Sean Phillips displays a solid understanding of the material as the book is set within the confines of dark, decidedly sinister world, and the art makes it clear that there is always something more going on than meets the eye. From the delightfully seedy environment of the opening sequence, to the meeting that Holden has with the alien, the art manages to capture the underlying vibe of the material. In fact I have to give the art credit for its work on the alien creature as it a fairly simple design but still does a pretty convincing job of selling the creature's alien nature. My only quibble with the art is that there are moments when the art doesn't seem up to the task of conveying the key emotions of the story, as the temptation that the cure would seem to hold isn't reflected all that well on the character's face, and the final panel of the issue doesn't quite capture the idea that Tao has something important to hide.
