    This brings me to Philip Tans art, which still hasnt resonated positively with me as of yet. It still reeks of McFarlane in all ways, with the distorted characters and the overall business of each panel. There were few bright spots in issue #157 other than the opening and closing splash-pages. Otherwise, this was yet another exercise in how to draw an over-the-top superhero/horror tale that in no way connects with its readers. It fits with Hines story in mood, which is the only saving grace for this highly detailed yet unoriginal artwork. However, this is one case where a single comics story is so mind-blowing and enthralling that the artwork is almost secondary. Therefore, I would recommend issue #157 highly to any mainstream comic fan, though you definitely want to pick up at least a few previous issues beforehand, simply so you can appreciate the great twist at the end of this issue.
