Story

Picking up right after the previous issue left off we see the aftermath of what happened to the kid that became the new “Smash Brannagan”. We also see what seems like a tonal shift. What seemed before like a more serious story underneath fun action is now the opposite. This issue takes a big leap from previous issues and things get deadly serious.

We also see that there is internal conflict in the Infinite Seven team and it looks to be going down a deep rabbit hole. These characters have complex emotions and motivations and it’s starting to be explored here. That’s what can be said without giving spoilers. It would be wrong to give spoilers now. This has to be read.

Art

The art is wonderful in this issue. The design and layout of the pages are a wonderful touch as well. The way certain pages are framed at the beginning of the comic aren’t just stylish but they’re also a really cool way of telling the story at that point. No complaints regarding art here.

Verdict

This comic is unpredictable and it keeps getting better and better. The grittiness and emotional realness in this episode was not expected but very welcome and it’s got me hooked. Infinite Seven # 5 gets a 10 out of 10
