Justice, Vol. 1

Justice, Vol. 158. Justice, Vol. 1 by Jim Krueger

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This volume of Justice has a compelling story, but it'd be worth a read just for the art.

The pencils by Doug Braithwaite painted by Alex Ross are really beautiful. I'm used to painted covers on graphic novels, but having the whole comic painted gives it a different quality than most. I hesitate to call it more artistic, but the images feel deeper.

I can see the influence Norman Rockwell had on Ross. Very cool.

With any luck, I'll get to see some of Ross's work in person. Looking forward to that.
