Stand Still. Stay Silent.

Beauty, as they say, is only skin deep. As I’ve said in other reviews, I don’t find art quality a strong predictor of how much I’m going to enjoy a comic, and that’s because I’m here for the stories. Yes, hideous art can ruin an otherwise enjoyable story if it interferes with the telling, and yes, a talented artist can use their pictures to tell a better story than their words alone could, but no art, no matter how gorgeous, can elevate a worthless story into readability.
