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.
