Musabekov and Cheng inject some really good art into this issue. Musabekov is particularly good at drawing Obi-Wan himself, and making the Clone Wars hero and the old desert hermit look like the same person. His Anakin looks a little too young at certain points. But I can forgive that.

Musabekov and Cheng also make pretty effective use of inanimate clone trooper armor, as the cover suggests.

Cantwell gives Obi-Wan a nice little monologue about the value and beauty of life. Great hero moment there.

The whole Batman and Robin aesthetic aside, which yet again proves DC has virtually no idea how to write non-Batman characters, this is a pretty cool story. It imagines a world where Clark and Lois are there for Jon Kent’s teen years, with Clark taking on a very George Reeves fatherly type role.

I don’t see Chris Burnham’s work nearly as much as I’d like to. So having him on this issue is a treat. His art has a really nice texture to it, and I’ve always enjoyed his figure rendering.
