    The art style chosen for S.H.I.E.L.D. #7 fits well to the mood of the story. A style that brought out how grim this meeting is between Skye and her farther. Less defined lines than the rest, darker color scheme, and expressions that could speak volumes on their own. Specifically those of Skye seeing her dealing with the pain her powers are causing her. The scarring on her face is new for those who are aware of the struggles which come with Skye's powers. The message is stronger when you can see that Skye needs more than just gloves to hide that she is not normal. Only small disappointment is that Hyde doesn't look as intimidating as he should. You know they are trying to make him look like less of a brute, but overall that is what he is. The intelligence should come from what he says and thinks. Read Full Review
