Would You Support Redrawn Comics?

So, Igor Kordey gave a nice interview here with Tim Leong.

Reading it, and seeing again how nice his art on Smoke looks, it really makes me feel sorry about the fact that he was so rushed on New X-Men (and I have no idea what his problem was on X-Treme X-Men).

So what I was wondering is, if it were possible, would you support special editions where a different artist came in and redrew issues based on the scripts?

For instance, if possible (as in, it would not interfere with his current projects), would you support Frank Quitely going back and drawing Kordey's fill-in issues on New X-Men?

Or Bachalo's issues?

Or Jiminez?

Or even Kordey going back and spending more time on the project?

Or do you think this is akin to colorizing films, in that it is not being true to the creative spirit of the works?

Okay, I liked Bachalo's NXM arc art a lot.

However, if Quitely drew the entire run, it would be utterly fantastic, and yes, I'd spend yet another large sum of cash to get it. But that's because it's Quitely and Morrison, and those two have created some of the greatest comics in decades.

So, redrawn comics? I'd have to decide on a case-by-case basis.

One that I would LOVE to see redrawn is Grimjack #25 (I think). Basically, with the early issues of Grimjack, you had Truman and Ostrander.
The first stories are standalone or short arc stories and seemingly unconnected... until the massive 'Guild War' Storyline.
Suddenly, we are told, all these seemingly unrelated things are interconnected... it's a brilliant storyline and, if you wanted to stop reading at that point, you could, and the 25 issue run would be one overarching story.

Tim Truman doesn't draw the last issue.
Instead, he is replaced by Tom Sutton, and where Truman's world is inhabited by vaguely tribal, lean, sinuous characters, Sutton's world is filled with blocky, Romita jr-esque Masters of the Universe types... which is all well and good except when they're drawing the SAME CHARACTER. Grr.

So yeah. Grimjack #25.
