There's just a handful on my pull list, yet
I still read news today that makes me sad,
That fills me with more than just some regret.
For comics lovers, even if such scrapes
Cross not your radar. I, for one, don't see
Myself enjoying Astro City's capes
A-flying with DC's. It had to be,
They'll doubtless say, but independence lost
Is always worth the mourning. The Big Two
Already bore me vastly; at what cost
Do we preserve the indies ere we're through.
Is Vertigo the next to go? I can't
Bear more such thoughts right now. Instead, I rant.Tweet
