    Halo: Escalation #20 had a lot going on visually throughout the issue. That is what was impressive in this issue because it was all handled with quality work. Artists before struggled with these kinds of scenes and they didn't come out as appealing, but Ian Richardson shows that he understands uniformity and perspective. Especially when these ships are falling apart from the portals opening up incorrectly. Aside from this it catches your attention how Halsey and Jul are drawn together. It is important to recognize how these two continue to butt heads. Particularly when Halsey is constantly both the voice of reason and very bold when engaging Jul when he starts to get threatening. The colors for the most part are great, except when it comes to the capturing of the portals opening and what not because it is hard to tell what is actually going on. Read Full Review
