I stopped buying comics like 15+ years ago, I torrented some for a bit, been trying to give them what I owe via the hardback collections of like Planet Hulk & world War Hulk, but they want too much. DP is another one, I torrented Deadpool & Cable.
But I wont’ say stopped collecting. I’m trying to get my grubby mits on every single comic that has Death’s Head, Death’s Head II, Death Metal, Death Wreck, Die-Cut (think I have all those now), and Dark Angel. MArvel UK 4tw.
I’ve since given away everything else including my old DP comics - just from all the moving I did during and after college (once a year heh).
That reminds me, I need to find a place where I cna get frames for comics for cheap…I got a house now so I can fnally put up my DH2 collection…
Back to DP though, Cable/Deadpool had its moment, I’m not even shitting on DP ‘after that’, I just stopped following and what folks were saying about it, just didn’t interest me enough. I’m glad he’s getting shine now - I’ve always said he’s a more tragic Wolverine - Wolverine gets all the ‘anti-hero’ love, but DP’s origin is way more tragic (stage 4 cancer with the solution being healing himself up so much that he goes crazy due to dying brain cells?). Like though funny and silly - you still wanted to cheer for DP when he was dealing with stuff because of what he was dealing with.
And Dat 4th Wall Fuckery…
