This is even more true in terms of serialized storytelling like episodic television or monthly comic books – providing all the answers up front or being too linear with the narrative leaves little to keep the audience coming back for more. The irony, of course, is that in concealing the truth or breaking up the narrative, one risks losing the audience completely, either through confusion or frustration.
