This issue worked really well as a follow-up to the first arc, being a brief 2-part back story showing Denny Doll's fall from Art Ops leader to artist/villain. I wonder if the living artwork that behaved like king Kong toward his shop girl is actually an existing piece of art? I was glad to see this story slow thing down and get really focused on Regina and Denny and how their relationship ends, setting things in motion for the story's first arc. The art on this book is really solid, I like that the story is building on itself in meaningful ways here, and I LOVE Allred’s cover art. So this book is pretty well up there, in my opinion. I just always want more action and dynamic storytelling from this book, because it is such a creative and wide-open sandbox to play in, you can really get in and mess things up, and then just live with the consequences, because nobody else in the Vertigo Universe has to deal with the fact that the Statue of Liberty is deformed or disfigured or has disappeared entirely. So go big! Make crazy stuff happen, just because you can!
