    Comicosity - Aaron Long Aug 13, 2014

    Original Sin #7 is an entertaining, action packed comic that is full of huge moments befitting an event this large. Aaron and Deodato are primed for a big finish, and I can't wait to see how they wrap this one up. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 14, 2014

    As I've said in past reviews of the Original Sin series, it seems like the entire point of the series (other than generating spinoff series, of course) is to retire the original Nick Fury (that would be the one who's been appearing in Marvel's comics since the early '60s). Frankly, I didn't see anything in this issue to change my mind. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Lune Aug 15, 2014

    Overall This is an issue that works better as part of a greater whole (understandable for the seventh part of an eight part story). All the character building and story beats have led to this, and this issue serves to set up what looks to be a suitably epic finale. The flashbacks may be more vital to the overall plot, but its the present, brutal clashes that steal the show, and the marriage between the two halves is what really makes this issue work.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 13, 2014

    If you've been wanting some good old fashioned superhero fighting superhero action, you're in for a treat. Most of us have an affinity for Nick Fury and the recent revelations over his status have us all wondering what's next for him. For the time being, we get to see him take on the Avengers. And it's pretty glorious. Jason Aaron is still peeling back the layers as we wait for all the answers and Mike Deodato gives us some amazing pages to stare at. There's only one more issue left in this series. There's no telling what will happen next. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Aug 17, 2014

    All in all, this was a decent issue, but the thing is that Aaron has dragged out the mystery for far too long and we still don't really know what the "Original Sin" is. There are lots of different things here that could be "Original Sin" but there is just too much uncertainty here. Hopefully the finale will clear it all up and Aaron is able to redeem himself at the end! Just one more issue to go! Read Full Review

    Original Sin is a great story but has too many questions. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Aug 15, 2014

    Original Sin #7 had all the elements to be an outstanding issue. Unfortunately there were a few things that held this issue back from reaching that level. But even as this issue does not get to the quality it should be at there was a lot to like in this issue. Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato showed us a Nick Fury that wont let anyone get in his way, not even the Earths Mightiest Heroes. The Avengers interaction with Nick was the heart of the issue that helped make the anticipation for what happens next harder to wait for. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Aug 14, 2014

    I know that this issue is largely to provide some ‘splosions and the requisite battle. The battle in question is written and drawn well, too. Aaron's done a very good job satisfying all those demands while still crafting a compelling story that keeps the reader guessing. I think, when all's said and done it may have been better if it was an issue shorter and more intimate in its scope, but otherwise, this remains one of the best Marvel events in years.

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Aug 13, 2014

    There is one more issue left. I'm hoping it ends on a high note. I believe it will. The people on this title are so extremely talented and I just want to know where I went wrong in thinking this was going to be completely different. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Aug 15, 2014

    Sadly, this is the first Marvel event I actually following live, and it's a shame that it's not a good one. Next issue is the final one, and I hope it will make up for the mess we already have (even though I hardly doubt that). Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Big Phil Aug 17, 2014

    As a full issue this one isn't anything special. I think that this book suffers from being released in issues and that it will read better all as one. My biggest problem with this issue is that it failed to make itself interesting outside of the next issue that's coming out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Aug 13, 2014

    After how deep and operatic Infinity turned out to be I was so excited by the concept of Original Sin. To find it has become hindered by being too prolonged and near crippled by an almost insulting over use of cliff-hanger tactics is nothing but disappointing. There's still one issue left for the story to redeem itself and close doing justice to what seemed like such a sure thing back at the start. For now Original Sin #7 does deliver some bangs for our buck, but any revelations about the how and the why of this story it seems are being saved for its finale. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Aug 15, 2014

    With only one issue to go, it's uncertain whether Aaron and Deodato will be able to wrap everything up in a satisfactory finale, with all the questions still in the air. That said, if the reader has come this far, it will be hard to resist picking up the last issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 14, 2014

    As Original Sin nears its conclusion, the books various laws have really started to overtake it. The pacing is choppy, the mystery feels artificially stretched out, and even the characterization is suffering. It's good that Deodato's art is event-worthy, because that's about the only element that's still functioning in this book. Read Full Review

    Fanboys Inc - Cody Mudge Aug 14, 2014

    With only one issue to go there is virtually no hope that this series will be compelling as an eight-issue story-arc. That means that this series must also be judged in a few months time when we have a chance to see how many compelling stories are told in the aftermath. The good news is that we learned some pretty cool stuff a few weeks ago with the announcements at San Diego Comic-Con so heres to hoping that while Original Sin might be a bit of a steaming pile, its status-quo changes wont be such a mess.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 13, 2014

    It is abundantly clear the purpose of this series is to reveal the ultimate sin from Nick Fury and to focus on him. For an event series though, where are all the other characters? The setup seemed to suggest it'd involve many characters, but really this is a solo book about Nick Fury and nobody else. Bah to that. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 16, 2014

    Welp, looks like Original Sin is going to limp to the ending, dragging out this non-story for every issue it damn well can. Sheesh. Just end it, already! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 13, 2014

    There’s only one issue left in this event and there are still so many questions and so few answers. These are not only questions about whatever shred of a plot might be left, but also about the validity of event books in general. Obviously, they’re meant to help introduce change in a world that can be fairly inflexible sometimes. It’s much easier than to introduce new publishing initiatives, but readers will grow frustrated with a main title that doesn’t deliver a satifying story. If most of the changes are introduced in tie-in books around the Marvel Universe, might the line be better served with crossovers that didn’t feature a main narrative book? Maybe those questions are all we can take out of Original Sin. As it stands, this book is every bit as disappointing now as it was promising at the start of the series, and that’s a shame.
