      i want to know why marvel keep revolving artist back n forth on this series. this book need a stable artist.
    I haven't bothered to check all of them, but the first two or three artists were all new to Marvel so it may be a place to gain experience.

Khoi Pham had done at least an X-Factor arc beforehand, Sandoval had done a fair bit of Marvel Adventures work and Clayton Henry had been working for Marvel for years on Exiles, Alpha Flight, Apocalypse vs. Dracula and various other books.

    Part of it is also the different story arcs require different styles. The first arc was serious and the third was comedy. Each required different styles.

Basically, the reason is deadlines - they needed the art for the second arc started before the first one was finished, so they got a different artist. Pham was then shanghaied for one of the Avengers books. Sandoval was originally meant to come back for arc 4, but there was a delay between him finishing arc 2 and the scripts for arc 4 being ready, so he got snapped up for something else. And so it goes for books down the pecking order that don't get the leeway to run late...
