We interrupt this comics reading festival... 

...to show you Mark's Comics I Shouldn't Own, Part 3. This time Mark's bleeding his eyeballs looking at Deathstroke the Terminator #13:

Too many characters. A book completely hijacked by a crossover. And angst for miles and miles and miles. Sure, the art's not as ugly as the Lee and Liefeld clones left behind at Marvel, but it's nothing exciting, either. DC was trying desperately to tap into the franchise appeal the X-Men then held for so many readers, but all they had to do it with were their house-style artists and characters that still dressed like ABBA was cool. Did I mention this series ran for SIXTY ISSUES?

("Deathstroke the Terminator" always sounded like some kinda gay snuff porn, you know? I mean seriously, "Deathstroke"?)
