    Then, there's Jae Lee. There's so much you can say about any work he does. There's such a distinctive look to his art that it almost transports you immediately into this world and keeps locks you in. While the characters often have a smooth and youthful look, Lee has a way to create such personality in each face that they tell stories of their own aside from the actual plot. All around this is a pretty phenomenal series. Read Full Review

    Ozymandias is a miniseries that always remains sturdy. They've got Veidt's attitude across within the polished art of Jae Lee and the to the point storytelling of Len Wein. The escalation in this issue is a signifier that the final three issues will be taking us along Adrian's path towards giant squids and the destruction of New York in some depth and that to me, is what could make this six part series shine. Sure, we get all we need to know from Ozymandias in the closing chapters of the original Watchmen but that doesn't stop finding out and more so seeing details about his master plan being an exciting prospect.

    As before, Jae Lee's art is what distinguishes this series. Though perhaps the book least in line with the original Watchmen aesthetic, Ozymandias is a showcase of striking visual design. There's a haunting, slightly surreal quality to the figures and their world. Lee's page composition is very eye-catching, if not always geared towards narrative flow. This is a series that manages to outdo even the best of Lee's Dark Tower work in terms of mood and detail, and the book is worth a purchase solely because of it. Read Full Review

    I think there's an interesting story here and there is some really truly some gorgeous art, but it's certainly not a book I find I absolutely cannot wait to read next month. Read Full Review
