Anyone else notice how the big two comic companies can't seem to decide how long a story will take? Marvel has been extending miniseries for a while, but now DC is getting into it as well.
Take the Green Lantern: Rebirth miniseries, which the creators behind say they spent 6 months planning in order to get the return of Hal Jordan as Green Lantern "right." Yet over the course of just a few months since the series was announced. It has gone from a 5 issue miniseries, to a 6 issues, to in the most recent Previews listing 8 issue miniseries.
Now I can sort of see needing to expand an issue if things don't fit. Yet three issues to fit it all in? That seems to be lack of planning or perhaps inability to get writers to streamline their ideas into a workable idea.
I'm not planning on reading it anyway, but still just something odd to observe.
How do you store your comics?
I am worn out, and still only half done, trying to convert my comics from the long white boxes to airtight plastic containers. I don't have but about 6 white boxes and a dozen or so big Diamond boxes of stuff I've gotten in the mail.
Yet trying to determine what will go where, what to keep, and realizing just how FREAKING heavy a lot of comics can be is very weird.
