Sum it Up
I actually liked the art in this issue, it was very clean and did well in telling the story in itself. It just took me an issue to get used to the style change. There was a lot going on in this issue, but Percy did a great job of making it cohesive. I’ve always been a big fan of how he’s able to parallel our reality, and this issue is no exception. The ending has me super pumped, because I’ve been waiting for the fall of a certain character for awhile now, and Percy may finally give it to me.
