It may sound harsh, but this update was a low point for me in this series. The writing in this comic has always been superior, having someone else read it is awkward and unnecessary. It feels a lot like someone standing at a stop sign yelling "STOP". When something is as well written as Erfworld, the reader gets it. There is no confusion in content or feeling, it doesn't need to be spelled out by a narrator.
The new David Hahn art is meh at best compared to that of the previous artists. The second panel with Artemis centered is..well, just bad in both style and content. The style may just be a me thing, but it feels very high school art class. As for content if I focus just on the Artemis panel, she is reaching for nothing in a weird pose, and there doesn't seem to be any reason for this. As the archers are all stacked, from the writing, I am assuming they are "at the ready", but she has her bow in the wrong hand. I say its the wrong hand as in a previous comic (see Book 2-Text 52), she is right handed. Also, her arm guard is on the arm opposite the bow, which is not how that works. It looks like the new artist wanted to showcase the bow, and made the scene weird just to do it. I am not a fan of that.
At this point, I get that my argument could be discounted. One could argue that she is just holding it in the opposite hand for a moment. Fine. Sure. My follow up argument/question is then what happened to Sizemore's pants? On page 112 prior to the enclosure he has pants on. On page 114, when the enclosure is opened, he has pants on. For this update which is chronologically between them, no pants. I get making small errors, but not looking at what each character was wearing in the comic just prior is sloppy at best.
I am sorry that I am negative in this post. I have been a fan of the series since its start on the OOTS site, but the new art and format here pale in comparison.
