    This issue is all in the details, but theres no point describing them. Its Easter egg after Easter egg on page after page, and whether it all fits together with the tragic mystery that began the series or not, its a real page turner. Read Full Review

    Dave Stewart's colors must also be recognized. The opening page almost blares at you with psychedelic purples, greens and reds. Stewart in fact almost opens up on the story with primaries that basically belie what's ahead for the eyes. Turn the page, and you learn of all the shades green can have in Gloriana's domain. For Williams' Kirby period, Stewart makes the colors bolder as if to acknowledge Kirby's larger than life products of the brush. Subdued, natural shades swathe Arthur's quest, and with Klarion the colors grow sprightlier. Stewart emphasizes one color, the faerie blue, amid the oranges and browns of the natural world. Outwardly, Mr. Miracle is urban, but the subtext is the outre as influenced by Jack Kirby's Fourth World. For this section, Stewart creates neon flashes and Cherenkov rainbows, and that's how Seven Soldiers of Victory ends with a rainbow of hope. Read Full Review

    I would call this series a worthwhile experiment with a last chapter that is self-referential and filled with notions that need to be considered, such as whether I should lighten up on my criticism of Geoff Johns who faced an even more difficult task than Morrison given the too many hands that were involved in the creation of Infinite Crisis and its related miniseries(es).

    Morrison perhaps set himself an impossible task with this issue, and while it's just about an adequate conclusion to the Seven Soldiers saga, it's bewilderingly far from a satisfying one. The central battle between the heroes and the villain is handled well, but everything else is so confused and erratic that I can't help but be disappointed. Read Full Review
