One Issue At A Time

Seven Soldiers of Victory

Written by Grant Morrison with artists J. H. Williams III, Simone Bianchi, Cameron Stewart, Ryan Sook, Frazer Irving, Pascal Ferry, Freddie Williams II, Yanick Paquette and Doug Mahnke, Seven Soldiers of Victory was a thirty-part story. It was split into an opening issue and concluding issue, and the remaining 28 issues were made up of seven four-part storylines, each focusing on a different “soldier” who made up the team.

As we’re just as bonkers as DC’s editorial were when they first commissioned the project, we invited seven “critics of victory” to each take on one of the four-part miniseries, alongside a secret extra critic who wrote about the opening issue. Seven Critics of Victory! With, uh, eight critics involved in total. Read along below!
