    This was pretty much my beef with Kingdom Come.

    Pretty much agree with everything you just said re TWD. Even since my last post in this thread, my feelings towards it have become more negative. I just don't like Kirkman's writing and I'm not crazy about Adlard's work either. Add to that the fact that theres just no real fun to be found in reading the story (I know, how can you expect fun in a ZA story? Well, Dawn of the Dead is a fun movie) and you get to where I'm at - done. I've got my 7 HC volumes up on kajiji right now.

    Hawkeye, Daredevil.

    Very well written, sometimes stunning art. Just not into them.

    I think Bendis is definitely hit or miss for a lot of people. I tried to read his Guardians of the Galaxy and I just couldn't get into it. On the other hand I've just read the first volume of his Daredevil run and I'm finding it stellar so far.

    Anything with Batman & Wolverine,sorry can't take them yet I tolerate them in the team books I read yet ironically I really liked Dark Claw from Amalgam back in the day lol.

    Joss Whedon's x-men for me. I tried a few times as my flatmate at the time was really into it but na....just couldn't. I felt like I should be liking it even as I was reading it but I just didn't, strange

    I really enjoyed Hellblazer and am thoroughly disappointed in the New 52 change. "Constantine" is really more of a comic WITH John Constantine in it as opposed to a comic ABOUT John Constantine.

    Of course, DC also messed up Deathstroke in the N52, so I didn't really expect much.

    Recently? Peter Panzerfaust

    The concept has so much potential but the writing comes off as some one scripting a pitch for a TV show.

    Hickman's Avengers. I'm a big fan of his creator-owned work but his Avengers run leaves me a little cold. The ideas are there but the characterisation is very cold.

    I agree. It's the opposite problem of Bendis' Avengers, which had superb character work but flimsy plotting.

    I agree 100 %. I don't think he's a bad writer, but the books of his I've liked the most have been solo tales- Daredevil, Alias- and I think art had a lot to do with that.
    I don't like his team book runs. There were moments I liked in New Avengers, especially (once again) Yu's work on a few issues, and give the man credit for bringing Luke Cage back to the spotlight, but I don't think his strengths as a writer are in large casts or earth shattering events- which seem to be all he does anymore after an extraordinarily long, drawn out build up which loses all steam before the climax.

    but damn it, he gets to work with some fantastic artists.
