Would you buy a bad comic with your favorite character in it?

  1. Of course! Anything for my favorite character!

  2. Hell no! Why waste money on a bad comic?

    If your favorite character was featured in only one comic book, but you hated the way the comic was written and how said character was portrayed, would you still continue to buy the book?

    Nope. A bad comic is a bad comic is a bad comic. I won't sift through garbage to keep up with any character, even my favorite.

    Maybe if it had really good art.

    That's the only exception. But I said 'no', because no, I won't read crap just to see my favorite character sounding like crap.
     
  6. On one hand, I voted no on the purchase...but after considering things, I realized that I continually buy Amazing Spider-Man. Spider-Man is my favorite super hero (over all), and I feel no shame in saying that Amazing has been directly on both ends of the spectrum. It has yet to fall inbetween. The stories are either really ****ty or really great (Ezikiel or Sins Past). So, in essence, my purchasing habit states that I would buy a ****ty book, just for my favorite character.

    Nope. No way do I support crap writers making a mess of my favorite characters.

    I picked yes, i buy anything that has Rogue in it. The way i see it badly written Rogue is better than no Rogue at all, but it does get me down when she is written badly.

    Interesting question.

    My answer is unfortunately NO despite wanting to support my favourite characters through thick and thin.

    I haven't liked the majority of X-Men solo books. Wolverine is the obvious exception. Quite often they only get average writers / artists in the long run.

    Sad but true.
