Anyone else been disappointed with the art in these, ever since Jae Lee left the project?

When I first heard about the graphic novels, I was super stoked to hear that Jae Lee would be doing the art. I am a fan of the format and Jae Lee has been my favorite artist since Hellshock in the 90's. Since he left, the art seems to have gone from bad to worse. There have been some signs of hope, but nothing compared to those first few arcs. Anyone else feel this way? After the last Arc, I think I am just going to skip the comics.

...the stories are still good even if you don't care for the artwork...and though I like Jae's efforts-I have been impressed by others as well...

I thought Jae's work was fantastic on this book. I'm currently up to the Gunslinger collection. The artists who've succeeded Lee suit the tone of the stories, at least so far. Robin Furth (& Peter David of course) did a remarkable job fleshing out the mythology of Mid-World on this series.
