In today's market of $4 comic books in the Great Recession, you better hook your audience with the first issue. Disposable income is at an all time low.
"Hooking" and "Explaining every detail inorganically" are two different things, though. Maybe the answers come up in a better way later on that there wasn't room for in the first issue for whatever reason the writer decided?
Maybe the issue just needed to be more interesting all around, providing the one line of dialogue stating (for example) "Alright, I brought you all because we all fought our common enemy before" probably won't be what catapults the issue from 2 out of 4 stars to 4 out of 4 stars.
In fact, I remember a time where questions helped draw the reader in. Not answers.
