I certainly am giving them another chance after the Avenger's movie blew me away and sparked my interest again. Before, as a manga fan I wouldn't have been attracted to any superhero comics since there's all those issues of continuity, different artists, and different writers. I would have been quite happy with my linear manga/anime story lines. But I suppose after so many years of that, I started to look for different types of media to desaturate all the anime tropes that I've drowned in.@MaiMai
Maybe I should give superhero comics another chance?
I'm not sure how behind in Gunnerkrig Court I am : | Cucumber Quest sounds fun, and Hemlock sounds vaguely familiar... I will check them out at some point! Thanks for linking them~
Really all those "problems" I've mentioned above are actually part of the fun. I love looking at all the different art styles there are for superhero comics it's so varied from godawful to something you have to give credit for being awesome. Same goes for writing and story lines that can get confusing. But I think instead of trying to approach superhero comics in a linear fashion, I'd just go, pick up an issue. If I like what I see and read, it's worth sticking to. And like it or not, American superhero comics are pretty much part of American culture history! It's really fascinating to me how far they've come since then.
And really if you're not into superhero comics, but want something other than manga, I personally depend on webcomics haha wow I rambled.
