Karen Matchette's style varies widely from Joe Staton's work, but it's unfair to compare any artist with another. Ms. Matchette's style is still valid for rendering our favorite "meddling kids." Unfortunately she's stuck with a very crowded story. She must have been sent out to buy the Cheet-o's when the powers that be had the meeting about who was going to draw the story with the most characters. Simply increasing the page count of the short could have alleviated the crowded feel of the story. This would have given the story not only more panels but also better pacing.[1]
