CBR Review: Spider-Man Noir: Eyes without a Face #2

I recently reviewed Spider-Man Noir: Eyes without a Face #2 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There’s a strong dissonance between the art and the writing in Spider-Man Noir: Eyes Without a Face #2, particularly in Carmine Di Giandomenico’s colors, which are bright and cinematic, very much like the neon, washed-out look used by some animation, and don’t match the darker tone of the script. Sometimes, a dissonance of this sort between art and writing help a project by illuminating some portion of the subtext, but, in this comic, the gap between the two is distracting as the script calls for a dark, moody feeling and the art delivers a bright, polished world where style seems more important than substance."
