    Philip Tan's radical shift in art style is appreciated, but it's only in these past two issues where said style has seemed to click. The problems with too little detail and too much murkiness in the coloring are largely fixed now. On occasion the civilian characters could use some fine-tuning and additional detail. The art isn't much for displaying subtler emotions, but in terms of conveying action and elevating the grim tone of the story, Tan is succeeding admirably. On the whole, the series is on a major upswing. Too bad that development comes just as the creative team is due more a major overhaul in a few months. Read Full Review
