Lets face it, your first storyarc sucked ass. This is a chance for you to redeem yourself, the way to do this is NOT TO HAVE 4 OR 5 ISSUES OF PEOPLE STANDING AROUND TALKING. Ten years ago, your story would've been told in 2-3 issues, you really stretched a paper thin plot with this one. I know its almost a foreign concept to you modern day writers but how about spreading the action out over the 6 issues you will use to tell your next bloated tale? I understand you guys write with TPB's in and us oldtimers need to get with the times but you might be surprised that you can write a mini that doesn't take 4 issues for anyone to throw a punch, hammer or cosmic bolt. Action does not have to be sacrifices to tell a story.
Fraction will have to work pretty hard to keep from writing at least a Surfer/Thor fight in this story arc, though I guess anything is possible. Perhaps they will just have a cup of tea together and talk politics
