    I used to love Scud comics (I just finished a DL of them and it has been nothing but good memories) and it sort of saddens me to see how shitty it got later on. I did some research on it and it turns out that the creator started to hate the series towards the end and suffered from comic-creator-sell-out syndrome where she wanted to work in movies instead of comics. Can't really fault the guy for it since he claims that he wasn't making a living out of putting out Scud but it seems to be a thing that happened a lot in the comic industry. A new series would come out, kick ass, then just sort of fizzle out as the creator got caught up in making money some other way.

    Darkhawk, New Warriors, Guardians of the Galaxy....

    I like comics during that time. The it seemed ther "gimmick" covers hit and the quality went to shit. It was more about collectivity that good story and art. I think a ton of stuff fizzled then.
