Of course - by sacrificing the art.
Absolute nonsense. You don't need to sacrifice one for the other. John Byrne, George Perez, Jack Kirby, the list goes on of artists that can deliver the goods without wasting space
on the page.
Personally, I've always felt that story was more important than art anyway. That's the reason why I abandoned Image Comics right after picking up most of their #1's back in the day. It was pretty art, but the "stories" read like toy catalogs.
At the rate, by the time the first JL story is done, there will probably only really be four issues of material in a six issue arc. Again, a problem shared by many comic companies these days (Bendis, despite my recently defending him in another thread, is really bad at this.).
