    I somewhat agree. I would amend this slightly to story arcs should vary in length depending on the subject manner and shouldn't be unnecessarily padded out just to fill out the trade. I don't think every storyline should be capped either though. For example, I think Oeming's Ragnarok arc is one of the few storylines that might have actually benefited from being longer. My own personal preference would story arcs w/ vary lengths of 2-6 issues(as well more done-in-ones sprinkled throughout).

I wasn't trying to make it an absolute statement. I think these writers have a tendency to fall into repeat behavior, creating a sort of death spiral for their books.

    This one I disagree with somewhat. I do think that many a reader can and do enjoy more complex stories. I think at the very least that the type of story and how it's presented should vary from title to tile. Deadpool doesn't have to be as complex as Daredevil, Spider-Man doesn't have to be as dark as The Punisher, and so on.

But at the point when the title is clearly low selling, you have to bring in new readers, and complex stories aren't going to do that. This is similar to the shorter story arcs idea.
