Summary
This second volume features the continuing exploits of four of the seven soldiers, and collects KLARION #2-3, SHINING KNIGHT #3-4, GUARDIAN #3-4, and ZATANNA #3. Independently, each of these characters is featured in a story arc that redefines their purpose in the DCU. But their stories also interweave with the other Soldiers' tales, and tells a grander story of a devastating global threat to mankind. Together, these reluctant champions must arise and work together to save the world...without ever meeting one another!

Review
In the second set of stories featuring four of the titular seven soldiers (a 1940s superhero team whose original members Morrison has replaced with obscure, neglected characters from DC's long roster), Klarion the Witch Boy makes his way from his subterranean home to the surface of New York City, the Guardian meets the mysterious newspaper publisher who hired him to be his in-house crimefighter, the now-powerless magician Zatanna learns that her new protege, Misty, has a surprising past, and a yet more unexpected secret about the time-traveling warrior called the Shining Knight is revealed. The heroes' paths are converging, but they remain unknown to one another even though all are battling the same menace, the Sheeda, a race of interdimensional demons that attacks Earth every few centuries. Considerably tamer than Morrison's genuinely experimental early superhero work (e.g., Animal Man) and his nongenre titles, The Invisibles (1996-2002) and The Filth (2004), Seven Soldiers is still relatively innovative and satisfyingly complex. And if never remarkable, the artwork--each story has a different illustrator--is consistently compelling. -- Gordon Flagg (Reviewed 05-15-2006) (Booklist, vol 102, number 18, p32)
