--Previous Message-- If the sales are great for the first few issues, then Oeming can go on with his initial story, but if sales are bad, then he has to hurry up and wrap up whatever he had planned, which usually results in a horrible final issue.
: The things that bugs me about all of this is
: how is the book going to read. Writing five
: issues for the first arc of an ongoing is a
: bit different than writing five issues for a
: mini series. If the sales don't warrant
: will this read like a mini series or a
: trimmed ongoing.
This is why Marvel's current PTB don't have a clue about what they're doing.
Either solicit the series as an ongoing and stick to it, or simply make it a mini and that's it.
It's easier on the writer and the fans.
