5.0 out of 5 stars The Seven that Never Meet, part 1 1 Nov 2010
By Abel Nicolo L. Yu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Seven Soldiers of Victory by Grant Morrison

The Seven Soldiers of Victory 30-issue epic by Grant Morrison is an ambitious reimagining of 7 third tier characters by introducing new concepts and settings into their back-stories. These are basically new characters as re-imagined by Morrison. The rejuvenated mythology was intended to provide fuel for new ongoing series.
Whether these lofty targets were achieved, I cannot say because I have only read the first part of the saga. Such, my thoughts on the entire story is reserved until I can get my paws on the second volume.
The entire 30 issues of Seven Soldiers are collected in two deluxe hard covers. It presents the seven miniseries and the two bookends in the order of release. This is the best way to enjoy the story. Although the Seven never meet, but they face a common foe and their stories intertwine.
The first volume contains the first bookend, the complete four issues of The Shining Knight, The Manhattan Guardian and Zatanna. The first three issues of Klarion, the Witch Boy round out the collection. This also includes concept art by both J. H. Williams, the artist on the bookend and Morrison on the characters. Morrison's initia; designs are almost the final look for all these characters.
Seven Soldiers features strong writing from Morrison. New concepts and milieus like post-Arthur Camelot and Knights of the Broken Table;, an underground Puritan colony; and the subterranean societies that surround it like the Pirate Kings of the hidden subway are introduced in the first volume and there are probably more in the next.
The artistic line up too is a veritable dream team. J. H. Williams, Ryan Sook, Simone Bianchi, Cameron Stewart and Frazier Irving could headline their own books now, and these Seven Soldiers issues are what started their rise as comic book stars.
I really enjoyed this volume and two of the miniseries stand out for me. The Shining Knight and Klarion, The Witch Boy is two of the titles that I would have been interested to follow should they get their own ongoing series. Morrison's new takes on Arthurian legend and the Croatoan mystery, is refreshing. The art complements Morrison's strong storytelling, Bianchi and Irving are indeed rising stars in the comics business. These two would prosper if they have monthly books to showcase their art on a regular basis.
I cannot recommend this book enough and I suggest getting the second volume to fully enjoy this wonderful story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow, is not as thick as I thought it wold be 23 July 2010
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got my copy yesterday. Beautiful as it is. 400 pages of good reading. I love it...

I was really impressed abut how thin the book looks. I also got The Blackest Night this same week, and although the GL book is 300 pages, both seems to have the same thickness. Not complaining, mind you!.

I hope DC keeps doing more editions like this: Good reading with lots of pages. Some ideas might be a big ass book containing the first three numbers of Superman/Batman (Public Enemies, Supergirl and New World Order). That would add like 440 some pages. Would be awesome!.

Can't wait for Volume two of Seven Soldiers.

UPDATE: 30/July/2010
---------------------

I agree with the other review. The book is a pretty one, and the story is awesome, but the reason of why the book looks so thin with 400 pages is because the paper used for printing is so damn thin. I did had to be extra careful when reading. I was so afraid of tearing a page with a sneeze. This haven't happen to me since Dark Victory. For that reason alone I took 1 star from my review.

4.0 out of 5 stars An often underappreciated Grant Morrison gem 6 May 2011
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
When this "series" originally came out in seven individually titled, four issue limited series, I found it a bit ambiguous as to how it all fit together into one big story. In standard monthly comic book format I remember thinking that each of the individual titles were certainly entertaining enough and interesting, but each character's story seemed so conceptually different from the others that even though there was a common enemy it was hard to see it all as somehow being one big story. Reading these titles in monthly segments made for a confusing and unclear epic. But I'm happy to say that in a collected trade version, Seven Soldiers of Victory reads as a much more cohesive tale and makes the big picture much more pronounced and enjoyable. Seven Soldiers conceptually is not a tight knit contingency of characters. Calling it a loose relationship is almost an overstatement, but it's the shared adversary that stitches the whole story into a cohesive unit. It's really a fantastic and adventurous read, with some fun and unique ideas. Even characters such as Frankenstein can be turned into a very original dynamic when placed within Morrison's hands. Perhaps in no other Morrison story is Morrison's talents so diversely on display as he tackles each of these characters with such a variety of moods and fashions.

Seven Soldiers of Victory's accessibility is about medium among the works of Morrison; so relatively straight forward in concept, but still high on flair and characterization. I won't say that every character is equally enthralling, but it's one of Morrison's most fun pieces of work, yet still very epic and quite compelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 29 Nov 2012
By Alabaster Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What Grant Morrison did with this story is nothing short of remarkable. Most of these characters in anyone else's hands would undoubtedly have been forced into a cliched romp which would have been, at best, enjoyable camp. Instead, this book is chock full of fascinating insight, meaningful humor, thrilling adventure, and deeply believable characters.

Morrison's love for comic books and superheroes bursts through every page, and his unique style of crafting a story has never been put to better use. Even if the plot were weak, these books would still be worth reading for the many surprising moments of humor and profundity that could well survive out of context, but the story, as it happens, is fantastic! It can get a bit confusing at times, and you'll probably find yourself rereading a few sections to make sure that you didn't miss something, but the experience is well worth the effort.

I read both of these books in a day and I was never bored. In fact, I had a smile on my face the whole time. After having fallen in love with Morrison's Animal Man and now Seven Soldiers, it's very easy for me to understand why he's one of the most respected writers in the comic industry. This is one of the best comics I've ever put my hands on.

I recommend this heartily and enthusiastically!
