You're being way too kind to McDaniel. He's much worse than you described
Yes, but you must remember, Scott isn't just an artist. Especially these days, he does double-duty by coaching and instructing writers - such as John Rozum - that he is paired with on how to better craft their stories.
The stories were nice, but the Scott McDaniel art was butt ugly. Sketchy, cartoony, with arms and legs bend in weird shapes, strange, curvy heads and faces. Sort of like Humberto Ramos in a real bad way.
Greg Land was decent afterwards, but that was when he still was a penciller not a tracer.
I enjoyed the series as a whole, except for the Bruce Jones run. I thought Wolfman's run was decent as well, if not too thrilling^^
