    This series might not be for everyone, because Orlando and Rossmo do not skimp on the horror, but it's one of the most inventive series in the DC stable right now. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 24, 2019

    The search for the missing Ashley Addams is finally right at the center of the story where it needs to be. Orlando and Rossmo have found the pulse of the action as the mini-series reaches the beginning of its second half. With all of the establishing action well and fully out of the way, the mini-series should have no problem finding its way to resolution with a strong sense of momentum.  Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 24, 2019

    The series is scheduled as a 12-issue maxi-series. It could easily return as an ongoing, or as a second series. I'm fine either way so long as the storytelling retains the high quality established here. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jul 24, 2019

    Martian Manhunter #7 was a lot more tense than I was expecting, and was a different pace and tone in comparison to the other single issues. This is one of my current favorite series on comic shelves as we speak, and it's brilliant to see them continuing to push forward so confidently with each issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Jul 24, 2019

    All in all, this is a solid issue, featuring clear, straightforward storytelling with, for the most part, tightly controlled dramatic beats, and some effective and engaging characterization. Rossmo's art is mostly excellent and delivers some real impact during action sequences and this issue's big horror reveal. The excitement tails off a bit towards the end of the issue, but this is nevertheless interesting stuff.  I was down on this book in its first few issues, but this is much better. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Aug 1, 2019

    This was a bit of a slow issue (I hesitate to use the term "filler," but... well...), as Steve Orlando struggles just a bit to keep the narrative momentum up now that his flashback scenes are concluded. It's still a solid and utterly unique read, though; here's hoping that the miniseries' remaining installments are able to regain the slack from this issue's slow exhale. Read Full Review
