    Dan Panosian's art has a very flat feel that is similar to John Romita Jr. but it lacks a certain something to make it excel. He has not built a unique style that separates his work from the other artists.

    All of this ignores the comic's biggest offense, though, which is that there's really no reason for it to exist at all. It picks up a story that began in Skaar's own title and that will be continued there in a few weeks – so why the need for a separate comic? And, on top of that, why pad it out with "director's cut" material if nothing significant even happens? The answer, of course, is that this one-shot will attract more customers than just another issue of Skaar: Son of Hulk, and that more pages means Marvel can charge more money for the final product. Trust me, even if you're someone who's been following Skaar's adventures from the beginning, it's just not worth it. Read Full Review
