In this issue we see the conclusion to the Hybrid storyline and it is handled expertly. We see Lois at her ace reporter best and Jimmy Olsen as the hopeful assistant in training trying to keep up with the bullet train that is Lois going after her story, namely what the heck is the Hybrid contagian and where did it come from.
As far as the art chores for this book what else can you say it's Tony Daniel, one of the best storytellers of his generation. The amount of skill and talent that he has is really remarkable. He is a great artist but also a phenomonal writer as well. His action scenes in this book are really well drawn and executed.
The inking is expertly handled by Norm Rapmund and Batt and really help to bring out the grace of Daniel's pencils. Some of the textures they did on these pages were pretty great.
This comic also contained a backstory "The World of Krypton" written by Frank Hannah with pencils by Philip Tan. Philip Tan needs to be drawing a monthly book! That's all I'm saying about that, with inks by insanely talented Jonathon Glapion.
But as much as I enjoyed the whole package of this book there was a singular constant that really made this book special to me and that was the coloring of Tomeu Morey. Yes, Tomeu Morey.
Who is this colorist? I've never seen their work before but I was completey blown away by the way he handled the color pallette. Now colorist don't usually get alot of ink but let me tell you this Tomeu is one great talent. There are some images that look like paintings in a museum. His work, to me, can be summed up in one word, "STUNNING!"
I will be looking into more of this Tomeu's work it is that good. Check it out for yourself.
Well that is all I have for now until next time be as good as you can be.
