A psychologist could spend a lifetime figuring out what's wrong with Danny Noonan.

    And Laphams art is the only one that could keep up with what hes doing. Every page is working within his eight-panel structure I remember him referring to as the most cinematic for his style in the paratext of the first volume of Stray Bullets. But because of the constant variations, it is hardly noticeable and certainly not repetitive. The issue is devoid of flashy multipage splashes, but this makes sense, Lapham is telling a story not fixiated on putting a bunch of superheroes against each other, his is very much a drama of human lives, no matter how crazy it gets.
