    Gary Frank turns in another fine issue as his photo realistic style makes it far easier to buy into the illusion that this issue is just like the real world. I mean the art does a lovely job of making the moments where the superpowers are used all the more impressive. I've seen heat vision used hundreds of times before, but the Hyperion's face after this display of power is what gave this scene its impact. There's also a number a nice little moments, from the rare display of anger on Stan's face as he discovers what Nighthawk thinks of him, or the look of childlike delight on the face of Fishgirl when she discovers Doctor Spectrum has returned. The art also does some lovely work on the final pages as the narration details the new role that our crazed serial killer is going to play, and the final page has a genuine impact, as how can one not love the sheer evil that is captured in that final panel?
