    I'm looking forward to the wrap-up of this issue (and Flashpoint) and the (possible) future of the team as an offshoot of the JLA. Read Full Review

    Secret Seven is a series that deserved more space than the Flashpoint framework allows. You can't have payoff without proper build-up, and so what might have been a strong climax to a longer story is instead merely truncated and abrupt. Read Full Review

    As I said in the last review, this mini-series is not my cup-o-tea, but this issue is immensely better than the first one because it covers a few other characters, instead of just one or two. I'm very disappointed that this book is taking a completely different turn than I thought it was being presented in the first issue, but it looks like the last issue should be a lot of fun. I just think there's way too much going on in this new universe in this three-part series for people to enjoy. Issue three should be pretty decent though. Borrow it. Read Full Review

    For a series that ends in one issue, we still have a lot of fundamental questions left, including what the Secret Seven actually is. You'd need a much more intriguing issue to sell that kind of confusion. Read Full Review

    The second act of the Secret Seven series definitely works better than the first, but that's admittedly not saying a heck of a lot. I like the cast of characters being drawn into it as Shade was a favorite way, way back in the 90′s of mine and the use of Amethyst was a big plus as well. Abrakadabra has some really fun moments as well as he deals with his role in the book but overall it's another piece where things are shifting and moving, but it's unclear of why and why we should care in the larger context of the event itself. I like the characters and it has a trademark Milligan move at the end that's brutally displayed, but it's not one that's really drawing me in hard and demanding you come back, except to see if it does eventually make any sense.

    This is a book I expected a lot from, but with each issue the disappointment has grown. It's rare I'll say this about a comic with only one issue to go, but I won't be back to find out if it can sink any lower. Read Full Review
