    The art changes four pages in and then changes three more times after that at random intervals. It seems like Mark Brooks drew the six or so pages he liked in the script and then let Dan Panosian do the rest, and it is jarring, especially the first one. I turned the page, flipped it back, and flipped forward again to see what was going on. It just looks bad, and it happens multiple times. But Mark Brooks is a capable artist already familiar with the story, considering he drew it for the New X-Men series this story ripped off. His art is expressive and can handle the action very well. But Panosian is of a different quality. Its more cartoon influence and looks directed to a younger audience than Brooks. The men have very square jaws and chiseled features in a cartoonish kind of way. The art switching back and forth is distracting, unfortunately, and with a noticeable change in quality, it suffers.
