Here's a quick question that just came up in conversation:
Would you rather have comic book "events" that stretch out over months or weeks? Longer duration vs. shorter duration?
For example, a six-month event or an event done in a month?
Among the factors to consider are the attention-span of the readers & the total cost to purchase the entire event.
I lean towards weekly events with shorter timeframes. In an age of on-demand digital entertainment, weekly/daily updated webcomics, and "waiting for the trade," the content of a comic has to be pretty damn good to make me wait 30 days.
