Yeah, that was weird. I thought it was probably so they could fit the trade into a smaller number of pages, and sell it at a lower price point. But then they ended up printing the pencils from the entire 3rd issue in the trade, so the page count was the same. I though that editorial decision was a real head-scratcher.
As a fan of black and white comics art, I absolutely loved getting to see the raw pencils, but I would have happily traded that for a sixth issue.
