    Jock brings his very best to visually create what Carey was writing down. The more stunning shots are of the more gruesome moments in the book, something present in the first and second issues, creating a strangely beautiful out of the disgusting. The panelling present in certain sequences are pointed and intentional. One scene in particular of the death of a certain character comes to mind, the two main panels of the character running are distantly surrounded by smaller panels. The isolation and helplessness is conveyed almost solely through the panel choices over the pictures themselves. Jocks heavily contrasted art coupled with colourist Lee Loughridges distinct palette creates visually effective art fitting to Careys script. Read Full Review
