It seemingly attracted a weird crowd back in its day. I mean, Lynch and Jodorowsky are both surrealist directors. Search the history of cinema and there's like what... 10 famous surrealist directors?

Would've liked to call that one El Duno. Lost opportunity.

Her art actually looks pretty good to me. Haven't seen much of her work outside Saga, but I love her work in Saga. It's at least a 4 in my book.

I would usually worry about the fact that I've given 4+ to nearly all the artists mentioned so far, but they're all pretty good.

At their heart, they're both escapist fantasies. Which is to say, more than being relatable, they're supposed to be an escape from reality. A wish fulfillment as mentioned ^. Superman is the strength and virtue everyone likes to possess. Dead parents and blah blah aside, Batman is all your material and physical ideals and dreams personified.

Your mileage may vary on the relationship between form and content (or even if they are valid distinctions rather than two vaguely defined constructs), but regardless, art is an inseparable part of comic's narrative and aesthetics. So yes, it is important to a comic's story, since a story would not even be a comic story without art.

More or less like other retail businesses I suppose?

Why the hell should random people even know the number of times someone had sex?

In character Tatsumaki is waaaaay more aggressive. She probably kills or KO's Storm before Storm even gets serious.
