As always, it's a pain to navigate through Bachalo's art, doesn't help that the panels and dialogue were all placed diagonally which makes it all the more uncomfortable to read. The plot itself wasn't interesting, which is weird considering Joe Kelly is great. The backstory with Zemo was miles better.
