> Any thoughts?

Nothing to say, really, except the following: If you're not enjoying a title, you're doing the right thing by dropping it. Don't support anything out of just mere "loyalty" if you're not satisfied by it. Comics have become an expensive hobby and you should only spend your money on those that really meet your expectations for entertainment.
You're good on your way. I dropped all DC and Marvel titles at this point with the only exception of Green Lantern which I will keep reading till issue #25, which features the end of the Sinestro Corps saga. After that, I'll keep only reading all those Indy titles I already subscribed. I'm having a blast with these!

Agreed. I dropped all Marvel titles except Spider-Girl with the advent of Civil War, mainly because I decided I wasn't going to buy crossovers. I had intentions to go back afterwards, but even after that mini was over, every main title is still about it, bleh. I've tried and will try the odd issue here and there (such as the upcoming TWELVE, but mostly I'm done). With DC, I'm down to about 4 now: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (high hopes with the new writer), JSA, ATOM, Black Canary/Green Arrow. I might be trying the new Outsiders and Wonder Woman by Simone.

Sadly, as a superhero comics reader, there really isn't much independent comics that appeal to me. I get the Phantom and Black Coat comes out too infrequently. The Weapon mini was interesting. Halfway looking forward to SUPERPOWERS and ISSUE AFTER NEXT, but like the THE TWELVE, I think SUPERPOWERS will be more in the vein of TERRA OBSCURA where they try to be more Alan Moore-lite realistic instead of just telling some great action stories and remaining true to the original characters. You know, heroes being heroic and fighting the bad guys. As my website shows, there are hundreds of equally fascinating bad guys of the golden-age to choose from that are in the public domain.
