The level of detail in Cormack’s illustrations enhances the immersive quality of the comic, bringing the nightmarish world of Castillo Lazarus to life. The color palette employed effectively sets the tone and mood, contributing to the overall atmospheric impact.

The meticulous attention to detail in both art and colors plays a crucial role in the comic’s success. Each panel is a visual feast, capturing the dark and intense emotions of the characters and the unfolding events. The collaboration between Cormack and Birch remains strong, with the lettering enhancing the visual storytelling and guiding readers through the narrative with finesse.
