“If Series takes off in a big way, it’ll hamper the creation and readership of stories.”
I wonder. People who write stories aren’t likely to switch to an unstructured series of doodles. I’ve never done a Series, but if I do, it will be an illustrated or animated story.
Likewise as a reader, I get impatient with unstructured blather of any kind, including a series of images. Hard to imagine how I would switch allegiance to Series as you describe them.
