The trouble with 2-issue minis is that there's gotta be more going on than just what you'd have in a quick one-shot; and being two issues is a whole different thing than a double-sized one-shot...to me, at least. All the more here, as the characters are new to me, and I think actually new characters, period: barely begin to get to know what they're about and the story's over with.
