Here’s an interesting tidbit for you: The first miniseries ever was DC Comics’ World of Kryptonin 1979. This new format, which actually evolved from the regular back-up stories that appeared in each comic, allowed writers to tell stories that would not necessarily fit into a monthly title, and would be able to explore different characters or ideas without the obligation of creating a monthly title for it.
If you thought Secret Invasion and its insane amount of tie-ins were enough to satisfy the piggy banks at Marvel, you were wrong! Alex Ross and Jim Krueger co-write Avengers/Invaders #1, a title that probably targets a very specific audience, and is nearly long enough to constitute a “maxi-series” in Marvel’s eyes (one short…darn!).
