When I started comics I didn't always follow issue to issue. Sometimes I skipped story arcs if they dealt with things I didn't care for and if a story summary looked interesting I'd use those notes to figure out what books I needed.

Are editor notes really that big of a problem?
I've come across a few different sites where people complain over the little editor boxes that say "last issue" or "it happened in issue #2." I have to ask what is the big problem with this? It's not like they think we're stupid (like I've seen them be accused of) but it's rather for new readers. That's why some books have the main characters introduced every issue. Seriously try picking up a trade from the 90s if you think this is bad. I got the Clone Saga tpb and they recap everything every issue to the point you want to scream "enough already!"
