So you were definitely implying that those critics were applying a simplistic universal rule....
Some of them WERE
saying they needed to be three-parters. Or did I just dream it?
But I never said anything
about it being a "simplistic rule". You put that term into the discussion, not me. Of course
there's no such rule; I'm not arguing so. If anything, some of the best writing is when a writer tweaks or even breaks supposed accepted rules.
There were people on this bbs speculating that the redshirt and Keenser one-shots weren't even going to be worth buying. They said that if the two-parters needed more issues to tell a decent story, they doubted IDW could do it in a one-shot.
This is doing my head in. Forget I ever spoke.
