Harada’s team of “BROKEN ANGELS” confront…DIVINITY!

The telepathic mastermind. The alien assassin. The mercenary super-soldier. The mad scientist. And the killer robot with a soul. Toyo Harada has collected the monsters that will make his vision of world peace a reality. Now he pursues the most difficult and desirable asset of all – the spaceman with all the powers of a god – the outcast who can rewrite reality with a thought – the man who is no longer a man – the all-powerful being who is simply called Divinity.

    Imperium #7is an exciting issue that takes two juggernauts and creates an interesting scenario that develops both characters making them more intriguing. Harada comtemplating the chain of events since the Leviathan was ruptured reveals so much about him and Divinity, and unravels these events in an entertaining way. Despite no update on the condition of the Foundation Zone, this issue addresses the true motives and attitude in achieving that goal in a great way. I'm glad Divinity will be in more than one issue and I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Villain Smash - Brady Steele Aug 5, 2015

    Imperium #7 is a showcase for many things. It shows readers how Divinity chooses to interact with those of power around him. It also shows readers that beneath the surface, some people will never be satisfied no matter how much power they get. Players dont like getting played and its a treat to see it happen.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 5, 2015

    The only downside to this issue is that it kinda goes all over the place with Harada trying to overcome the displacements Divinity is throwing him into. They want to show the strength of Divinity's displacement powers and at times because of the page count it felt like we are being rushed through. Visually and storywise that was the main difficulty with reading Imperium #7. Now with that said, you still do find yourself impressed because the big picture is that this is a fight and Harada is on the ropes. The most excitement you get is seeing Harada stretching his powers far and thin to not only break these worlds Divinity has created, but also hold on to reality when he is aware of the situation.

    Comicsverse - Alex Nader Aug 8, 2015

    This issue tells a good story and gets into the mind of Harada, which is a dark and interesting place. While not as interesting to me as the earlier issues focusing on Sunlight on Snow and Broken Angel, I am eager to see how Harada's encounter with the entity will end. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Aaron Halverson Aug 5, 2015

    The only redeeming factor being the look into the person that is Toyo Harada. The art and writing are done well enough that I can't justify giving it less than a 3, while the plot may be a bit" “experimental” the writing is still very well done and Scott Eaton's art brings it all to life. But with the plot being what it is I would bet that you could skip this whole issue and just see how it solves itself in the next issue and not miss much. Read Full Review
