Your posts make me grateful that I'm too distractable to read comic books.

Julia, rejoicing in my relentless imperfection.

I forgot it won't let me vote for more than one option. So count me in also on Battlefield Earth and the economy of Ireland!

Worse than "Battlefield Earth"? Really? Is that even possible?

I'm really glad I live in this river in Egypt where there aren't any Buffy comics :-)

Nope. And the same goes for the "Left Behind" books.

Though on the other hand, BE and LB have gained world-wide infamy for their craptitude. Season 8 deserves no less.

The awakening of dread Cthulhu, on the other hand, would be AWESOME.

In the original sense of the word, perhaps.... :-)

I rather take issue with you lumping the fifth season of Babylon 5 in there with all the other bad stuff. ^^ The second half of it was rather excellent, it's only as long as telepath Jesus takes up screentime that it is actively bad. And even that had the "Day of the Dead" episode.

Hm. I haven't heard of S8 actually killing, maiming, or beggaring anyone so far, so I'll just stick to literary levels of badness.

Too many choices, and all of them so apt!

As far as I've read is the ending of the seventh compilation... you mean it gets worse? *facepalm*

I stopped reading a few issues into the Twilight story when Amy and skinless!Warren were revealed as a couple, the issues I've browsed through at the comic shop really haven't encouraged me to start again.
