We are so used to the fantastic political content of this amazing title we forget about its sci-fi component. Well not this time as crazy out of this world **** hits the fan and really mixes things up. Being mayor of NYC and an ex-superhero isn't enough; now we have a visitor from... someplace else.
The art is excellent and the colours spectacular as always. Never has a colourist made such an impact on me. This issue seems to have even more shine than the last with lots of attention to detail and some amazing faces. The lighting gets a lot of care and there are some wonderful scenes. There is also the most noticeable digital effect to date, an in your face motion blur which seems both comedic and out of place.
There are long explanations by both the writer and artist about their creation process and twenty pages of step by step examples of page and cover creation. It is a joy to see how much detail goes into the original pencil art.
A very, very, very high Thumbs Up!
"If millionaire playboys and nerdy highschoolers can be superheroes, why not the mayor of New York? ... Terrifically intriguing."
