This book is how it SHOULD be, and how it used to be done.. seed your arcs with future plot pieces, and come back to them at a later point. Not every plot point has to be a 6 issue story arc that is wrapped up neatly so they can sell a TPB.
Hickman's run is full of ideas and plot points spinkled throughout. It's meant to be looked at as a whole run, not individual issues or arcs. He writes for the big picture.
Granted, it's understandable that with prices being what they are that may not be everyone's cup o' tea.. but if even the biggest Hickman hater like Chap can come around on it, I think it's worth the investment.
I was going to pretty much say this.
It reminds me a lot of the Claremont X-Men or Stern Spider-Man or Brubaker on Captain America in that, as Holland Oats said, he has long range plans and drops hints, picks things up at a later date and GETS the FF. It's most certainly not written for the trade or anyone who wants instant gratification after 6 issues.
