I have to give full marks to Sean Phillips for his work on the cover designs, as it's great to see an artist putting that extra effort into making the cover into something that really grabs one's attention. This issue's cover certainly manages to reflect the idea that Holden is in for a rough time. As for the interior art the most important element that the art has to sell is the idea that Holden can no longer be reasoned with, and Sean Phillips does a lovely job of selling this idea in the opening pages, as Tao finds his efforts to talk with his captor continually rebuffed by a shot to the face. The art also does some fantastic work on the more shocking sections of the issue, from the panel where Holden pulls the trigger to the big reveal moment where we see what happened to Tao. The art also effectively pulls the rug out from under the readers in the final pages as it presents Holden's happy ending before the next page reveals the truth of the matter isn't quite so happy.
