Seriously, Starfire went from this:

Holy Sh*t she looks so gross, and I find Starfire to be the most attractive DC character of all time. She looks like the scarecrow. The only positive I find is that he got rid of that stupid mole on her face.

I really hope Kenneth Rocafort comes back or at least Timothy Green learns to draw her properly.

Red Hood was easily one of the best titles art-wise at the launch of the New 52, it really is a shame they lost him. Not just because of Starfire but the book in general. DC is changing the creative teams on books too quickly, none of these stories will be remembered in three years because they go all over the place.

in pascal alixe's defense, all his characters look like that.

But then again, I do miss Rocafort on RHATO. I hope Timothy Green starts drawing her better.

Yikes! That third pic kinda' looks like Stifler's mom. Or Jocelyn Wildenstein.

Though in fairness to Timothy Green, there are somewhat better examples of his Starfire in recent issues than that one posted above. The space-suit isn't helping matters.

I agree. Green is no Rocafort, but I feel the OP cherrypicked a terrible example when does have some solid and consistent panels.

...you are the second artist aren't you.

Joking aside, I hope ken stays on superman. Seems like DC is finally making moves to elevate supes to proper status. I hope a new artist comes on to redhood and knocks it out of the park. I admit that I left after ken too. Just can't bare to see how the book looks now.

Timothy Green II is a really bad artist.His every design is sucky and the action is just unreadable.

Ouch.... there are some rough panels in issue 14.

I really hope there's some change/improvement going forward, cause I do like the characters and story so far, but if the art continues like this latest issue it'll be hard to stick with.

Seriously, issue 12 aside, Green has improved. Pascal is jsut a fill in artist, and that is one of the worst examples of his work. Green is a good artist, that i dont necessarily think fits in with Red Hood. Rocafort, on the other hand, was amazing but i am so glad he is drawing such a big title. I think Green's upcoming art will really be crucial to see if he can fit into RHTO, otherwise i hear Brett Booth is off of Teen Titans, and i personally love his work.

I don't "hate" Green's art, but Rocafort is the reason why RHATHO is amazing, in artistic terms. :)

Oh my god...This is real? Seriously?! First they screw up her origin and personality, & now they can't get her to look right? She's one of the most visually appealing characters in DC and they they can't find an artist who can draw her as well as Rocafort did? What is wrong with DC these days? >_<

Rocafort needs to come back, his style was perfect for this book. T__T I tend to read the art before the dialogue so the new artists have been killing me.
