Yeah, IDW has always been abosolutly awful when it comes to art. I remember one Star Trek comic they did with Next Gen where they had Geordi talking and he was intentionally out of focus, and I realized this wasn't stylistic so much as it was time and effort saving.
When I heard IDW was doing the Doctor Who/TNG crossover, i got really sad. Same thing when I heard they were doing the Magic: The Gathering comics. le sigh.
Story is alright, but I'm probably not going to keep buying these. Heck of a lot of padding.
