    First off I have to make mention of this issue's cover, as it's a surprisingly informative visual, while at the same time it also manages to convey a very real sense of menace, which is surprising given it's simply a shot of Yorick in his gas-mask disguise. As for the interior art it does a very effective job of delivering an issue that has a decidedly frivolous tone, which gives the final pages even greater impact. I mean how can one not smile at our first introduction to Yorick in the present day, or his sissy man attempt at running away from the group of attackers, which is followed by his equally ineffectual bid at playing an action hero. However, the real visual impact that this issue has is delivered in the final pages, and I have to say the art clearly understands the sheer importance of this moment, as that final page shot is the most shocking image this series has offered up.
