Straight Forward Reviews – ALL NEW FATHOM #7 (vol 6)

Writer – Blake Northcott

Artist – Marco Renna

Publisher – Aspen

Review by Jeremias de Leon

Story

A simple spoiler free synopsis, is that after the events of the previous issue, the threat of the Typhos seems to be dealt with. The true villain has revealed himself and Aspen seems to be in a tough situation because of this villain’s new tyranny.

The effects of social media and censorship are shown pretty well here. Sure, in real life we don’t have attacking underwater super humans, but we do have a lot of crazy events. We have people of all types of opinions and beliefs and it really does seem like there’s people out there who are trying to make it seem like their narrative is the only one that matters or that should exist period.

Oh, and there’s some funny moments and some cool action at the very end. That should be mentioned of course.

Art

There hasn’t been a single time during this entire series where I could say the art looked bad or even slightly off model. This issue is no exception to that.

Verdict

All New Fathom has me hooked. If you’re new to the series, it might have you hooked on the art alone. But add Blake Northcott’s story and satirical skill and you have a winner. Pick this up. All New Fathom #7 gets a 9.5 out of 10.
