I discussed something like this the other day.
There is something to limited runs like anime or manga where the story is told and it ends and it is an advantage for storytellers to leave them wanting more and having an endpoint. But the advantage is you can keep it going.
The market with paper comics will probably kill them before anything and the reason for that decline can be argued.
As for stories, most stories are repetitive when you get right down to it. What is the old addage, man vs man, man vs nature and man vs self or something like that. Lots of alien invasions, monster invasions, looking inside a character and so on. And we can say that it is all the same but the trick is not to always come up with something totally original but telling something in a compelling way.
Don't get me wrong, originality is good and all but comic readers get angry at too much change. We just generally do. So, we encourage alot of the same old sort of thing to come up and then get angry when somebody rocks the boat.
That said there are still alot of bad stories anymore. At least it seems that ways to me. It would be hard for me to pick things, as different events for different characters were more fitting than others for different characters.
