(...or sometimes worse), DC continues to break new ground in its periodical titles.
Why would we ask differently of Gemstone? >>
Because we expect better comics from Gemstone than from DC or Marvel?
The only reason I mentioned USA reprints is that I know that those stories
are readable -- I have most of them. You must be right that there are good
Mouse stories being produced now --
but frankly, I am reading about 2 pages in these current Gemstone Mouse
stories, and then putting them down-- i can not finish them ( with the exception
that as bad as the soccer stories are, I can at least read them-).
I no longer read DC and Marvel superhero comics (except their reprints and
yes, i buy most of DC's humor comics) - having bought Mickey Mouse comics for
almost 40 years (the years they were being published)--I would like to continue
to buy them....
... but I dont have to buy them, and if I cant find something to read in
them, then the smartest thing for me to do is to stop......
... being an optimist, i plan to give them a few more months ....
but am starting to resign myself to being new Mickey-less.....
