Sean Phillips tells the story in a very effective manner, as he makes full use of the heavy shadows to convey the sense that these stories are playing out in a very sinister environment, but the darkness never becomes overpowering, as it's very easy to follow the action on the page. The art also manages to nicely sell the more unsettling elements of the story without getting too graphic, as the brief glimpses of the aftermath of Tao's attack of that first squadron is far more effective that actually seeing the assault, and the attack that Lynch suffers through later in the issue is wince inducing without getting too sensationalistic in it's delivery. I was also impressed by a couple facial expressions as Tao's look of victory as he stands over the downed Lynch is a great visual, as is Lynch's look of quiet fury as he's told to abandon his efforts to recapture Tao. I also have to say I continue to be greatly impressed by this issue's cover designs. Read Full Review
