  1. Enjoyed the podcast as always. Greetings from Tampa, Florida! I don’t necessarily want to make negative comments about 52, but is it worth pointing out that the artwork for the series has been serviceable, at best, up until this point? I realize it’s a weekly book and that timetable would have given the team(s) tight deadlines to work with, but even so, I keep thinking that this would have been pushed as a ‘premium’ DC title of that time, but the artwork doesn’t reflect that status. Even the covers are mostly just ‘OK’. Am I nuts with this take? Am I just spoiled? Does it get better later in the series? Thanks guys!

    • First, thank you for the feedback! Love getting messages like this. And thank you for listening. I don’t know how long you have been a listener, but we thank you for making time in your week for our ramblings.

      We do answer your question on the show, but a quick answer here. If that’s what you feel regarding the art, then you are correct. everyone views the books by different criteria. I think the art has been mostly consistent, and we have pointed out a few times when the art has been poorly done. You’re not wrong for wanting something more from the art, but for now, it is helping to deliver the story.

      Please keep listening and send in some more feedback. – Jerry

      • Thanks Jerry! And to be completely fair, I feel like I spoke too soon as I just read through the next issue and thought the art was MUCH improved (really enjoyed the scene with Captain Marvel/Shazam, Black Adam, and introducing Isis). I realize this is entirely subjective and I don’t like to dump on creators and their hard work. There were just some pages in the last handful of issues where I was actually distracted by the artwork (in a bad way). Anyway, forging ahead and will try to focus on positives!
