further explores Harvey Dent’s fractured psyche, providing insight beyond a man
obsessed with the number two. He also struggles with the other personality

Carmine Di Giandomenico’s artwork is exemplary. He includes a remarkable amount of detail, but not so much so that it becomes a burden. It enough to enhance and strengthen, and then allows Plascensia’s colors to complete the sense of action or place. Together, they convey an almost animé style to the storytelling. That may sound old hat, but I don’t recall seeing it done so effectively.
Regretfully, one of the problems I’ve always had with extended story arcs is I get bored, perhaps sooner than others. This is chapter four, and I’m ready to see things wrapped up. It’s an okay story so far, but I have yet to be overly impressed by it.
7/10 (mostly for the art)
