@b., your "movie trilogy" example is a poor one. A single page of a weekly comic simply isn't comparable in scope to a feature-length film. It's more apt to compare it to a single scene within a movie (and even then it's not really a fair comparison, but it's MORE fair). Traditionally, a movie scene has to do at least one of three things:* Establish setting, mood, and tone* Advance characterization* Advance at least one plot arc(Even art-house and French movies, in their seemingly ubiquitous Scenes That Don't Do Anything, are using those scenes to establish mood and tone.)Today's Byron the Tauren Rogue:* Establishes setting and mood* Advances characterization* Advances the plotIn other words, it meets ALL of the criteria of a successful movie scene. So do, frankly, all of the rest of the pages of this comic. The problem is that it's not moving FAST enough for you, and I suspect that's because you're expecting each page to be a feature-length movie. And frankly, that ain't gonna happen.
