Are we sure that some of this art isn’t AI-generated?

….that Word/ Uncle Sam one especially. It’s a fun concept very poorly executed.

Knowing what happens to Worf by the time of Picard makes these stories kind of irevilent

I’m a fan of the IDW comics but I have to admit that this is some of the worst art I’ve seen on Star Trek in years. Every cover is terrible except for Unzueta’s. The Uncle Sam one looks like it’s AI-generated, and if so shame on IDW for doing that. And the interior art looks incredibly amateurish like a teenager drew it. What’s going on here? IDW is better than this.
