Val Semeiks was an odd choice to illustrate McDuffie's "Blink" story, as he boasts a more cartoony style that really doesn't reflect the darker elements in the story. It is in keeping with the traditional tone for which the writer strives, though. Semeiks' designs are a bit disappointing. The blind con artist dresses like a caricature from the 1950s, making it a little more difficult to find him believable, and the wealthy man who serves as one of the key villains of the story looks far too much like Commissioner Gordon, making for a moment of confusion when he's introduced. Renato Guedes' photorealistic approach for the Superman story is attractive but stiff, and his interpretation of the Kents is unlike others I've seen, though perhaps more convincing and believable. The detail and realism conflict with the sci-fi elements, robbing the story of some of its sense of wonder. Read Full Review
