CBR Review: Detective Comics #855

I recently reviewed Detective Comics #855 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "In the lead feature, Williams is beyond words. I am not sure the proper descriptors exist to properly sum up what he, along with Dave Stewart, does. But, I’ll give it a shot. Like some of the best cartoonists in comics, Williams crafts exquisitely designed pages that function both as a large work of art but also function almost perfectly on a panel-to-panel basis. Many artists focus on doing one or the other, but to illustrate lavish pages that need little context to appreciate and tell the story with clarity at the same time? Well, Williams may just be the best artist working in superhero comics today."
