Review: Infinite 7 #1

i7_1_cvr-a-regFor centuries, a secret world government has employed the INFINITE SEVEN, the world’s greatest assassins to do their dirty work. The only way to become one of their members is to prove your worth by killing one of their members. But what happens when Anthony Zane, a teenage boy from the suburbs does just that? Action hero archetypes are re-imagined in what is sure to be the blockbuster series of the year!

The first issue of Infinite 7 is an interesting one, playing off of action film stereotypes with characters that we’ve seen before (especially if you grew up in the 80s). There’s the Schwarzenegger-esque character, the take on Bruce Lee complete with Enter the Dragon outfit, a version of Snake Plissken, and more. And just seeing that alone made the comic enjoyable and fun. If that’s all writer Dave Dwonch was planning, it’d be entertaining. But, Dwonch gives us a twist at the end that I’m not ruining that here. And that twist is where the comic goes from lampooning a decade of films to doing something a bit different, and what that is we’ll see in the second issue.

Dwonch throws in Anthony Zane and as the story builds you’re not quite sure how he fits in. I did my best to ignore the descriptor text, so I wasn’t sure what to expect in how he fits in the comic. As we move along, you get a bit better of an idea until the end and when you think it’ll all go one way, the story veers in another, and with that I was hooked.

Infinite 7 #1 is a fun action comic at times sending up the archetypes we’ve seen before and at the same time celebrating them in a way. It both makes fun of and revels in it all too. And weirdly it had me excited to see what familiar things we’d see in future issues, it feels like part of the fun.

The pencils by Arturo Mesa and colors by Geraldo Filho drive home that fun and excitement in a way by recognizing the silliness of it all and exaggerating the scenes and actions much like the characters are exaggerations. It’s clear Mesa and Filho are in on the fun as they channel what made 80s action movies great with testosterone-fueled scenes and action sequences that can only be described as over the top. The fun story translates into fun art and vice versa.

I didn’t quite know what to expect with Infinite 7 and while I thought the series was going to go one way, it surprises me and goes another keeping me on my toes and bringing something new to this type of story. The one bad thing about an early review is I have to wait that much longer for the second issue, but that also gives me more time to think about where it’s all going and then be proven wrong and surprised, much like this first issue.

If you’re a fan of 80s action films like Commando, Escape From New York, or its recent incarnation in The Expendables, then this is a comic for you.

Infinite Seven is Action Hero Archetypes Re-Imagined. Check out the Preview.

For centuries, a secret world government has employed the Infinite Seven, the world’s greatest assassins to do their dirty work. The only way to become one of their members is to prove your worth by killing one of their members. But what happens when Anthony Zane, a teenage boy from the suburbs does just that?

In a release, writer Dave Dwonch shared:

I’m a huge movie and pop culture nerd, and Infinite Seven is my love letter to all the things I loved growing up. GI Joe, MASK, James Bond movies, over the top 80s action flicks and martial arts masterpieces– they’re all in there. Filter all that through my warped brain, sprinkle in secret societies, blend with a little Piers Anthony, and you’ve got the biggest, baddest team book on the shelf. These are action archetypes you know (or think you know) playing in the same universe. The set pieces are huge, the action is off the charts, and the book has heart. A lot of that comes from the art team. If I’m the screenwriter of this ‘action movie’, then artist Arturo Mesa is the director, and colorist Geraldo Filho is the special effects supervisor. They are incredible!

Infinite Seven is an all-new monthly ONGOING series with interlocking variant covers for issues 1-4. It’s written by Dwonch with art by Arturo Mesa, colors by Geraldo Filho, and covers by Mesa and Kirbi Fagan.
