    Unfortunately, the art is the real factor that drags this series down from greatness. On the plus side, Tom Feister only contributes to the cover this month, leaving Mike Hawthorne to handle the interior work alone. Though the visuals are more consistent as a result, they simply aren't very good. The detail is sorely lacking in many instances, as it falls on the colorist to provide many of the finer shadows and highlights. Given that Hawthorne himself is that colorist for much of the book, you can see the problem. When Erik Swanson steps in to provide colors, the page suddenly comes alive for a brief time. The great benefit of dividing art duties among a penciler, inker, and colorist is that each is allowed to focus on what they do best. I wish more IDW books would follow this division of labor, because it seems to be a problem plaguing many of their licensed properties on a consistent basis. Read Full Review
