I was reading Danger Girl Trinity yesterday somewhat by mistake. I am pretty bad at telling what series are coming out, but luckily I am well known enough to my LCS that they put away things for me in my pull list which I don’t ask for but which they know that I would want. The format of the series is not a very different one, but still not exactly what is typical. The series is being told from three points of view, including three different artists – one for each of the Danger Girls. Generally speaking when it comes to comics for me it is story and writing first and art second, but in this case I found a bit of a disconnect in terms of attention to the characters as the art style changed.
Usually this is noticeable to me only if I see a character go from one artist to another within successive issues. There are those that are more concerned with art than I am though, so I was wondering if anyone actually finds this bothersome or alternately that it actually improves the storytelling? For me it would seem to do a little of both. As there are three separate stories the change in art style between them helps to distinguish them, but equally it also does feel like a solid break from the stuff that came before inside the same issue. This is even compounded a bit more because the artist that created the characters got one segment and others artists got the others. This can even make the other two part seem alien and unfamiliar as the characters look just a little bit different than usual. Personally I suppose that I would prefer some artistic continuity except in the cases of series like 52 where it makes sense not to have it.
