    Travel Foreman's work does have its moments. While his backgrounds are a bit sparse and his characters look unnaturally stiff at times, the art holds up its end when it comes to the clear presentation of the writing. In one great sequence in this issue, Joe's body is removed from the hospital, and the abrupt quality of the violence makes the scene far more effective. The art also nicely conveys the dark and decidedly sinister quality of the scene where Joe's stepfather is busy detailing the dirty little secrets about Joe's mother. And in the scene where Joe decides to end the man's life, there's a great little visual moment where Joe's actions mirror those of his stepfather. In a rare appearance, Dale Keown provides this issue's cover, and while it's always nice to see new work from him, he does offer up a rather stock image that I don't expect will catch the eye of most fans.
