Image Comics, Rick Remender and artist Jerome Opeña are to release their fourth and final story arc of the bestselling fantasy series Seven to Eternity beginning with issue #14 this November and climaxing with an over-sized seventeenth issue. Here’s Remender’s thoughts on his journey to Seven to Eternity #17:
“We’ve spent over half a decade on this series, and everyone involved has worked themselves to death to make sure we land the plane in the same high style we launched it with. Jerome and Matt have put an ungodly amount of love into every single panel and we are all so excited to share the final leg of the journey with our patient readers.”
In next month’s issue, Adam and The Mud King must make a final sacrifice before it does. The origin of the Springs revealed. One giant evil consumes everything, and you celebrate it excitedly.
Here’s what I originally thought of this bold new series way back in 2017 for Tripwire online:
“In Opeña, Remender has found a talented and imaginative artist to confidently and capably bring to life a sci-fi fantasy series of this nature… With this being so sci-fi/fantasy influenced, you may be reminded in Opeña’s art of the worlds of Flash Gordon under Alex Raymond’s masterful nib, or Al Williamson too. The whole series, stylistically and artistically, has something of an echo of past masters about it.”
A great series then, and a great series still. And, at 17 issues, an easy epic go recommend to mates without them breaking the bank.
Seven to Eternity #14 will be available on Wednesday, November 18th.
Seven to Eternity #15 on Wednesday, December 16th.
