Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

DC's current yearlong "crossover" event, 52, which corrals diverse superheroes in one serialized story, is enjoying heavy sales, but last year's crossover epic, Seven Soldiers, is much worthier of fans' attention. Revamping second-string heroes from DC's long history, Seven Soldiers enjoys two advantages: scripter Morrison, who brings challenging complexity to the time-spanning tale, and first-rate artwork by a talented lineup of illustrators. This final collection of the series focuses on three of the heroes--Mister Miracle, Bulleteer, and Frankenstein--before Morrison weaves the multiple narrative threads into a final confrontation with the Sheeda, demons that have pillaged Earth for centuries.

Format: Paperback
This hugely inventive series comes to a close in this fourth and final volume, as the Seven Soldiers gather to defeat the evil Sheeda from obliterating the world.

Mr Miracle faces down Dark Side and his Anti-Life Equation with the help of Aurackles; Frankenstein travels to Mars to fight Melmoth, the husband of the Sheeda Queen Gloriana, before travelling through time to present day Earth and joining the fight; Bulleteer faces down the woman who had an affair with her husband, leading him down the path to his premature death; and Shining Knight takes on Gloriana in a sword fight.

While I've liked Grant Morrison's take on these little known characters, I felt this fourth volume was rushed and somewhat lacking in any clear resolution. The characters he spent the first two books building up - Shining Knight, Klarion the Witchboy, Zatanna, and Manhattan Guardian - barely figure in this final conflict, and Manhattan Guardian's story basically ends with him getting back together with his wife.

Bulleteer's storyline felt very disconnected from the others as she basically refused to be a hero and ended up trying to save the life of the woman who brought this detested new life upon her.

The only storyline I felt gave the book any gravitas was Frankenstein's, who in this book is a kind of Hellboy-ish character. Doug Mahnke's artwork is spectacular and with Frankenstein's adventures on Mars and with SHADE, I wished the whole book had been about him.

As for the Seven Soldiers, well they don't really meet, and I don't really know what happened at the end. There was a fight but the action was so splintered it's difficult to know what happened or what the outcome was or even really what the point of it all was. I suppose the journey was enjoyable enough.

The four volumes of 7 Soldiers are a complete story and it really can't be reviewed until the last one was published.

Morrison had a few goals with this series, first was to create new, interesting characters readers will want to see again. He certainly succeeded at that. I'd be happy to revisit any of the characters. Well maybe not Shining Knight, but almost any of them.

The second was to create an overarching story that would only be clear when you read the entire body of work. In this he sort of succeeds. There is a story there but because it is told in bits and peices. Some parts feel redundant, we read them several times over. Other parts feel incomplete as readers scratch their heads and wonder what just happened and why.

Finally he wanted to tell some good superhero stories and that is hit or miss. Some are great, others fall flat.

In all it is a good work and worth buying but readers should not expect a new Watchmen or another Invincible.

A great finish to one of comics' most amazing miniseries events. Morrison wraps everything up and although figuring it out took more than one reading, the series as a whole is a winner.

The Sheeda don't think of Lucky 7, at all. In fact, they take it pretty seriously to go around exterminating groups of 7, because of prophecy that one day such a bunch will do very bad things to them and their ambitions.

Our intrepid bunch of solo but linked seven end up being the ones to stop 'em for now.
