Ryan Sook clearly needs to be given a title where the lead character is a shaper-shifter as he looked to be having a grand old time in the opening pages of this issue with the entity that was chasing Zatanna. How can one not help but play the "spot the evil entity" game in these opening pages? The magic shop that our heroes seek refuge in is also full of fun little background elements, some of which are linked to the underlying Seven Soldiers story line, while others are just cute visuals. I also enjoyed the little visual touches like the fact that the copy of Zatanna's book that the blind woman owns serving as the doorway that the entity uses to enter the shop, and the scene where the creature attacks while disguised as a cat has to be one of the most unsettling looking visuals of the issue. There's also a lovely little bit where Zatanna uses a magical hat to gather up the smoke that the villain has transformed into, and the final fate of the entity made for a cute visual moment.

Still interesting: The third great thing about Seven Soldiers, by the way, is that each issue is also a self-contained story. Last issue an out of sorts Zee tried to figure out her dilemma, only making it worse. This issue she solves part of it, in a way that feels final but leaves the door open for whatever comes next. This is an ideally conceived, if not yet epic, comic book. Read Full Review
