I used to buy comics based on characters I'd grown familiar with, and tended to avoid the ones I mentioned in my dislike list purely out of ...habit I guess!
I became a fan right before the Breyfogle/Grant era so I was on the other end. They didnt have many appearances of the old established villains, instead kept creating new ones (Ventrilquist being one of them). Actually as many as 4 of those ended up in my top 5 (the only one that wasnt and my #1 is of course - no surprise - Joker!)
