Some readers may find an issue of all-new serials to be a good place to stop, if the newsagent allows them time to "review" the issue before buying. If strip lengths are broken up, you're liable to be hooked on at least one that's running on. On the other hand, that means no great place to start, because you've always missed something. What's the conventional thought on this? Given that comics publishing isn't a history of unbroken business success - but, with hindsight, it may be seen why what went wrong, was wrong.

And, what happened to that serial about the missing child movie star? That wasn't finished, was it? Or was it... maybe the writerdroid made a deal with the Robot Devil for his plot, and that was the deadline. And, how much do they save printing black and white pieces?

I'm still catching up with reading back issues so I'm about 10 issues behind, but Hope may be one of those serials that's rested for a while before returning later.

Yes, some see the revamp issues as a "jumping off point" but presumably more people jump on, or return, to a comic when it starts new stories in one issue or they wouldn't keep doing it.

You'd have to ask 2000AD how much they save on the black and white pages but it'd include colourist fees and so on. I like a few black and white pages to break up the relentless colour, personally.
