Steven Cummings art does seem to be at odds with the darker tone of the material, as it's a bright, colourful style that has real difficulty selling the darker moments of the issue. I mean there's a scene where Deadshot is putting a good scare into a pair of dirty cops, and the art seems to of the mind that the intensity of this exchange is best served by a series of mundane visuals, rather than panels that would match the intensity of his comments. The scene where Deadshot tortures the dirty landlord was also a bit cartoonish, which doesn't really help to sell the more unsettling moments of this encounter. There's also a moment where Deadshot pumps a man full of bullets, and the art really struggles to capture the intensity of this sequence.
