    Grim visions: Irving outdoes himself with this issue, somehow mixing up dire, macabre irony with a real sense of fun and beauty, even in a palette thats mostly black and blue. Its not been a particularly easy ride, but it has been a fascinating, stylish, gloomy and Gothic good time. And if the last installment was a little too Lost Boys for me, well: Even mothers can make mistakes, offers Klarions, in a very nice little summation of all of Grants subtext. Read Full Review

    Assuming he survives Seven Soldiers #1, where Klarion might fit in the DC Universe is uncertain at best. But that is perhaps the characters greatest strength: DC has nothing else like him. Sure, there are a few goth characters, like Raven in Teen Titans, but not really, and not with such an intricate and inspired background as Klarion. Perhaps his place is not important; theres no reason Klarion should need to interact with Superman every few months to be a viable character. If played correctly, Klarion the Witchboy could join Sandman as DCs pop culture property. Read Full Review

    Frazier Irving's artwork truly blew me away this issue. The subtle, distinctive expression registering often the same emotions on multiple blue faces helps shape the denizens of Klarion's world as people rather than plot devices. Read Full Review
