    Of course my favorite part of “Habitat” is… well, the habitat. When Roy draws a spread it never disappoints; but, because of his visceral drawing style, fight scenes can feel like a real mess. Even when this makes for some hard-to-follow reading, that's not totally a bad thing. When people are murdering each other and destroying machinery and stuff is exploding and people are bleeding, things aren't cut, dry, and neat: they're chaotic. Roy captures that chaos, just a little too well sometimes. Despite how overwhelming some of these sequences are, there is usually a panel or two worth pausing on to appreciate how much detail Roy puts into a single panel, even when the story is moving quickly.
