I cancelled my subscription many months back and really haven't regretted it.  I visit the comic shop every 4-6 weeks to pick up Walking Dead and a few new titles I'm trying like Ant-Man and Deadpool, but that's it.  I've peeked at the Avengers and Iron Man stories while I'm there, but the stories look awful.  How did they ever resolve the Hydra Captain America stuff?

Jman - did you drop your Star Wars subscriptions too, or just your non SW subs?

I believe history had been rewritten by the Cosmic Cube, resulting in Hydra Cap.

Three comics in, and "The Magic Order" is pretty compelling.  If you're into Millar's stuff.

I actually dropped SW too.  I bought issue #50 by chance, but I think I stopped right around #35.  Stopped all the secondary titles as well.  I pop into the comic shop every 4-6 weeks to grab Walking Dead and Old Man Hawkeye, but that's just about it now.  I'd probably snag the missing SW comics if I found them on sale somewhere.

Although I haven't personally read it, sounds like more darkness returning to the DCU this week via Heroes in Crisis#1. I won't get into details here because of spoilers, but suffice to say several heroes were killed off including a couple fairly significant ones. Not to mention what happened to Nightwing in the recent issue of Batman.

I know it has been discussed before, but I really have had enough of all the "dark and gritty" with comic books. It has its place, sure, but I like my heroes to just be heroes and punch the bad guys in the face.
