So I was at my local Comic shop today and walked into an interesting conversation. Can good writing keep you interested in a book if you do not like the art ? or on the flip side, Can great art, save a so-so story and keep your interest?
Me personally, I find that really Great Art can save a average story, for example the current run of Venom, I like the story, but I feel the last couple of issues it has been the art keeping me in. (last issue was much better). while the story has been lack luster.
However. I find the flip side harder, Bad art can not save a story I am interested in. example, current Thunderbolts, I love the team, and their interaction, however I find that I would have dropped the title if the artist was not going to be changed in the next 2 issues.
Anyway what do you all think ? and do you have any examples of good art or writing that saved an series for you ?
