Secret Wars #7 Review (2015)

Readers may have been a bit down after the last issue. The previous edition was centered more around background information, recap, and behind the scenes surmising to the narrative. It clarified more of how, when, where, and why. To be honest, in virtually every story, there appears to be one issue set up to replenish the gaps, tie up some loose ends, and usher in the culmination to the narrative. Now that fans have moved past the climatic issue, does this installment prove to be more action-packed? Is this issue more exciting than the last?

Like the last issue, this reviewer brought up the parallel to the creation story in the Bible to Jonathan Hickman’s SECRET WARS and noticed a few similarities. However, the Bible only speaks of the creation of “our” universe. So, and this critic poses the question, was God once a man? Let’s dive into SECRET WARS #4 by Jonathan Hickman and explore what comes out on the other side! Continue reading Secret Wars #4 Review (2015)
