And I'd say wait and buy it in TPB if at all. If you're already complaining because the first issue of a comic doesn't give complete backstories and answer all questions about all characters, well, a) comics are probably not the best genre for you, and b) you're going to be complaining a lot.
I suspect most of those questions will be answered by the end of the first arc, and certainly by the second. By the time each of those are TPBed I'm sure you'll have heard via these boards if those answers match your personal expectations or if you intend to hate the author for not writing what you want written, and armed with that information you can then buy the TPB(s) if you want.
I was similarly frustrated when Kurt Busiek returned the Avengers and pretty much ignored everything recent for many months, but the stories proved worthwhile and he eventually got there. Frankly, I would rather have good stories than simple continuity upkeep. But... there's no way that the characters don't hit some downtime at the end of their first adventure, turn to Wands, and say "so what the @$%^ is up with you anyway?" I imagine that we'll see then if Slott intends to answer those questions then, or intends to set it up as a mystery to be played out.
