    Has anyone made the switch to mostly Independents? I have, as of this week. The last straw was my realization that, as far as I'm concerned, both Gwenpool and Deadpool have jumped the shark, and Batman has committed the sin of being sleep-inducingly boring.

I've given up on Deadpool until the current writer Gerry Duggan leaves. Deadpool has kind of become a p*ssy in recent years. He doesn't have the bite he used to.

I think making him a member of every team in the Marvel Universe has something to do with it.

    I'm still buying Black Bolt, Luke Cage because they haven't disappointed me yet. From DC I'm still buying Aquaman, Future Quest, and the Wild Storm. But that's it from the Big 2.

    My pull list now says "any" from Alterna and "any" from Titan, the two extremes as far as price, with the former being published on newsprint and sold for under two dollars, the latter being crammed with high quality pages and being sold for six dollars. Plus I'm getting a bunch of random titles I just happen to like, for example Red Dog, Noble, and Keyser Soze.

    Definitely a new phase for me. In the case of Alterna and Titan - brand loyalty! I used to have that for Marvel back in the 70s. Not any more by a long shot. But Alterna and Titan have captured my imagination and in very different ways.

    Has anyone else made the switch or been haunted by the prospect of doing so?

I think the independent stuff I read

Darkhorse: Angel, Buffy, all of the Hellboy related stuff, anything else written by Mike Mignola (Baltimore, Joe Golem etc), Conan

Dynamite: Red Sonja

IDW: Orphan Black

But I'm not up to date on a lot of them
