I posted this in the spoilers thread, but, yes, I do think so much of myself that I'm gonna take up two threads with my brilliant thoughts: I was just thinking last night that in the original series, each issue was like a TV episode. Most had a set-up, a climax and a denouement. Even though they all told a greater story, each issue was a story itself. Now, each issue is just like the little bits between commercials. It's like a soap opera that keeps shifting between stories, giving little snippets at a time. I find it really hard to get engrossed in it the way it is. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned and this is fine for those raised on YouTube and Web - sized chunks of data. But if there is a section of the Fandom that is holding off on buying until a compilation comes out maybe it has nothing to do with cost, but more with the experience they are willing to pay for.
