They end when the creator wants it to end. Unlike western comics by DC or Marvel that go on forever and have constantly changing writers and creative teams.

Stan Sakai is the only person who writes and draws every main Usagi comic, it's like Japanese manga where one writer handles the whole series. If Sakai wants Usagi to end, it'll end for good, no other writers will be able to make another Usagi comic. The only time someone else does write Usagi is of course his crossovers in TMNT cartoons.

Brothers Dracul by Cullen Bunn published by AfterShock Comics is a very good read.

^ This in form of collected editions, so I'm a few years behind. I also buy and read everything Avatar, Korra and He-Man. Every now and then I re-read some of my favorite Donald Duck comics.

My current pull list is:

DC:
Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps
Batgirl
Doomsday Clock
Justice League latest volume

Marvel:
Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows
Star Wars

IDW:
Ninja Turtles
Any Ninja Turtles secondary book be it TMNT Universe or a mini


Boom!:
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Hal Jordan and The Green Lanterns is canceled after August's issue 50 and will be released by Green Lantern by Grant Morrison which I will continue to pull.

TMNT Universe is also cancelled in August with #25. I will continue with the succeeding seondary titles it will be replaced by.

I am dropping Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with issue #30. My favorite character was killed and the focus is shifted away from the original six which is why I was reading it. I am not replacing this, but if the original six returns to focus I will pick it up again.

Did you read the infamously spoiled #50, Cylons? How was that "wedding" issue and all the build-up to it? I'd been thinking of catching up on that through trades

I was gonna check out Old Man Hawkeye but then I figured I should probably finally get around to reading Old Man Logan first

Donald Duck comics are underrated treasures. You ever read any Uncle Scrooge comics? I have some old favorites from when I was a kid

What issue is Doomsday Clock up to now? Wasn't it hit with some lengthy delays?

I've been liking the new Justice League series so far, I'm eager to see what other mysterious hidden forces have been unlocked by the breaking of the Source Wall

How is the new Avengers series? I need to get caught up, I've only read the first two. I want to see what's up with the 1,000,000 years BC Avengers

Also I wanna check out the Infinity Warps miniseries with the mash-up characters that's coming out soon

It lived down to my expectations. In my opinion, Tom King is hugely overrated and probably his own biggest fan. Every time he entices me with an interesting setup or beginning of an arc (I Am Suicide, I Am Bane, War of Jokes and Riddles, the wedding), he always ends up pissing me off with the execution or the endgame.

I cherry-pick the issues I read by him now... haven't entirely cut off the Batman series, but considering it. The wedding issue was just... boring. And, of course, enraging. And the last page seems like a "trust me, guys, I'll make it all up to you and worth it in the end!" kinduva thing.

My thoughts, basically? "Aw, fvck you." You had the chance to do something amazing, and you didn't. But I'll give the man credit--he does what he wants, and he obviously believes in the stories he's writing. I admire that. I hate his stories, but I kinda admire the man for writing them.

ADDED: Oh, and for the record, I hated the whole Grayson series, too. Superspy James Bond Dick Grayson... again, I admire the man for doing something bold and different, but I despised it.

Man, I read part of one issue of The War of Jokes and Riddles and man, that is the perfect way to describe it; you hear a title like that and think it would be something so cool and then the execution is just totally botched or the plot is just absolutely wack

The "we're gonna make it alllll worth it!" promise is the most-broken vow in comics


Anybody got any nice panels to share? This cover of Harley Quinn is pretty great, I'm tuning in for this story arc at least since it seems like it'll be enjoyably madcap and crazy

Spoiler:


And I just had to share this opening scene from the first issue of Cosmic Ghost Rider, it's so great
Spoiler:









And finally a panel from this week'week's Paper Girls

Spoiler:

And by that I mean the pig girl character is hot

Here's what I read yeaterday:

TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Hit the Road #1
(freaking great start to the miniseries)
Cosmic Ghost Rider #2
(a really cool look at a timeline where Frank Castle dies, becomes a Ghost Rider, then the Herald of Galactus, then the Right Hand of the Black King Thanos in the future, then dies again and goes to Valhalla until Odin kicks him out for being unhappy, so he goes to the past to kill Thanos as a baby, but instead he decides to raise and rehabilitate him)
Justice League #5
(Part I of a story about Lex Luthor forming the Legion of Doom)
Paper Girls #23
(so much has happened/is happening/will happen soon in this series I can't even explain, but if you're unfamiliar with the series and like 80s movies and time travel then I'd recommend it)
TMNTU #25
(probably the best issue of the series, RIP)
Harley Quinn #47
(the conclusion to the Harley Quinn vs. Apokolips storyline)


All in all a great week for the series I read. What about y'all?
