    The art is actually the most striking part of the issue as it didn't initially look like a Fathom title. There's a ton of detail on the pencils and it really gives the characters lifelike qualities. Alex Sanchez is the lead artist with finishes from Peter Steigerwald and John Starr. The three artists work really well together and I couldn't even tell there were three artists on the title until turning back to the front page.In general if you're a Fathom fan then this issue is actually a pretty big deal as it reveals a big chunk of history in Aspen's life. As a newcomer to the series and being vaguely familiar with the title, I still really enjoyed it. I couldn't recommend it to new readers, but I would definitely say to try the series from the beginning as it lays out a lot of the overall plot to the title and ties up some loose ends.
