Comic characters you follow even when they have terrible runs

After a certain amount of time as a comic fan, you begin to see that not all stories and runs on a character are created equal. Have you ever found yourselves buying issues of a comic book just because it has your favorite character in it, regardless of how good or mediocre the stories and art are?

This has happened to me most recently with:

Batman Beyond
Wonder Woman
Howard the Duck
