Wil Myerson might have been the creator of Pontius Pirate, the most popular comic in history, before he put on the Rorschach mask and tried to kill a would-be president, but he’s not the only artist who worked on the character. Other artists fell under Wil’s influence, and now all these years later, his more renowned acolyte has fallen sway to Laura, the #1 Myerson superfan. Is it possible she influenced another comic book legend into playing vigilante? The key here is that tape the detective is trying to decipher, the one with the séance that has been haunting him since the very first issue! All this and a cameo by Dr. Manhattan to boot more

    Just when I think I have this story figured out, King pulls the rug out from under me. And each time he does so is an absolute delight. King and Fornes are creating something here that transcends ordinary superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Tom King writes another amazing script here. It's his best work in a career that keeps just getting better. The artwork by Jorge Fornes is just consistently incredible. I love his work and it keeps developing as well. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 21, 2021

    Rorschach #7 is a very intriguing look into the psyches of those who are susceptible to radicalization and highlights how it can happen, the things that set people down the path to things that no normal person would ever consider. King and Fornes are doing an amazing job in this book, using the characters and events of Watchmen to tell a story that has a lot of real-world relevance. It works on multiple levels, and anyone who isnt reading it should. Rorschach has a lot to say about our world, and it needs to be heard. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Apr 13, 2021

    Overall, Rorshach #7 is a great opener for the second half of this mystery. We still don't know much, but the line between sane and insane are blurring, which makes for thought-provoking reading. I enjoyed the dose of reality that is in this issue and can't wait to see where it leads us next. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill Apr 13, 2021

    There have been some people who have said this has been a slow story in spots and there might be an issue that is not as exciting as the others, but that issue is one that really drives the story forward and you need to have that to really get the story.I highly recommend this story and this is a great issue on it’s own. If you haven’t been reading this story so far, I highly recommend the books before to help understand everything, but I guess you could read this on its own just to see the things that I have hinted at in this review.

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Apr 13, 2021

    Man, Myerson reeeeeeally lost his mind! On my first read of this issue, I was confused as heck and felt a bit drowsy from boredom. But it got way better on the second read as I now knew what the heck was going on. It's one of those ones where King wants you to be like "whaaaaaat?" for really no reason at all. But I continue to be impressed by this book as much as its existence and point befuddles me, and the more it goes on the more I'm hopeful that by the end it'll be an excellent piece of work.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Apr 13, 2021

    Jorge Fornes uses a traditional comic book style that is very detailed and expressive. Muted colors including greens and red-orange really set the tone as the reader transitions from past to present. It is a technique that transports the reader and makes the issue feel like watching an old-school detective movie. I felt the images were very well done and engaging. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 13, 2021

    Even with the odd Miller cameo there wasnt a ton of advancement to the story making this one a skippable entry in the series. Read Full Review

  • 2.0 - Christian Hoffer Apr 14, 2021

    Rorschach #7, for better or for worse, will be a much discussed comic for a number of years. It's not a particularly captivating or compelling comic"like the previous issues, we get a lot of talking and vague philosophizing and some very weird alternate universe theorizing of what the comics industry would be like in the world of Watchmen. But the real weirdness of the comic is that it is mostly a Frank Miller monologue. Read Full Review
