Seven Soldiers of Victory Book One - Grant Morrison, J.H. Williams III, Simone Bianchi, Cameron Stewart, Ryan Sook, Frazer Irving, Mick Gray So Grant Morrison was raised by back issue bins. Here, he shows his upbringing by revisiting mostly forgotten characters from DC's past. The idea is to use seven mid-range characters in (mostly) new forms in a team book where there is no team. The characters won't meet, but they will have a common enemy. I feel like I can't give a full review until I've read the entire project. I need to see how it comes together before I can fully pass judgement. But so far, I'm enjoying myself. This particular volume had the prologue issue, Shining Knight and Guardian's full four-issue miniseries, and most of Klarion and Zatanna's. Klarion's is by far my favorite so far, though the last issue of Shining Knight was great. Zatanna's feels kind of disconnected, like Morrison didn't really know what to do with her. Shame.
