    The art alternates between two different artists, and I'd guess that scenes involving Barbara's surgery were handled by Eddy Barrows, while Joe Bennett delivered the action heavy material if there are two artists on a single issue, then this is a reasonable way to go about it, and they are similar enough that the transition between them wasn't too jarring. Eddy Barrows does a nice job on the emotional moments, with the reunion of Barbara and her father being a highlight, as well as the faces of the two women on the final page. As for Joe Bennett's work on the big brawl, it seemed too clean, with characters lined up like little toy soldiers with very little overlap, but there's also some lovely, wince-inducing impact shots - overall Im pleased with his work on this issue.
