Let me start by saying that I am one of the long-time Avengers fans who's not terribly pleased with Leinil Yu's work on the book. However, I wouldn't go so far as to say that he's a "bad" artist. I think I would enjoy a Dr. Strange series drawn by him, for example. But I think his style is not suited to the Avengers, particularly because his layouts and figure drawing tend to be confusing in multi-character action scenes. This got me to thinking about which other artists who, despite their talent, simply wouldn't work on a regular Avengers series. Tim Sale is the first person who came to my mind. I was wondering who y'all would say.
