    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Dec 1, 2022

    Stillwater #16 is a flashback issue done right, taking the opportunity to reveal the origin of the towns immortality and shifting the books sensibilities to match the time. Zdarskys script and narration from Clara channel the tone of letters from the Civil War, capturing a longing and sense of tragedy for the loss of sons. On the arts side, Prezs linework pulls back the grotesque to play in a more subtle style that speaks to Claras tragedy. Those elements are reinforced by Spicers muted palette and Wootons lettering choices for the narrations, creating a new aesthetic for the issue that feels both in line and innovative for the title.
