Imagine Thunderbolts if Busiek had wrapped everything up before Fabian had a chance to build on it, Daredevil if Bendis had wrapped up Matt's legal troubles and he was out of jail before Brubaker got there. And, its not old school for you to need that, its new school to need sub plots to be wrapped up, to leave nothing for future writers / the imagination. I cannot think of one major plot point thta Claremont left undone from his initial run, but what I do remember is the beutiful slow burn that was Phoenix, Muir Island, and how he still is the only writer that makes Storm interesting.
I cannot imagine what comics would look like today if every writer had to clean up every idea out of a book before their run ended
I can respect that, but as I said, concepts and plots are two different things and also if planned for a hand off is one thing. Also, sorry but I disagree, it's just an old school thing as I've said, concepts, not plots. Claremont was fine for major, but for the rest, a bit all over the road. Phoenix? That was something that was done quickly compared to other character plotlines. Yes, he is the only writer to make Storm interesting as a writer, to that I agree with you. Ha-ha, I love it when people point to the C&B era, that was when things tended to get wrapped up more then not, at least until towards the end.
I can, it would look much like most of the 90s and prior not to mention like some of the better if not best books out there during the 90s and even today. Sandman, Starman, Transmetroplotain, Preacher, Watchmen, American Flagg, Dreadstar...
It was rather enjoyable to get an over all story completed within a year or less and not dragged out to whenever someone else decided to finish it, if at all.
