…Javier Pulido’s distinctive art has been a key element of this series’ identity, which makes Ron Wimberly’s equally distinctive — but very different — art a noticeable change of that identity. As with Jaws, it may be a decision borne out of practical concerns, but the effect is actually quite stunning.
The way Wimberly draws Jennifer, it’s easier to believe that her feelings are real. For this one issue, she can slouch on Shocker’s couch drinking a beer with him, her knees splayed just as wide as his.
