I thought this was an improvement, not a huge one but an improvement nonetheless.
The dialogue was much better than in previous issues, the action scenes where better planned and the characterization was more solid. Unfortunately, Williamson needed to follow Liefeld's plot which means more annoying Zealot, but on the other hand, in this issue we see the introductio of Jericho. I think it's time for a family reunion.
Do I need to mention the art? It's not great, but compared to the one we had it's on the level of J.H. Williams.
