    Outsiders #7 is blockbuster stuff. An incredible story which just keeps dropping gut-wrenching reveal after reveal as Drummer finally comes clean about her past and her identity.

    It’s only been one arc, and this book is already wildly different from what I expected it to be in the best way. More significantly, it’s the best use of the Wildstorm characters since Steve Orlando’s work on Midnighter and Apollo, and the best use of the main concepts of that universe in well over a decade.

    Outsiders continue to be a sleeper hit for DC as it is continuously trippy and unique, keeping the reader highly engaged and hanging on the hook. This has become a standout for me and more people should be adding this to their pull list!

    Outsiders #7 is both a revelation and a revolution, with its creative team continuing to push the boundaries of what to expect in a superhero narrative. It’s rare that a series like this comes along, especially in the mainstream comics world, but that’s what makes this Outsiders run all the more special.

    Outsiders has been subverting reader expectations from the second it launched – weaving from the threats Kate Kane and Luke Fox are investigating to the fact that they aren’t the sole focus of the series’ story. While that approach might not be for every reader, Outsiders #7 is a valiant and largely-successful example of how it can be made to work. Even if Outsiders doesn’t have a massive impact on the canon of the DC universe when all is said and done, I’m at least thankful that it is reframing how I look at those stories.

    Lanzing and Kelly deliver an engaging and compelling story on the heel of the reveal from the last issue. It’s an entertaining and interesting trip through the multiverse and I continue to love the connections to the Wildstorm universe. The reveal creates some interesting drama for the Outsiders as well as a new and interesting arc for this series that keeps me interested.

    Carey delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. I love the visual style of this art and how it frames the different worlds as well as the characters.

    Outsiders #7 is a great read that pays off a lot of long-term comic readers’ commitment to DC. It’s a really fun read, too.

    In a nutshell, Jakita spends the entire book bemoaning the loss of her world and lying to the Outsiders. While empathetic to her reality, the harsh truth is that the forcing the readers and the characters to buy the lie wasn’t a good idea. Subjectively, its easier to understand Kate walking away than it is to continue following Drummer’s selfish beat. Writing Outsiders with the ulterior motivation of missing Planetary has made the story feel superficial. The artwork isn’t that great, but at least it’s readable in spite of the esoteric content. Overall, Outsiders #7 is a poor attempt to force another series into another. Falsely advertising this series as Outsiders may bother some readers, but others may take whatever Wildstorm content they get at whatever expense.
