    Dev Pramanik does some excellent work with the art in this issue. There is a sense of energy and movement from the panels as they tell the story. The Duncan Idaho interlude is one of the more visually dynamic moments from the issue. Read Full Review

    Overall, this series has yet to fix fundamental issues (namely: its purpose). And the glut of characters yet barren plot is frustrating. However, the art has improved and represents the visual splendor of the property in far better light. Read Full Review
