I just read the full avengers/new avengers run and it all makes sense. Kinda scary. Really looking forward to where this goes.
You can't really put down a story because it is billed as a prelude. Prequels are always coming out and no one worries about that. The only difference is we don't know what happens next, which I would assume is a good thing.
17 issues. $68. All as prelude to the "real" story. Man, "Lost" sure ruined the way a lot of writers pace their serialized storytelling, didn't it?
Nope. Lost is an example of prolonging a good series, making it excessively complex and tangled to milk its success. The first half was the good half, before they revealed too much about what was happening and kept creating even more mysteries to keep the premise of the "mysterious island" intact.
