Worst of the marvel shows. Extremely slow and not nearly as entertaining.

Most of the season there is absolutely no threat to cage. .... so it's not compelling. The end fight was very anticlimactic. I honestly don't care if there is another season . I can't wait for more dd, jj, aos seasons.

I agree. I thought the characters and acting were very good, but the plot moved very slow and it seemed like people were having the same conversations each episode. There was probably an episode worth of time of artists performing at Harlem's Paradise. The ending fight was anticlimactic and reminded me too much of the end of Rocky V in the street fight against Tommy Gunn. The story that they showed would have made for a good 8 episode season. They gave the characters a lot of care, but not the plot.

@rainshadow777: I favor the trade for most comics unless it is one that I really need to see each month. The problem for most new books is that they are so decompressed that each month you are only getting a little piece of the story. Especially when you look at something like Rebirth or ANAD Marvel. The first 6 months of most of the books will mostly be setup as they get the characters positioned to where they want them for their long run. I'm sure a lot of these books will probably be good, but to me, they are much more enjoyable in a sitting instead of in little pieces over the course of half a year.

I'm a comic reader and not a collector so nearly all of my books are digital. I will often times purchase the single issues if they are cheaper, but wait until they are on sale and buy them all at once and read all together instead of buying them every Wednesday.

I'm also at an ebb in my interest in comics. I have only bought two books (Lazarus and Velvet) Since Secret Wars ended after reading about 15-20 a month before, and not sure when I will pick up any more.

For Marvel, I dropped out because I didn't want to sit through a half year of set-up for all the books so I figured I would just wait until there are a couple arcs out before I even go in and read any of the new books. Also, only a few of new titles or creative teams interest me as of right now and I don't feel an attachment to the overall happening in the Marvel U as I did the whole way up through Secret Wars.

Image's publishing schedule with the big delays between issues made it easy to break off from reading their books without feeling any withdrawal.

Valiant and IDW were harder because I was still enjoying their books and they are published regularly so I did miss reading those for a month or so before I moved on.

I still have a ton of backlog that I need to read (most of Hellboy and BPRD, old Star Wars, all of GI Joe, and about 250 issues of Fantastic Four) but with my reduction in new books, I have also stopped reading these older books as well. For me, it has been a combination of getting bored with the current superhero stories after reading through most of the classics over the past few years as well as it being nice outside and spending a lot more time golfing and hiking. I'm still not sure if this is just a temporary break or permanent split from the hobby.

Fantastic Four. The middle fifty issues are some of the best ever created.

X-O Manowar from Valiant. It is basically a symbiote that becomes a super suit. The series has been fantastic and is about to wrap up. It is currently on issue 48 and has been one of my favorite books since the day it came out. The whole Valiant Universe has been extremely enjoyable.

For me, it is:

Ben Hur

Jeremiah Johnson

The Sting

Jurassic Park

Predator

For animated, I would go with Jungle Book with Incredibles, Lion King, Robin Hood, and Alladin very close behind.

The Marvel Cosmic run from Annihilation through Thanos Imperative is probably in my top five but it covers a bunch of books and events written mostly by Abnett and Lanning as well as Giffen on Annihilation. I didn't include it since it is not a straight run on a book.
