Decompression is taking longer to tell a story, thus robbing the spender of their value. While in the olden days stories were often told in a single issue, now stories are spaced out to fit a trade collection of six or so issues, called "pacing for the trade". This often shows up in the form of unnecessary splash pages, silent panels of characters exchanging looks, and banter dialogue that goes on and on without really accomplishing something.
Yeah, I can see that. I often felt frustrated with the Siege storyline. I felt it went on way too long. Now I understand it was probably for the trades. Crazy.
