    Danger Street #7 is an excellent return from the brief hiatus that this book saw over the last few months. The book starts at a 10 and ends on an 11 with all the pieces in place allowing for the narrative to move forward in fun and new ways.

    This book is similar to Rorschach, in that issues can be incredibly compelling while keeping you almost completely in the dark, but this one sets itself apart by having a much larger scope and scale. It’s easily one of the most experimental and fascinating books King has ever put out.

    Danger Street #7 is a remarkably engaging issue, especially when one considers how much of it is devoted to the concept of waiting around. After a brief hiatus, the series continues one month after the events of Danger Street #6 as many of the disparate actors are drawn together for the first time. These new encounters and scenarios create abundant opportunities for suspense as reader expectations are upended in both shocking splash pages and one-liners that upend existing relationships. It’s clear that the story is arranging itself for whatever sort of climax it has planned as it enters its second half. However, what’s most impressive in issue #7 is the clear sense of humor. Lady Cop (or Chief Warner) spends the entire issue in a waiting room in the series’ funniest, and most relatable, gag to date, and one that plays for far more than laughs. It’s small exchanges like those had by Lady Cop that drive the action forward and each dialogue exchange is utilized to characterize these strange individuals. Wherever Danger Street is heading, it’s clear that the best is still yet to come.

About the Author: Tom King

Tom King has emerged as a beacon of narrative brilliance in the comic book world, weaving tales that resonate deeply with both long-time enthusiasts and newcomers alike. With a unique blend of emotional depth and complex storytelling, King’s work has redefined what it means to engage with the medium of comics. From his groundbreaking run on Batman to the introspective Mister Miracle, King’s portfolio is a testament to his ability to explore the human condition through the lens of the superhero genre.

Before becoming a household name in comics, Tom King embarked on a path far removed from the world of capes and villains. As a former CIA officer, King’s experiences have infused his storytelling with a palpable sense of realism and gravity, setting his work apart in a crowded field. His transition from espionage to comics might seem unexpected, but it’s this very background that enriches his narrative voice, allowing him to craft stories of heroism and sacrifice with authenticity.

King’s ascent in the comic book industry began with The Vision, a series that turned the Marvel android into a tragic figure struggling with the concept of family and humanity. This work, characterized by its melancholic exploration of identity, laid the foundation for King’s reputation as a storyteller capable of blending superhero action with deep, literary themes. His ability to humanize iconic characters, making their struggles and triumphs resonate on a personal level, has earned him critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase.

However, it is perhaps his work on DC Comics’ Batman that has most profoundly impacted the comic book landscape. King’s Batman is a figure shaped by vulnerability and introspection, a departure from the invincible hero trope. Through arcs like “City of Bane” and the poignant Batman Annual #2, King explores themes of love, loss, and redemption, offering a fresh perspective on the Dark Knight’s mythos.

In addition to his superhero narratives, Tom King has ventured into the realm of creator-owned projects, such as Strange Adventures and Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. These works further showcase his versatility, delving into science fiction and cosmic drama while maintaining his signature emotional depth and complex character studies.

Beyond the pages of his comics, King’s presence in the industry as a thought leader and advocate for the medium is undeniable. His candid discussions about the challenges of mental health, the creative process, and the importance of storytelling in contemporary culture have made him a respected figure among peers and fans.

Tom King‘s contributions to the comic book world have not gone unnoticed, earning him multiple Eisner Awards and solidifying his status as one of the most influential writers of his generation. As he continues to push the boundaries of comic book storytelling, King’s legacy is that of a visionary who reminds us that at the heart of every superhero story lies a deeply human tale waiting to be told.

For those who seek to explore the depths of narrative artistry within the comic book genre, Tom King‘s body of work offers a rich, introspective journey into the soul of modern heroism, proving that within the fantastical, the most profound truths of our existence can be found.
