    As far as the art is concerned, it's nice to see artist Joe Bennett settle into a regular role on this series after the title suffered at the hands of pedestrian fill-in artists. Bennett is perfectly suited to capture the necessary emotion in these dialogue driven scenes. Let's hope he sticks around for the long haul. Read Full Review

    So what will happen in the final chapter? Some of it seems simple, yet how many times have we thought that before reading one of our favorite titles. Its plain as day that not all of the royals will make it out of this book in their office, but some should save face against the inquiry that Amanda has sprung on her rivals. Its hard to imagine this book without Sasha, Bordeaux and Waller were meant to be each others foils in the book. One would think the SS will play some role in whats to come during Final Crisis with that event half of a calendar away, but to what extent? Hell, at this point I wouldnt be surprised to find out Wallers a Skrull. Regardless of the outcome, I will definitely be marking my calendar as issue #20 will be one of my most anticipated reads for November. Read Full Review
