This was probably the weakest so far. Script was confusing (even by Hickman's standards) and art was still bad.

Man...even though the art was bad again, I couldn't not give this issue a 10. Hickman's script is just that good. If only someone else was drawing these, they would be the best overall issues of the series so far. Hickman is on fire.

It's really a shame the art was so bad, cause otherwise this was an awesome issue. Hickman didn't disappoint. Could've been a 10/10 if not for the artwork.

Great art, didn't understand much of what was going on, but knowing Hickman, it will eventually make sense and I'll have an "Ohhhhh!" lightbulb moment later on when we see the ramifications of what happened here. Hickman has a way of not making a ton of sense but still keeping you fully engaged and entertained as hell.

It takes me twice as long to read any comics illustrated by Jerome Opeña cause I just get caught up staring at his incredible artwork. Easily my favourite comic artist and it's not even close. Hickman's script paired with Opeña's art is a match made in heaven. Honestly couldn't ask for a better creative duo.

One of the best lines I've ever read. Hickman is a god among men in the comic industry. And Yu's artwork is top notch as per Yusual.
