After much build up since the cancellation announcement, the title has a nice wind down here. Jordan does his best to answer as many dangling plotlines as he can with the space allotted. In the end, it’s a decent ending to a title that was cancelled way too prematurely.
Team 7 has been the surprise hit of the cancellations (if that makes any sense). It seems that once Jordan got past the initial arc, he found more freedom to tell a great and epic story. Repeatedly it’s been said that if he had been allowed to lead with this story, the title might have survived. For old Wildstorm fans, this quickly became the book to follow as Jordan jam-packed it with classic Wildstorm characters. It was nice to see these characters in action again.
Normally when a title is announced for cancellation, it’s hard to get excited about any remaining issues. But Jordan has made these last issues of Team 7 absolutely incredible! The tag team of Merino & Alixe continue to deliver on the art side and the introduction of an old Wildstorm character (spoiled by the title of the issue) make this series so much fun now even here at the end.
Team 7 has been amazing these last couple of issues. Justin Jordan really hit his stride with the characters and started infusing some interesting things in the New 52’s past. But rather than let the title continue with its newfound momentum, DC decides to announce its cancellation. It’s unbelievable at this point but thankfully Jordan’s greatness out-weighted the bad news for this issue.
Wow! Justin Jordan has really hit his stride with this title. He wraps up the first arc in grand style as we get an action packed thrill ride for the introduction of Eclipso into the New 52. Even Jesus Merino seemed to be on his A-game. This title is like G.I. Joe with superpowers and so far and it’s been great!
