Ya know, Marvel Comics "Civil War" is where I'm putting my foot down in regards to Marvel crossover abuse. You've heard the saying "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." I guess I'm slow but it's going to be "Fool me FOUR times, no WAY!" DC Comics is no doubt also guilty of this, but I haven't picked up any of their "event" storyline titles.

Up until a couple of years ago I was a marginal comic book buyer (although I was a huge reader going back about 10-15 years. Then came "Avengers: Disassembled"... the event to rock the Marvel Universe (or so we were told). So, I decided for the first time, sure, I'll go ahead and pick up all the crossover titles. If this was going to be THAT big, I wanted to really be up on all the details.

Little did I know that "Disassembled" was just the beginning of a nefarious plan to seperate thousands of folks from the money in their wallets.
