They didn't really need 4 issues to cover the ground they had to cover. Two would probably have been enough. It left the entire series feeling slow and padded.
I haven't felt the "Nero" mini-series was "slow and padded" at all. I was curious as to what issue #4 was going to contain - what more story could be left - but we got lots of between-scenes Nero/Spock stuff from the movie in this one, answering questions and nitpicks people have complained about here on the TrekBBS.
