The art is excellent, being reminiscent of Michael Kaluta in spirit, but standing on its own merits and complementing the stories very well. I particularly like the sketches at the end of the Phantom Stranger throughout time. The different incarnations of Madame Xanadu are both interesting set pieces with interesting stories for each and tying together the whole equally well (though some of the characters and the ending are helped by familiarity with DC’s other works, most particularly when the Spectre first appears and promptly disappears again without being named).
