The time has come once again for me to take a hard look at my pull-list and make some changes. As I bid farewell to some series, I welcome new ones into the fold all the while making note of others that are on the verge of making an exit in the near future if they don’t shape up, series that are in the Danger Zone. Without further ado:
New 52: Futures End – It failed to live up to my expectations and it was a fairly easy decision to drop since it is a weekly series and taking four valuable spots each month.
Justice League 3000 – A series that started with such promise seems to be just spinning its wheels in place. I have a feeling that it might not be long for this world either.
Amazing X-Men – I have zero interest in the World War Wendigo arc so I’m ending my time with this series now. Maybe I’ll pick it back up if the next arc catches my interest.
Wolverine and the X-Men – A series that has lost its charm and has lost any excitement that I once had for it.
All-New Doop – A superfluous title that I can’t come up with a good reason to continue with.
Avengers Undercover – This follow-up to Avengers Arena is missing that special spark that the previous volume had. Not even throwing in one of my favourite villains in the form of Baron Zemo could save it.
Five Ghosts – The latest arc ended and I’ve decided that it is the perfect jumping off point.
Angel & Faith – It pales in comparison to the previous volume and I could never really get into it. Angel and Faith are better when they are together rather than splitting them apart, that is for sure.
The Woods – An intriguing concept, some neat character work, and some stellar art has won me over.
Rai – Speaking of stellar art, this series is bountiful with it.
Lumberjanes – Quirky, charming, and just plain fun.
Doctor Spektor – A four issue mini-series written by Mark Waid impressed me with its first issue.
Batwoman – This book has not been the same since J.H. Williams left.
Aquaman – The same can be said for this book and the departure of Geoff Johns.
Supergirl – Little plot progression and the character’s more entertaining appearances in Red Lanterns has made this book almost pointless.
Justice League United – I had big time levels of anticipation for this title but it has not reached said levels yet.
Moon Knight – A new creative team is on the horizon and they have me cautious about this book’s future.
X-Men – And the same can be said about this series too.
Indestructible – Losing my attention with each subsequent issue.
