    The photo-realistic style of the art certainly helps reinforce the idea that this book is a departure from the more comical vibe that I entered the book expecting to find. The art also does a fantastic job when it comes to the delivery of the key elements of the story, from the idea that the dying dupe is in a bad way, to the sheer joy on Jamie's face when he absorbs the dying dupe, and flashes back to his solitary childhood. The art also deserves credit for it's redesign of the secondary characters as the emergence of Rahne's wolf form made for a wonderfully creepy visual, and Guido's continual big, goofy smile perfectly captures the character's most endearing quality. The only quibble I would make with the art is that Jamie's power is never really clearly presented by the art, and given this is an important element of the story, this could present a problem for newer readers.
