i totally adore his art as well, but even the women have those same facial features as well (minus the squared jaw).

but he's been drawing a similar set of characters for years since the Spawn days.

look at Sam and Twitch vs his Gordon and Bullock.
different, but verrrrrry similar!

i don't really mind though!
EVERY comic artist has a set face they draw on everyone.
Neal Adams does it . . .
Jim Lee . . .
David Finch . . .

and you can't really blame them. it's hard learning to draw a face from every single angle.
SO . . . . just use similar features.

not a whole lot happened in this issue.

Capullo's art is beautiful.

Maybe the cat is a sleeper agent for the protagonist?

And did the dog seriously get to keep his orbs but the cat didn't?

PET GRUDGE MATCH. EUNUCH CAT VERSUS FREE-AND-SWINGING DOG.

i think the dog probably got chopped too?

but if you recall Morrison's depiction between the temperament of a dog and cat in WE3,

Millar might be taking a similar approach?

i'm still getting this comic because i really love Greg Capullo's art.
the story is pretty 'BLAH'. it's not something i'd recommend to anyone.

Have to agree with you; the story is just... whatever. Cliche, boring, uninteresting.

But Greg Capullo!

it's such a shame too. i've been really enjoying the sneak previews Greg has been posting on his social media.
but this story .... very boring and uninteresting!
i really feel like Mark Millar peaked with Kick-Ass/Hit Girl. he should go back to his winning formula of gratuitous sex and violence.

i can't even begin to say just how disappointed i am with the writing of this series.

Capullo is finally starting to get to show off his dynamics with the action. (what little there actually is)
but still, what a wasted opportunity.

i think Todd McFarlane (and even Robert Kirkman) were the only one's to write scenarios that would really show off Capullo's true artistic potential.
