    I was so happy with my recently culled pull list but the titles are adding up again.

    I love the art for this. Love it I say! Sorrentino is brilliant, I really miss him on I, Vampire. Not sure if I'm going to buy this though, as I don't really care for the character and haven't enjoyed Lemire's other DC work... I guess I'll wait and see if I get it as an impulse buy or not

    That seems to be the way. Cut down the pull list, then within months it's too big again.

    I like Sorrentino, but some of the faces are pretty awkward, such as when Oliver looks at Emerson after he's been pulled out of the window.

    As an aside, I'm very disappointed that that blonde woman is not Felicity Smoak.

    Is that just a bad reproduction? Otherwise, it looks like they forgot to draw about half of each thing, character, whatever, or the color ran or something.

    Nope, that's how the art is; it's the coloring that's making it look off.

    For Sorrentino's, you need more neutral or darker, low saturated colors for his art to jump out at the reader. Just look at the last preview page and the first panel; see how good it looks with B&W and how the dark, saturated green complements it.

    Is it just me, or is this artist trying to replicate the look of Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye...?

    Yeah I sort of got that feeling too. That's a good thing.
