And for me it’s precisely the opposite — whatever books I like, by writers I like, will give enough of a summary of the Big Event to provide context for their own stories, so I can totally ignore the Big Event title itself and just get the ones I enjoy. So far for Dark Reign I’ve gotten Wolverine: The List, Agents of Atlas… Hercules… erm… and that’s it. I will get the Paul Cornell Dark X-Men book later because it’s by Paul Cornell, not because it ties in to Dark Reign.
Finally, a comic about my addiction.
@ChastMastr Yeah, same here. i’ll keep buying Thor, Fantastic Four, Invincible Iron Man, Captain America and the Secret Warriors. If they crossover with Siege I trust the writers to tell me what I need to know.
I admit I’m guilty of this for the first time with Blackest Night, but honestly it’s because I’m enjoying the event that much. And actually we do go a bit more in-depth with some of the other stuff, for example Blackest Night Wonder Woman had some explanation for what was going on in Diana’s head at the time, or Blackest Night Titans showed the current Dove being immune to the ring, and etc., etc.
That being said, there are a few ones I’m not picking up simply because the first issues with it were crap (Superman/Batman was just what the hell).
Either that, or the boss gave him a little talk about discouraging customers from buying all those tie-ins…
