Seven to Eternity #5 brings another rich chapter in an adventure filled with colorful characters and tense conflict. The world stands on the brink and it’s in the hands of a tenuous alliance of mortals. With their bickering at each, the king of lies in their capture, and foes striking at every turn, their mission appears futile. Yet the march goes on.

In this issue, we see the band of Mosaks leading the Mud King along their route to the wizard who can free the world. Maybe. Along the way, they encounter the Mud King’s daughter, a fork in the road, and the return of the Piper. It brings conflict, action and a lot of dialog between the characters as they struggle with their uneasy alliance. Each of them is their own person with their own emotions, convictions and motivations. Some of them get along, and some of them do not. Yet even with their bickering, it further develops their characters. That’s a nod right there to how good Rick Remender’s writing is. There’s no wasted space. The comic opens with an excellent page of prose to set the stage, and each character’s dialog drives the story along, developing the plot, the characters, and the turmoil. It’s crafty writing and it makes for a great comic.

Sealing it all together is some nice artwork by Jerome Opena and Matt Hollingsworth. There’s imaginative creatures, lots of detail, and a smooth flow to the action and narrative. The colors keep things interesting. There’s a good meld between the two, making the art appear integral and seamless. It provides the best of both worlds.

With another great issue under its belt, Seven to Eternity continues to deliver. I give Seven to Eternity #5 a five out of five metal bikinis.
