    There are moments in this issue when the art is good — really good. Dexter Soy gives Agent Brand an intimidating, powerful presence in fight scenes, and I like how he draws Jubilee. There are other moments where the art style doesn't leave much of a positive impression. Guggenheim has the tough task of juggling a full cast of strong characters, and I like the focus he gives Jubilee and Cecilia here. However, this arc lacks the excitement, suspense, and emotional connection that the first arc with Arkea and Shogo had. Read Full Review
