    Kevin Maguire is an artistic genius when it comes to the delivery of the facial expressions of the characters, as there's no one even close to matching his ability to sell the humour with a simple shot of a character's face. How can one not love Guy's expression when L-Ron tries to insult him, or his face when he gooses Mary Marvel? In fact, pretty much every panel that features Guy left me smiling. Even when he's not on panel Guy is able to make an impact, as how can one not love Billy Batson's face when he learns Guy is living right next door? The panel that features Booster as he prepares to answer Blue Beetle's question about his marriage was also a hilarious image, as was the panel where Booster is having his conversation with Power Girl. However, my favourite sequence in the issue would have to be the series of panels where Guy mends fences with Mary Marvel, as the emotions of all four characters are perfectly captured by the art.
