    It's not just american comics its american story telling in general. You see the same endless stream of random arcs even in T.V. dramas, sitcoms, cartoons, even oldschool radio shows did the same thing. each of them never really had a plot, they just sort of continued until they run out of ideas or until they've parodied every major current event.

    Everything is related to money making eh.. Well, like cool_nite had stated, the business must keep going. Squeeze the apple until it is rotten...
    But, there are other good american comics, isn't? Like ARCHIE. Simple story, yet stress reliever..

    There's also the factor of good and evil in American comics. It's just too much black and white. Some villains do nasty stuff just for the sake of being evil. No justification at all. It's like villains are actually born bad. You rarely see villains who have real motive for doing the things they do.

    That’s not really the case anymore in American comic’s especially after the Dark Night Returns, but even before then batman villains have a lot more depth than you may give them credit for…(and you always have to love the fact that Batman can beat the crap out of super man when he’s 50 just because he’s smarter than superman.)

    But then when you get away from super hero’s you have comic’s like the Sandman, Lucifer, Fables, and Transmetropolitan … all of which have stories that transcended what many of you think a comic book is…

    And Archie comics are great but I prefer Calvin and Hobbes.

    Me, I'd take good old X-Men any day over DC comics, some of the stories from the 70's to mid 90's are amazing(haven't read any printed since about 1995).

    I like DC's vertigo lable, but that's sad that you quit reading because you missed 1602... but marlve is fun, and image...

    I liked X-men when I was a kid. But now spandex wearing heros are kind of repulsive to me. And in X-men, everyone wears a spandex(maybe not everyone, but, what the hell). The only American comics that I still like today, despite all the bias that I have for mangas, is Spawn. Spawn is Spawn, 'nuff said~
