Wow, you know, I'm a bit of a sucker for Quesada's older art style. I liked the way his run on Daredevil looked, for instance. It was quirky and cartoony and all over the place. Energetic and dynamic. Very cool and expressive and unique. Then he went and became EIC, and went a few years without penciling anything. Then he went and did the (awfully delayed) DD: Father miniseries. I also liked the way that looked, it was a nice semi-reinvention of his style, and also very quirky and unique.

I've got to admit, I was a bit worried about the way OMD would look, though. From everything I've gathered (from things like con appearances to interviews to things like his Joe Fridays columns at Newsarama) it seems like the dude's crazy busy these days, and I was wondering if maybe the art would suffer because of it. But now, seeing this One More Day preview (http://milehighcomics.com/firstlook/090507/as544cvr.html) I've got to say, it looks like the man has stepped up to the task of penciling this supposedly very important story. The art looks wonderful, as does the coloring (but then, that's Richard Isanove for you). It's a bit like his older style, but it looks a little more streamlined, a little simpler, but very, very nice. I've sort of been fretting OMD's arrival (although I've also been looking forward to it, I'm weird like that), but even if it turns out to be something I don't like and something awful happens in the story (like continuity being wiped away), I'll at least have some purty art to look at.
