    Defenders #7 hits with a bullseye. Between the fights, the conflict, and the villains, it is a fantastic read and one of the best single issues Ive read in some time. I cannot recommend this one enough. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    It will be a sad day when this book is done way too early. It's a masterpiece in every way. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it certainly reminds everyone the potential there is in what these books are capable of being. If Bendis leaving marks the end of this title, at least keep this art team together for another book. Read Full Review

    Brian Michael Bendis would do this right before he leaves Marvel for DC. I was getting a little bit tired of the storyline in The Defenders and thought, well, with Bendis leaving, that will give somebody else a chance to reinvigorate the series, and then Bendis hooks me back in with the Defenders #7 and has me worried about who has this series after him now. Whatever the story, maybe if David Marquez continues to do art like this, then I will stick with The Defenders for a long time to come, because this issue was absolutely incredible art-wise and everyone needs to pick up this issue just to look at his mesmerizing work!

    Like all of Bendis' current Marvel titles, The Defenders doesn't seem in any particular hurry to get where it's going, which calls into question whether Bendis can give his story a proper finale when the time comes. But as David Marquez remains the biggest draw with this series, the slow, measured approach certainly has its advantages. Read Full Review

    Thank goodness for David Marquez. What could have been a fairly threadbare issue of Defenders is rescued by the fact that the artist executing the book is a freaking beast. Read Full Review
