Probably depends on who the creative team is...among other things.

I just personally see Damage Control working best in finite stories. I wouldn't be mad at an on-going, though...

This is a very entertaining mini.  I don’t know too much about Damage Control except what was shown in the Wolverine Civil War story but I was able to easily get into the story and enjoy.  McDuffie is a genius with the dialogue here.

I wish they put out a Damage Control trade that collected all the old stories.

You'd probably save money hitting the quarter bins for back issues..

Sometimes I go trade-crazy, then have a bad case of buyer's remorse when I come back the next month to find I could've scooped all 12 issues for $3...  besides you can always chuckle at those old Saturday-morning cartoon ads :D

are a series of minis the best route to go nowadays with new books?
I seriously think it is the best way to go. Think about how many problems it avoids:
Crossovers and mega-events: They just happened in between series, or you do a special tie-in. No twisting or cutting short the plots the writer wanted to write to fit in with Infinite Hulk War.
Stories with actual endings: It's something pointed out by a few critics, that there are almost no self-contained stories. Every one-off special leads into another, no storyline ever gets properly wrapped up, and sometimes that works, but sometimes it just feels done because the medium demands it.

Look at Static. Return of The Cool was great, and was a perfect way to reintroduce the story. It jumped ahead several months, introduced new characters, had everyone's relationship changed, an interesting new status quo for the main character, and the story began and ended where it was. I felt that if Milestone were to come back, it should be in the form of further miniseries, rather than trying for a new ongoing.

Yeah, that is probably a better way to catch up on Damage Control.

we need MORE Damage Control McD.
like i suggested... your Damage Control should come out at the end of every major Marvel Event.
there's lots of damage to fix.

3 issues was refreshing but i was sad to see it go.
how 'bout 5 or six?

That's a great idea, a Damage Control mini to close off each big event. I hope someone at Marvel has the same brainwave.
