    Darick Robertson does a wonderful job on this issue, from capturing the sense of urgency during the opening scene as Kurt tries to save the life of the dying Barney Franks, to the character's look of desperation on the final page as he gets a good look at how far out of his element this case has become. The art also does some solid work when it comes to capturing the magical domain of Amanda Sefton, as we get a great establish shot of her castle, and the serpent guardians made for a decidedly creepy visual. There's also some nice work when it comes to capturing the emotional states of the characters, from Kurt's look of horror when he realizes the flames aren't going out, to Amanda's expression when she learns about the knotted rope. The brief appearance of the demon was also a powerful image. I also have to make mention of the lovely cover by Greg Land, who once again proves to be one of the best cover artists in the industry, as that's a lovely shot of Nightcrawler. Read Full Review
