    As for the art of Marco Castiello and GG Studios, I'm not sure how well suited it is for such a supposedly grounded story. Castiello's slightly exaggerated pencils would feel more at home in a book like Avengers: The Initiative. Actually, Marvel might want to keep him in mind next time Stefano Caselli needs a break. It's not bad, I just don't feel it serves the story well. One segment has a Skrull hunting humans in the confines of Stark Tower. This segment should carry a horror/slasher movie feel, but the proper interplay of shadow and camera angles is never there. Juan Doe's cover, though exaggerated itself, is a much more fitting example of how this story should look. Read Full Review
