Arrgghh! Enough Event Comic Books!

Between the Staples - Enough Event Comic Book Series!

THAT’S IT! I’ve fncking had ENOUGH of all the fncking Event books by DC & Marvel Comics! I’M DONE! I DON’T CARE ANYMORE! I can’t handle it. I’m burnt out, I’ve already forgotten what the last event books were, if they even mattered or not. Below is a list of 115 Event series & titles since 2010 from both Marvel & DC Comics. ONE HUNDRED & FIFTEEN SERIES & TITLES! Just… let… that… sink… in. In 7 years, we’ve had WAY. TOO. MANY. EVENT. BOOKS!

Now where is ALL this coming from? Well we’ve gotten news of two (or more) new event series from both companies. For Marvel Comics, we’ve known about the upcoming turn of evil Captain America Steve Rogers as a Hydra agent in the upcoming Secret Empire. Also coming from Marvel are two other sub-series NOT tied to Secret Empire which are Weapons of Mutant Destruction & Edge of Venomverse. Over at DC Comics we got news of Dark Days from Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV. Dark Days is said to be some new story that mixes past, present & the future of the DC Universe or some sh!t like that. #Yawn #IDontFnckingCareAnymoreDCorMarvelComics #EnoughFnkcingEventComicBooks

Enough! This Summer, Marvel is pushing it’s Secret Empire event! Gah!

Sure we can look and claim that DC Comics has done a better job story-wise with their various event books from The New 52 to Convergence to DC ReBirth in comparison to Marvel Comics who’s stories seemed to have already forgotten their last big event book Secret War. That’s NOT what I’m talking about though? My issue is that I’m SICK & TIRED of hearing about yet ANOTHER handful of fncking event series coming from both companies for this Summer.

I don’t WANT to read yet another fncking event book series.

Just let the comics run and have their own stories for a few years, PLEASE! I know Marvel likes to have Event after Event and DC does their event planning a bit better but then I find DC adds a ton of filler in all their event books. Marvel has some filler books but I find often enjoyed those Marvel books when I wasn’t burnt out after yet ANOTHER event series. I’ve lost count of all the Marvel event books or even what the hell happened in Original Sin besides the death of Uatu the Watcher & the original Nick Fury becoming a bum on the moon in chains as the new watcher of Earth, called The Unseen. #Sigh Then Winter Solider became some space hunter or something, fnck I don’t remember or care to. Why? Because soon enough Marvel was pimping out Secret War to end everything that Jonathan Hickman wrote along with the Marvel Universe.

Now I know most of the fandom does want to read about all these new series so if you do, feel free to go elsewhere about all that news as I don’t shive a git enough to give it any more free advertising…
