Another day, another new artist on a Marvel NOW! title.
Along with the announcement that "Deadpool" will see Mike Hawthorne on art duties after the end of that book's first story arc, Marvel sent out teasers yesterday indicating that the legend himself, Walt Simonson, will be joining Mark Waid on "Indestructible Hulk".
Marvel seems to be making a habit out of switching creative teams around between arcs on their NOW! books, and at this point who knows whether this is a good idea. On one hand, the possibility of books shipping late drops significantly with an artist change-up. On the other hand, it could hamper the success of certain books with a drop in quality. Simonson is a legend for a reason -- his run on "Thor" is a classic in many ways -- so it is doubtful that his addition will cause much of a stir. Some fans are pretty serious about the art being consistent in their favorite books, but it is hard to be upset about the addition of someone with so much history in the medium.
Do you think that a creative team switch every arc is a good idea? Speak your mind in the comments section below!
