The art in the latest Swamp Thing issue is like Cartoon Network. This greatly distracts from the reading in the upcoming TPB format, doesn't it? I mean, how can that art change not stand out like a gigantic sore thumb and be cringed at in the TPB format? In a single issue, it's bad enough, but in a TPB, it's all the more noticeable. Does DC even think about this sort of thing? I wonder if the editors at DC (and Marvel) are permanently "out to lunch" when it comes to the quality of their editing work these days. Does anyone even know how to edit anymore? It used to be, that certain things had to be done in order to maximize the potantial sales of any given issue, but these days, the fans are going to buy next month's issue regardless of what the cover looks like or how a story is written or drawn, as long as the overall storyline keeps their interest and the art isn't too bad, overall. There's no pressure to keep the covers catchy and not make the mistakes that used to be editing no-no's in decades past when comics were still sold on newstands and the casual buyer was in the minds of editors back then. It seems to me, that editing has become a lost art. I never used to realize how important editing can be until this post-newstand era of comics came along, starting in the late 1990's, i guess. Do you notice the decline in editing? Or am i too into an aspect of the creative process that most readers, especially younger readers, don't even think about?
