    And look at that cover - Shade hovering over a crowd of hundreds of terror-filled faces. Is that enough detail for you, James? (Insert smiley face here.) Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Jun 2, 2011

    George Perez, Fernando Blanco, and Scott Koblish share art duties on this issue, all of whom do a commendable job. In fact, the art is the saving grace for this purchase. Remarkably, the book doesn't feel as disjointed as one might think with three different artists contributing. Granted, the story is so chaotic that it could be distracting from the finer details of the artwork, but I was surprised at how cohesive this issue is. You'll get the expected insanity from Perez (what's a DC event without some semblance of Perez detail?) plus really cool new designs for Shade and Enchantress. It's just a shame that it couldn't all feel more worthwhile than a lot of cool imagery with nothing threading it together. Read Full Review

    On the one hand, you get Flashpoint characters who seem truly unfamiliar and exotic. On the other hand, they'd also seem unfamiliar and exotic in normal circumstances. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jun 6, 2011

    I'm not sure that "Flashpoint: Secret Seven" #1 holds together completely and is little more than a series of crazed moments that entertain in the moment. Those moments, though, are very entertaining. More than anything, this is an interesting comic that you wouldn't see DC publish normally and using "Flashpoint" as the chance to try something a little out there is great to see. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 6, 2011

    Unsurprisingly, Flashpoint: Secret Seven delivered on the strange and weird with plenty of disjointed storytelling that made for a confusing and uninteresting read. I really like Milligan's works over the years and I love Shade as a character and Milligan's approach on it, but the structure of this episode and how everything is playing out is just poorly executed, making for a hard read. All the time spent at the Meta Hightable provides some information but it's all over the map that putting it together doesn't make much sense. When it deals with the Enchantress storyline, it's definitely more interesting but even that feels like we're being yanked around with how it wants to get to the story itself. There are kernels of an interesting story here, but its execution only serves to keep you away from reading more of it. Read Full Review

    Heretical Jargon - Heretic Jun 4, 2011

    Maybe Im allowing love for the Secret Six book to dictate my feelings towards the Secret Seven, but I really think that this three issue tie-in series will flop on its face while the rest of the world stomps on top of it. I only hope it the next two issues are better. Read Full Review
