    Carlos Magno's photorealistic artwork reinforces the notion of an entire society that's been created from scratch here. I love the gritty, grimy detail of the secret workshop that Sully visits and the uneasy stillness and relative cleanliness of the Skintown church demonstrate his meticulous eye for detail. the character designs are striking as well, especially for Nix. Magno conveys the power, intellect and anger that define him. Nolan Woodard's colors are appropriately muted in tone. They add to the tension. Since he doesn't employ bright tones or starkly dark ones, he manages to add to the melancholy, despair and tension that seem to permeate every corner of this world. Read Full Review
