Seven Soldiers: The Manhattan Guardian #4 Review

Seven Soldiers: The Manhattan Guardian #4 - Sex Secrets of the Newsboy Army!

Summary

The origins of the news boy army is revealed as well as how JJ plays into the very survival of the world right before the forces of evil try to kill Ed.

The Good

Creepy tale- There is something genuinely creepy about the tale being told here by Grant Morisson. It starts out campy enough for you to laugh at the origin and the fairy hunt but it morphs into an invasion apocalypse tale which makes your hair stand on edge. That my friend is good story telling.

The art is superb, hitting all the right notes.

Seven- The tale of JJ and his inclusion in the seven soldiers culminates here as he’s thrust into a conflict so old and so evil it’s beyond thought.

Cover- The cover presented as a newspaper was well done.

The Bad

Some will complain this issue felt like a “news boy comic” with JJ as a guest star.

The Ugly

Black widow infiltrates Klaws base as he unleashes his weapon. She refuses to kill the innocent woman and the woman it seems saves them all in the process. Klaw vanishes, they all celebrate the victory.

The Good

Good action, good ending with Shuri coming to terms with her bloodlust and willingness to lose innocents in her war.

The Bad

Cover- Ok someone explain to me why Natasha Romanov the Ex-Russian spy and former avengers leader looks like a black woman on the cover? (shakes head) Lord help me!

 Uneven art- The art plummets back to looking plain terrible this issue after a small jump in #3. It just sucks royally to look at pages where ……no pun intended……it looks like someone used their feces to draw. This is not the kind of art I expect from my comic book SORRY!

The Ugly

2.5/5
