    As I mentioned above this was largely a "talking heads" issue, and while this doesn't play to Mike Wieringo's strengths as an artist, he is quite good when it comes to his delivery of facial expressions, so his work on this issue holds up quite nicely, and all the key elements of the story are well served by the art. From Galen's haughty expression, to the looks of utter frustration and annoyance on the faces of the Fantastic Four, the art effectively sells the main plot element of this issue. Plus, the effectiveness of Galen's final decision is due largely to the art's ability to convey the facial expressions of the Fantastic Four. The expression on Reed's face when it finally occurs to him what Galen is doing is particularly effective. The art also does a wonderful job on the final page surprise, as it's called upon to capture the powers of the team in a single panel, and it does a lovely job of making it quite easy to understand what has happened.
