CBR Review: Butcher Baker, the Righteous Maker #1

I recently reviewed Butcher Baker, the Righteous Maker #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Providing the line and color art, Huddleston makes Casey’s script his own, using a variety of styles to give each pages and sequence its own feeling and look. Butcher Baker, for example, is drawn with harder, sketchier lines, and never appears in color (aside from the pink glow) until the final page. Cheney and Leno, on the other hand, are drawn with much cleaner, controlled line work. He can shift from cartoony comedy (the car chase scene) to more traditional, ‘serious’ action, like when Butcher Baker begins his mission. The shifting styles works with Casey’s seemingly off-the-cuff improvisation style of writing, lending an ongoing energy to the comic."
