The X-Axis – 7 August 2011 Posted on Sunday, August 7, 2011 by Paul in x-axis
No podcast this week, but regular listeners will surely want to check out our special bonus video thing, one post down. Thanks again to the Thumbcast for actually making the video.
But now, this week’s comics. It’s a week relatively light on
X-books, and big on interesting new releases – I’m sure we’ll come back
to one or two of these on next week’s podcast. (Any suggestions, stick
them in the comments thread.)
Flashpoint: Secret Seven #3 - I’m not
really feeling this one either. George Perez is of course far too busy
working on the September relaunch to draw this, so we get fill-in art
from Fernando Blanco and Scott Koblish – which is perfectly acceptable,
but not George Perez. More fundamentally, this story about the Secret
Seven self-destructing doesn’t really work as a self-contained plot.
The basic idea is that the Enchantress is a traitor and she’s
manipulating Shade’s powers so as to trick everyone into killing one
another (except for Abra Kadabra, who just walked out). But since the
Secret Seven were never shown to be a particularly significant, or
effective, or even ever-functional-in-the-first-place group, there’s no
real sense of tragedy in them falling apart – and I honestly have no
idea what the subplot about Abra going public had to do with anything,
unless it shows up somewhere else in the crossover. Conceivably this
could be setting up something for Justice League Dark - even as
foreshadowing for the idea that anyone who follows Shade in the new
book is probably going to wind up dead – but as a story in its own
right, it’s not very satisfying.

“Something’s going very wrong.”
Friday, July 29th, 2011 By David Hyde
their identities revealed to the world, the Secret Seven are more
vulnerable than ever before. So vulnerable in fact, that they start
slaughtering each other from within. But who is to blame for these
casualties? Which team members can be trusted? Could the rumors that
someone on the team is working for Aquaman or Wonder Woman be true?
It’ll be up to Shade The Changing Man to figure it out and put a stop to
the traitor who is responsible before any more innocent blood is shed.
Even if it means sacrificing himself.
FLASHPOINT: SECRET SEVEN #3 is written by Peter Milligan, features art by Fernando Blanco and Scott Koblish, and hits stores on Wednesday.
