    I'm not exactly a big fan but some of his solo stories weren't bad but I can't get into the Post Crisis Batman at all loved the brave and the bold books were my favorites but after 1987 can't stand him but ironically I loved the Amalagm's DARK CLAW LOL!

    The fact both Marvel & DC are guilty of over saturation I got a few:
    Deadpool & Harley Quinn both need to be hunted down by every 90's Image superhero team in my opinion
    Batman
    Superman
    Hulk: loved the Peter David Run but Agents of SMASH made me sick
    Tony Stark & Reed Richards: They make me root for Magneto & Doctor Doom
    Cyclops & Jean Grey: Still trying to think who has more pent up sexual frustration for Wolverine more
    Hawkeye:Roy Harper is better, if he was in Marvel Black Widow, Spiderwoman, and Mockingbird wouldn't have given him the time of day

    So, so many...Wish I could say my tastes were more highbrow, but I really don't think they are.

    Sandman (although I love the tv show)
    Swamp Thing
    Saga
    League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Moore's Tom Strong was more my speed)

    I'm sure there's more that I'm missing.
    Keep in mind that you have about as much chance of changing my mind as I do of changing yours.

    I watched it and thought it was OK, but not quite up to the comic. Not having read that for many years, I read them again and can't remember a single change in the TV show, that I might consider an improvement over the original story.

    I think it was Dringenberg's art that put me off. I've read that the reason Sam Keith didn't continue after the first issue or so was because he felt that he was out of his depth, but had he stayed on, I might've, too.

    That said, my tastes tend to be less fantasy based, so *shrugs*

    Levitz's Legion of Super-Heroes

    Lone Wolf and Cub

    Tokyo Ghoul

    Monstress

    Still, I will give each one another try eventually, save for Tokyo Ghoul that I can say for certain I don't care about. None of the previous comics was a case where I hated what I was reading, I simply wasn't hooked by them

    The art was a drag until suddenly, everyone wanted a piece of it. Not just a problem for Gaiman. Moore always had to choose between having conflicts with some prima donna or obedience in the form of some no-name. Looks like Ellis frequently wen with option 2. Morrison had to deal with Chas Truog too, for his best work. In general, good comic book artists want to have a saying in the story, and that doesn't sit well with some real writers.

    I gotta disagree.

    there's a noticeable difference between his attempts to write fiction based on historical wars and his other material. just because violence and war are recurring themes in his work doesn't mean that every story he writes is actually about war. that's like saying that every movie that has sexually charged content and themes is a pornographic film... it just seems like too much of an oversimplification.

    Ennis brings a lot of contempt and spite to his comics... and his war comics tend to have a little bit less of this. he demonstrates a bit more sympathy, if not complexity, in these stories. he also has this obsession with anti-heroes and Byronic heroes... and I've never enjoyed those.

    Warren Ellis is another comic book writer that was really popular... where I never liked a single one of his comics. his book of essays; "Come In Alone" was fantastic. I read all of his essays on CBR back in the day and loved them. so, I was bitterly disappointed to find that his comic books left me bored.

    I've noticed this, too. I'll admit I probably got this entirely wrong, but with certain big deal writers, it always seemed as if they never wanted the artist's work to outshine their own.

    But they need artists for their own work to really shine. Why do you think Big Numbers was never finished? Because Moore tried with two different artists and couldn't suitably replace the last. Were he willing to settle with anyone, there were lesser options for him to choose from.

    Invincible. I didn’t dislike it but the universe, the characters, the art weren’t for me. I enjoyed the plot twist in the beginning of the series but then eventually become uninterested.

    X-men in the mid to late 80s, roughly 200 through Inferno and beyond. When they had Forge, Rogue, Longshot, Dazzler, Psyloche, Jubilee to go with Storm, Wolverine (and Colossus?). That group seemed boring to me and limited in power. I had no desire to read whatever Claremont was doing in that book.

    When they fought X-Factor around Inferno, I thought that objectively X-Factor should have wiped the floor with most of them, I could see Storm and Wolverine hanging in longer, but X-Factor had 4 members with long range strike ability that should have overpowered most of them pretty quickly. I had no interest in X-Men until they merged the original X-men back into the main group and split into two books.
