Discard Pile

I'm pretty proud of myself. I've just parsed through 8 months worth of unsorted comic at the side of my bed. I think that's the longest I've ever gone without collating, bagging and boarding, creating a Hoarders-like pile of unnavigatable space on the West side of the bedroom. This, however, isn't what I am proud of, but instead it's my rather paltry pile of false starts (series of which I bought the first issue/first few issues then gave up on). Regularly reviewing comics I tend to try out books on a regular basis, and this leads to a lot of unwanted odds and sods in the comic stack, but I've been more prone to reviewing things in trade or rather just reviewing things I'm already interested in. It kinda cuts down on the clutter. Oh yeah, I also just realized we had a lengthy hiatus between reviewing gigs, so I guess that accounts for some of it too.

My discard pile, so small and unappealing:

Wonder Woman #600
Freedom Fighters #1
DeadpoolMAX #1
Machete #0
DC Universe:Legacies #1&2

I've actually been enjoying DC Legacies. It's been a nice reminder of why I still love The DC Universe.

I didn't hate it but I wasn't enjoying it nearly as much as I was expecting to. It's second-rate "Marvels" stuff, which I guess is better than third-rate, but it left me seriously wanting something more exciting/interesting.
