    Post Colorists and Rotating Art Teams

    With the accelerated shipping schedule of Dawn of X, rotating art teams are a guarantee for these new X-Books.

    The more normal approach to rotating art teams is that the entire art team rotates. Pencillers get paired with their usual inkers and their usual colorists. Other series, such as Uncanny X-Force, make an effort to have the same colorist work on all pencils; and when that wasn't strictly possible, effort was made to have the fill-in colorists match up with the established style.

    A good example of an artist that tends to be in the former camp is upcoming X-Men artist Leinel Yu. Almost universally, when Yu joins a book, his work is colored by Sunny Gho. When Yu leaves or takes an issue off, so does Gho.

    House of X and Powers of X, meanwhile, shared a colorist team between two different pencillers.

    What approach do you prefer?

    I can't imagine reading comics and not noticing a difference in colorists when there's no effort made to co-ordinate palettes and styles.

    I really like when the artist changes but the colorist it's still the same so it still kinda feels like the same even if the characters are drawn a bit differently. Like the current Runaways, the artist transition was so smooth and a big part of that was thanks to them keeping the colorist.

    I actually don't mind if some of the titles have rotating artist. We know X-Men is having like 3 different artist in the first 6 issues.
