    Nah, some girl in my class sends them to me. We had an assignment a few weeks back to write something dark and so we just kept writing.

    I do make some stories but they tend to be more a bit more "out there"

    So are there any first arcs that are finished in the DCnU? Are there any resources from which I can find how long the story arcs are?

    There are indeed! I just cannot remember any of them for the life of me. It's been a VERY long day.

    EDIT: Green Lantern just finished it's first arc and Batgirl #1-4 is an arc. Both I highly recommend.

    The first arc of Mister Terrific has finished but to be honest I didnt think it was any good.

    I got Mr. Terrific #4 and I was like ... who thought this was a good idea?
    I brought the last issue but after reading #4, I'm not too eager to read it. Man the 1st issue was pretty good and they've been dropping the ball.

    Still better then Green Arrow though. I dropped that mess at issue 2.

    Batgirl finished it's first arc last month, I believe.

    The series started of so well I thought. It had great ideas but I think the execution was and is pretty bad. I have issue 5 and I am a little worried about reading it so I saved it for last. I think I am going to drop it if I am not happy with this issue Im just not sure what to replace it with yet.


    @wyokid, did you read Mega Man yet? I think it's the best issue so far.

    Wyokid, have you heard I See Stars's new song? =o It's pretty good until just before 3:00 where there's some heavy auto-tuning. They're definitely incorporating a lot more electronics on this new album. I don't get why they would post new stuff though; the album doesn't come out for over year. Lol.

    Guys, I need to tap into the collective sagely wisdom of the Ultimate Forum. (God help us all.)

    When your tastes in comics change, and you find that you no longer enjoy a particular series that you've subscribed to for years, do you drop the title immediately, or wait for a jumping-off point?

    See, I've read this book for years, but I've matured as a reader since I first pulled it, and it winds up at the bottom of my reading list every month. I read my other books first, then I look at this one like "Oh, yeah. You again. Ugh."

    I thought for some time that the book had dipped in quality somehow, but after revisiting the early issues that I started with, I found that the book has always been this way. It's me that's changed, and the new me thinks this book is crap.

    So now I'm spending $4 a month on a book I don't like, and I've got probably $240 worth of back issues I'll never care to read again.

    On the other hand...

    ...this series is in the middle of a major storyline, and is only a few months away from a change in writers, which will present me with a clean jumping-off point.

    I'm going to feel really weird about dropping this book so abruptly after I've followed it religiously for years. I'm thinking a clean jump-off point would make the transition a little easier to swallow.

    What do you guys think?

    Their new album comes out on the 13th in March dude. Lol

    I'm looking up the song now.

    EDIT: OMFG! That is fucking amazing!

    I have dropped 2 books while reading about 5-10 pages so for me it's not a problem to drop a book I have no interest in.

    It sounds to me that you want to finish this last arc up though so I say go for it. At least this way if you do want to get rid of the comics you can give someone a complete set of arcs.

    If it really gets to the point where you cant even finish an issue they I would have to tell you to just end it now and move on.
