    Stuart Immonen is a fine artist, and while there are moments when I find his figure work to be a little distorted, for the most part is work holds up to scrutiny quite well. He turns in some lovely work on the action, as Spiral's various attacks sell the danger that she poses to the team. There are also some fairly impressive single images, like the panel where Bobby discovers a new power trick, or the unsettling image that Jean provides when she returns to the battle. Plus, while long time fans are sure to notice that they've seen the final page visual before, it doesn't rob the image of any of its dramatic power, and it makes for a great teaser to carry readers into the next issue. My only quibble with the art is that the book looks to have slipped back into the habit of offering generic action shots for its covers. I thought it had gotten over this hurdle. Read Full Review
