish looking Flash avi.

 

Definite DC-related trend going here... I may have to change my name to Bruce.

Liz Lemon breaks the trend.... And I don't know who Amanda is.  Edit: And Felicia Hardy is Marvel.

That's my era. When comics looked like comics.

@MarkJFine
It's from the newest redesign of Spider-Man 2099.

Ah. Ok.

 

I kinda gave up on Spider-Man after the Doc Oc swap thing, killing off Peter Parker, Miles Morales, then ultimately brought him back a year after issue 700 with all the dot-issues.

 

All these reboots get to be a bit much. DC's got it's share rebooting Superman with Bendis on the team.

Re: Seeing a trend here...

I really enjoyed Superior Spider-Man for what it was and I also love Miles Morales, but I'll always be a Peter Parker guy.

I wasn't reading Superman before Bendis took over; I'm hoping that he has something interesting to bring to the table. Superman has been pretty stale in his own books for a while now.

Re: Seeing a trend here...

Not gonna lie. DC kinda went full-on crazy starting with the New 52 reboots, only having to start it all over again with Rebirth. Reboot-mania.

 

Having read these things since the 60's (and even had some older issues going back to the 40s that I really wish I had on paper now) I have to say the artwork improved tremendously, but at the expense of good, concise (even if it's cheesy) story telling.

 

Nowadays, everything's a 3-6 issue arc (read: protracted drama) that you half-forget what's going on before the next issue's even released two weeks later. Back in the day they were like 40-60 pages each of a complete story and came out weekly, vice 20 pages bi-weekly now. Not even going to say a word about the per-issue cost.

 

And yes, Superman's been stale since they killed him off the first time in '92.
