This comic was definitely interesting and entertaining.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
For centuries, a secret world government has employed the INFINITE SEVEN, the world’s greatest assassins to do their dirty work. The only way to become one of their members is to prove your worth by killing one of their members. But what happens when Anthony Zane, a teenage boy from the suburbs does just that? Action hero archetypes are reimagined in what is sure to be the blockbuster series of the year! Collecting issues 1-4 of the ongoing monthly series.
I was a bit curious how this volume would end, but they did kind of make it obvious for us. I really liked the concept, but the end product was pretty ‘meh’.
There was a lot unexplained, I thought. BUT, I can leave some leeway, because it is a comic. What I can’t? Things that happen and aren’t talked about or explained which have consequences. I’m really talking about how Smash went to Anthony’s house to kill Mavara without the team and she wasn’t there, just a boy, a boy who killed him and replaces him– YET NO ONE ON THE TEAM WANTS TO ASK ANTHONY ABOUT IT OR WONDERS WHY THEIR INTEL WAS WRONG. It is frustrating.
I also didn’t think Anthony was given time to shine yet, although this might change since he will be changed in the next volume. There are parts of the story I am curious about– not about the villians since we don’t know what they want or how??– but the side stuff like the girl Anthony left behind and Sherlock. That is interesting stuff right there!
I probably won’t be reading the next issue, but if you like more mature comics with secret government heroes, then you should totally check this out.
