    Mark Bagley is given yet another issue where he's called upon to deliver twenty-two pages of talking heads, but he's become quite good at keeping stories like this one visually engaging, as while his range of facial expression isn't as varied as Kevin Maguire, Mark Bagley is quickly moving up the list. I mean the issue opens with a lovely little sequence when we see Liz visits MJ in the bathroom, and how can one not love the awkward expressions that we see on Liz's face as she struggles to play the role of the understanding friend. There's also a nice establishing shot where he offers up a food court that is jammed packed full of teens, and I enjoyed the idea that all the characters in this panel are doing something beyond simply standing around like immobile background elements. It was also nice to get a cover image that actually conveyed some sense of what readers should expect to find inside. Read Full Review
