    The ArtArtyom Topilin and Lee Loughridge have been a tremendous team all throughout I Hate This Place and this issue is no exception.  The harsh lines of Topilin reinforce the tension and dangers of the farm and surrounding environs.  As always, the linework has excelled through action and this issue has many opportunities for Topilin to show off.  The colors by Loughridge pair especially well with this issue.  There are multiple panels where the colors are used to highlight the characters, lend a sense of urgency to the art, and emphasize the Starks' story.
