Theres different degrees of giving up, and Im kinda in between them.
Im always gonna be at least a little curious about whats going on with Spider-Man, Superman, the X-Men, etc. Thanks to switching to digital comics, and thanks to Comixology and Amazon sales, it takes fairly little effort to check in from time to time,
But a real, emotional connection to ongoing comics continuity? Gone for a long, long time. Spider-Man never won me back after the Clone Saga. DC lost me completely with the New 52 (after mostly losing me with Infinite Crisis). X-Men, I cant pin it down to any specific story, but it probably wasnt long after Onslaught (Morrison briefly made me care again with the promise of a new direction, but that only lasted for as long as his run did).
I can still occasionally really enjoy a story or a run, but its almost academic at this point. Theres none of that extra emotional weight I used to get from reading the main book versus an out-of-continuity mini series.
