Reply Subj: Question of the Week- Overrated comics...

    Last week we talked about underrated comics of the 80's and 90's so it's only fair that we talk about overrated comics this week.

    What comics did you buy in the 80's or 90's that were overrated?

    What comics from this time period have you read since then and found they haven't aged well or were over-hyped?

I think the one that really sticks out for me is The Dark Knight Returns. I consider many Frank Miller stories of the 1980s to be some of my favorite comics of all time but this book at least as a story doesn't quite hold up for me. The art still blows me away to this day and there are some fantastic moments but I don't find it that enjoyable of a read. I can definitely see how groundbreaking it would have been in 1986 and I think part of the critical acclaim comes from that.
