    Clayton Henry's art is a little too open for my liking, and he has a rather annoying tendency of offering up double page spreads when the material doesn't really justify using one. However, the art does manage to capture the humour of the material, as how can one not smile at the scene where Honey Lemon's army of stuffed minions descend upon Major Mapleleaf, or the dark humour of the exchange where Nemesis offers up her less than impressive version of time travel. However, there are moments where the art comes across as a bit simplistic, from the lack of any attention grabbing visuals during the fight with Big Hero 6, to the flat looking backgrounds during Major Mapleleaf's visit into the past.
