Well, Crap

In what's becoming an all-too common occurrence on my pull list, Captain Britain & MI:13 is canceled.

I blame you. Yes, you, right there, who sat blithely pumping your hard-earned dollars into bollocks like Blackest Night and Dark Reign and other tepid, creatively fallow endeavors because they had a cool logo on and the so-called authors promised that things would never be the same again, in full knowledge that this was all a great big mega-giganto-fib, and that they'd managed to sucker you into buying the exact same story as last year's Big Throbbing Event, just with the palettes swapped, while books that actually tried to set a unique tone, provide something one couldn't get anywhere else on the stands, and maybe, just maybe not depress the living hell out of you got treated like that one kid in gym class who got picked last for softball, even after the girl with the helmet and the boy who liked to play with knives. I hope you're proud of what you've done.

The rest of my day will be taken up with large amounts of cursing.
