That's true. But good art with bad story is still a bad story.

Good story with mediocre art is annoying, but still readable.

Ideally, you want both good story and art.

All of Loeb's work with Sale has been much better than witohut him. I've read all of them except for Wolverine/ Gambit and the only bad thing was the Challengers of the Unknown mini (but it did have a great Guy Gardner back-up with it). I'll definitely be checking out the first issue at the very least.

Could be that work the old Marvel way.
They both work out the plot then Sale does the art, pretty much "directing the piece, then Loeb writes the dialog.
