Hmmm.....since comics is an art based medium, I would say art can carry a title even though the story may be lacking. Proof of this was recently shown in the early 2000's Dan Jurgens run on THOR with John Romita Jr. as artist. Although the names Azzarello, Miller, Claremont, Smith and Moore can easily carry a title, I think art has a lot to do with a comic's sales and popularity. Example: Metabarons.
