    In short, Matt Fraction is able to mold old mythologies with newer ideologies to create something wholly his own. In response, Christian Ward doesn't falter in exploring new ways to creating art and laying out his panels. If you like Matt Fraction's work, you'll find yourself pleasantly challenged here. If you like beautiful things, pick it up just for Christian Ward's amazing artwork. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Sep 18, 2015

    This series is starting to transcend comics and become good art; it's confident and focused with a solid point of view, yet open enough to interpretation that readers can take away what they choose when experiencing the story. "ODY-C" #7 takes chances and makes bold choices. Readers looking for a series developing its own unique universe should jump in. Read Full Review

    It's easy to get lost deciphering the story, but that's okay because you also get lost in the wonder of Ward's stunning, hypnotic images. The artistic storytelling here is some of the most captivating you will read in comic books today. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Sep 17, 2015

    Ody-C continues to be a good, unique and challenging read in how Fraction presents and directs the story. Some of the momentum has waned in the wake of going away from such an incredible character that guided began the series, but there is still some really good stuff and progressive story to find here.

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Sep 16, 2015

    Fraction's meandering storyline in Ody-C #7 is partially redeemed by Ward, who creates dizzying tapestries of red, yellow, and purple intermingled as brother fights brother in the flashback scenes about the founding of Q'af. Later, he uses a neat digital frosting effect to show how the children of Q'af are prepared to become the bloody bride and husband of their kings before cutting to red to show their inevitable deaths.Ward's art and color choices do a better job of engaging with the story's themes than Fraction's narration, making his contributions the number one reason to pick up the book.

    An epic story with provocative and compelling themes hindered by dry dialogue, Ody-C remains frustrating in its beautiful illustration but disappointing narrative. Read Full Review
