Man that Sucked...(the lame comics thread)
Hey, with almost sixty long boxes and around 20,000 funny books, I've bought some turds. I'll admit it.
Limited series that didn't need to be.
Ongoing series that were mercifully short.
Smaller companies struggling to get started with subpar retreads of classic heroes.
For instance. After Avengers West Coast finished it's run, the main Avengers called the West Coasters in for a little meeting and said "Hey. We are shutting down the West Coast Compound. You have no say in it..." and this sufficiently ticked the WCA off enough to start FORCE WORKS. Lamely named because the use of force gets the job done. Force Works. Get it? U.S. Agent got a superbly lame new costume and a bunch of other lame stuff happened. Lame.
Or how about Fantastic Force? A F4 spin off title with all the rejects from the Fantastic Four who decided to join together like Layla, the Human Torch's Skrull wife, and some other lame people. Lame.
Then there was the guy what started off in Spider-Man books, that was basically a rip off of Spawn with a possesed cape/costume who was from a couple of years in the future and was trying to track down his own murderer or some crap. LAME.
There are more to be sure. Plenty more. So what's clogging up your long boxes?
