I feel kind of disappointed with the New Year lineup, mostly because they are all sequels. And two of them are written by the same guy (who I'm not a big fan of already). Even Dredd is directly continuing events from the end of last year!

In short, only Brass Sun, a serviceable Dredd, and Rufus's artwork is holding up the Prog for me at the moment.

Surprised America II got a mention but not the first one!

Here's the thing, America is great, no doubt. But I think America II has a big double whammy of a gut punch between Beeny's rape and what he has to sacrifice to protect his daughter in the end.

Also, in a similar vein, Terror is another story who's resolution hits pretty hard.

Younglings have a diminishing interest in paper

And in paying for things I fear.

If comics were 4 American dollars a pop in the 90s I wouldn’t have had much interest in paying for them either.

Dean Motter's Mister X*, Terminal City, and Electropolis. Are must read imo

* original series, and the modern revival

Edit: Carla Speed MacNeil's Finder. Also essential.

That is a problem!  Have you read Battle Angel Alita or Blame!  ?

I’ll agree about subjective tastes. And the narrower your genre tastes, the harder it’s going to be. But I’ve always found that some of that is self limiting; "I don’t like super-heroes", "I don’t read black & white comics", "this series has been going on too long to get into know",  “All the best comics were made by five guys in the 80s". Silly stuff like that can really limit people's horizons.

I have no idea what your feeling could possibly feel like. I’ve been reading comics consistently for 18 years and feel I’ve only just scratched the surface. There are always more comics; books I’ve heard about but not followed up on, books I’ve never heard of, and (most importantly) books not yet created.  There are more good comics in this world then can probably be read in a single life time.

Just this month I’ve been delving into Roy Thomas's Earth 2 material from the 80s at DC (All Star Squadron & Infinity Inc). And started reading Battle Angel Alita, a 15 or 20 collection sequence, from Japan.

Always more comics.

Do you think Sceam/Misty could survive as a regular quarterly? Maybe that’s what Rebellion should work towards.

There was that blip of activity when DC put out that Albion comic. Then, dormancy again.

I was a new reader. It all made sense to me. 

Also, I misread the 13th Floor advert. I thought when it said 'I'm Back!' and '2018' it meant, New Series!  But on second read, it just says Volume 1 collection. Oops.
