After a few issues of having one-too-many subplots moving just a little bit too slowly, this issue ramps things up a notch and has everyone moving into place for an exciting showdown, the Dead Presidents, Amon and the Fossars are all converging on Galatea’s lab, and it looks like the big Lovecraftian event is going to happen soon. But amid all of that epicness, Roberson still finds time for some nice quiet moments, like the really rather sweet dance between Ellie and Francisco, and the revelation that Amon’s Leopard is actually a Were-Leopard and oh yeah, his wife. J. Bone made a good fill-in artist, I don’t think anyone can really match Allred on this book, but his cartoony style fits the tone well, and considering the debt this book owes to Scooby Doo, it was appropriate. And before I forget… Zombie Lincoln was way cooler than it should have been, I normally hate lazy Atomic Robo-style historical mash-ups like that, but it was funny.

I agree that Zombie Lincoln was cool. I also loved seeing Ubasti.

Overall, I didn't mind J. Bone as the artist this issue, but, like you, I don't think I'd like to see him as a permanent artist on this book

Agreed. I loved how he drew Kennedy, but after those initial pages, I kinda got a little tired of the style, despite how I liked how he drew the women. It felt far too Scooby-Doo ish visual wise and would grate on the series if he was on it long term.

Fortunately, the writing was still as strong as it has been for the past 6 months and I can't wait to see what happens in this title for the rest of 2012.
