Seven To Eternity is coming to end soon. First, we have one more issue to set the stage for the big finale. Seven To Eternity #16 puts Adam against the world, as his daughter, his old allies, and the Piper arrive to stop him from reaching the springs.
Rick Remender continues to make the most out of every moment. Every page feels significant. Most issues of this series are full of chaos, and this one is no different. The Piper is an exciting character and a force of nature at this point. The race to stop him and Adam’s personal race towards life are both wildly compelling. There is a lot going on in Seven To Eternity #16, but somehow everything still feels focused. It’s a tight script that moves the story along at a great pace with tons of surprises along the well.
This issue is full of powerful moments and the demise of quite a few characters. Everyone’s motivations are clear, yet they all still falter for very human reasons. Remender understands the nature of his characters and manages to make them feel real. As a result, their interactions are full of weight. This issue is full of emotional beats that make it one of the best of the series. It teases a stellar finale that Remender promises will surprise readers.
I’ve run out of things to say about Jerome Opeña and Matt Hollingsworth. The duo is always firing on all cylinders. There is no way Remender could have imagined this world looking any better. The environments are gorgeous. The character designs are stellar. The action moves through the panels seamlessly, making the most of the gutter space that separates them. Few comics manage to marry words and art so well. In only sixteen issues, the creative team has created an epic. Fully realized characters populate this spectacular world.
Seven To Eternity #16 sets the stage for a massive finale. This series has been full of incredible moments, and somehow this issue brings many more. It’s emotional and powerful thanks to the strong narrative and stellar art. I’m not sure how Adam’s journey is going to end, but I know that it will be memorable.
