While there certainly are a handful of titles that I've followed in the last few years and they have brought me some great satisfaction, but I really do miss the good ol' 90s when comic were a great source of "cheap entertainment" for kids and kids-at-heart. Back then, I could buy Batman Adventures, TMNT Adventures, Sonic the Hedgehog, Animaniacs, etc. at my local small-town grocery store. Nowadays the only place to find comics on the shelf is a LCS specialty store occupied mostly by people in their 20s and 30s. It certainly is a change. Whether it's for the better or not I can't say.
As a kid the 80s were the golden age of comics for me.Comics and comic shops were everywhere. The whole Rob Liefield 90s had me get out of comics completely by 93 -95.

I jumped in and out with a few titles over the years until staying the long haul with a few Avatar titles and sticking with a few IDW titles. Still to this day I don't touch the big 2 or any superhero stuff anymore.
