    Unfortunately, the art is another matter entirely. Kelly Yates just can't match Sturges' level, and the result winds up being a very flat, uninspired book. Panel construction and angles are repeated time and again, with many characters sharing the same faces or expressions. There are some instances that it feels like The Doctor's head has simply been cut and pasted throughout the book, no matter how awkward it might seem. Many panels are distorted as Yates tries to find a balance between realism and classic cartooning, but it never finds consistency. Figure work is awkward, and everything feels as though it exists on the same plane, page after page. Luckily, Sturges' script is the star of the show, with issue #2 being particularly dialog heavy, deterring your eyes from the art whenever possible. Read Full Review
