    Brandon Peterson's art is fantastic. He does a wonderful job with the pencils and inks. His Silver Surfer is one of the best looking versions of that character I have ever seen. Peterson's great art makes this solid comic even better. Great writing and great art, such a rarity in comics. Peterson's art also has the nice realistic edge to it that has been a staple of many of the Ultimate titles. Read Full Review
