Brett Lewis comes up with a pretty clever means to create a foo-fighter in the second story and throws in a good red herring to add a little suspicion. His partner in crime John Delaney from the The Adventures of the DCU creates eye-catching designs for the passengers and suspects aboard the flight, and his version of the gang is a welcome break in the never than less superb Joe Staton look for the animated sleuths.

While a certain similarity between the characters in the comic book to that of the television classics must be maintained, there is a lot of room for experimentation. Here, Jeff Albrecht creates some funky, postmodern inks that may be found in small press comic books. They add to the intensity of the effects, generate an unusual aesthetic and further distinguish their look from the more usual Staton artwork. [1]
