Bored with comics right now

Post by Mbast1 on Tue Sep 29, 2015 3:12 pm

I'm going through one of those periods where I'm bored with comics. There are things which could be interesting, and there are tons of reprints of things I think I'd enjoy, but I just can't really get into anything.
Anyone else go through these periods?

I have done, in the past. I almost gave up on comics at one point in the late 90s. But I always seem to get drawn back in. My main problem right now is not interest, but time. I seem to have too many things constantly competing for my attention to have time to just sit down and read.

I think that's partly what I'm dealing with, too. SO much going on right now, and it's making it hard to find the time to get into too much.
It always passes, though, and I find something I want.

I had such a busy day on Friday, which ended so late, that I basically could not switch off-just couldn't sleep. So for want of anything else to do, I got up and pulled out some old issues of Marvel's New Mutants from the eighties and just read about half a dozen before going back to bed. It was incredibly relaxing, and I'd forgotten how much I once liked that book!

I just haven't had the time to really do much reading. With TV I can leave it on as I do other things, but with reading attention is required.
But I agree about the relaxing and finding old things to find interesting again.

I actually find TV very distracting if it's on in the background. Radio, I can ignore. TV tends to draw me in.

I would agree to some extent. That's why when I just want background noise (as when I'm getting ready for work in the morning) I keep on sitcoms, usually one I've seen before. That way I can miss things and not worry.

Our TV is usually permanently tuned to BBC News during the day.

That would never work for me. I'm a news junkie, and I'd have my attention pulled to the TV all day. Especially BBC news, which I consider to be top tier.

A fair point. I rarely feel the need to get my news from anywhere else (I stopped buying a paper years ago).
