Seven to Eternity #3
Writer: Rick Remender
Artists: Jerome Opena, Matt Hollingsworth
In a wagon Adam, Peter, and their mother are trying to find comfort in one another. They are on their way to the Mosaks because Peter is dying and the Mosaks have a healer. Even though the Mosaks’ betrayal caused the downfall of their family, but Peter’s life depends on it. Like the cowards they are, the Mosaks ignore Zeb’s call and Adam’s brother dies.
Now to the present where the remaining Mosak Knights have realized the horrors of what the Mud King has done. Now it is up to them to fight the good fight. One of them asks Adam to fight with them, to clear the Osidis name the good old fashion way. Adam, who was there to save his family’s name by possibly hearing the Mud King’s offer, declines. His anger towards the Mosaks is too great, and his family’s safety is in the front of his mind. The other Mosaks that are there begin to fight the Mud King’s minions. Refusing the King’s offer is a death sentence in these parts. But these Mosaks’ are strong and hold their own.
There’s nothing like a good sci-fi novel to get you excited and going. There was definitely some Lord of the Ring vibes going on, which I absolutely loved. Adam takes the role of reluctant protagonist. At this point you almost admire his father more than Adam himself. So I’m excited to see the character develop and hopefully he’ll begin to care about the fight he’s now apart of. Being terminally ill bring a new desperation to each of Adam’s actions. You can tell he is very thoughtful about his next move. Every panel in this story arc so far is meaningful and is able to capture this story in a gripping way. The art is phenomenal. I’m more of a story person but when Adam releases his brother…just wow. I stared at those pages for a while, just taking in the beauty of Peter’s soul surrounding the ugliness of the Mud King’s layer. It was just a great contrast. I can not wait to see where this journey takes Adam and the Mosaks and I am 100% along for the ride.
