Infinite Seven #1

2017

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 re-imagined in what is sure to be the blockbuster series of the year!

I’m really not too sure what to make of Infinite Seven, because while I did enjoy it, practically everything felt “borrowed” from elsewhere, and if I can get everything you’re offering somewhere else, why should I bother with you? It’s a neat little story about super assassins and secret shadow organizations, but there’s very little original between these covers, and that’s a pretty major let down to me.

The writing is standard fair, and there’s some exciting moments in the story, but it never really starts to shine. There’s some good action going on, but it’s uneven and spotty, and there’s very little to hold your interest between fight scenes.

And while the art can be pretty good looking in spots, it’s also uneven, and looks terrible just about as often as it’s passable. There’s some truly bizarre poses, more than a few oddly lengthened limbs, and a whole lot of things that just stand out as amateurish.

Infinite Seven didn’t exactly bore me, but it didn’t capture my interest in the least, either. Of course it ends on a huge cliffhanger, but I really don’t care about any of it, so I’m unlikely to ever pick up issue #2. I can’t say this isn’t worth reading, exactly, but I sure wouldn’t pay full price.
