Our thoughts: An artist switch in the middle of a series is a pet peeve of many comic book readers. Most fans will begrudgingly accept changes to their favorite writer/artist team on an on-going title at the start of an new arc, but switching artists mid-storyline often changes the dynamic and tone of an already established “look and feel” of a comic book. Tristan Jones’ extremely detailed style is replaced this issue with the talented, but more realistic style of Wood’s frequent DMZ collaborator Ricardo Burchielli.
