BAD THING: Artists Chris Batista and Keith Giffen are no Kevin Maguire. It's not that the artwork is bad, really - it's just that the faces look odd and the details of the faces of the characters rushed. This wouldn't be so bad if it didn't seem like they were trying to imitate Maguire's style at certain points in the comic... and failing miserably.
GOOD THING: That being said, the writing is still top-notch all around. And I welcome any storyline that gives us more Big Barda.
The Final Verdict: Still the Best Book You Probably Aren't Reading.
