Throughout the book Rob Leigh's inks add depth Mr. Amancio's pencils. Leaguer's stand out against the backgrounds, and the thicker line work on say the Martian Manhunter's jaw when superimposed on Hawkgirl ready for battle creates the illusion of dimension that goes off into the panels. Mr. Kalisz's colors work on the characters themselves. On page three for instance, he uses a very soft brown to heighten the sense of Hawkgirl's sinew. He creates the illusion of light being cast and sweeping over her muscle and those ever-important fleshtones.
