I wouldn't take it that way, dd316.
Speaking for myself, for someone used to putting tons and tons of realism and/or tiny detail into their work, a more "cartoonish" or graphic style just tends to go much faster, even though it usually doesn't meet your own personal standard for the work you WANTED to do.
Jim Lee could do pages much faster if he drew in a graphic style like Mike Mignola. Though, it probably wouldn't be as GOOD, because he wouldn't be used to working through that lens.
I took the "funny cards" comment to mean the 6 or 7 brush stroke, black and white cards we see on eBay for 5 bucks, that people barely concentrated on for a minute or two to crank out cards.
