    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Oct 7, 2004

    First off I have to say I loved the cover to this issue as it perfectly captures the central "don't trust anyone" theme that drives this series, though I'm not quite sold on the bright yellow backdrop, which did seem to conflict with the darker tone of the image. As for the interior art, I have to say there were a couple moments in the episode where I felt the issue went a little overboard when it came to conveying the darker mood, as the opening battle is a little difficult to follow, and the key scene where the fall-guy is set up could've been more clearly presented. However, the art also does a wonderful job capturing the cheesy nature of the origin story, and the most effective moment of the issue is the scene where the shape-shifter attempts to use his power to make his escape, as his mounting desperation is perfectly captured by the art. The scene where he's struck down by the assassin's bullet is also a powerful image that puts a solid visual capper on this side-plot. Read Full Review
