Just a thought...
I have been reading two books recently that made me angry, not the books themselves but what happened to the characters after the runs had ended. the 1st was Planet/WWhulk and the other was Brubaker's run on Catwoman.
I love comics, don't get me wrong and I really liked the writing and character development in both, especially the Hulk since he was never a fav of mine considering most of the time he was big dumb and bounced from state to state getting into fights he didn't want (yawn!) and Catwoman was great in watching how engaging she is and to a large degree still is a great anti - heroine. but then the title (in the case of the Hulk) changes hands or (in the case of Catwoman) is used in a different title, and BAM! all the character development and work is washed down the drain and is replaced by the same tired old crap that made them uninteresting.
In the case of the hulk, the new creative team comes in, ignores all the events that led up to the hand off, and just go back to so many tired and used up ideas, and in the case of Catwoman, the evolution of that character gets cheapened by saying that she would always have been a criminal and a deviant (which i disagree, many other good writers before bru had her going in a similar direction) had it not been for that inane plot device used in identity crisis, the "zatanna mind wipe"
There a many many more examples of this crap, crap I wish would end, the EIC's of both company's enforce stupid editorial edicts such as Marvel's OMD, and DiDio Slapping "Crisis" on just about anything so he can sell books, but neither has the balls stay the course with something thats actually good, Loeb is such a "yes Man" that i'm sure if he were told, this is how the Hulk is now, we would at least have some continuity of character (sub par IMO, but at least continuity) and with Catwoman, i'm tired of seeing her in one comic as a hero then in someone elses title acting like a raving loon.
it cheapens the medium, and before anyone says, well it sells books, thats a cheap response, because yeah Rulk is selling ONLY and i mean ONLY because of the art not because of any engaging plot or story.
