    One significant area of improvement we've seen in the past two issues is the art. The series has been on a relative slump most of the year, and more than anything I lay the blame at the rotating cast of artists. The series just hasn't looked very stylish since the conclusion of "Love and War". Luckily, Rodney Buchemi brings a huge step up in visual quality. The art is noticeably more sleek and bright. And any Cho-centric story calls for some oddball visuals amid the floating numbers, all of which Buchemi handles well. Considering he'll be the artist for Assault on New Olympus, it's pleasing to see Buchemi turning in good work. However much Incredible Hercules might have tapered off in the first half of 2009, I'm looking forward to big things in the remainder of the year and beyond. Read Full Review

    Through the seventh smartest person in the world, Van Lente and Pak find a relatable and interesting character in Amadeus Cho. This issue provides readers with a quick catch-up on who Amadeus is and what he's gone through, making this a great jumping on point. As well, the final page is one of the best cliffhangers of the year. Read Full Review

    Once the story got moving, it was interesting, but I just don't care for Cho. He's just Herc's smart sidekick and having entire issues dedicated to him doesn't click with me. Read Full Review
