    While Grant Morrison brings a wealth of interesting ideas to the table in this miniseries, the real eye-opener of this book is the truly stunning work of Simone Bianchi. The work has a painted quality about it that can't help but leave one impressed. However, unlike many artists that employ such a style, this issue's art isn't simply a series of visually impressive pinup images, as Simone Bianchi has a good eye for telling the story. There's a lovely sequence in the interrogation room where it becomes increasingly obvious that the woman questioning our hero is far more than she initially appeared, and when the chaos erupts the art effectively sells the explosion of action. That double-page spread of the big attack is my personal favourite section of the issue. However, the final page rates a close second as that's a wonderfully unsettling piece that introduces readers to a character who looks to be Justin's primary opponent in the final issue.
