    Darick Roberson turns in some lovely work on this issue, as he's called upon to capture the horror movie vibe as Kurt investigated the haunted subway tunnels of New York City. Now some of the quieter moments were a bit awkwardly presented, as Kurt's new girlfriend has a face that seems to change shape from panel to panel, and truth be told the ghosts that are haunting the subway tunnels really don't strike me as being all that terrifying. However, the art does some nice work on the scene where Kurt deals with the racing subway train, and the scene where he questions the wife of the dead conductor managed to offer up some lovely visual touches, like the panel where they're reflected in the tea kettle, or the silhouetted panel that perfectly captures the woman's grief. We also continue to get some lovely covers from Greg Land, and it's nice to see this month's effort is actually linked to the story we get inside. Read Full Review
