    Lastly, the artwork was lively for what came next. That's the one thing I like most about Kris Anka's pencils and Triona's colors. No matter how whimsical or dark things get, you aren't left forgetting that these are younger characters that we are dealing with. I also love that there's nothing too consistent with the way these characters dress themselves. Read Full Review
