    Jerry Ordway has a style that is nicely reminiscent of the style that I grew up with, and while it might not be as flashy as some of the present day styles, it does a very effective job when it comes to the basic elements of comic book art, which many of today's artists can't claim. The action is clearly rendered, and the big impact visuals like Power Girl's physical effort to bring Sand to the surface are effectively presented. The emotional power of this issue's final page is also worth a mention, as the look of surprise of the woman's face to this development does a wonderful job of carrying readers into the next issue. There's also a nice bit of visual deception as we see Sand's dream romance clashes with the reality of the situation. Read Full Review

    The final issue of JSA I hope to buy is a horrible disappointment. I bought this issue and the last solely for Jerry Ordway's artwork, and something mars the very purpose of purchase. Perhaps it's McKenna. Perhaps, it's Prentis Rolins. Maybe the art editor's to blame, but somebody took Jerry Ordway's undoubtedly beautiful pencils and turned them into trash. Read Full Review
