    Gwen's supporting cast gets a chance to shine in a strong chapter that balances tension and humor while edging the story closer to boiling point. Outstanding work from guest artist Chris Visions brings a complementary vibe to the established series style. Great issue, but not the one to jump in with. Read Full Review

I was most impressed with the cool cityscape backgrounds during Detective Stacy's run-in with Matt Murdock, although detailed backgrounds are rare through the issue in general. The perspectives from having Detective Stacy and Murdock on a rooftop while Castle is mixes it up on the street below made for some cool scenes. There are a lot of simple pastel backgrounds otherwise, which somehow just work because Rico Renzi's color choices are consistently fun and amazing. Read Full Review
