    I haven’t jumped ship 100% but my pull list is a lot smaller these days then it was just a couple of years ago. One of the main reasons being the price going up while most of the quality is going down. I am just sticking to the ones i enjoy and anything that catches my eye.

    They’re making them woke and destroying characters that I’ve liked for years. Simple. If I do get any comics from the “Big Three” I have to make sure that they’re pre-2016.

    First was the introduction of female Thor which I thought was really stupid but I gave her (and other SJW heroes like Captain Not-Marvel and Kamala Khan) a chance. When I saw that they were propaganda, I immediately stopped reading and I dropped Marvel permanently when All-New, All-Different was announced because I knew they didn’t care about their characters and are more focused at virtue-signaling.

    I stuck with DC even though the DCYou nearly made me quit but on 2019, I finally had enough of Tom King turning Batman into a pathetic beta male. It didn’t help that the rest of DC was going in a direction that I didn’t like. Aquaman was being handed to a feminist writer known for her crappy Ms. Marvel, the super-fun Wonder Woman series started getting ugly art and going a feminist direction (I know there was her stupid origin story by Rucka but I skipped that trash), and with both The Silencer and Damage both canceled, there really wasn’t anything left besides the Terrifics but that wasn’t enough to keep me around and I dropped DC and 99% of comics in general.

    The only comics I even read now are Sonic and kickstarter stuff like Patriotika and My Hero Magademia (funniest comics I’ve read in almost a decade). All the constant wokeness and shoving liberalism down people’s throats made me hate American superheroes in general so I don’t even want to read many older comics anymore. I used to be such a big comic fan that I almost liked comics better than even videogames and even got my friends into superheroes. Now, I just regret all that and wished I never got into it. Why couldn’t I just have read manga instead?

    tl;dr version: Identity politics made me stop and I hate American superheroes now.

    That was DCYou. Wonder Woman was Ares and wore pants, Superman became a SJW, Batman was replaced with Gordon, and other things I don’t remember. It was so bad that I almost quit comics until Rebirth got announced. From then on, it was a boiling frog.

    Oh, I forgot Earth 2. So yeah, it did start earlier than DCYou.

    I’m truly sorry to hear that. It shouldn’t be that way.

    this is why:

    DC Proudly Announces DC Pride Anthology Comic to arrive June 8 and Crush & Lobo Comic Book Miniseries Launching on June 1

    This is why right now no one buys mainstream comics. Everyone is leaving marvel and dc comics and going other ways. That’s why we see indiegogo comics projects getting millions of dollars. We used to pay for quality dc and marvel comics, but now there’s no quality comics because those big companies got infected with the woke virus. Now if we want to read new quality comics,  we gotta pay for non-mainstream comics. That’s why comicsgate exist. People are tired of shitty comics with extreme political agendas. It’s fine to have a different character here and there, it’s fine to have some new gay character, it’s fine… but the whole story changed? Change the whole characters? Swap everything just to push agendas? They are literally destroying the industry that most of us loved and invested… now it’s gone, no one wants this crap, they don’t pay for it, they don’t even read it, they just brag about it on twitter and keep pushing agendas….

    Look at this shit. Even fuckin Lobo…

    RIP DC & Marvel. I’ll never waste any money on these companies (DC, Marvel, WB and Disney) again. And you should do the same.
