    Darick Robertson's work is a very welcome sight on this title, as his photo-realistic style is proving to be a great match for Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's darker writing, as while this issue is largely a talking heads affair, the art does manage to convey a nice creepy undertone during the scene where Kurt talks with the young boy, and this feeling is further enhanced during the scene where Kurt slowly becomes aware of the why the children were killed, and why the young child that survived is in serious danger. There's also some nice work on the book's action scenes, from the opening fencing duel, to the scene later in the issue where we see Kurt deals with the demon possessed elderly woman. The art also offers up some highly expressive facial expressions, with Kurt's expression as he dropped the demon possessed woman in the church being the highlight image of the issue. We also get another fine cover image from the ever dependable Greg Land. Read Full Review
