    After 4 issues? We hardly are getting into the story.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Hopefully it’s just between arcs. But I’ve lost a lot of faith in Fraction keeping a schedule lately.

    None at all. If it wasn't for their tease in the book itself on things to come, you'd be forgiven with thinking it got cancelled for how mum they've been on the topic.

    My problem is I think the book is overcooked. Fraction talked about developing this for over ten years. He created all these characters, like having six sisters that all interact. I am sure he thought of stories and character arcs for all of them. That is a lot of balls in the air. The book has a fun core story. They should have focused on that and then organically grown the cast.
    And now, with the story barely begun in this overwrought book, that used up time for all the background stuff, they go on hiatus. Really?

    I think overcooked is a good word for it. I remember reading the issues and thinking that scenes were going on for 1-2 pages longer than they should.
    And it's not like the book is anything groundbreaking. You've read this story before. You can see the developments happening a mile away. I bet Adventureman will turn out to have shady secrets like Professor X or whatever.
    If it weren't for the Fraction/Dodson pedigree I doubt I would have read beyond the first couple issues.

    The hiatus definitely kills a lot of my interest in this

    Yeah, the issues so far have been mainly background to introduce a plethora of characters, so if the series goes on hiatus, we shall have forgotten who they all are by the time it comes back. The project should never have been launched.

    You can't, I don't know, reread the issues?

    Normally I would say "Yes, of course", but considering how bloated these issues seemed on first reading, I'm not certain that I would consider re-reading them to be a task worth the effort.

    Hardly means the book shouldn't exist.
