Fiona Staples with a masterful pen line that the colour then fills, swoops around, explodes from and ends up doing wonderful things on the page that just maked you feel wonderful on the inside as well.

So it was a surprise to read the Green Lantern Corps: Lost Army June preview in the back of Convergence: Green Arrow today and, well, see things that looked like they were straight out of Saga.

That's just the kind of colouring effect I wouldn't expect to see in a DC comic. But it comes for the same reason that you get it in Saga, the artist and the colourist are the same person, in this case, Jesus Saiz. By not separating he tasks into a factory line, you are more likely to get things like the above. It's also apparent in a different way the Gotham By Midnight preview in the back of Convergence: Catwomant, with art and colours from Juan Ferreyara.

Compared to say the Deathstroke preview in the back of Convergence: Shadow Of The Bat, which also does some interesting colour effects, with artist Peter Nguyen working with colourist Tomeu Morey

But Jesus Saiz is just in another league, isn't he?
