    Ethan van Sciver turns in some lovely work on this issue, but then given his previous work on this miniseries, this is hardly a surprise. Still, the reason why the battle with Sinistro holds up so well is due to the sense of danger that the art manages to convey, as numerous images show the yellow impurity is deftly exploited by Sinistro, and Kyle's defeat becomes quite easy to accept. There's also a lovely throwaway image of the possessed John Stewart and Guy racing into battle, and I loved the way that John's architectural experience is reflected by the energy pattern that surrounds him. Now the issue isn't quite as impressive on the page where we see the DCU heroes about to descend on Parallax, as the image lacked the sense that this was an overwhelming attack, and this illusion is further shattered by the action latter in the issue, as the images consist entirely of these heroes being knocked back, or lying unconscious.
