REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: Though only one artist, Audwynn Jermaine Newman, received credit for pencils in this issue, there is a clear change in style in the second half of this issue. The art is drastically improved by the change in styles. (There are three inkers credited on the issue, and which pages the three inkers worked on is uncredited.) While the second half of the issue cannot make up for the terrible art or carelessness of the storytelling in the first half, it is a pleasant surprise.
