No. There’s no such “trend”— there’ve been any number of hit comics that didn’t “explain every single thing” with sales and critical success ensuing. Even if there were such a trend, audiences are allowed to…

I have a bigger problem with creators caving in and explaining everything in interviews than I do them crafting narratives that encourage debate about the meanings contained therein(looking at you everyone who worked on Prometheus).
