> I found the insight into Bendis' creative process rather interesting. So he writes each arc specifically for the artist working on it? If that's the case are we destined to see arcs designed for Cho that emphasize buxom babes? Are the New Avengers destined to fight ninjas forever as long as Yu is the artist?

Hehe, you said 'creative' \:\)

No worries having a 'Bagley onboard', and I don't think it's the stories a writer has to manuever for an artist, but it is a good idea to play to their strengths and not weigh in on weaknesses when it comes to describing the panel layouts, etc. If you've got a Perez you don't have just one or two characters in a panel, but if you've got an artist who's weak with city layouts you avoid the sprawling cityscapes.

I agree, you should certainly play to an artist's strength. Adjusting the story for the artist is different though. I would like to think that most professional artists can handle anything thrown at them. If you think artist Z can best handle a ninja story, but not the romantic subplots that started to develop between two characters in the previous arc by artist Y, then are you going to put this story element on hold for x amount of months? I think we've seen this in New Avengers, at least until the point that I jumped ship. Will that Spider-woman/Fury/Shield subplot ever get resolved? What will be the next step for Wanda? Or do we have to wait until that artist that drew issue #26 is free to add that special touch only he can deliver. I'd rather have a consistent creative team that works well together on a variety of stories. If Bendis and Bags can do it on Ultimate Spidey why can't it be done on The Avengers, "today's X-Men"-a book that for the most part was synonymous with long artistic stints.
