I hate Archie comics, and any title associated with him and his stupid friends. It always irritated me that he had the same last name as me :(

Since this could easily turn into a DC or Marvel sucks thread, I'll pick my least favorite Marvel Comic currently. I've said it before and I'll say it again...Young X-Men.

Not even the beginning with Byrne doing the stories? I thought those were fantastic!

My least favorite title? I'm going to say Speedball. Lame, very lame.

Currently I can't stand anything written by Chris Claremont, especially New Exiles. His old stuff is awesome, but his mega-melodramatic style does not translate in 2008. It's a shame because I always thought Psylocke was an interesting character.

Young X-Men is pretty godawful as well. It sucks that New X-Men was replaced with this inferior work.

I also hate Superman.

There. I said it.

some relatively recent titles I've been severely disappointed with are:

Madame Mirage
New X-Men
Humberto Ramos's art, especially his work on Wolverine and X-Men
and The Order...god, that title blew chunks hard

Crying

I love the New Universe titles (OK, maybe not Nightmask)... I have every single issue ever published. Cool

Back to the topic...

I hated the deluge of "bad girl" titles to come out of the late 1990s. It got so bad that I quit comics for a coupla years.

Laughing Applause I agree with everyone!!! (even Alpha Flight!! I got them when the first came out and read all of the Byrne run and could never get into it.)

I really like Aparo's Aquaman from the late 60's. I have a few and would really like to get more of them.



I know I'm going to get flack for this, but I really don't like Clarmonte's X-MEN. I've never read Byrne's run on the title and would really like to after hearing all the raves about it, but I've read much of the stuff that came afterward and just find it boring and annoying.

The other VERY popular title that I really wanted to like and just didn't was the SANDMAN. I've read every book up until the last book, and I took the last book out of the library and kept it for 2 weeks but just couldn't bring myself to reading it. So I don't know how it ends and I just don't care.

Can't speak much for the past. But I currently don't like Moon Knight, Young X-Men, and I'm getting weary of the X-Men Legacy/Manifest Destiny stories. And the art for Uncanny X-Men is slowly turning me off.

Current: DC - Final Crisis, Marvel - Skaar

Past: DC - Steel (before Priest), Marvel - Spider-Man books post Clone Saga


Others mentioned:

The Order - I dropped that quick. Seems like it was a love/hate relationship with that book.

New Warriors - Dropped with #12. Couldn't take any more directionless, pointlessness.
